Memory 07: (Un)Common People

Common PeopleTo this day I don’t know why I agreed to karaoke Pulp’s Common People that afternoon. Perhaps I was tired of all the anxiety that had been affecting me that day, perhaps I was running on adrenalin after several of the most fun hours of my life or perhaps I was just overly nervous of what was to follow.

The way things are now, I don’t think I’d have the confidence to get on stage and sing unless there was at least three people besides me; but, however awful I actually was, I am insanely happy that for a brief few minutes I found the confidence to entertain everyone in the room with my caterwauling.
