    Default What is your ideal singing contest song?

    As I was doing one of my many "auditions" for Car Idol on the drive to my mums place today, I wondered what song(s) I would actually sing on one of these major singing competitions (if, of course, I had the vocal range and power of, say, Mariah Carey or Celine Dion!)

    Out of today's iPod song list I chose Adele's Someone Like You, and Lady Gaga's Edge of Glory.

    What would yours be? Or am I the only loser who plays Car Idol?!

    Um...

    Probably something old. lol. Maybe At Last by Etta James. Everyone does it though, so it's pretty blood boring and I think I'd get ignored because of my naff choice. lol.

    So, I'll say House of hte Rising Sun by The Animals because I like it, and because it requires me to get a bit loud.

    Mine would be Fall At Your Feet by Crowded House. That's the first that comes to mind, there's a few others. I do love belting out Good Riddance by Greenday ... there's so many more, DP reckons I should go on Don't Forget The Lyrics. I'm a dreadful singer, but I know all the lyrics to all the rock songs we love

    I confess to a rocking out a mean Paul Kelly - To Her Door and passionate Four Non-Blondes - What's Up. Both wonderful drunken karaoke classics!
