My 5 worst would be Reunited, Just you and I, Up where we belong, Always and any and every other duet. Except Dont go breaking my heart. I sound alright when I'm singing them it just seems that the whole duet scene gets kinda of hokey. So sing solo and leave the sappy duets alone. HA HA HA!!!

Kurt, I keep getting requests to sing Slow Hand by the Pointer Sisters - I can't sing along when anyone else sings it so I am sure it is a loser. I have been wondering about singing the Conway Twitty version, it much more from a guy point of view though (which might make it silly for me - not that I don't sing tons of guy songs).
My last big failure was You Drive Me Crazy - Britney Spears. I sang this one night helping someone who wanted my help and thought I did real good, but I tried it on my own and it was a disaster.
Grateful, If it was the DK Crocodile Rock, might be worth another try on something else - DK just does not seam to be able to do well at Elton John.
1) Fly To Angels 2) Peace Pipe 3) I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing 4) Angel (another A-smith) 5) Hook
The reason for this selection is NOT 'cuz I don't like the songs (love 'em in fact), it's the high range. It's a shame , too, 'cuz I use to LOVE singing Hook, but alas, my smoking habit has taken it's toll on my high range endurance .
I haven't tried Crocodile Rock since that one time a few years ago. I have no idea what version it was. I might be able to do it nowadays, but I remember it was a complete disaster. I read the lyrics for about 30 minutes beforehand... but, it was too fast and I wasn't used to the wipe, "Crocodile Rockin'" would flash by real quick (where it sounds like croc-rockin'). And that's what threw me off.
To this day, my friends still remind me of the time I tried to "sing" it. Memories...

Well, everytime someone asks me to sing "Gloria" (Branigan) I try it again, and once again crash and burn! One Night I trashed "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" (Elton John) Tried "Do You Love Me That Much" (Cetera) killed that one Did a really awful rendition of "You" (Candlebox) And my other karaoke bomb would have to be the time I sang "Crazy On You" (Heart)
1) Photograph, Def Leppard (too damned high) 2) Foolin', Def Leppard (too damned high) 3) Unchained Melody, Righteous Brothers (blew it once, scarred me for life) 4) Symphony of Destruction, Megadeth (doesn't sound bad, it's just a voice killer) 5) Enter Sandman, Metallica (sounds good, but can't sing again after I'm done)
Warrior - Scandal: I sucked and blowed at this one Tempted - Squeeze: maybe try it again, but for afirst time, uh uh Sometimes - Britney Spears: did this one on Sunday. I'll stick to the uptempo britney
Okay, okay...I just found the original cheap on an '80s compilation (Wherehouse used bin special!), so there may still be hope for "The Metro"...

Deej: Don't give up on "Tempted" - it's worth it once you get it down.
My worst: Unchained Melody (ok I dreamed I could get that high) Baby Got Back (I'm too milque-toast-old-white guy for that, but I did get some laughs) You'll Never Find by Lou Rawls Kashmir by Led Zeppelin (I'm still gonna stick this one someday!) Kiss From A Rose - why is it that sometimes I can do it but sometimes I'm totally BAD?
Here are the 5 worst songs I've done (in no particular order):
Somebody To Love QUEEN (Damn hard to do) Johnny Are You Queer JOSIE COTTON (Never heard it, did it on a dare) Don't Worry Baby BEACH BOYS (While I do many songs with falsettos, I just can't the falsettos right on a few Beach Boys songs) One Bad Apple OSMONDS (Just terrible) Nothing Left Behind Us RICHARD MARX (Did it for Karaoke Roulette, never heard it before)
