It is my friend's 40th in a couple of weeks and I have madly said I will bring a karaoke machine (why do i do things like that????). I somehow thought they would cost about £20 .

Does anyone have one??

Do I win long shot of the year award?

Yup

Can you hire one? Maybe from a mobile disco (of which there were many when I was growing up in your neck of the woods, though my information is probably a bit out-of-date!)

can you hire them?

and what the hell are they anyway?

Is it just a cd, but how do you know the words?

can you tell I have never done it before but I saw it in Lost in Translation and it looked like fun

Enid, you can get a karaoke game on Playstation, have you got one? Can you borrow one? The game is called Singstar and we've got it if you want to borrow it, or maybe there's a mumsnetter nearer you who has it? 2 mics come with it. So you need a tv, a PS2, this game. There are only about 20 songs but I did particularly well with Blondie's Heart of Glass Here it is, does it look suitable?

There's a track listing there on Amazon, enough to keep a load of thirtysomethings happy I reckon! Careless Whisper and Like A Virgin, what more could you want?

Enid Sun 27-Mar-05 21:47:51

how utterly fantastic. that looks perfect. we have a ps2 and they have the tv...

Its not something you could post is it???

Enid Sun 27-Mar-05 21:48:12

actually I might just buy it

Enid Sun 27-Mar-05 21:48:57

Does it have:

"You mad nutter, stop driving so fast" on it?

WideWebWitch Sun 27-Mar-05 21:49:59

Enid, apparently the mics aren't that light but yes, it is postable (or if you're going to be in this direction I could meet you) when do you need it?

WideWebWitch Sun 27-Mar-05 21:50:53

Hey, there are used ones on Amazon for fifteen quid! pmsl @ mad nutter

WideWebWitch Sun 27-Mar-05 21:52:24

Looks like you ought to get that Singstar party one too for a 40th!

WideWebWitch Sun 27-Mar-05 21:53:41

It is surprisingly good fun: it plays you back afterwards and rates you compared to the original! I think I was 98% Debbie Harry <preen preen>

Enid Sun 27-Mar-05 21:54:31

WideWebWitch Sun 27-Mar-05 21:56:40

We had dance mats kids vs adults (2 x PS2s set up on a cinema screen sized wall with a projector) and it was hilarious! Great fun.

Enid Sun 27-Mar-05 21:56:55

no this is ironic and girly, not naff

Enid Sun 27-Mar-05 21:57:20

do you want to come www

WideWebWitch Sun 27-Mar-05 21:57:49

Video killed the radio star but only because I scored highly on that too! Ha ha cod at muchomistrust!

WideWebWitch Sun 27-Mar-05 21:58:51

Oh I'm soooo sorry to have mentioned something naff when you're going for ironic and girly. And postmodern maybe?
