To me, 'karaoke' is a Japanese word that means "you must leave this place as soon as the caterwauling starts"

/どうもありがとうございました

Well you don't because it's simply "Karaoke Leads To Murder Charge".

Since we just had a headline about people getting killed for doing bad Sinatra karaoke in the Philippines, I think I'd have to say a) it's a LOT More common than I'd expect, and b) I think in the future I will be less receptive of my girlfriend trying to get me to go for karaoke.

Damn, I was going to express my shock that it happened in CA rather than the Philippines, but you beat me to it.

My local dive bar does karaoke several times a week. Most of the regulars are really very good. The owner/bar tender is this cute little woman. She'll tuck the mic under her arm and sing while making drinks. She also does dirty lyric versions of some classics. All around good fun.

In all fairness, he did say someone was getting shot if he had to hear 'Summer Lovin' one more goddamn time.
 
2012-07-20 08:05:41 AM
you know in the philippines this is common with people singing "I did it my way" by frank sinatra.
for some reason that sets people off there if you sing it wrong. fights, murder, mass hysteria.


and now im engaged to a flip
 
2012-07-20 08:09:49 AM
They wouldn't reveal the song that caused the shooting, ya know as a juror that would be very important to me.
 
2012-07-20 08:10:41 AM
I am ashamed to say I own a karaoke machine, however in my defense I do require anyone who wants to use it to first go out to my storage shed and jump on the old TM 46 I brought back from Desert Storm.

a round of country music karaoke

Well, there you go. The music itself's to blame, what with all that singing about 'rrrrrrAAAAH got freeinns in laaaaaow plaayces' and shiat. It's emblematic of a sick culture. You know what white people are like...

Well except for the good ones.

Of course we do... it was a greenlit thread like 3 days ago

When i attempted to sing The Killers - All These Things That I Have Done, I thought I might die. That was the single-worst karaoke performance i have ever witnessed. And i was the one singing.
 
2012-07-20 09:12:14 AM
We generally have a lot of fun when we go karaoke. We'll take a big group with us and make everyone sing though.

I also believe its one of those stories that gets greenlit like once a year, along with the hick who gets a DUI while driving his lawnmower tractor and the thousand dollar hamburger in NYC.

But yeah, karaoke = serious biz'ness in that country. No, they won't kill you if you are off-tune, but the only other folks I've seen as catty about one's singing style (or lack thereof) is if you go to a gay piano lounge on open mike night. Seriously.
