I went with some friends to Ozzie's Roadhouse this weekend for a few drinks a little karaoke. I love karaoke and am happy to get up an belt out a tune or two when the opportunity arises. That said, a little karaoke self-awareness would go a long way toward making the world a better place.
I had a few thoughts on the topic as I suffered through one drunken fool after another take the mike.
- Pitch matters. Enthusiasm doesn't compensate for lack of pitch. Drinking more doesn't either. Neither does having a lot of friends screaming with you.
- Know your limits. Even if you sing well, not all songs are for you.
- Know your role. Not everyone should be on stage. Some people were meant to be in the audience having a good time.
I'm not saying you need to be the next American Idol winner, but at least hit a few notes correctly...
