I've been getting helpful suggestions regarding future "making a fool of myself by singing for YouTube" ventures, but just had to share this. Within hours of posting my video, I got a YouTube friend request from timmf2007, which I learned is some sort of American Idol-esque competition. I clicked through a few of the videos in there and immediately decided two things:
1) these people are really good
2) I need to add some suck to the competition.
Here's where you come in: I need suggestions for the worst-karaoke-songs-ever to submit. I pretty much showed my entire vocal range in my Hungerstrike video, so I'd suggest things that are either well within that range or horribly outside it. (For instance, I think I could "nail" Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," if you used "nail" in an altogether untruthful sense. Any suggestions? Bonus points if an instrumental track can be located.
Whenever Temple of the Dog's song 'Hungerstrike' [link to YouTube video for the unfamiliar] comes on the radio whilst I'm driving in my car, I get an unstoppable urge to sing along. Because the song is essentially a duet, it involves Chris Cornell screaming really high and loud practically overtop of Eddie Vedder's really low and grungy vocal. This makes for a nice challenge -- and a nice bit of me making a fool of myself -- so I've been meaning to document it somehow.
Today I decided to share the experience with you. Head on over to YouTube to see my incredibly dorky video. Be sure to stick through it long enough to see my switching from grunge to screamy falsetto.
