My Kinda Lover

The real reason I love Karaoke so much?

Most of the songs are from the early ‘80s, when I was a very young teenager.

I don’t know if my brain was in an “imprinting” cycle, but it amazes me when lyrics of songs from this period tumble out of me when I hear that song audibly.

This experience is especially profound when I hear a song I haven’t heard in decades.

The jolt back to the years when I felt most alive is why I’m so besotted with my beloved Karaoke.

  1. That’s a great way to describe karaoke. I don’t really seek out karaoke, but I can totally relate to listening to music from my childhood and just being transported back to my carefree days. Thanks for this post!

    1. Thanks for reading! I don’t get too many comments, so I’m glad it was relatable. The song that first had this effect on me was “Magic Power” by Triumph. I don’t think I’ve heard that song since 1982, but someone sang it my first night at a karaoke bar. I was shocked that I knew all the words (I stood up and sang along with him), and I felt 14 all over again. That’s got to be a good thing for anyone, right?
