Favorite karaoke song:

“Wheel of Fortune” by Ace of Base

Most epic karaoke moment:

We pick this song every single time we go sing karaoke, but there’s one little problem—we don’t know any of the words. We’re really good at drinking and dancing though, so, there’s that.

Favorite karaoke song:

Loretta Lynn’s “Fist City,” because it’s the twangy country version of Nivea’s “Don’t Mess With My Man.”

Most epic karaoke moment:

Budget K-Town P. Diddy White Party—no joke. My friends and I all dressed up in white and took over a little Korean karaoke spot. I also have a signature, perhaps epic, karaoke move—I like to single someone out in the room, preferably someone I don’t know, look them dead in the eye and sing to them—you know, really creep them out ¯_(ツ)_/¯.

Favorite karaoke song:

“Wannabe” by Spice Girls

Most epic karaoke moment:

I used to go to a little dive bar in Goleta called Old Town Tavern back in my college days. I’d roll deep with eight of my girlfriends and we’d literally sing our hearts out every Wednesday night!

Favorite karaoke song:

I never trust a big butt and a smile, so my go to karaoke song is “Poison” by Bell Biv DeVoe.

Most epic karaoke moment:

A few months ago, I decided to go to Break Room 86 in Koreatown with a few friends and when it was my turn to pick the song, I picked Poison. So naturally, the homies and I (plus one random dude I had never seen before) start bustin’ out our running mans and roger rabbits. It was pretty epic, so of course I had to whip my phone out and hit that Snapchat. Before I could even finish unlocking my phone, it flew out of my hand. I turned around and the random dude that was in the room with us had my phone in his hand and was screaming at me saying, “No photography, man. Do it again and I’ll have you kicked out.”

Turns out this random dude just so happened to be one of the co-founders of Sugarfish by Sushi Nozawa. He is best friends with the Houston twins (who own the bar) and I guess I missed the “no photography” memo. There goes my shot at getting discounts at Sugarfish, shit.


Caroline Sill, Social Marketing Performance Manager1

Favorite karaoke song:

I can’t pick one, so here’s my regular line up: “Saving All My Love For You” by Whitney Houston, “When You’re Good to Mama” from the Broadway musical Chicago (which includes dancing and audience participation), “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls, “Royals” by Lorde, “At Last” by Etta James, and “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt (for the late night lonely crowd).

Most epic karaoke moment:

I used to hit up the NYC karaoke circuit pretty regularly—mostly piano bars and dives in the East Village. In the art of karaoke, I am a total diva. I have three strict rules: I don’t wait to perform, I don’t do duets, and I don’t sing unless I’ve had three drinks or more.

One night, in a little Korean karaoke bar called Sing Sing (which quickly became my favorite), I learned if you pay the bartenders cold, hard cash, they’ll give you what’s called a fast pass. Needless to say, I’d wind up spending $100 and everyone in the bar hated me for taking their turn, but I sure did put on a show. No fewer than three times have I been asked if I’m currently in a Broadway musical… to which I always reply, “yes, Phantom… you should check it out.”
