Killer Karaoke

We here at the studio have always held to the ‘Golden Rule of Karaoke’ – that you must listen to your fellow warblers with the same generosity that you would like them to extend to you when you prove to be over-ambitious in attempting that high note. But we’ve all been there, sitting in a bar or restaurant with the slight fear that your ears will start to bleed due to the wannabe Carrie Underwood with the karaoke mike. However, this fabulous and bizarre article in the New York Times (which can be read here) proves how lucky we are; in the Philippines, one song has proven so deadly that many karaoke bars have removed it entirely. What is this song? Well, we’ll let you read it for yourself, but next time you find yourself thinking evil thoughts to the woman who has proven for the 7,689th time that a few drinks does not actually make it more likely that you can sing ‘And I Will Always Love You’ like Whitney Houston, reflect on how lucky you have it.
