Karaoke Night!

Post by Derpmind on Mon Sep 23, 2013 10:06 pm

So after a hard day's night of killing zombies, a few of us in the steam group had probably the best idea ever: Karaoke Night! We'll all make a list of songs for each other to sing, figure out a good day+time, and hop in the teamspeak server for a couple hours of epic fun.

The more suggestions for songs, the better! And don't forget to give recommendations for when would be a good time to try this.


If you don't have a microphone, don't worry. Everyone's invited, the server has a chat box, and a couple of us can actually sing.

Here's how to join the teamspeak server, for future reference.
teamspeak instructions:
Teamspeak is downloadable from over here, and the address for the PHCC is 8.9.36.41:9207 The password is 'phcc' without the quotes.

Simple, right? Any problems, ask for help and we'll try and fix it.

Someone has to sing Gay Bar, preferably some deep voiced guy.

Ah, "Gay Bar" takes me back; it was something of a group singing staple for some of my friends at school a few years back. Also "Livin' on a Prayer," "Country Roads," and the Lil' Jon splice of "Bake a Cake." Some more serious suggestions than the last one include "Sail Away Sweet Sister," "Zoot Suit Riot," "Piano Man," " '39," "The Best is Yet to Come."

However, you seem to forget that having people actually able to sing is antithetical to the point of karaoke.Spike

Hmm...

Well, my mic isn't very good, I think, but I'd be interested in this.

Since I was asked about catigories, while karaoke is about having fun first and foremost, I think there needs to be a serious and silly group. I would actually attempt to sing any Johnny Cash song, but Tub Thumpin' will be a gibberish mess by the end

SOOOOooooooo when we gonna do this? Tonight? Tomorrow night? Yesterday?

So far we have two suggestions for "Gay Bar", but it looks like whatever else we sing we're going to be picking during the event.

I'd be good with tonight or tomorrow, but for tonight I'd probably have to start after 8:00 or 9:00 Central.

Taking into account everyone's many and varied opinions, I've determined that we should give it a shot sunday (tomorrow) at 9:00 pm EST, which is around the time the steam group usually gets together.

In about an hour and a half, we're gonna start. Check to see if you can get Teamspeak working if you haven't already.

2 hours and 27 minutes later, and we're done. Thanks to everyone for all the fun, and SK for recording everything.

This was a very good time, and I'd like to do it again. I will do a less... aggro song next time, probably. Maybe. I will actually prepare, in any case, instead of fumbling around.

Ok here's the deal. Soundcloud only offers a cap of 120 minutes, and our recordings are actually over by 15 minutes. So instead, I uploaded them to <a href="http://www.mediafire.com/folder/q2thfwti5qdc9/Singalong_Sundays">mediafire</a> where you can download and listen at your discretion. I don't think we're planning on singing this upcoming Sunday, unless plans change. Also, does anyone have any good ideas for song synchronization programs like the now-discontinued Synchtube? Google Hangouts is one idea floating around. 

On a personal note, does anyone have any tips for singers? I know I sing off key, and can't hit higher notes, and am currently just practicing slowly hitting the higher ones.

It's not as bad as I thought it would be! Though anyone who's got perfect pitch would probably find the entire thing painful. Haven't listened to it much though, will do more later. I don't think any of us were capable of singing through sub-standard microphones on a not-so-quality internet. I gotta say, something about being on a mic really messes up my conversation skills. I keep on speaking before I know what I want to say, which makes me sound silly. Luckily we were all being rather silly.

For anyone who might not know, the dings are Teamspeak giving a notification for a new chat message.

Anyways, I doubt that the next one will go on for quite such a completely-ridiculously long time, but I might be mistaken. Either way anyone who wasn't at the first one is still welcome to join in for much less than the full whatever hours if they prefer.
