Twenty songs I have agreed to karaoke

As a fund raiser for the student biology club, I have agreed to Karaoke at least one of these songs (details to follow):

1. Beatles: Help!
2. Beatles: I saw her standing there.
3. Beatles: Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da
4. Black Sabbath: Paranoid
5. Black Sabbath: War pigs
6. Bobby Darin: Mack the knife
7. Chumbawamba: Tubthumping
8. David Bowie: Ziggy Stardust
9. Drifters: On Broadway
10: Elvis Costello: Alison
11: Elvis Presley: Heartbreak Hotel
12: Elvis Presley: Hound Dog
13. Gloria Gaynor: I Will Survive
14. Lou Reed: Sweet Jane
15. Nancy Sinatra: These boots are made for walkin'
16. Patsy Cline: Crazy
17. Ray Charles: Hit the Road Jack
18. Simon and Garfunkel: 59th Street Bridge Song
19. Tokens: The Lion Sleeps Tonight
20. The Troggs. Wild thing

I really wanted to do "Crazy" but that CD has apparently been stolen from their karaoke machine.

I vote for "Wild Thing"

Back in 2003 when we hosted a regional peace conference here at SLU on the first anniversary of W's declaration of the "war on terrorism," I actually played a cover of "War Pigs" at the conference-ending concert. It rawked. Personally, though, I'd vote to have you karaoke "Ziggy Stardust."

Too bad you can't do Crazy. I think that would be the easiest song to sing, out of the list. Although I would be tempted to try Alison, but I know from shower singing its hard. He goes so low! If you did Gloria Gaynor I Will Survive everyone would assume you were gay. Not that there's anything wrong with it.
