Andrew McConnell shares his karaoke party-starters

Andrew McConnell

Andrew McConnell

You could have guessed at the soy and mirin, but at Supernormal Andrew McConnell also likes to season his modern Asian cooking with a dash of Salt-N-Pepa. As befits its Japanese inspiration, the Melbourne chef's latest is kitted out with a karaoke room, offering popular singalong hits to go with your pig's head bao, Korean-style pork shoulder and white-cut chicken.

As any karaoke devotee will tell you, those first few song choices are key to kicking things off right (at GT we're partial to "Walk Like an Egyptian" by The Bangles, "Our House" by Madness, and Cee Lo Green's "F-ck You"), so to get your party started, we asked McConnell to share a few of his own K-hits:

-    "Roses", Outkast
-    "Kiss", Prince
-    Just Can't Get Enough, Depeche Mode
-    "Creep", Radiohead
-    "Shoop", Salt-N-Pepa ("the last song of the night; it always gets everyone up and funky")

Like us, McConnell is also a fan of the surprisingly challenging "Islands in the Stream", by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. "I sang this in Tokyo last year with my girlfriend," he says. "It was my first duet. Very emotional."

What do you want to sing over duck buns, a few rounds of Asahi and a Mukai Shuzo or two? Hit our Facebook page and let us know.
