Dramatic Reading: I Love the Nightlife

this is an audio post - click to play

Katt apparently blames me for her slide into dementia, and as such has demanded as reparations a dramatic reading of I Love the Nightlife.

While I admit no culpability in this matter, I will comply. Because she is a little down right now because her husband is away on a job. Because it give me pleasure to make others happy. But mostly because I am a dork.

I did it on the first take even though Mrs. Fab started to make me laugh halfway through it because she was convulsed in silent giggles. She finally had to look away. It seems I gesture animatedly when I do these readings.

Like I said, a dork.

I think I enjoy the dramatic readings more than the actual singing...mainly because it's very clear that you can read. The singing? Not quite so much.

I don't know if you get Peter Kay (comedian) over there but he played a fire safety officer. He did a dramatic reading of "Burn Baby Burn, Disco Inferno". It cracked me up.

Maybe you could do it too. I tried to find a clip on You Tube but couldn't. :(

AWESOME!!

I would like to request Mr. Roboto.

Mr. Roboto
Written by Dennis DeYoung
Lead Vocals by Dennis DeYoung

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Mata ah-oo hima de
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Himitsu wo shiri tai

You're wondering who I am-machine or mannequin
With parts made in Japan, I am the modren man

I've got a secret I've been hiding under my skin
My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain I.B.M.
So if you see me acting strangely, don't be surprised
I'm just a man who needed someone, and somewhere to hide
To keep me alive-just keep me alive
Somewhere to hide to keep me alive

I'm not a robot without emotions-I'm not what you see
I've come to help you with your problems, so we can be free
I'm not a hero, I'm not a saviour, forget what you know
I'm just a man whose circumstances went beyond his control
Beyond my control-we all need control
I need control-we all need control

I am the modren man, who hides behind a mask
So no one else can see my true identity

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto, domo...domo
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto, domo...domo
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto, domo...domo
Thank you very much, Mr. Roboto
For doing the jobs that nobody wants to
And thank you very much, Mr. Roboto
For helping me escape just when I needed to
Thank you-thank you, thank you
I want to thank you, please, thank you

The problem's plain to see: too much technology
Machines to save our lives. Machines dehumanize.

The time has come at last
To throw away this mask
So everyone can see
My true identity...
I'm Kilroy! Kilroy! Kilroy! Kilroy!

Pud--I think it might be, although there is no money involved...

Vixen--Careful what you wish for LOL

Cherish--Hmm...that might be a good idea...

CS--Oh, I know. I AM a drama queen!

Some Girl--I'm glad it made you laugh! :)

Oh my gosh, I am almost peeing my pants!!! ROFLMAO!!! I think all of the "Oh yeah's" got me!

I think you should do a song that celebrates your inner gayness. Something like "Dancing Queen" by ABBA. :)
