Care to Karaoke two people holding microphones and singing


Take your date to a place that has karaoke and show off your singing skills . . . or lack thereof. Whether or not you’re an excellent singer doesn’t matter. Is anyone really a good singer that does karaoke? There may be a few, but for the most part it’s just fun to be up there and jam.

You could have the music track prepared for a song that you wrote on a thumb drive and then give it to the DJ and have him play it while you sing to your date—talk about impressive.

Maybe you can get your date up there and sing a song together; a classic duet like Baby it’s Cold Outside, or Don’t Know Much. Whether it’s a group date or just the two of you, get ready for a fun-filled night of rockin’ out. Who knows maybe there will be a music producer in the crowd and you will land a recording deal afterward, okay don’t count on that. But…it could happen.

What you need for this karaoke date idea: 

It’s pretty simple; just find a place in your area that has karaoke. That’s what Google is for, right? You could also get a bit crazy and dress up as your favorite singers, give the crowd a good laugh and sing something funny, or blow their minds with the most amazing rendition they have ever heard.

Another option would be to get a large group of couples together and just do karaoke at someone’s house. You could use a portable karaoke machine or just fine the lyrics on YouTube and sing without a machine. It will be a more intimate setting and people in the group may feel more inclined to sing. This could be a warmup date and then you can follow it up by going to a large bar and grill that has it available.

My experience with this date: 

A while ago, my friend planned a house party with food, games, and yes, Karaoke. My friend Leslie and I decided to sing a duet, and we straight-up crushed A Whole New World, from the movie Aladdin. When the song ended we were given enthusiastic applause, of course, and plenty of praise. Nailed it. I’ve never taken Leslie on an actual date after that night, but maybe I should; with our skills, we could go to some Karaoke bar and bring the house down. Mic drop.

On another occasion, I took a date dancing to a country bar and grill, where Karaoke was one of the attractions. We watched and listened to other couples and solo singers, but didn’t sing ourselves. I might have taken the leap and jumped up to the karaoke plate and sung . . .  if I’d had more interest in my date, that is.

I tend to think that you have to really be interested in the person if you’re willing to sing in front of a bunch of people you don’t know, especially if you aren’t the best singer. However, you might have the type of personality where it doesn’t matter who you’re with or what kind of audience you have—when the Karaoke machine calls, you answer.
