Shot Through The Heart ...

And Your to Blame, honey you give love ... a BAD NAME ...
I play my part and you play your game ...
you give love a bad name.

Ahhhhh - soooo good. A few of my closest friends came out Saturday night to help me live up some of my last days in DC. If you know anything about me, you know I love to sing in the car, on the sofa, in the gym, really anywhere there is some good music to sing along too. And as mentioned before, I love 80's ballads - they are especially great to karaoke to. Thanks to all the fabulous ladies that came out to support - you know who you are! It was soo fun, I only wish we took some more pictures!

In case you are wondering, some other songs I sang at karaoke besides Bon Jovi?
  • Shoop - Salt N Pepa
  • Faith - George Michael
  • Black Velvet - Alannah Myles (I think this is her only hit - but it is a HIT)
And those were only the songs I stood up to sing with the microphone with my fabulous girlfriends. There was a lot of singing from our table, as you can see here:

And here we REALLY get into it ... we don't just sing ... we have hand gestures and everything because THAT is how you rock out and really mean it.

These are the girls from work - three of my best friends in DC - they put this whole thing on and really made it a rockin good time. Thanks for everything ladies! Truly you are gems.

Loves the photos and so so sad that I missed it. Stupid decolonization. Why does it have to ruin my social life as well as my work life too? Hope that you sang a couple Duran Duran/REM/Depech Mode/U2/Johnny Cash songs for me. My personal karoke fave: Ring of Fire. Gets the sushi chefs going too.
