A WOMAN has ruined a pleasant night out for everyone in a pub by taking the karaoke far too seriously.
Amateur singer Donna Sheridan drained the fun from her local over a three-hour period as she doggedly insisted on showing off her strained warbling to a room full of exhausted drinkers.
Sheridan said: “For some people being bad at karaoke is all part of the fun. But I think if something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing properly.
“As usual I decided to kick off with a husky rendition of ‘Wuthering Heights’. I hit the wrong note a couple of times, but I just started again from the beginning and nailed it on the third go.
“I couldn’t hear any complaints over the sound of my ear-splitting singing so I don’t think anyone minded. Then it was onto karaoke classics like ‘I Will Always Love You’. People definitely want to hear that again.
“It’s a shame none of my mates had time for a go, but times flies when you’re screaming ‘I can’t live, if living is without you’ into the mic.”
Friend Tom Booker said: “You should hear her when she sings ‘Happy Birthday to You’. By which I mean you shouldn’t.”
