12 Days of Karaoke- Day 10

Weezer- "If You're Wondering if I Want You To (I Want You To)"

This is easily the newest song on this list, but since it has been in heavy radio rotation for a good year and a half now, your favorite karaoke hotspot most likely has it. And if not, demand it, because this is certainly a good number. As any fan of music knows, Weezer's radio singles are almost always top notch. However, a good song does not always translate into karaoke goodness. Take, for example, another Weezer song, "Buddy Holly," is an amazing little tune (with an excellent guitar riff in the bridge/solo), but for whatever reason it doesn't go over very well when Rivers Cuomo is not singing it. For shame.

This one, however, gets everyone's toes tapping and sometimes even provides some actual backup dancing. The call and response chorus is another benefit that can help out an otherwise timid singer. And since the song is sort of about being timid itself, it fits. Enjoy the music video below.

This Day in History

1932- Radio City Music Hall in New York City first opened to the public. It was especially well-received as this was during the height of the Great Depression. The hall was designed as a palace for the people, a place of beauty where ordinary people could see high-quality entertainment. Since its opening 78 years ago, more than 300 million people have gone to Radio City to enjoy movies, stage shows, concerts, and special events.
