Today, for karaoke, I sang American Woman by Lenny Kravitz. The entire audience cracked up laughing and at least three people pulled out their cell phones to record my performance. At the end, the DJ said, "Looks like someone had too much tonight." I was completely sober. FML

Lenny Kravitz' cover version of The Guess Who's hit "American Woman" was originally was for the soundtrack of Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. It was added to the album '5' as a bonus track in 1999. It helped The Guess Who's song reach a new audience and won him another Grammy in 2000.

It doesn't necessarily mean that he thinks that the song's by Lenny Kravitz; he was probably singing to the Lenny Kravitz version of the backing track, thus justifying saying it was by him. Anyways, this is funny as fuck.

Sadly, that happens a lot. American Idol provides SO much proof that some people just don't know how bad they sound while singing.

But OP, this really isn't a huge FML. At least the people there thought you were singing bad because you were drunk, instead of because you just don't have the greatest tone. Take the strong hint handed to you by this experience and don't sing in public. Unless you secretly enjoyed this experience, of course. :)

the_deuce -- I think this is kind of a YDI for the OP just because he's taking karaoke so seriously. Like you said, people do it for fun, not as a serious performance. It's not really an big FML that people think he sings bad karaoke, people wouldn't go to karaoke if they wanted to hear people sing well. It's kinda an FML that he just now found out that he isn't a great singer even while sober, but he needs to lighten up a bit and enjoy singing bad karaoke. Or find something else to do with his time.


it's an FML, because telling him he was bad would have been enough, but they went as far as to ask him if he was drunk. oh well, ur right though, it'll all blow over in the morning, and the OP will either get singing lessons or forget that it ever happened.
