Say It Ain’t So I’m A Karaoke Virgin No More

Say It Ain't So Karaoke

I’ve had many chances to take the mic, but successfully managed to avoid singing karaoke for 40 years. Now, I’m a karaoke virgin no more because in front of a tight live band in San Diego at the end of February, I sang a song and lost my karaoke virginity.

It was glorious and so with help from some friends I went back for sloppy seconds an hour later.

They say you’ll always remember your first and I assume that’s true of singing karaoke too. I sang Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” at the official launch event for the 2017 Kia Sportage, fronting an experienced live band, and while I maybe was a tad too ‘into it’ by karaoke standards, I think the song and the mood was fitting for me — eyes closed, screaming my heart out, passionate for my newest favorite hobby. I went on 3rd that night and could’ve used the crowd to be a bit more drunk!

With one notch on my bedpost, it was time to put on a wig and have some fun with friends singing The Ramones “I Wanna Be Sedated”. I don’t know when I’ll sing karaoke again but I doubt it will be as memorable (or photogenic) as my firs time.

Thanks to Kia for having me at the 2017 Sportage launch and proving this stage, literally, for losing my karaoke virginity.

Have you sung karaoke? What’s your go to song?
