Top Six Karaoke Songs for Music Nerds, According to the Ladies of Super Lips!

Where do the supercool geeks go when they just wanna siiiiiiing?

Duh. The Let's Sang party at Lester's.

Debuting tonight, this thang is being described as "karaoke for music nerds." And it's hosted by the fine ladies of Super Lips, otherwise known as DJ Oly and New Times own Liz Tracy.

"Now's your chance to sing your rendition of Kraftwerk, Buzzcocks, NWA or Otis Redding! Interpretation is key!"

Just check the cut for Super Lips' top six karaoke songs, in alphabetical order. Oh, and don't forget your daily vocal exercises, nerds.

1. The Buzzcocks' "Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've)"

"This song is self explanatory," Oly tells Crossfade, "because who hasn't fallen in love with someone you shouldn't've? Yeah, it's, like, been there done that. Check! Plus it's energetic and just gets me in the mood to boogie. Never heard it at a karaoke party, but that's where Super Lips comes in. Cue in the cool old punk songs!"

2. The Descendents' "Bikeage"

"This band is pretty epic for me. I always found myself on the same moral ground as Milo, the singer of the Descendents. I hear this and I'm totally 17 all over again, hating on jocks."

3. Kraftwerk's "The Model"

"First time I heard Kraftwerk was in hip-hop songs in the '80s. When I got older, and I realized there was a band behind these samples, my brain almost imploded. Yeah, Kraftwerk, good for any occasion or any season. Especially for music nerds."

4. The Magnetic Fields' "Book Of Love"

"This song is so charming and Stephen Merritt's voice makes me wanna do my very own tranny version," Oly enthuses. "And 'Tranny' because that's what I sound like when I sing this low."

5. Paul McCartney's "Coming Up"

"I'm a sucker for Paul McCartney. And here is one of his less weird songs that's featured in our Super Lips party. (We also have "Temporary Secretary" .... Total weirdo shit.) This song just makes me wanna dance!"

6. The Pixies' "Here Comes your Man"

"Well, it's the '90s all over again. Or so it seems. This was the first song I learned on bass guitar, and I still love it."

And the Bonus Track ...

Serge Gainsbourg's "La Javanaise"

"One more for good measure! This makes me want to go back to Paris and turn back time to the 1960s. Preferably in a black-and-white film by Truffaut where I can kiss mon chéri all day."
