Jon Doust, author of 'The Man with the Moustache'

What song would the narrator/protagonist of your story sing at a karaoke bar and why?

He’s singing Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. No other. In a karaoke bar he would make it his own, bring it up from his guts, relive his miserable life all over and keep on singing ’till the room emptied. Maybe this Freddie Mercury masterpiece was the source of ‘The Man with the Moustache’, but it wasn’t. Was it? So what if it was, or wasn’t, nothing really matters. Does it?
