What an amateur way to go out on Thursday night and celebrate the Top 30 entry of "Thinking of Someone Else" in the UK's Music Week Pop/Club Chart as of next week... KARAOKE bar for two - yes, karaoke!
Top numbers of the night? Let's see... Our "celebration" playlist was diverse (and impromptu) ranging from "Beauty and the Beast" to "Hey Jude" and then on to a couple of Russian songs that neither of us thought we'd remember after all these years!
The strangest part of the big celebration was the following - I never told my friend about the single charting in the UK alongside today's commercial hits, such as Anastacia, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Boy George, etc. Why? I was too embarrassed to come across as pretentious, I guess. Not a very solid excuse, I agree, but I wasn't quite sure it was appropriate.
The night was spent in the karaoke bar celebrating the "X News" except I forgot to mention it... But what a blast - and the worst part of it was that I actually took it VERY seriously and sang most of the songs as if it were a proper performance. Sad, really, but hilarious!!
So once we're in the Top 20, where shall we celebrate it? (Openly, I hope.)
Still wondering... Can't come up with the best possible venue as of yet... And the most unusual one, too!
