What's "your" karaoke track?

    Assuming you have one. I have never done karaoke but if I did?

    I have always longed to do Britney. "Hit me baby one more time". It would be better if I were dressed as a schoolgirl but I'd have a go in my own garb

    OR (and for this I thank @Didactylos4 from the bottom of my heart) "Bohemian Rhapsody".

    Me. And I have a list of other people I don't want to dress like it.

    I have a vocal range of about three lowish notes and even they don't sound very good. Best if I avoid karaoke altogether. The one I most recently did was at a staff do (sigh) when a pastoral leader and I gave them "The Bad Touch". I did all the words because I can't sing, and he sang the chorus. We even threw in a little dance.
    Then he retired and left me to face the eternal embarrassment on my own.

    I have 'raoked' once in my life. Apparently there is evidence but luckily I've yet to find it ;) I can't say there wasn't drink involved either.

    I will sing along to many songs especially if in the car alone! Never wanted to do karaoke although I have sung to an audience as part of a performance. However one song I always enjoy belting out is Hotel California. It has one of my all time favourite lines 'Her name is Tiffany Twisted, she drives a Mercedes Benz, she has a lot of pretty boys that she calls friends'.

    Incidentally Tiffany Twisted was the name of a poster on here but I don't think she is on here anymore.

    If I did it, which I don't, it might be Chesney Hawkes 'I am the One and Only'.

    That was the basis of our little act - me being very matter-of-fact and him looking shocked. Until the chorus, when it changed to something not unlike the record cover.
    Just yet another occasion after which i swore I'd never drink again.

    I've never done karaoke mainly due to having an awful singing voice, but I'd like to be able to do this.

    I am also currently in a state of some shock, this is the first time I've seen a picture of the Big Bopper, I've spent my life assuming he was black.

    I'm not a great singer but I can hold a tune. I've found that I sound surprisingly better than I'd expect if I sing the song 'You raise me up'.

    Me neither, but if I was ever pressed into doing it, I have some stock songs up my sleeve, such as "Looking Through the Knothole in Granny's Wooden Leg" that I can suggest they find the music to, full in the knowledge they won't be able.

    At least I'd have shown willing and it won't be my fault if I can't perform.
