Thanks to whoever took an interest in my repertoire.
My total hit is "Wonderful Tonight," which is very popular in Thailand. Any band can play it at the drop of a hat, and usually in a good key for the non-professional (me). It's also on every karaoke machine, every karaoke computer program I mean. I have a nice umbrella that I won singing "Wonderful Tonight."
I get a great response to "Your Cheatin' Heart" too, I can sing the heck out of that one.
I try to stay away from "Country Roads," which is not easy because it is like the national song of Thailand or something. The key is always too high, and besides, I hate the song. I hate "I Started a Joke" even more, I may just refuse to sing that on principle ("I don't know what it means!").
If young kids ask me if I can sing, "Krue Farang! Rong pleng dai mai krap!" I start clapping my hands and make them follow in the rhythm, then I sing "Hey, Good Lookin'" another Hank Williams song. It's a happy sounding song, they don't get the meaning anyway.
"Stand By Me" is becoming a regular bit, and "Imagine" sounds good too. With a band, you can tell them the name to any Eagles song and they're ready to go. I like "Take it Easy," but I try to stay away from "Hotel California."
