            If you're real charismatic and confident, bust these out for some singalong goodness:

              ....to worry about something as trivial as song selection.

                          Here's a tip - if you put out some horrible lo-fi recording that sounds like a Gorilla banging an antelope while using a vacuum with a bad belt drive to suck up a floor full of marbles and silverware - and folks don't line up in mass numbers to hop on your wagon... maybe it ain't us who don't "get it". - THX1138

                            Not that I would ever sing it but "I've got friends in Low Places".. Is a great sing along song for bars.. I have been on cruise ships where that was played and the whole ship sang it... young and old
