The Karaoke King


I spent this past weekend in Nashville with a friend from college and a bunch of other folks who enjoy The Fun as much as I do.

I told you there were others out there like me.

Anyway, I am super pumped that my girls' weekend in Nashville/Kings of Leon concert coincides with the UGA/Vandy game, 1. because I want to attend the game and 2. because this means I can have some more of The Fun with Jones. I've already bragged about his legendary skillz to my friends. He is The Karaoke King. For his part, Jones has agreed to absolutely bring it.

I quote: "You tell me the song you want me to rock, and I'll make it happen."

Internet people, I need help. Please, no 867-5309 or Jessie's Girl. He took care of that this past weekend at Lonnie's. Dig deep, be creative. Leave your selections in the comments as usual. Once I narrow down the options, there will be a poll. And I know how much y'all love a poll.

Come on folks. This man's talent knows no limit. Ready? Set. Go!

I'm going to need a performance of "Mr. Jones" as an encore. You knew it was coming.

Bowlby said...

What? Y'all are weird. I don't know why you'd even suggest anything other than Bon Jovi. Specifically, "Wanted: Dead or Alive."

You're welcome.

I assume there will be a video?

Just Wanna Be With You (Enrique Iglesias)

(ooooh ahhhh)

stephinbham said...

Alright, Jonesie. I've put some thought in to this.

"I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys.

Release date: 1999. One more band that needs to be included on the College 2.0 House Party CD. Cheesy boy bands must be a part of the experience.

My go to karaoke song is always "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves," but any Cher will do.

THE KARAOKE KING said...

What a great, eclectic mix of tunes. "Never Gonna Give You Up" is one of my all time faves. Just want to let you guys know that I can croon the rap music line nobody's bizness.

stephinbham said...

Old-school rap, yes?

How about a little Dre: "Keep Their Heads Ringin'." So glad that one made the playlist.

My best Karaoke song is "Love Shack" by the B-52s. But, of course, I'm a girl. My best Rock Band song is "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi... you've gotta watch that transition at the end, though, because it gets pretty high! Good luck--can't wait to see the poll.
