Dunder Mifflin Karaoke

Michael losing himself to James Blunt’s “Goodbye My Lover” was painfully awesome and just the beginning of a sing-along spectacular holiday episode of The Office last night. There’s a two minute recap here, but it unfortunately omits those priceless karaoke moments. Here’s what the crew treated us with during their Dunder Mifflin holiday party

  • Kevin sang “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette (with extra “You”s)
  • Michael and Andy sang “Your Body Is A Wonderland” by John Mayer
  • Kelly sang “We Belong Together” by Pat Benatar (creeping Ryan the fuck out)
  • Dwight sang “Lady” by Styx (Angela smiled!)
  • Angela sang “Little Drummer Boy” (with Dwight as mic stand)

  • Creed sang something, too — anybody remember what song that was? Best performance goes either to Kevin’s burning take on Alanis, or Michael’s “Your Body Is A Wonderland,” if only for his expression when Benihana Girl #1 (or was it #2) rode up on the bike (classic). And the holiday lesson Michael learned last night? Bros before … well, he’s better at it than we are.

    UPDATE: John Mayer’s no fool. From his blog (thanks, Bryan!):

    One of my favorite shows on television, The Office, wanted to use my song “Your Body Is A Wonderland” in a scene for their Christmas episode. Now, I’m not making apologies for my work, but it’s safe to say I don’t get asked to use “Wonderland” for strongman competitions and documentaries about aircraft carriers. I get asked so that people can goof on it. I initially turned the request down, but after thinking about it, (and hearing the details on the incredibly funny sounding scene from producer BJ Novak) I decided to go for it – but with one stipulation:

    I want a Dundie.

    Quid pro quo. Well played, J May. Congrats on your Dundie for “Tallest Music Dude.”
