I Feel I Failed To Impress You With My Semi-Obscure Karaoke Song Choices

I'll admit, it's not like I nailed R.E.M's "It's The End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine), but I still think it's pretty cool that I gave Glenn Danzing a run for his money with my flawless rendition of "Last Caress." I didn't even look at the monitor once!

When I high-fived you afterwards, you seemed confused like you didn't even know what you'd just heard or witnessed. Here's a clue: you just saw a girl singing one of the best songs ever and you clearly weren't impressed.

I don't even think you know who the Misfits are (which is a turn-off), because when I announced that'd I'd sing the song you shrugged. HELLO! You are on a date with the coolest girl in this whole wide room and I don't even think you properly appreciated it.

When I followed up with Roxy Music's "Love is the Drug," you seemed unimpressed as well. Clearly my karaoke song choices are too obscure for your tastes.

This is probably how American Idol contestants feel when they try and shake shit up by choosing a Killers song to sing. Fuck it. I should've just stuck to "Wake Me Up (Before You Go-Go)." That probably would've been better for all involved.

You'd impress me with "Last Caress"

Awwww. You say that to all the girls.

Maybe he thought it was odd you sang so many songs? Did anyone else get on stage?

Next time, stick with something classy like "Excitable Boy" or "Brick". 2 of my favorites.

Everyone else got on stage! We were all drinkin' beers. It was a fun time, he just didn't seem to be into anything I chose to sing. Ho hum.

I'm sorry. I'm still emotional after my favorite karaoke venue (The Media Inn) closed recently. I lashed out.

There's no comprising when it comes to karaoke! Hold out for a guy who'll sing obscure songs with you!

Erm.... it's actually Glenn Danzig -- only one "n" in there. :)

I went to karaoke one time with my previous boyfriend, and sang "Brass In Pocket" a la Scarlett Johansson, and my boyfriend could barely muster an enthusiastic shrug when I was finished. I acted like it was no big deal but I was secretly really hurt that he didn't seem impressed by my incredibly adorable performance.

So, I ran into this entry when I googled the words "impress you with my tastes" (unquoted) in an effort to find a definition or example of a hipster. Oddly enough this was the first entry.
