Just For Fun: Take Me or Leave Me Karaoke Video from RENT

So I decided to do a video response on YouTube today, something I’ve never done. It’s karaoke: “Take Me or Leave Me” from Jonathan Larson’s musical RENT.

RENT was my favorite musical for many years. I saw it on Broadway three times when I was in college, going so far as to camp out for tickets overnight. I’ve also seen the travel company do it twice. In my younger days, I always thought it would be fun to play Maureen, despite my heterosexuality and the fact that I’m far more Joanne than I am Maureen. In any case, this gave me an opportunity to sing Maureen’s part “with” another person singing as Joanne.

Please be kind. My facial expressions are less than flattering sometimes, and I flubbed the end a little. But I think the rest is pretty solid. Hope you enjoy!

Here’s a link to the original video for anyone who wants to give it a try.
