Karaoke Songs with Me Singing

PLEASE READ THESE COMMENTS FIRST!

I was taking voice lessons around 2003 and one of the things we worked on was making the sound "rounder" or fuller, especially in the "ee" vowel (it should be sung more like "ih", or else it comes out very EEEEEEE!). So the songs where you can hear a lot of EEEEE were recorded pre-2002 and I may want to redo them at some point, to incorporate the elements that I learned in my lessons.

I try to put as much emotion/passions/energy into the songs as I can (I didn't used to). If you feel I need more passion, feel free to let me know...but otherwise, this is the best I can do unless it is pointed out to me.

Chances are, if you hear bad notes, I do not hear them, so please let me know if you hear any specifically. I do not work that much on breathing, so sometimes that means that the intonation will be off. Please remember that these are home recordings done by an amateur!

I try to imitate the original singer 99% of the time because that is the only way I know how. I don't really have my own "style".

The ones recorded by Bobby were done in 2001.

NOTE-- I have a pretty good range, but I sing best in higher notes. When I say it's "too low" in the comments, it means I really have trouble hitting some of the notes at all. When I say it's kind of high, it usually means that I can hit the notes, but to really belt them out the way they were meant to be done (particularly in pop music), or sing them in tune, I have to be really warmed up and in good voice.

And when I say "this is an old recording", I usually mean it was done on an earlier, far worse karaoke machine so that it sounds muted and is not good sound quality.

Some of the clips are very old and are not from the full versions here...I need to remake them. The comments are about the full versions. Also, you may need to click more than once.

Just in case you are wondering why some of the songs have mistakes or I say they are not that great...I'm not a professional and I don't have access to professional recording equipment. I don't have the time to keep working on songs over and over until I get them right throughout the whole song. I need to work on things like my breathing, which can affect pitch and many other things.  If I re-record a song, I have to do the WHOLE song, not just one part like the pros do, so it takes a lot of time and effort to record the entire song perfectly.  I am not making excuses, just letting you know, in case you are wondering! :)

I will be putting up more clips, but it will take some time...

I used to put up new songs almost every day at Singer's Showcase (if that link doesn't still work, then search under "Suzanne Lanoue" to see my songs) and Kan't Stop Karaoke.  Also, you can see some videos of me singing at Singsnap

Some of the new songs may have some background noise.  My karaoke machine busted, etc.

PLEASE SEND ME COMMENTS!!

See an MPEG clip of me singing "Blue Bayou"! Thanks to John at Pro-sing for making this. Here's a Zipped version to download.

If you want to hear the full versions of these songs, please email me to ask me for the password;  let me know if you want a CD of the songs and I will send you a free copy.  If you like to sing and record yourself, maybe we can trade! 

Boycott the RIAA!!

eXTReMe Tracker
25 or 6 to 4   (2007) NEW! clip   full Chicago (70's) rock This gender bender came out very well. Recorded in October 2007.
9 to 5 clip   full Dolly Parton (70's) pop/country Very difficult song to sing, but I finally got a pretty good recording of it. It is higher than it seem and goes very fast with little time to breathe. I haven't yet done it in live karaoke.
(9 to 5) Morning Train clip   full Sheena Easton (70's) pop Recorded by my friend Bobby. This came out really well. I have only done this one a couple of times in live karaoke because it's very high (like most Sheena Easton songs) .
99 Luftballones clip   full Nena (80's) pop This is not bad, but I need to redo it...my voice needs to be a quieter, and the song should flow a little better.
Adelaide's Lament clip   full Guys and Dolls (50's) show tunes This is an old recording, so I have to redo it. The singing is pretty good. Cute song!
Air That I Breathe   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Olivia Newton John (70's) pop/country This came out ok...the backing has a slight problem, though.
All I Ask Of You  clip   full Phantom of the Opera (80's) show tunes This was a fun duet with Steve "Cueball".
Almost Over You   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Sheena Easton (80's) pop ballad I redid this one and it came out really well...before it was difficult, but now it is not, so I guess that's an improvement! :) The clip is still the old one until I can replace it.
And This is My Beloved clip   full Kismet (50's) show tunes I have worked on this one a lot; this is the best I could do so far. I will probably keep working on it and try to get a better recording. It is good, but I think I can do better. One of my favorite songs ever. It has a beautiful quartet part before mine that I cut out. I would probably not try this one in live karaoke.
Angel   (2006) clip   full Sara McLachlan(90's) pop ballad I still have to learn this better...I recorded it as a tribute to my nephew who was killed in Iraq in July.
Angel of Music clip   full Phantom of the Opera (80's) show tunes This is a duet for two women; I am singing both parts and trying to sound like two different parts. The first singer has a cockney -like accent. It may sound weird if you're not familiar with the show. I think it came out pretty well.
Angel of The Morning clip   full Juice Newton/ Merilee Rush (60's and 70's) pop ballad Not very good singing, have to redo it for sure. Some moments are nice, and the emotion is good, but my voice is cracking and the key is too low.
Angie Baby   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Helen Reddy (70's) pop I sang this one a lot in jr. high, when it was popular. It is a low one for me, but it helps that I raised the key. Here's a better recording than the one I had before. Still have to work on a couple of flat notes.
Another Suitcase in Another Hall   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Evita(80's) show tunes This is kind of a work in progress...I think I can do it better.  Allergies sometimes get in the way!
Anticipation clip   full Carly Simon (70's) pop ballad This was one of the first songs I learned for karaoke. I used to do it live all the time. I think this is a pretty good recording. It's in the lower- or mid-part of my voice, for the most part. The only difficult part at all is at the end with "are". I might be ready to try it again in live karaoke...people seem to like it, even though it is not that exciting of a song.
Anything Goes  (2005) clip   full Anything Goes (30's) show tunes This was done in one take and recorded on the computer. It came out great. I have a few little things I could fix if I redo it, but it's very good as is. I only tried it once so far in live karaoke and it was a slower, completely different version!
Any Dream Will Do   (2006) clip   full Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (70's) show tunes This was a one -time recording..it is okay, but the backing track is not good (it's supposed to have harmonies) , so the song kind of falls flat. My singing is fine, it's just kind of a boring song, and I barely learned it.
Any Man of Mine clip   full Shania Twain (90's) rock/country This is a fun song and does well in live karaoke. I go back and forth on whether I like the recording or not. I may re -record it better sometime.
At Seventeen   (2006) clip   full Shania Twain (90's) pop This is a fun song and does well in live karaoke. I go back and forth on whether I like the recording or not. I may re -record it better sometime.
Baby Love clip   full Diana Ross and The Supremes (60's) pop recorded by my friend Bobby. This is pretty good; a couple of note problems.
Bacharach/David Medley  (2006)  clip   full The Carpenters (70's) pop medley This is not on regular karaoke so I removed the vocals, which is so -so. It's a long song with few places to take a breath, so I run out here and there :)
Band on the Run clip   full Paul McCartney (70's) rock This was done for the JOLT Beatles project as well. It is ok. It has some flat notes that I need to fix!
Bang Bang   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Cher(60's) rock I had this song when I was a little girl and used to sing it a lot.  It's a bit low for me.
Beautiful Stranger   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Madonna (recent) rock I redid this one and it sounds much better than the previous versions.
Because the night clip   full 10,000 Maniacs (90's) rock I like this one a lot, but I think I can re -record it again and do it a little better, and make it a little less "brassy". Also, some of the words are wrong because they are wrong on the CD+G, but I would like to sing the real words. This one is hard to do in live karaoke because it's hard to keep in tune in one part.
Because You Love Me   (2006) clip   full Celine Dion(90's) pop I recorded this quickly for an online singing contest...I need to work on it a bit more. I don't think it's all that bad, but it lost me the contest, boo hoo!
Believe  (2006) clip   full Cher (recent) dance/disco This was done in one take. I'm not trying to sound too much like Cher (can't sound like her much or do all those techno effects) . I think I will probably redo it sometime and make the middle part more interesting. It's a fun song, though. I have to raise it a bit as it starts very low. I have only sung it once in live karaoke, but they seemed to like it. You really have to have good energy to sing it.
Bette Davis Eyes   (2006) clip   full Kim Carnes(80's) pop I like the way this one came out...
Big Spender  (2006) clip   full Sweet Charity (60's) show tunes This is fine except for the very first note--will have to redo it someday.
Big Yellow Taxi    (2006) clip   full Joni Mitchell (60's) pop/folk This came out great, with very little rehearsing. Easy song for my voice, I guess.
The Bitch Is Back clip   full Elton John (70's) rock I think this is pretty good, considering...one tiny rhythm problem in one place but not that noticeable.
Bless the Beasts and the Children (2007) NEW! clip   full The Carpenters (70's) pop ballad I redid this one...I think it sounds better...not a great song for me, though!
Blowin' in the Wind   (2006) clip   full Peter, Paul & Mary(60's) pop/folk Sadly, this song is just as appropriate now as it was 40 years old. I recorded it in honor of my nephew, who was killed in Iraq. I plan to redo it sometime. I'm not entirely happy with it.
Blue clip   full Leeann Rimes (90's) country recorded by my friend Bobby. I don't really do it like Leeann, but it sounds good, I think. I might redo it some day but not sure if it will change that much.
Blue Bayou   (2007) NEW! clip   full
second
Linda Ronstadt (70's) pop/country This is the song I've most sung in live karaoke. It's a good recording. I'm pretty sick of the song by now :)  There is a second version there now that I did on Singsnap, it's not bad.
Bohemian Rhapsody   (2007) NEW! clip   full Queen (70's) pop This is a great song! I have heard it so many times...think I did it justice!
Borderline   (2007) NEW! clip   full Madonna (80's) pop This was recorded on Singsnap.  I probably should redo it sometime.
Both Sides Now clip   full Judy Collins (60's) pop/folk This came out great, but it's an old recording so it needs to be redone.
Brand New Key clip   full Melanie (70's) rock/pop I sung this one when I was little and I really love it. If you are not familiar with the original, it may sound weird...it is almost a novelty song. I think the recording came out very well. I enjoy the high parts, but I definitely have to be warmed up to sing it in live karaoke, so I have not done it in public yet.
Breathe clip   full Faith Hill (recent) country/pop I love this song, and I think the recording came out great. Parts of it are low and then other parts are high, so it makes a nice contrast. I have done it a few times in live karaoke and I get mixed results. I think that's because it's hard for me to sing very loud on the low parts, so they can't always hear me, especially if it's a loud place.
Bring Me to Life   (2007)  NEW! clip  full Evanescence(recent) rock/rap I love this song! It goes over pretty well live, too.  This is a pretty good recording. Hard song!
Breathless    (2005) clip   full The Corrs (recent) pop/rock this is really fun to sing; I do it very well. I have done it in a few times in live karaoke and it always goes over well.
Buenos Aires clip   full Evita (80's) show tunes Very difficult song to sing; I may re-record it at some point.
Build Me Up Buttercup   (2007)  NEW! clip   full The Foundations (60's) pop This is an excellent recording, except for one slight flat note ("adore") that I didn't notice at first.. I always love this song; it gets me dancing!!
Burnin' Love (2007) NEW! clip   full Elvis Presley(70's) pop I just did this one very quickly, but it came out okay, considering!
Cabaret (2007) NEW! clip    full Cabaret(60's) show tunes This is not the best backing because the middle part is all wrong...the singing is fine. I will probably redo it sometime when I get the better backing.
California Dreamin'   (2006) clip   full Mamas & The Papas(60's) rock I've always love this song...might have to redo it sometime, though.
Call me clip   full Blondie (70's) rock This is such a fun song, but I need to re-record it because there are many tonality problems (I'm out of tune) . It has great energy. I always love this song. I have done it a few times in live karaoke and it goes over well.
Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man clip   full Showboat (20's) show tunes This is a really old recording, so I need to redo it. It's got really good singing, though. I did it once in live karaoke and it went over well. However, it's pretty short so I probably won't do it again.
Chico and the Man    (2006) clip   full Jose Feliciano (70's) pop TV theme I loved singing this when I was a kid (loved the show) . Mostly it is good, but I'm still working on it.
Close Every Door to Me    (2007)  NEW! clip   full Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (60's) show tunes I really love this song. It's very low for me, even with raising the key as high as I can. I will probably redo it....kind of hard to hear me on this version.
Close to You clip   full The Carpenters (70's) pop This came out pretty well. Of course, I had to raise it up quite a bit.
Come and Get It   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Badfinger(60's) pop I love this song. It was recorded on Singsnap, where I couldn't change the key, so it's way too low for me. I will probably re-record it.  Lennon and McCartney wrote this song!
Come in From the Rain   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Captain and Tennille(60's) pop I used to have their Greatest Hits cassette and sing along to all their songs. This is not my typical type of song, but it came out pretty good, probably from all those hours of singing it when I was a teen!
Come See About Me   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Diana Ross & The Supremes(60's) pop I love this group's songs. I enjoyed singing this and it came out pretty well!
Complicated clip   full Avril Levigne (recent) rock I have a couple of versions of this; not sure which I like best. Fun song but goes fast (not many places to breathe) . I have done it quite a few times in live karaoke. I hate that talking part at the beginning.
Copacabana   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Barry Manilow(70's) pop This was just done in one take, for fun.  Not too bad!
Could I Have This Dance?   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Anne Murray(70's) pop/country I love her songs...they are very low! Thank goodness for key changers :) This one is my favorite and it came out well.
Crazy For You   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Madonna(80's) pop I messed the balance on this one up, so I need to fix that. The singing is fine!
Crazy Little Thing Called Love   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Queen(80's) pop I probably will redo this one...it came out ok but I think I can sing it with a bit more energy and a little more in tune.
Crazy on You    (2006) clip   full Heart (70's) rock Very tough song, but I finally learned it. I have done it a few times in live karaoke but not since I really learned it pretty well. I have to be very warmed up, of course, because of the really part that is somewhat screamed more than sung. It's hard to strike a balance in this song because it's easy to oversing but you still want to put in a lot of passion.
Crimson and Clover   (2006)  NEW! clip   full Joan Jett(80's) rock There isn't a lot of singing on this one...but it's a fun song anyway. I grew up with the Tommy James and Shondells' version, but this one is not all that different.
Crocodile rock clip   full Elton John (70's) rock I recorded this for the gender bender project; I may redo it sometime in a higher key.
Dance With Me clip   full Orleans (70's) rock This came out pretty well, for a "gender bender".
Dancing Queen   (2006) clip   full Abba (70's) disco This is one of my new favorites that I've been doing in live karaoke. It is a good recording but I may re -record it sometime because my voice sort of disappears in the low parts. Tough song!! Really low in some parts (like "look for a king" and "mood for a dance") and then goes up very high and has to have a lot of energy. It goes over very well in live karaoke.
Danny's Song   (2007) NEW! clip   full Anne Murray (70's) pop This is a better backing than the one I had before...a couple of flat notes but otherwise good.
Dark Lady clip   full Cher (70's) pop I'm no Cher, but this came out pretty well. I always loved this song. I only did it once in live karaoke, and the KJ seemed to be the only one who liked it, so...not sure if I will do it again or not.
Desperado   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Linda Ronstadt (70's) pop This is one of my favorite LR songs.  Terrible backing for it, though.  The singing is good, considering...
Diamonds and Rust   (2006) clip   full Joan Baez (70's) pop/folk This is not a good song for me, but I love it. I put a lot of emotion into this one. It came out pretty well. Kind of a boring song, too.
Different Drum   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Linda Ronstadt (60's) pop I finally redid this one and it came out really well.  The clip, for now, is from an old recording.
Do You Know Where You're Going To (Theme From Mahogany)    (2006) clip   full Diana Ross (70's) pop This is pretty good, but I will probably re -record it because it needs a little more oomph! This was one of my favorite songs in the early 70's.
Don't Be Cruel   (2006) clip   full Elvis Presley (60's) rock This is a bit low, even after raising it up, but it's fun. This is another one done for the Singer's Showcase Elvis week.
Don't Cry for Me, Argentina    (2007)  NEW! clip   full Evita(80's) show tunes This came out amazingly well. I've done it for years and could never get a good recording, until now.
Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue clip   full Crystal Gayle (70's) pop/country ballad I need to redo this one because the vocals are too quiet; it's good otherwise.
Don't Know Much (All I Need to Know)   (2005) clip   full Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville (80's) pop duet This is a live recording done in Las Vegas at the Imperial Palace karaoke there. I think it came out pretty well (we didn't rehearse it or anything) . The guy doing the other voice is great, and he is one of the KJ's there. I would like to record this sometime with someone.
Downtown clip   full Petula Clark (60's) rock recorded by my friend Bobby. This is pretty good; I don't know if I will redo it or not. I have only done it once, I think, in live karaoke.
Dream a Little Dream Of Me clip   full The Mamas and the Papas (60's) pop ballad This song is not hard, but it's not in the best part of my voice. I think the recording came out really well.
Dreamin' clip   full Blondie (80's) rock This is such a fun song. I did it in one take. Mostly I'm happy with it.
Dreams clip   full Fleetwood Mac (70's) rock/pop This is kind of a boring song but I do it fine here. It's fun to sing but not one I like to do in live karaoke because it's slow and doesn't really show off my voice that much.
Emotion   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Samantha Sang(70's) pop The backing is from the Destiny's Child version, which is a bit slower and does not have the Bee Gees singing along.  It came out very well anyway!
Endless Love   (2007) NEW! clip   full Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie(80's) pop This is a duet from Henri on JOLT.  We will probably redo it at some point because there is a bit too much reverb.
Eternal Flame   (2006) clip   full The Bangles (80's) pop/rock This recording came out really well. I love this song. Tough song, especially if I am not warmed up, so I haven't done it but once in live karaoke.
Even The Nights Are Better   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Air Supply(80's) pop This is one of my favorite songs.
Evergreen clip   full Barbra Streisand (70's) pop ballad The singing is great on this, but the recording is old so I need to redo it.
Everything's Allright   (2006) clip   full Jesus Christ Superstar (70's) show tunes Mark Cheetah did a great job on this duet with me.
Evil ways clip   full Santana (60's) rock Too low for me and I definitely need to redo it, if I bother. I did it for a gender bender project but I didn't have the key changer then. It's ok...
Fame   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Irene Cara (80's) rock This is much improved over the previous version! Came out well.
Five O'Clock World clip   full The Vogues (60's) rock I need to redo this. I didn't learn it that well before I sang it, so parts are wrong. Also, it needs to be higher.
Flashdance   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Irene Cara (80's) rock This one came out well...I worked on it for many years before I got a recording I liked.
For No One clip   full The Beatles (60's) pop/rock ballad This is one of my favorite Beatles songs. I did it in my own way and key, rather than trying to imitate Paul McCartney. I like the way it came out.
For All We Know clip   full The Carpenters(70's) pop Probably not a very good recording.
For Your Eyes Only clip   full Sheena Easton (70's) pop recorded by my friend Bobby. Very good, but I want to redo it sometime; I changed one part near the end and don't like how I did it. I've only done this once in live karaoke a long while ago...it's very high so I have to be very warmed up for it.
From This Moment On clip   full Shania Twain and Bryan White (recent) country/pop duet Great duet with Mark Cheetah!
Funny Face clip   full Donna Fargo (70's) country This is a fun old country crossover song. It's pretty easy to sing. It came out pretty good.
The Girl from Ipanema   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Sergio Mendes & Brazil '66(60's) pop I just love this song. I didn't have a copy of the original, so I am doing the singing from memory. There may be a couple of wrong notes because of that.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun clip  full Cyndi Lauper(80's) rock I need to re-record this as it's a very old recording.
Gloria clip   full Laura Branigan (80's) rock recorded by my friend Bobby. This always wows them in live karaoke. I think I will have to do a better recording sometime. This one is not bad, though.
God Bless America   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Amy Grant (recent) pop I wanted to record a patriotic song for last 4th of July.  This is the only backing I could find. It is from Singsnap. I've never heard her version, so really this is all my own version to her backing. It came out well.
Goin' Outta My Head   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Little Anthony (60's) pop I love this song, used to sing it when I was little. It's low for me and I didn't have a key changer when I first recorded it. Here is a much better version.
Goodbye Earl clip   full Dixie Chicks (recent) country This one is always fun to sing; for some reason I have difficulty getting a good recording of it. Sometimes it's a hard balance between trying to sound like the original singer, putting emotion into it, and singing it through so it is "melodic", and this is a song where I have trouble with that. This is the best I can come up with, at least for now (and I worked really hard on it) . It's not bad, just...something is lacking and I'm not sure what. Maybe it's just as simple as, it's a little low for me in parts? The rhythm is a little different from what the Dixie Chicks sing in the part "out on Highway 109" but not that noticeable. This is a "girl song" and women in the audience always love singing along. This is a great live karaoke song.
Goodbye to Love   (2006) clip   full The Carpenters (70's) pop ballad Their songs are too low for me, but this one came out pretty well. Hard song because there is almost no place to take a breath.
Goodnight My Someone clip   full The Music Man (60's) show tunes This is pretty good...it is supposed to be a lullaby of sorts, so it starts out very quiet. I worked on it a lot a few years ago and doubt I can do much better, but I might redo it sometime.
Half Breed  (2007)  NEW! clip   full Cher(70's) pop This is one of many Cher songs I love...one day I might do this better, but this is it for now!
Hand In my Pocket clip   full Alanis Morrissette (90's) rock/alternative This one came out pretty well but a little "raw" in some places...I may redo it. I sang it a few times in live karaoke but it's kind of boring.
The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA clip   full Donna Fargo (70's) country/pop This is a really fun to sing; it has some difficult rhythms. The singing is pretty good. I think I did this one once in live karaoke.
Happy Together clip   full The Turtles (60's) pop This one is too low; I need to re -record it in a much higher key. I love this song!
Harden My Heart clip   full Quarterflash (80's) rock recorded by my friend Bobby*. Some people love the way I sing this song and others hate it. I think it is pretty good. I am definitely imitating the original singer here. I love the chorus "Darling in your wildest dreams" the best.
Have You Never Been Mellow clip   full Olivia Newton John (70's) pop I need to redo this one...it's very hard for me due to one part, mostly, but the whole thing could use a rethink. I need to sing through more and try less to sound like Olivia, and I think that will do the trick. Still, this is the best recording I have done over the years. I would never do this in live karaoke, too difficult to get that one part. I mean, I could do it lightly in head voice and not really belt it like she does, but that kind of ruins the song.
Heads Carolina Tails California  (2006) clip   full (recent) Jo Dee Messina country I may record it again some time; not entirely happy with it. But it's not bad, just could be better in the verse parts. I'm just a little unsure on this recording. Fun country tune and I do it a lot in live karaoke.
Heart of Glass   (2006) clip   full Blondie (70's) pop/rock After years of trying to get it right, this one came out great.
Heartbreak Hotel clip   full Elvis Presley (60's) rock I did this for Singer's Showcase when "Elvis" was the theme. I don't know the song that well, but it came out pretty good considering. I had to raise the key quite a lot. I should probably re -record it after hearing Elvis' version some more, especially on the rhythm. Great emotion!!! One day maybe I will do it in live karaoke.
Heartbreaker clip   full Pat Benatar (80's) rock This one came out really well. I always loved this song. I have only done it in live karaoke a couple of times but it will be a staple if I get my band going; great rocker.
Heatwave clip   full Linda Ronstadt (70's) rock Fun song and it goes over well in live karaoke. I wasn't sure if I liked this recording or not, at first, but now I like it.
Heaven Knows   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Donna Summer(70's) disco I think I need to work on this one some more...it's pretty good as is, though!
Here You Come Again (2005) clip   full Dolly Parton (70's) pop I love this song; I think I do it well. The recording is pretty good. I've done it once in live karaoke, but I don't think I did it that well (wasn't warmed up enough) . It takes a lot of control and I have a tendency to over -sing it, which does not sound good.
Hit Me With Your Best Shot #1 clip   full Pat Benatar (80's) rock This recording is a bad one we did in Hawaii one day in a recording karaoke place there - it has way too much echo and I was hungover from the previous night (and my voice was kind of shot from singing a lot) . I am a bit flat in places. It's ok, but I can do better!
Hit Me With Your Best Shot clip   full Pat Benatar (80's) rock This one is pretty good; I sing it a lot in live karaoke.
Honey I'm Home clip   full Shania Twain (recent) country On the one hand, I really love this song and this recording!! On the other hand, I do part of the chorus ("treat" and "by the way") with a slightly different tune than the original (because I learned it wrong) , so anyone who knows it well may think I'm just being off -key :) Anyway, it is a fun song and I always get a good reception when I sing it in karaoke. It's kind of a "chick" song.
Hopelessly Devoted to You clip   full Olivia Newton John/Grease (70's) show tunes/pop recorded by my friend Bobby. I have done this one an awful lot in karaoke. It usually goes over pretty well. This is a pretty good recording but I may redo it at some point (more energy) .
Hot Patootie clip   full rocky Horror Show (70's) show tunes This was recorded for the gender bender project; it is okay, nothing special.
Hound Dog  (2005) clip   full Elvis Presley (60's) rock The music kind of drowns me out on this one so I should probably redo it. Fun song I did for Singer's Showcase during Elvis week. Fun song! Maybe one day I will do it in live karaoke but it needs to be raised quite a bit.
How Am I Supposed to Live Without You clip   full Laura Branigan (80's) Pop ballad I still need to redo this one; it's not too bad, but I was having trouble with the OO vowel on "you" for some reason, so it sounds weird. It's got pretty good singing and emotion otherwise.
How Do I Live Without You  (2006) clip   full Leeann Rimes (90's) country ballad This is a deceptively difficult song to sing because it has a wide range and she really belts out the higher part. I have hardly ever heard it sung well in live karaoke. I stopped doing it live because it's iffy as to whether I can do it well or my voice cracks. I got a good recording finally, though, on one certain day when I was just "in the zone".
How Do I Make You    (2007)  NEW! clip   full Linda Ronstadt (70's) rock Love this song! Great rockin' fun to sing.  I redid it on Singsnap and here it is, much more in tune.  The clip is from the older version.
Hurt So Bad clip   full Linda Ronstadt (70's) rock/pop recorded by my friend Bobby. I think I can do it better, so I will probably redo it. I've done it a few times in live karaoke.
Hush Little Baby   (2005) clip   full traditional folk This is largely a capella. I did this for a project where they wanted me to sing some children's songs for a charity CD. It's kind of a boring song, though.
I'd Be Surprisingly Good For You   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Evita (80's) show tunes I redid this one, so it is better than the one that was here before.  It's actually a duet of sorts. I haven't done this in live karaoke before; maybe I should.
I'll Be There  (2007)  NEW! clip   full Jackson 5 (70's) pop This is way better and more in tune than the previous version I had here.
I'll Never Fall in Love Again clip  full Dionne Warwick(60's) pop This is an old recording. I don't have a clip yet.
I'm So Excited clip   full Pointer Sisters (80's) rock I love love love this song!! I have only sung it a few times in live karaoke because many of the karaoke versions don't have the background singers, and it sounds too weird without them. You have to have a lot of energy for this one. I sing it pretty well.
I Am Woman clip   full Helen Reddy (70's) pop There are a couple of note problems but not too bad. Someday I will have to re -record it.
I Cain't Say No   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Oklahoma(50's) show tunes I used to love listening to this soundtrack...it's hard to do for me to do this one completely in tune. This is pretty good, though.
I Can See Clearly Now clip   full Johnny Nash (70's) pop I always loved this song! Pretty good recording.
I Could Have Danced All Night   (2006) clip   full My Fair Lady (50's) show tunes This is a good recording; I am not happy about the last note, where I wobbled, but the rest of it is great.
I Don't Know How to Love Him   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Helen Reddy (70's) show tunes/pop I redid this one, finally, and it came out great.
I Fall to Pieces   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Patsy Cline(50's) country I know the Linda Ronstadt version better, so this is half and half. I never liked how I sounded on this one, but I finally got a good recording.
I Feel Pretty   (2006) clip   full West Side Story (50's) show tunes This is a great recording, best I can do on this (and I've been working on it for 30 years) . I come in slightly late in the middle part but not a big deal. I would not do this in live karaoke unless it was a crowd that really loved show tunes.
I Honestly Love You clip   full Olivia Newton John (70's) pop ballad recorded by my friend Bobby. I love this recording -Bobby did an awesome job. I think this is probably one of my best recordings and singing jobs ever. This is the first song I ever tried in karaoke. I have sung it a few times in live karaoke and usually it goes over well, despite being a slow song.
I Hope You Dance clip   full Leeann Womack (recent) country This is a beautiful song...I go back and forth on whether I like the recording or not...I may redo it or not.
I Just Want To Be Your Everything   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Andy Gibb (70's) pop/disco This is much better than the one I had here before...you won't believe the trouble I had to go through to get this recorded!  LOL!!
I Love rock and Roll (2007)  NEW! clip   full Joan Jett(80's) rock I really like the way this one came out. There are a few off notes, so maybe one day I'll redo it.
I Love the Nightlife clip   full Alicia Bridges (70's) disco This one came out well. I have only done it twice in live karaoke; not sure why.
I Only Want To Be With You  (2007)  NEW! clip   full Dusty Springfield(60's) pop This is a fab song and I love the way it came out.
I Say a Little Prayer (2007)  NEW! clip   full Dionne Warwick(60's) pop This was recorded on Singsnap, where they have a very weird version of this song. I will redo it later with the real version.
I Will Survive  (2007)  NEW! clip   full Gloria Gaynor (70's) disco I have done this one a lot in live karaoke and it is a chick song, very popular. But I had a hard time getting a good version of it in recording...not sure why. Here is one I finally got! The clip is still the old version.
I Woke Up in Love This Morning  (2007)  NEW! clip   full The Partridge Family (70's) pop I love this song...good recording.
I Won't Last a Day Without You clip   full The Carpenters (70's) pop ballad This is too low for me, like most Carpenters' songs. I tried raising the key more, but it just didn't work. So my voice sort of disappears a few times in this one, on the really low notes. Sometimes, too, the music overpowers me. Otherwise it's really good.
If I Can't Have You   (2007)  NEW! clip   full Yvonne Elliman (70's) pop/disco I redid this one and it came out great!
If I Could Read Your Mind  (2006) clip   full Gordon Lightfoot(70's) pop This may be my best song...it came out really well.
If I Had a Hammer  (2006) clip   full Peter, Paul & Mary(60's) folk This is a fun song and I enjoyed singing it...I think it shows here.
If I Were a Bell clip   full Guys and Dolls (50's) show tunes Good singing; weird song if you don't know it. This is a missionary lady who gets drunk by accident and is flirting, so keep that in mind when you listen to it :) We did this show in high school.
If They Could See Me Now  (2006) clip   full Sweet Charity (60's) show tunes I didn't work much on this...it came out ok. I will probably redo it someday.
If You Leave Me Now   (2007)  NEW! clip  full Chicago(70's) pop This was a pretty easy one to do...came out very well, too.
If You Love Me Let Me Know clip   full Olivia Newton John (70's) pop one recorded by my friend Bobby. I like this song a lot. I think I sing it pretty well here, especially in the chorus.
Imagine   (2007)  NEW! clip  full John Lennon(70's) pop This is a bit low for me, but it came out okay anyway.
In My Life  (2006) clip   full The Beatles(60's) pop I did this for a contest, too. I think it came out pretty well.
In The Ghetto  (2005) clip   full Elvis Presley (70's) pop Another one I did for Singer's Showcase's Elvis week. The music is too loud and drowns me out in places, otherwise it's pretty good.
Invincible   (2007)  NEW! clip  full Pat Benatar(80's) rock Love her, and this song, and it came out great! Not the best backing as it left off the end part, but oh, well.
Ironic clip   full Alanis Morrissette (90's) alternative/pop This is a very good recording; I always do this one well. There is one small part here where my voice cracks on the lower note, and another slight rhythm problem, so I may re -record it. It goes great in live karaoke. I have done it a lot so I'm a little bored by it now :)
It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas clip   full traditional (Christmas) This is one of my favorite Christmas songs, believe it or not. I did it in chorus years ago. This is very fun and the recording came out well.
It's Going to Take Some Time   (2007)  NEW! clip  full The Carpenters(70's) pop I don't think I do this one all that well, but here it is for now.
It's My Party   (2005) clip   full Lesley Gore (60's) pop My voice cracks once on this, but the rest of it is pretty good. I will have to re -record it. This was recorded on the pc in one take. I have done this one a couple of times in live karaoke.
It's Raining Men  (2007)  NEW! clip   full The Weather Girls (80's) disco I have done this a lot in live karaoke, and it usually goes over well. This is the first time I was able to get a good recording of it, though.
It's So Easy  (2007)  NEW! clip   full Linda Ronstadt (70's) rock Another great Buddy Holly-remake from Linda Ronstadt. This recording came out very well.
It's Too Late clip   full Carol King(70's) pop I love this song, but I'm not entirely happy with this recording and will probably redo it.
The Jeffersons Theme   (2006) clip   full (70's) TV Theme I need to redo this one; it's ok, but I have heard the original more recently and realized I could do it a little better. Also, it is a MIDI version with no background vocals. I have since gotten a better karaoke cd with the song.
Johnny Angel clip   full Shelly Fabares/The Carpenters (50's) pop This song is pretty low for me, even with the key raised. The recording is pretty good. I would probably only do this one if it was an older crowd at live karaoke.
Joy to the World (2007)  NEW! clip   full Three Dog Night (60's) rock I loved this song when I was a little girl! The lyrics don't really work for a woman, but it's okay...the singing is good!
Joy to the World clip   full (Christmas) This came out pretty well. The MIDI backing is a little weird, and it has a very long part near the end. Sometimes the backing is louder than me. This moves a little faster than I'm used to :)
Just the Two of Us (2007)  NEW! clip   full Bill Withers(70's) pop This was done very quickly, without a lot of practice. It came out well anyway.
Killing Me Softly clip   full Robert Flack (70's) pop/r&b ballad starts out a little off rhythmically but gets better. I think I do it pretty well in this recording. I have always loved this song!
Kiss Me clip   full Sixpence None the Richer (recent) pop This is a fun song and I always enjoy it. I like this recording. I have sung it a few times in live karaoke.
Kiss Me Deadly clip   full Lita Ford (80's) rock I really love how this one came out -great energy, love the tone in my voice, and it really rocks. I do the ending slightly different than the original singer. It is a great hit in live karaoke, too.
Kryptonite (2007)  NEW! clip   full 3 Doors Down(recent) rock This is not bad, but I need to learn it a little better and redo it.
L.A. Song clip   full Beth Hart (90's) pop ballad I really like the way this recording turned out, aside from a slight rhythm delay where I sing "took a train". It is not a really high song, but I think it sounds good and has a lot of passion. I did not do a ton of recordings of this one so it wasn't too hard to do. This is a little boring for "live" karaoke but I have done it a few times. It has a curse word in it so avoid it if that offends you :)
La Isla Bonita (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Madonna (90's) pop I love this song. I think this is a better version than I had here before. This one was recorded on Singsnap.
Lady Marmalade   (2006) clip   full Patti LaBelle (70's) rock This is one of my favorite 70's songs. I think this recording came out great. There is a slight rhythm problem here and there but I don't think it's that noticeable unless you know the song really well. I have done it a few times in live karaoke, and the crowd usually likes it, as long as I put good energy into it. I don't have the same deep, powerful voice that Labelle has, of course!
Last Dance (long version) clip   full Donna Summer (70's) disco I am not totally happy with this one...probably need to listen to the original some more. I'm probably just being picky. Needs more energy in the slow parts and a little more singing through in the fast parts. I would never do the long version in live karaoke. I have done the short version once and it went great.
Last Dance (short version) clip   full Donna Summer (70's) disco I like this one a little better than the long version, not sure why.
Last Night I Didn't Get to Sleep At All clip   full 5th Dimension (70's) pop This one has to be redone...just did it once here on the computer.
Laughter in the Rain (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Neil Sedaka(70's) pop This was one of my favorites when I was a pre-teen, and I had the 45 record.  Love singing this, even though I had to raise the key a lot.
Le Violette clip   full Scarlatti classical This was recorded in the mid -80's before I really learned how to support my singing at all, so it's completely in my head voice. I recorded it onto the computer to show someone how I used to sound back then. I will have to re -record it sometime...I think I have the piano part somewhere still. If you listen, you can tell my voice is somewhat hoarse from singing without proper support.
Let Me Be There clip  full Olivia Newton John (70's) pop/country one recorded by my friend Bobby. This is a karaoke staple and always well -received. I could probably put more energy into it, but it's sung well.
Lead Me On clip   full Maxine Nightingale (70's) pop I really love this song. It could probably flow a little better. I worked hard on this, and I think it came out pretty well.
Leavin' on a Jet Plane   (2006) clip   full Peter, Paul and Mary(60's) pop I don't think I can ever do this better than on this recording. It came out SO well.
Let's Hear it For the Boy   (2006) clip   full Denice Williams (80's) pop I have sung this a lot in live karaoke; people seem to like it. I like the way this recording came out.
Like a Virgin  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Madonna (80's) pop Here's a new recording of it; not sure if it's better than the previous one or not! I recorded it on Singsnap.  The clip is still the old one.
The Lion Sleeps Tonight clip   full The Tokens (60's) pop I need to redo this; it was done before I had a key changer. This is one of my favorite songs. The singing is not too bad, just would sound better in a higher key.
Listen People clip   full Herman's Hermits (60's) pop ballad I was just trying this out; it is not that great. I need to work on it, change the key etc. This was one of my favorites when I was a kid.
Little Drummer Boy clip   full Christmas I did this one for a JOLT Christmas project. It's ok, but I think I can do it better sometime. It is sung "straight". Not a great backing track; I had to use a MIDI.
A Little More Love clip   full Olivia Newton John (70's) pop I really need to re -record this; the chorus is very difficult, so I need to work on it more. I've done it a couple of times in live karaoke...it went over well.
Livin' La Vida Loca  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Ricky Martin(recent) pop I never get tired of this song! It has difficult rhythms, so I had to learn that. It came out well.
Lonely Nights (Angel Face)  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full The Captain and Tennille (70's) pop I redid this, so hopefully it sounds a lot better!
Long Long Time  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Linda Ronstadt (70's) pop/country I re-recorded this one; it's much better than the one I had here before. The clip is still the older version.
Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee clip   full Grease (70's) show tunes This is a fun and silly song. I do it well here; one tiny little rhythm thing that bugs me, but most people wouldn't notice it.
The Look of Love  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Sergio Mendes(60's) pop This is sort of an experiment, but it sounds pretty good.
Looking Through The Eyes of Love   (2006) clip   full Melissa Manchester (70's) pop I recorded this on the computer while trying out an online recording karaoke thing. I definitely need to redo it. This is right in the middle, in a hard place for me to sing. Hard to balance emotion with singing here. I am probably too hard on myself here. It is not bad. Boring song, to a certain extent --I probably won't ever do it in live karaoke.
Love Child  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Diana Ross & The Supremes(60's) pop This came out great! One of my favorites.
Love Fool clip   full The Cardigans (80's) pop I need to redo this so it flows better; also, I need to listen to the original more. Pretty song, though, and it came out ok here. Voice cracks a little in one part on the word "pretend".
Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes clip   full Edison Lighthouse (60's) pop This song is really fun to sing. I think I should redo it, though; raise it up a little more and maybe find a better backing track.
Love Hurts  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Nazareth(70's) pop/rock Love this song...recording is good.
Lovin' You clip   full Minnie Ripperton (70's) pop The high notes are great in this...however, during the rest of the song, the background sort of overpowers me. This was somewhat deliberate. I did not like the sound of my voice when I was closer to the mic, so I backed off...but maybe I should work on it more until I get a sound I like. I would probably never do this in live karaoke unless I was very warmed up and had a great audience because of the high notes and it's sort of boring except for those parts. Overall, I like this, but...probably still need to re -record it.
Love Is a Rose  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Linda Ronstadt(70's) bluegrass This is such a fun song to sing...took me a few tries to get a good recording!
Love Will Keep Us Together  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Captain and Tennille(70's) pop I loved this when it came out...this is a pretty good recording, I think.
Lullaby   (2006) clip   full Brahms classical I recorded this for someone who asked me to record some children's songs for a charity project. I knew it better in German but here is the English version, which I think is pretty good. It's mostly unaccompanied. There is a slight computer midi in the background.
Magic clip   full Olivia Newton John (70's) pop/country This one is okay...it is hard to get a good recording. I might want to redo it sometime. I used to sing it a lot when I was first did karaoke, but I haven't done it in a long time.
Magic Man   (2006) clip   full Heart (80's) rock Fun but hard song to learn. I like this recording but I think it still sounds a little tentative and could be more passionate. Have to redo it. I can hear a few off notes, too. I rarely do it in live karaoke but have tried a few times. I really have to be warmed up good.
Making Our Dreams Come True (Laverne and Shirley Theme)   (2006) clip   full Cindi Greco (70's) TV theme I love this song...still need to get a better recording, though.  Just a little rhythm problem at the beginning.
Man! I Feel Like a Woman clip   full Shania Twain (90's) country/rock I worked hard on this one...it came out pretty good. This is hard to sing because it goes very low (I had to raise it here) and goes up much higher than you think. It has to have great energy, too. It's a fun "chick" song and always gets a good reception.
Mandy  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Barry Manilow(70's) pop This song is low for me, but this turned out pretty good. The music is a tad too loud.
Manic Monday clip   full The Bangles (80's) pop recorded by my friend Bobby. Fun song. I think I sing it a little better now. I have done it live a few times and it is popular.
Many a New Day  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Oklahoma (50's) show tunes I redid this one...I think it's better? Tough song!
Mary Did You Know?  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full various(80's) Christmas Even though I'm not a Christian, I love this beautiful song.  I would like to get the backing for Natalie Cole (this one is not as good). It came out well, though.
Material Girl   (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Madonna (80's) pop A fun song!! I do it very well. I re-did this one.
Me & Bobby McGee   (2006) clip   full Janis Joplin (60's) pop This came out pretty well, but I would like to redo it for a couple of things.
Memory clip   full Cats(70's) show tunes This is an old one; have to re-record it.
Men Don't Change   (2006) clip   full Amy Dalley (recent) country I think this one came out great (really worked on it) . I always love this song! A "chick" song. I have done this many times now in live karaoke. It's not a really popular song so it gets a so -so reception, so I probably won't do it again.
Merry Christmas Darling   (2006) clip   full The Carpenters (70's) Christmas/pop Definitely have to redo this...Still, it's pretty. Might try it at Christmas time in live karaoke.
Midnight at the Oasis  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Maria Muldaur (70's) pop ballad I finally got the right backing for this one. It came out pretty good.  I have been singing this one since I was a pre-teen.
Midnight Train to Georgia   (2006) clip   full Gladys Knight and the Pips (70's) pop/r&b ballad This was done in one -take on my computer...it is fine, but I can probably do better. I have done the song a few times in live karaoke and it goes over ok.
Miracles Happen clip   full Mya (recent) pop I love this song and this recording. I will probably redo it at some point, now that I am a little more comfortable with it (this one is slightly tentative) . I did work very hard on it. I didn't have the karaoke version so I removed vocals from the original, with mixed results. I did buy the karaoke version, but it leaves out a huge chunk of the song, so I don't like it.
More, More, More (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Andrew True Connection(70's) disco Even though I didn't like disco much at the time, I always loved songs like this.  The recording was very easy to do.
More Today Than Yesterday (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Spiral Staircase (60's) pop This is one of my favorite songs. This is the best I can do for now...it's better than the one I had here before.
The Morning After clip   full Maureen McGovern (70's) pop ballad This is a pretty good recording, singing -wise; not my best song. The background music is not very loud. There are a few slightly flat notes, but otherwise it's fine. Difficult song to sing. I probably wouldn't sing this in live karaoke as it's not very interesting.
Mother Nature's Son clip   full The Beatles (70's) pop I should redo this one --it has quite a few problems. It's not awful, but I can do better. Also, the backing track is too loud.
The Music and the Mirror clip   full A Chorus Line (70's) show tunes I have to redo this one sometime, but it's mostly pretty good. I really love this song. a couple of notes are out of tune; the rest is fine :)
Muskrat Love (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Captain & Tennille(70's) pop Everyone made fun of this silly song back in the 70's.  It's got a pretty tune and a sexy vibe, though. Here I am singing it like Toni Tennille. I might redo it sometime to sound more like me.
My Guy clip   full Mary Wells (60's) pop This is always a fun one; I've only sung it once in live karaoke. I sing it pretty well, but it's not very challenging.
My Heart Belongs to me clip   full Barbra Streisand (70's) pop ballad This came out well...very beautiful song. There might be some minor things in this, but I may not redo it. I have never done it in live karaoke.
My Love  (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Petula Clark (60's) rock/pop I love this song and it has great energy. I redid this one - I think it came out better. Hard song to sing because it moves so fast, without many places to breathe.
Neither One of Us (Seems To Be The First To Say Goodbye) clip   full Gladys Knight and the Pips (70's) pop/R&B ballad recorded by my friend Bobby. This is a great song and I have done it many times in live karaoke. Parts are a little low but it doesn't detract from the rest of the song.
Nel Cor Piu Non Mi Sento clip   full Paganini (old) classical This is a song I worked on in voice lessons a few years ago. It's not the world's most exciting song, but I do it well.
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down clip   full Joan Baez (70's) ballad I don't do her stuff too well; this is okay. I haven't had the nerve to do it in live karaoke, but I love the song.
No More Tears/Enough Is Enough clip   full Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer (70's) disco duet I need to redo this one; it's not a great quality recording. One voice is louder than the other.
No way to Treat a Lady clip   full Helen Reddy (70's) pop ballad This one is in a weird place in my voice, but I just love it and always have. This is the best recording of it I have done so far. I probably need to raise it up a bit more to make it work.
Nobody  (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Sylvia(80's) pop/country This song used to play when I was working at a particular store in Long Island, so it always reminds me of that!  The recording came out pretty well.
Nothing (2007)  NEW!   clip   full A Chorus Line (70's) show tunes I recorded this on Singsnap; it was one of the few I liked on there (recording-wise).  I just added some effects.  One of my favorite songs from this musical, even if it is a bit low.
O Mio Babbino Caro clip   full Gianni Schicchi opera I hate the first note of this, but the rest is good. I may redo it sometime.
Oh What a Beautiful Morning  (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Oklahoma(50's) show tunes This was just recorded on a lark, but it came out pretty well.
Old Souls clip   full Phantom of the Paradise (70's) show tunes This is a capella; it's not available on karaoke disk yet. One of my favorite songs. There are a couple of flat notes near the beginning, but it gets better after that. It has a beautiful piano part that I hope one day to hear with my voice :) Phantom of the Paradise is a horror musical movie from the 70's starring Paul Williams; he also did all of the music.
On My Own clip   full Les Miserables (80's) show tunes Here is a better and more recent recording.  The clip is still the old one.
One Fine Day   (2007)  NEW!   clip   full The Carpenters and many others (60's) pop This one is really easy to sing; I did it in one take. This is better than the version I had on here before.
One Less Bell to Answer clip   full 5th Dimension (70's) pop/r&b ballad one recorded by my friend Bobby. Bobby did a great job with this one, but I think I can sing it better now. It's still a very good recording.
One Night Only clip   full Dreamgirls (80's) show tunes This is one of my favorite songs, from a great show. It is two women singing, so I hope I conveyed the two voices adequately. It's mostly very good, but picky me, I'm not entirely happy with it, so I consider it a "work in progress".
One Tin Soldier (2007)  NEW! clip   full old Coven (70's) pop/rock Always loved this song, when I was a little girl....click on "old" to hear the version from back then :)
One Way or Another (2007)  NEW! clip   full Blondie(70's) rock I love Blondie songs! This is a good rocker. A couple of off notes here that don't matter.
Only Yesterday clip   full The Carpenters (70's) pop This is one of my favorite songs. I wish I could sing the low part at the beginning in the right key. It's a tough one for me because of that. The recording is ok but maybe one day I can do it better. Also, the background music is a little too places in places.
Out of My Dreams (2007)  NEW! clip   full Oklahoma(50's) show tunes I keep trying to redo this one...sometimes I like this recording, and other times I don't. Maybe one day I will get that "perfect" recording! Ha! The clip is still the old one.
Ooh Baby Baby clip   full Linda Ronstadt (70's) pop/r&b ballad recorded by my friend Bobby. Pretty good; may redo it someday. This one always gets a good reception.
Over At the Frankenstein Place clip   full The rocky Horror Picture Show (70's) show tunes I need to re -record it for many reasons. I can definitely do better.
People Will Say We're in Love  (2007)  NEW! clip   full Oklahoma(50's) show tunes This is a duet, but I did the whole thing myself.   One of these days I'll do the duet version with someone...It is an ok recording--hard song to do because it moves fast.
Physical clip   full Olivia Newton John (70's) pop recorded by my friend Bobby. This came out pretty well. I still haven't done this one in live karaoke; don't really know why.
Please Mr. Please clip   full Olivia Newton John (70's) pop/country ballad one recorded by my friend Bobby. I love this song, it's one of my favorites. I think this is a good recording. Most karaoke places don't seem to have it, so I have not done it more than once or twice in live karaoke.
Popsicles Icicles   (2005) clip   full The Murmaids (60's) pop This was sung with my friend Connie from JOLT. It was fun to do!
Que Sera Sera  (2007)  NEW! clip   full Doris Day (50's) pop I redid it to sound more like Doris Day...I think it sounds prettier than the one here before.
Rainy Days and Mondays clip   full The Carpenters (70's) pop This one is pretty low for me, so I had to raise it. I go back and forth on whether I like the singing on this one or not. You can hear some other singing in the background that's not supposed to be there, so some day I might re -record it. This is one of my favorite Carpenters songs.
Reach  (2007)  NEW! clip   full S Club 7 (recent) pop I love this song! It was very popular in 2000, especially in Europe when we were visiting Ireland and England. I think I need to redo parts of this that I didn't know as well, but otherwise it is a good one.
Ride Captain Ride  (2007)  NEW! clip   full Blues Image (70's) pop There's a couple of rhythmic gaffes, but this is the best I can d for now.
Right Back Where We Started From (2007)  NEW! clip   full Maxine Nightingale (70's) pop I love this song, and I love the way this recording came out!
Ring My Bell (2007)  NEW! clip   full Anita Ward (70's) disco This one came out pretty well...I'll probably redo it sometime to sound more soulful.
Rockin' Robin (2007)  NEW! clip   full Michael Jackson (70's) Pop I recorded this one on Singsnap...have to try it again sometime with a better blend. Tough song!
Rockin' Robin   (2006) clip   full Bobby O'Day (60's) pop  It's a good recording but not my best.
Rodeo Song clip   full Showdown (80's) country/novelty song This is a funny novelty song. Avoid it if you don't like cussing. Otherwise it's pretty good. Some people who don't know me very well may be surprised to hear me sing these words :) - It is originally sung by a guy, of course. I did this for a gender -bender project on JOLT.
The Rose (2007)  NEW! clip   full Bette Midler (70's) pop ballad The singing is pretty good on this one. The background singers a little off, but otherwise it's good.
Say You Love Me clip   full Fleetwood Mac (70's) pop/rock This came out pretty good, especially since most of it is in the lower range of my voice.
Sealed with a Kiss (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Brian Hyland(60's) pop I loved this song when I was a kid, too. It's a bit low for me! Came out ok, though.
Self Control clip   full Laura Branigan (80's) rock  I love singing this one. Have only done it once in live karaoke. I think it might be boring for the audience. It has to be done with a lot of passion. The recording is pretty good. Parts of the song are very low for me, so raising it up might help if I were to rerecord it.
Shadows of The Night clip   full Pat Benatar (80's) rock Very difficult song to sing. You really have to yell the notes out on the chorus, and they are somewhat high (for yelling) . I'm not entirely happy with this one, but it's okay and it's the best I can do for now. I have only tried it live once and that version was far too slow. Like most Pat Benatar songs, the verses are low and the chorus is higher.
Shall We Dance   (2006) clip   full The King and I (50's) show tunes This came out awesome, I think. It's really a duet, but it works fine.
Shannon (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Henry Gross(70's) pop Such a sad song...I had to raise the key to get those low notes. Came out well; slight rhythmic problem on one note.
Silhouettes (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Herman's Hermits(60's) pop We had their greatest hits and some other albums when I was a little girl, so know and love all their songs.  This was a fun but challenging song to do.
Sing clip   full The Carpenters(70's) pop old recording, need to redo it
Silver Threads and Golden Needles clip   full Linda Ronstadt (70's) country one recorded by my friend Bobby. I can do this one better, so I will probably redo it. There is a flat note near the beginning. It is ok, just not as good as it could be. Don't think I have ever done it in live karaoke.
Sk8ter Boi clip   full Avril Levigne (recent) rock This is a fun rock song to sing, and I do it really well in live karaoke. The backing is really loud, so it made it hard to record with it. I like the way it came out. It's not a hard song to sing except for putting in some vocal things to sound like Avril, and it's very fast, and the rhythm in the middle part is a little weird. This is a very popular song, so it usually gets a good reception in live karaoke.
Snowbird (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Anne Murray (70's) country/pop I think this one is way better than the one I had here before.
So Far Away  (2006) clip   full Carol King(70's) pop I think this came out very well.  It's kind of a slow boring song :)
So In Love clip   full Kiss Me Kate (50's) show tunes This one is okay.  I have done it once in karaoke and it was very well -received. It is such a beautiful song, like most Cole Porter songs.
Solitaire (2007)  NEW!   clip   full The Carpenters(70's) pop This is one of my favorite songs. Too low for me. Thank goodness again for the pitch changer! The backing cut out briefly, but otherwise it's fine.
Someday Soon clip   full Judy Collins (70's) country/pop This is an old recording; I need to redo it. It's hard to get it where I like it, so far. Pretty song. I have done it a few times in live karaoke but most people don't know it.
Somewhere Out There clip   full Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram (80's) pop duet This is a fun song I sang with Henri B. Very pretty!
Son of a Preacher Man (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Dusty Springfield(60's) pop I just learned this one and this recording was a good one. The backing is not that great, so maybe one day I'll redo it.
The Star Spangled Banner clip   full traditional(old) national anthem I did this for a contest....it came out pretty well.
Still The One (2005)  NEW!   clip   full Shania twain (recent) country ballad I love this song; it took me a while to figure out how to sing it. This recording came out really well. I mixed it a little better.
Stone in Love With You (2007)  NEW!  clip   full The Stylistics(70's) pop I always loved this song. This is a pretty good recording for this "gender bender".
Stop Draggin' My Heart Around  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Stevie Nicks(70's) pop This is a duet, but I just did it myself.
Stop in the Name of Love   (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Diana Ross & The Supremes (60's) pop Great song! This is a good recording.
Strange Twist of Fate (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Olivia Newton John (80's) pop/rock This came out ok, but the background is a bit loud...have to redo it sometime.
Strawberry Fields clip   full The Beatles (60's) rock Not a great backing track, and it sounds weird raised up a few steps. It's ok singing but I can probably do better. I did this for the JOLT Beatles project.
Sue Me   (2005) clip   full Guys and Dolls (50's) show tunes This is a duet with JOLT friend Dave. The singing is good; recording could be better, but this is the best we can do right now.
Summertime   (2005) clip   full Porgy and Bess (30's) show tunes/opera I love the way this one came out. In some parts, I am a little quieter than the background music.
Super Trouper (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Abba(70's) pop It was very hard to get this right, but I finally did it!
Superstar clip   full The Carpenters (70's) pop ballad I love the Carpenters and know all of their songs really well. This one is too low for me. I might have to redo it. The first note is not great. The rest is ok.
Suspicious Minds (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Elvis Presley(70's) pop I'll probably redo this one as it didn't come out quite the way I wanted.
Sweet Caroline (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Neil Diamond(70's) pop Fun song...not really in my range but fun to do!
Take a Bow clip   full Madonna (90's) pop ballad recorded by my friend Bobby. He really made me sound great here. Hard song for me because it's so low. Still, I might redo it sometime now that I have a key changer. This song is a bit boring for live karaoke.
Take a Chance   (2005) clip   full ABBA (70's) disco This recording came out pretty good. I've never done this one in live karaoke. It moves very fast.
Talkin' in Your Sleep clip   full Crystal Gayle (70's) pop/country This is a great song, but a bit low for me. The music is a little louder than my voice, so I will probably have to re -record it. It sounds fine otherwise.
Telefone (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Sheena Easton(80's) pop This was hard to do, but I worked out and it came out well finally!
Telephone Man clip   full Merilee Wilson (70's) novelty song This is ok, but I think I sang some of it wrong, so I should learn it better, redo it more accurately.
Tell Me Why (2007)  NEW!  clip   full The Beatles(80's) rock I recorded this on Singsnap. It's ok, but too low for me. I'll probably redo it sometime with the key changer.
Texas When I Die   (2006) clip   full Tanya Tucker (70's) country I am still learning this one...it's kind of a boring song and goes on forever at the end. It's too boring for live karaoke unless I am really desperate for an old country song to do.
That Don't Impress Me Much (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Shania Twain(recent) rock/country This is a fun song. I think this came out really well.
That'll Be the Day (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Linda Ronstadt(70's) rock This is a fun, Rockin' tune! I didn't have too much trouble with it.
Then Came You clip   full Dionne Warwick and The Spinners (70's) pop/r&b I mostly like this but not entirely happy with parts of it, so I will probably redo it sometime.
There are Worse Things I Could Do clip   full Grease (70's) show tunes I do a pretty good job on this, but there are two parts where I am flat, so I need to redo it. I love this song! I have yet to do it in live karaoke.
They Don't Know  (2007)  NEW!  clip   full Tracey Ullman (80's) pop I love this song, but it is always difficult to sing because it goes fast and there are few places to take a breath! I updated the version, think this one is better.
Think of Me   (2006) clip   full Phantom of the Opera (80's) show tunes This was a recent re-do...the clip is from the original version, which was very good singing but poor quality recording. The new recording is ok, still need to work on it to make it closer to perfect :)
This Kiss clip   full Faith Hill (90's) country/pop ballad There is one little place where I stumble over the words and sort -of laugh, so I may redo it sometime. Tough song, but this recording came out well. It's tough because it moves very fast with lots of words, and then the chorus comes pretty high and needs lots of energy without sounding strained.
The Tide Is high clip   full Blondie (80's) pop Old, bad recording, need to redo.
Time After Time clip   full Cyndi Lauper(80's) show tunes This is with JOLT friend Steve "Cueball". It came out pretty good, I think!
The Time Warp   (2005) clip   full The rocky Horror Picture Show (70's)show tunes This is with JOLT friend Steve "Cueball". It came out pretty good, I think!
To Sir With Love clip   full Lulu (60's) pop ballad This one is hard for me to sing...I keep working at it and so far this is the best I've done. Not bad.
Tomorrow (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Annie(70's) show tunes This one is okay...I think I can do better, though.
Tonight clip   full West Side Story (50's) show tunes This was sung with my friend Alan. The singing is pretty good; the recording is not great. I don't know if we can ever redo it, though.
Top of the World (2007)  NEW!    clip   full The Carpenters (70's) pop  I love Carpenters' songs. This one is difficult enough because it moves fast, with few places to breathe. But I finally redid it, and this is a better version.
Torn clip   full Natalie Imbruglia (90's) pop/rock I really love this song, and this recording. I worked on it really hard. I may be the only one who likes it :) I have done it a few times in live karaoke, when there is a young crowd.
Torn Between Two Lovers   (2005) clip   full Mary MacGregor (70's) pop I do this hokey song very well :) Great recording.
Total Eclipse of the Heart clip   full Bonnie Tyler (80's) pop ballad I think this sounds a little "harsh", and maybe flat, in parts, so I need to fix that. Otherwise it's fine.
Touch - a Touch -a Touch -a Touch Me clip   full rocky Horror Picture Show (70's) show tunes Everyone seems to love this recording. It came out well.
Touch Me in the Morning clip   full Diana Ross (70's) pop recorded by my friend Bobby. Pretty good...not entirely happy with it, but it's pretty good. Hard to sing, very high in a weird part of my voice. Needs lots of passion. Probably have to re -listen to the original again and compare. Listening to the original helps me figure out sometimes what I'm doing wrong when I'm not happy with a recording.
Tracks of My Tears  (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Linda Ronstadt (70's) pop I really love this song...hard to get a really great recording....here is my latest!
Turning Japanese clip   full The Vapors (80's) rock Definitely needs redoing. I raised the key on this, but it's still a bit low. This is another one I did for the gender bender project.
Unforgettable (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Natalie Cole(90's) pop ballad This is another duet that I did solo...it came really well.
Upside Down (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Diana Ross(70's) disco Easy song to do....the balance is a little weird - that's the fault of the multiplex disk, though. The rhythm is a little difficult on this song.
Venus (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Shocking Blue(70's) rock This is a great song, and very easy to sing. This came out well, I think!
Walk on By clip   full Dionne Warwick (60's) pop ballad recorded by my friend Bobby. I need to learn this better, I think. I do ok here but parts sound forced. Difficult song in parts. I dunno, I go back and forth on whether I like it or not.
Walkin' on Sunshine (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Katrina & The Waves(80's) rock This is the most fun and upbeat song I know! The recording is pretty good, but I want to redo it a little sometime, now that I know the song better.
The Warrior clip   full Patty Smythe (80's) rock recorded by my friend Bobby. It is really good. I think the first note could be better, though.
The Way That I Want to Touch You (2007)  NEW!   clip   full Captain & Tennille(70's) pop I always loved this song...well, all their songs, really! This one was easy.
We Are The Champions (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Queen(70's) rock Slight glitch on this one, but otherwise it came out great!
We Belong clip   full Pat Benatar (80's) rock recorded by my friend Bobby. The backing track is very low on this one but he did a good job with fixing that. I sing it well; could use more emotion.
We're All Alone (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Rita Coolidge(70's) pop ballad I only had the backing from the Reba McIntyre version, and for some reason she sings in Spanish in the middle. I did the best I can. I love the song, though. Sometime I will get Rita's version and redo this.
We've Only Just Begun clip  full The Carpenters (70's) pop Old, bad recording, need to redo
Wedding Bell Blues clip   full 5th Dimension (60's) pop Most of this is good, but the first note is kind of weak. I haven't ever done this in live karaoke.
What's Love Got To Do With It clip   full Tina Turner (80's) rock This one is very easy for me. I think it came out very well. There is one little place where the rhythm is wrong. It has a lot of emotion. I have only done it a couple of times in live karaoke, so I probably should bring it back out again. Parts sound somewhat "raw", not sure if that is a good thing or not.
What's New Pussycat (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Tom Jones(60's) pop I had this record when I was a kid and loved it, so I just had to sing it!  A little low for me, though.
What's Up clip   full 4 Non Blondes (90's) pop/rock This is a popular song, and I've done it a lot in live karaoke. This recording came out pretty well; I can probably do it better now as there are a few flat notes. It's another "chick song", but many guys like it, too, and the audience often likes to sing along with the chorus.
What Child Is This? clip   full (Christmas) This was pretty good. I've always loved this song, since I was a little girl and singing "Greensleeves". The backing track is pretty fast...and it drowns me out a little in parts.
What I Did For Love Version 1   Version  2 A Chorus Line (70's) show tunes Here are two different versions of this song. The first is very straight-forward, much like the original cast album version. The second one is a little jazzier. I like parts of both.  Now I just need to make ONE I like, ha ha!
What I Really Meant to Say   (2006) clip   full Cyndi Thompson (recent) pop/country This is a beautiful song...I didn't know it very well when I recorded it, so I might want to do it over sometime. I have to raise the key, it's a little low. It works in any key, though, thankfully. I only sang it once so far in live karaoke but the audience really liked it. A rowdy audience might not because it's so slow. You have to put a lot of emotion into this when you sing it or else it is just very boring.
When clip   full Shania Twain (90's) rock I worked hard on this one...it came out pretty good. I love the retro sound to it, and the words, as well as the beautiful chorus. It was hard figuring out how to sing it right because I had a tendency to over -sing, trying to sound like her. But just singing it through more helped a lot. I have done it a few times in live karaoke, but most people don't know it, so it gets a lukewarm reception.
When I Fall in Love (2007)  NEW!    clip   full various(50's) ballad This is such a beautiful song, and so many people have done it, including my two favorites Karen Carpenter and Linda Ronstadt! I hope you like my version, which is okay.
When Will I Be Loved clip   full Linda Ronstadt (70's) rock one recorded by my friend Bobby. This one is pretty good. I might have to redo it sometime because it's just been a while and I think I can do it better now...
When Will I See You Again clip   full Three Degrees (70's) pop/r&b one recorded by my friend Bobby. The singing is good, but I think it could have more energy. This is great for live karaoke as long as it's not one of the lower -key versions, and I am warmed up. The chorus is around the "break" in my voice so that's why.
When You Wish Upon a Star (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Pinocchio(50s) show tunes This is the Linda Ronstadt version. I think it came out really really good.
Where Did Our Love Go? clip   full Diana Ross and The Supremes (60's) pop one recorded by my friend Bobby. This is a great recording.
A Whole New World (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Aladdin(90's) show tunes I am not 100% happy with my part on this (I kind of pushed too much on the high notes), but it's okay, and my duet partner, Paul, is fabulous!
Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under  (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Shania twain (90's) country I re-recorded this, so it came out much better.
Wide Open Spaces clip   full Dixie Chicks (recent) country I just love this song!
Wildfire (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Michael Martin Murphy(70's) pop/country I always loved this song...this came out okay, but I need to redo it a little sometime.
Windy (2007)  NEW!    clip   full The Association(60's) pop This was one of my favorites when I was a kid. I recorded it on Singsnap. It's kind of low, so I will probably re-do it with the key changer.
Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again  (2006) clip   full Phantom of the Opera (90's) show tunes clip is old, needs to be replaced.  Full version is pretty good.
Wouldn't It Be Loverly clip   full My Fair Lady (50's) show tunes This was done quickly; I definitely need to redo it because of a couple of things.
Xanadu clip   full Olivia Newton John (70's) pop/show tunes one recorded by my friend Bobby. Probably one of my best songs. I can sing it better than this now, but it's not too bad. I will have to re -record it sometime. Bobby did a great job with what he had. This goes over very well in live karaoke. The high notes at the end impress people :)
Xanadu (live version)   (2006) clip   full Olivia Newton John (70's) pop/show tunes There is way too much echo on this and the background vocals are very quiet. The singing is pretty good, for the most part. You can hear crowd sounds in the background.
XXX's & OOO's (2007)  NEW!    clip    full Trisha Yearwood (recent) country Love this, and it came out really well. I was sick with bronchitis, though, so I'll probably re-record it sometime with stronger vocals.
Year of the Cat   (2007) NEW! clip   full Al Stewart(70's) pop This is low for me, but I always loved this song.
You'll Never Walk Alone (2007)  NEW!    clip   full Carousel(50's) show tunes I did this one on Singsnap, too. I will re-record it some time as I am not entirely happy with it!
You're No Good clip   full Linda Ronstadt (70's) rock recorded by my friend Bobby. This one is always good for me and gets great reception in live karaoke, too. I am a little tired of it, though.
You're The Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me clip   full Gladys Knight and the Pips (70's) pop/r&b ballad I love the one this way turned out - lots of good emotion. The ending caught me a little by surprise when I sang it (thought it was ending but there was still a part left) , but I'm not sure if that is noticeable. It is a little low for me. There is some distortion in the recording a couple of times; that is from my tinkering with the volume on the computer. Maybe one day I will do it in live karaoke if the audience is right.
You and Me Against the World clip   full Helen Reddy (70's) pop ballad I love this song, but it's a little slow and quiet...may be boring to some.
You Are Everything  (2007) NEW! clip   full The Stylistics(70's) pop ballad I recorded this on Singsnap, so the sound quality is not great. I will probably re-do it some time.
You Are So Beautiful   (2007) NEW! clip   full Joe Cocker(70's) pop ballad This is such a beautiful song. I just sang it from the heart and it came out well.
You Belong To Me clip   full Carly Simon (70's) pop/disco One of the first songs I learned for karaoke, and I used to sing it live a lot. It's a kind of a boring song. I think this recording is pretty good.
You Don't Bring Me Flowers   (2006) clip   full Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand (70's)pop duet This came out great, I think. Steve "Cueball" sang with me on this one.
You Make Me Feel Brand New   (2007) NEW! clip   full The Stylistics (70's) pop ballad I recorded this on Singsnap, so the sound quality is not that great. The singing is fine, though! Even though I was still getting over bronchitis...
(You Make Me Feel Like) a Natural Woman   (2007) NEW! clip   full Aretha Franklin(60's) R&B I always loved this song, but I had to work it out since I don't know it all that well. This came out well!
You Must Love Me   (2007) NEW! clip   full Evita(70's) show tunes I think this came out very well, but I will probably re-record it sometime so that it is a bit stronger and more emotionally satisfying.
You Needed Me clip   full Anne Murray (70's) pop ballad Pretty song but kind of boring. Kind of low for me. Best I can do for now. I've never done this one in live karaoke before.
You Were Meant for Me clip   full Jewel (recent) pop Sometimes I like this, other times I don't. It was very difficult to record because it's a half -talking song. I tried to put lots of emotion into it like Jewel does. Hope you like it :)
Your Mother Should Know clip   full The Beatles (60's) pop ballad I love this cute Beatles old -timey -sounding tune. I like the way the recording came out. I haven't yet done it in live karaoke.
Zombie   (2007) NEW! clip   full The Cranberries(recent) rock Love this song and I hope I do it justice. I am not in love with it, but it's pretty good.
