The Elvis spirit just got a hold of me and a" Whole Lot of Shaking Going On" Me and bro. in law Bill, trying out a duet of "Blowing in The Wind"
These ole boys singing "Your Cheating Heart"
As the famous once said "I Am the Greatest"
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND THE BEST ONE YOU EVER HAD ,AND MANY MORE
The title says it all. This week a couple friends had a birthday and we got a bunch of friends together for a great party, the food was good and always a fun time with friends , but as always when you get a bunch of expats and their Thai partners together , the Karaoke spirit takes over and all of a sudden, everyone loses their shyness and becomes a wantabe singer,and not to be out done , the spirit of Elvis takes over my body and my legs start to wiggle and my feet start to move and all at once this strange voice comes out of my mouth ,saying"YOU CAN DO ANYTHING BUT LAY OFF MY BLUE SUEDE SHOES",I wonder if those few glasses of wine had anything to do with it . I read that karaoke started in Japan in the early 70's and has spread around the world to become one of the all time favorite entertainment additions to every party , especially here in Thailand . And for a moment in time you are a STAR, just like that Rainstonestone Cowboy, "getting cards and letters from people you don't even know and offers coming over the phone",singing every song you can remember,from days gone by, and then all of a sudden you're off key and missed that high note and everyone is laughing their A-- off and then you come back to the present and realize that you were only dreaming and it's time to touch The Green ,Green Grass of Home, and someone takes your car keys and says we'll give you a ride home .
