Nervy Nervy :S

I'm going to sing in my first audition for "One Seagate Idol Singing Championship 2011" later this afternoon, and I'm the only one representing Engineering Department. =.=

I'm the only one from my department? sienz.

Frankly, I registered for this audition because of much coaxing and persuasion from colleagues, and it's always my weakness to find it hard to reject someone's offer or to turn down someone's request.

I chose an oldies for my 1st audition. Hope I can sing it well. and not 'mensiasuikan' The Carpenters. ;P
Anyway, I coudn't decide at first which one to sing, Yesterday once more or Close to you. But dad said I sang better and can perform better in Close to you. So I chose it. =)

There are actually a lot of minus one tracks on YouTube actually, from Taylor Swift to The Carpenters. (Hint: just type "karaoke" behind any song title you are looking for and you will get it)

I inserted two clips of this song here in my post. One is the original song, another one is the minus one track.
Enjoy your karaoke session! =)

Title: Close To You by The Carpenters
Lyrics :
Why do birds
Suddenly appear?
Everytime you are near
Just like me
They long to be
Close to you
Why do stars
Fall down from the sky?
Everytime you walk by
Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

(*) on the day that you were born
The angels got together and decided
To create a dream come true

So they sprinkled moondust in your hair
Of gold and starlight in your eyes of blue

(**) that is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around
Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

Repeat (*)
Repeat (**)

Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

Woo... close to you...
