Maybe How NOT To Get The Guy

I went to a bar last night that has karaoke to meet up with some college friends I don't get to see enough. We sat at a booth and after we all had a drink in our hands, we began to catch up and joke around. Until I hear this:

"NotVibrato, NotCarrie, and NotFlowers to the stage, please!" said to music that sounded frighteningy close to a song by Aqua.


Yes, Aqua.


Not one to ignore a call to stage, I dragged my friends up there to squeak our way through the song. "Barbie Girl"?! Seriously? I can't believe NotCharming secretly picked that for us. I don't even know the song, save for the chorus.

Anyway, we got through it, but it was not a pretty sight or sound. I'm fairly sure much of the bar was wishing for it to be over. I wanted to pick another song to redeem my street cred, but I figured it best just to let those few minutes on stage just fade into the night.

Last weekend, I made an ass of myself (with the help of some friends) by warbling "The Love Boat Theme," which has far more words than I remember. And after the show was over, I felt it was best to not sing again. Ever.

Back in 1997. I was living in an off-campus apartment with a couple of friends and we (mostly they, I swear) actually made up a little dance to that song to do at a party we were having. I'm sure one of them ended up hooking up because of it, since she was kind of a hookup queen.

"C'mon Barbie, let's go party!"

Hi! Just came across the blog during some lazy afternoon surfing...

Oddly enough, I actually had a conversation about Aqua this week. We were pondering why there were actually 4 members of the group. What possible purpose did Klaus serve? It's not like the band actually had any instruments!

Awww...you used our blog title in your post. Heehee.

The confidence to get up and sing "Barbie Girl" had to turn on at least a dozen guys!
