Who'da Thunk It?!

With the end-of-the-year bounenkai season edging closer, groups are getting their party dates and locations lined up. I'll be going to at least four--the company party, and ones for the vocal class and two anison karaoke circles I'm a member of. The first sometimes includes karaoke; the latter three definitely will.

Hope to sing something at the parties that most folks haven't heard me do before--a song I love to pieces but haven't done in front of anyone else since 2006 (when it earned me my fan nickname) for fear it would get old. So, since I'd be finishing Space Cobra opening "Cobra" today in vocal class and would need to choose a new song to work on, I brought along the prospective tune's CD single.

Before this, I'd only picked songs that M-sensei recorded (yep, that includes "Cobra"; she did an album of anime song covers for label Apollon in the mid-1980s ;^) )--don't want to miss the opportunity for guidance as absolutely expert as it gets! But this possible new pick would be so-o-o obscure...

"I'd kind of like to do this next," I explained, handing over the CD single and pointing out the last track, "but, do you know this song...?"

"Know it?" she grinned. "I love it! I really liked the anime, too--the characters, the story...I watched it every week." She belted out the song's first few double-entendre-riffic lines from memory, as my jaw dropped nearly to my knees-- she not only knows Midori no Makibaoh end theme "Tottemo Umanami," she was a fan of the show, too! 8^D
