Pro-Choice Pop Star

posted by on September 2 at 17:04 PM

At long last, thanks to NARAL Pro-Choice Washington, I’ve discovered the perfect way to combine my two favorite things: Neil Diamond and abortions! (I mean, a way that doesn’t involve breaking and entering and the phrase “Breathe into this rag, Neil Diamond.”)

This Saturday, September 6th, I’ll be “celebrity” judging the Pro-Choice Pop Star karaoke contest and cocktail mixer (to benefit NARAL) at the Spitfire in Belltown. My worthy fellow judges are the über-beloved DJ Riz, and the sprung-from-our-governor’s-loins Michelle Gregoire. Also on hand will be macabre ringmaster Armitage Shanks, comedian Vince Valenzuela, and my parents!

Points will be awarded for “Best Pro-Choice Take on a Song” (last year’s winner, apparently, was “There Are Worse Things I Could Do” from Grease). A few suggestions for this year: “Hit Me, Baby, One More Time” or, perhaps, “Oops! I Did It Again.”

View the flyer here.

Sssshhhh. Go to sleep, Neil Diamond. GO TO SLEEP!

best I can come up with, Lindy

I GOT THE FEELIN' (OH NO, NO)

Oh no, no, no, no
Baby, something's wrong
Oh no, no, no, no
That old time fire is gone
It's not so much the things you say, love
It's what you don't say I'm afraid of

I got the feeling'
I'm hearin' goodbye
Don't have to say it
It's there in your eyes
Oh why, oh my

Oh no, no, no, no
You don't smile the same
Oh no, no, no, no
Like you been hidin' pain
I love you so much, I could taste it
But girl, your eyes tell me it's wasted

I got the feelin'
I'm hearin' goodbye
Don't have to say it
It's there in your eyes
Oh why, oh my

Oh no, oh no
Oh no, baby

I got the feelin'
I'm hearin' goodbye
I got the feelin'
That I'm gonna die

If this post were any more insiderish, it would be crawling out of its own colon.

That's ok, John, we don't mind that you're so insiderish.

Just an FYI, Lindy, I have discovered the converse to this post--Pro Life Pop Star Rachael Lampa. She's singing at the RNC right now.

And John Bailo is right. This post betrays your insider knowledge of NARAL, vaginas, Britney jams, and abortions.

@2 What is insiderish about people singing pop tunes in public? Though, I guess you have point, only Lindy's close personal friends have ever heard of Neil Diamond.
