@mehcuda67 We learned from Futurama they are watching all our TV signals and like romantic comedies and sitcoms from the last century. Back then when people sang badly, it sounded bad. Now the robots change your voice so it sounds OK no matter what. The League doesn’t allow according to the Entertainment Treaty of 235893.
(This’ll obviously work with any two songs whose chord progressions line up, or, even better, are different but still work with each other’s melodies. But it’s even more impressive if you can find two whose structures are similar enough that you can just take one and paste it directly over the other. Bonus points for extreme stylistic differences.)
@tinamarie1974 that is the draw for many! and i have lots of friends that enjoy doing it and watching others get up there and do their thing. just not for me, i feel intense awkwardness and secondhand embarrassment. it’s literally painful for me.
@jerk_nugget me too, pretty sure your ears would bleed if you were forced to listen to me attempt to sing.
I use to have a group of friends that were extremely talented. I loved going to listen to them, drink copious amounts of beer/tequila, sing along at the table and make fun of the drunks.
Funny story. One night we were watching a “regular” on stage, we called her ET or evil Tina - not a very nice person named Tina. She was fall down drunk and had a strapless dress on. At one point she lifted her arms in the air and her dress fell to her ankles. She stood there proudly, completely naked, smiling at the crowd. Regardless of her singing ability she did get a standing O from the male portion of the crowd!
@tinamarie1974 i have a couple friends that are particularly into it and quite good, they live on the opposite coast from me but i do sometimes sit and watch the videos they post to instagram. i guess it’s that divide between people who are actually good and like to perform, and people that just do it on a drunken whim, haha! i definitely don’t have any qualms about getting tipsy with my friends at a bar or party and singing along to songs loudly, it’s just the one person under a spotlight bit that gets me XD
thank you for the Evil Tina story, i needed a laugh today!
In a basement bar in Tokyo, with the local office staff and a customer, where the company buys bottles of Scotch and apparently “hostess” girls come to sit with you (but seriously they just sit and talk, none of that other stuff.) The only time I was ever willing to do Karaoke. I did a duet with my new friend, a Japanese engineer buddy, singing “Country Road, take me home.”
