Bruce L. Russell, author of 'A Night in Hell'

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

If Karaoke had been popular in 1957, he’d have been into it. It would sound a bit like ‘The Gambler’ by Kenny Rogers ... not so much the tune, but the way it’s delivered and the country-and-western flavour. Why? Because singing and drinking go together like rum and coke.

There’s a feeling that you’re falling

A warm stream of delight

A gradual unravelling

A steep track in the night

Then you know that you’re a Palms boy

You’re a clubbie, you’re a clown

And it’s hell that you were seeking

And it’s Hell you finally found.
