NCPT14 Inaugural Poker Tournament Karaoke Mulligan Selection

We have a late entrant into the eligible songs for Karaoke Mulligan:  Ylvis’ What Does the Fox Say.  Anyone singing this from start to finish, including the dance, will get 500 bonus chips.  If William does it, he gets 5000 bonus chips.  After watching this masterpiece, I don’t think there will be any argument, even though I have not run this past the commissioner.

Here’s the link to the video: What Does the Fox Say?


Unless I get a waiver from Gregg, I’m going to try to avoid the Primary Wave Media properties, so he does not try to collect royalties on the spot.

Musical selections for Week 1 (will try to have a mix for those with different musical interests) Links to lyrics are adjacent to titles.  It would behoove you to spend a little time on youtube, iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, Rhapsody, or wherever/however listen to your music beefing up your style.  A dry, William Shatneresque recitation will not fly here.

William, if you prefer to recite poetry instead of sing, we’ll make an exception in your case.  In that case, something from Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du Mal would appropriate.  If there are any other octogenarians on hand, we’ll make a similar exception.

Don Ho’s Tiny Bubbles

Cole Porter’s I Get a Kick Out of You

Springsteen’s Thunder Road

Talking Heads’ Life During Wartime

Sir Mix-a-Lot’s Baby Got Back

Eminem’s The Real Slim Shady

And of course, the obligatory Grateful Dead song: Box of Rain

Let the games begin, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

  1. Mike, I’m surprised by your virulent anti-Ylvis response. I always took you for a cosmopolite, a man of the world. Here’s a link to info on Ylvis to elucidate and enhance your perspective:

    But, there is more than one flavor of gelato out there for a reason. Perhaps you prefer something a little more provincial:

    I want you to know that I am a pluralist, and won’t judge you for whichever part of the spectrum in which you fall. There’s room for all except haters in my world.
