Because I am a sad and pathetic type, riddled with the urge to get up on stages at run-down bars to sing my wee heart out in a desperate attempt to pretend that I am a rock star OR because, quite simply: ~I do rock, therefore I must sing.~ My biggest concern for BlogHer has not been the clothes, nor the sessions, nor the people that I want to meet but am fearful will shun me:
My biggest concern has been nailing down which songs I will sing for the karaoke party that happens on Friday at the BlogHer cocktail party and at the MamaPop Sparklecorn Extravaganza later that same night.
I mean, seriously, what is wrong with me?? THAT is my biggest concern for a two-day networking blitz that could help me move my blog to a new level or at least help me lead it on a path that is a bit more directed than it has been on recently?
So, since I have been so obsessed with it, I will share my list of FOUR songs that I have carefully chosen for the BlogHer party circuit. Please bear in mind that there will be 1000 people at this conference and 500 people at the MamaPop party, so I might not even have a chance to get up there and sing a song. (I promise I will not knock anyone down in my haste to rush my song selection to the DJ. I promise!) However, be warned: If anyone who reads this list, then goes off to BlogHer and picks my songs: Woe unto you and all you hold sacred. So help me, I will totally cut you, beeyotch. Kidding! Maybe. ;)
Ok, so no more stalling. Drumroll, please. Alright. Here it is:
Now, there will have to be some rejiggering of the order, depending on the prevailing winds of each party and, of course, if some bitch really does sing one of them before me. And, of course, I LOVE (will somebody please tell me how you type a heart symbol??) requests, so if you have any great ideas for a song that is in the approximate range of these ones listed.... I am all ears. :) Thanks!
1. Amy Winehouse - You Know I'm No Good
2. Journey - Don't Stop Believin'
3. Fleetwood Mac - Dreams
4. Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs - Maps
And, yes, thank you for asking, that is me in that photo up there. And, yes, I am awarding myself my very own Trainwreck Award for being such a freak about karaoke. But guess what? YOU get a Trainwreck Award for reading about me being a freak about karaoke. So there!
Post it with pride and pass it along to any beautiful, wonderful, entertaining trainwrecks that you know and love. :)
