Some Karaoke Suggestions

Ever been hanging out somewhere when some genius gets the brilliant suggestion to sing karaoke? It's usually a fun time, well, at least a funny time. Most people can't sing anyway. But standing in line waiting to sing, what do you pick? This question has plagued many a potential karaoke-r. Here, some ideas I think you should consider.

Twist and Shout by The Beatles

For one, you get to yell. And everybody knows the song and can sing along. When Twist and Shout was used in Ferris Bueller's Day Off in the 80's, it shot up the charts. This from a song released in the 60's. Everybody knows Twist and Shout!

Psycho Killer by Talking Heads

The ability to passionately deliver this Talking Heads classic, combined with the "funny" lyrics, make Psycho Killer one of my favorite songs to sing in my car at the top of my lungs.

House of the Rising Sun by The Animals

Another song most people know the lyrics to, Eric Burdon was one of the great 60's white soul singers. When played loudly the organ pierces your brain and my voice gets all raspy by the end of singing it!

Philippines Vacation: Day Five

After a day of exploring the area near Doljo Beach where we were staying and meeting a strange man, we decided to book a tour of the Chocolate Hills of Bohol. Sadly, a horrible earthquake had caused a great deal of damage. Hundreds of people died and many buildings were demolished, including multiple famous churches. The strongest part of the earthquake happened very close to the Chocolate Hills. For months, we had been monitoring the safety of the island and almost considered changing our plans for the entire country, but we decided to go anyway. In November, following the big typhoon, another earthquake occurred...

Philippines Vacation: Day Two

The next day, we woke up and went to the restaurant at our "hotel" for breakfast. It took some time to get it, but while we waited, we chatted up the staff and some of the other travelers. We were given ube to eat before our food arrived. Ube is a purple root that tastes great by itself. I loved it.

Cambodia Vacation, Part Four: Angkor Wat and More

On the morning of my last day in Siem Reap, I got up super early. I was finally going to see one of the most famous places in the world, Angkor Wat. Outside of my hotel, there were tuk tuk drivers waiting to take anyone to the sites. I basically went with the one who was the least pushy. For a pretty low price, he offered to take me around for the day. I wouldn't say he was a tour guide, but he set the itinerary and then would leave me at each place for as long as I wanted to stay.

Because my time was limited, I wanted to get through all the best places as quickly as possible. My flight left in the evening that day, so I needed to get back to get my stuff at the hotel and then get to the airport. While I would have liked to spend more time, maybe bike around on my own, now I just have a reason to visit again in the next few years!

You have to pay for a day pass before entering. It is all clearly marked and easy to do. They take your picture and put it on the pass. At various plac…
