Sunday Session – Karaoke

Standard

So, this week’s Tuesday…I mean Sunday Session hosted by (my new URL friend) Thea, is based around singing along to your favourite ditties. Must admit that I’ve only been karaoke singing once and I can’t remember what we actually sang it was THAT LONG AGO!  So, I’m going to go with the last two concerts that I’ve been to, with hubby, which were both interactive. Thankfully we don’t have to stick to the rules. Thanks Thea!

In February we had a fantastic time seeing Sting with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Riverstage here in Brisbane Thanks to our next door neighbour for looking after the kids. He got us to sing the chorus to this well known song of his…

Then, just last weekend I treated my husband to an early birthday present. (Thanks to our neighbours up the road for looking after our kids this time round!) We’ve loved The Idea of North for a while, and this is the first time that we’ve caught them live. And, the Powerhouse… what a great venue!  But I guess all the Brisbanites would know that already. Anyways,  TION got us singing their harmonies towards the end of their version of the Stevie Wonder classic “Isn’t She Lovely”. Someone had tweeted that they would gladly put “backing singer for The Idea of North” on their resume after the experience 🙂

They’re a talented bunch don’t you think? Check out their shiny new website http://www.idea.com.au/ if you want to find out more about them, including details of the current tour to launch their new cd “Extraordinary Tale”.

So, which tunes have you been singing along to recently?

  1. I’d leave a comment, but I’m too green with envy about the combination of Sting + TION to even speak right now…

    (PS – their version of Isn’t She Lovely is my daughter’s all-time fave!)

  2. Oh boy, I am going to love your Sunday Sessions!!!!!
    The one thing I miss most about living too far from Brisbane is seeing live music.
    You lucky, lucky thing. The Sting concert sounded fabulous.
    And I hadn’t seen the Idea of North before, but I was singing and swaying with them…and the audience! Wonderful!! 🙂
