What would you sing at karaoke night?
“If I could actually sing karaoke, it would be a debate of which song to sing. What comes to mind is “Talking About A Revolution” by Tracy Chapman, “Runaround Sue” by Dion and “Day is Done” by John Prine. But of course I can’t/don’t sing karaoke and would not be singing any of these. “
All-time favorite commercial?
“I probably have a new all time favorite commercial every week so this is a hard one to answer. I’ll write down a couple that come to mind that are older than a week old. Southern Comfort “Karate”, Dicks Sporting Goods “The Hoop”, Apple “The Song” & Dodge “God Made a Farmer”. Ok that was more than a couple and it’s hard to pick just one. I like commercials.”
