We have produced a lovely song menu for tonight’s rotational karaoke event. Probably the highlight of the London dating scenes’ calendar – the #WheelofDate. Online dating site DoingSomething.co.uk and Time Out London Got Together to put on an actual wheel of date, where each capsule of the ‘EDF Energy London Eye’ is taken over by a different ‘date’ experience.
So of course, our rag-tag crew of Ukulele players of KaraUke were chosen to take over several capsules. Our aim is to unite singles by forcing them to perform duets of songs under a ‘romance’ or ‘bad romance’ banner. I am sure the shared bonding experience of starting a mass singalong by the rest of the ‘pod can only go on to form the solid base from which to start a modern relationship. You know, a bit like in movies where they get together at the end after a pretty epic, wild ride. I am thinking of ‘speed’ here.
But that is enough waffle. Let the singers see the songs!
Single in London? Then you may be interested in this unique and exciting event organised by Time Out London and Doing Something.
The whole London Eye will be taken over, with each capsule containing a different dating experience for small groups. Afterwards there will be an afterparty in the Old Vic Tunnels for the 500 people taking part.
We will be in a capsule, enabling Londons most fun singletons a chance to partake in some Karaoke with a live Ukulele backing band. We are looking to pair people up with a selection of duets, which could prove to be quite a bonding experience!
So far this is our draft playlist of songs…
