There was a Christmas party in our building tonight. Booze, band, karaoke. Unspeakably bad karaoke. The band wasn’t much better. But these partiers destroyed the memories of classic ’70s and ’80s staples by the likes of Journey (Don’t Stop Believin’), Styx (Come Sail Away) and Billy Joel (Kill us a song, you’re the piano butcher), among other gems. And when the echoes of the worst karaoke ever experienced in human history finally died, it took a few moments for us to realize the madness had stopped.
And there was much rejoicing.
