Last Monday, we had karaoke night here at the Rome Center. In the basement of the dorm building (well, the only building- classrooms, offices and dorm rooms are all in one big building) the Student Life Assistants set up a stage with microphones so we could all sing our hearts out. I was nervous for this at first, seeing as I can’t sing, but it turned out to be a blast!
When it first started, there wasn’t a big turnout. I think everyone was probably skeptical/nervous like I was, or they had class. As the night progressed, the music blasted throughout the building. More and more people came down, especially when they heard the snack bar was handing out plates of french fries and pigs in a blanket! (Mmm.. American food!)
As the night went on, karaoke night turned into one giant dance party. Some of the better numbers included “Baby Got Back,” “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Super Bass.” My personal favorite was the duet by my two John Carroll friends from home who are also at the Rome Center.
They (two guys) sang Sonny and Cher’s classic “I’ve got you Babe.” It was hilarious and they sang the song perfectly. I’m thinking they should start their own two man singing show. I think they’d have a lot of fans! Here’s a picture of them reading the lyrics and singing along.
