Last year, I got addicted to Mag:Net High Street’s Monday Rockeoke Nights. I blame it on Judd and Carlos of Nuffnang PH LOL. I declared Monday night as Rockeoke night during the first part of 2010. After my work in Quezon City, I would go home to eat quick dinner, dress up and go straight to Bonifacio High Street to jam with my friends.
Usually, songs like ‘Sweet Child of Mine’, ‘Alone’, ‘Creep’ and ‘With or Without You’ Â and ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ is on our song list. We would listen to Gabe Mercado, Wanggo Gallaga or Quark Henares as they threw punchlines after every performance.
One of the songs I usually perform on Rockeoke nights is Mr. Big’s ‘To Be With You‘. I remember Wanggo saying that it is a pub song and it is rare for a girl to sing the song onstage. Since the original version had male vocals on it, i sang my own version by switching the words ‘girl’ to ‘boy’. I’m glad that in my three attempts to sing the song live, i can say that i had a good performance and I think i am the only one who was brave enough to sing that song LOL.
