Went for karaoke the other day with Fayth, Gin, Bobo and Sherlyn. All of them are serious karaoke-rs especially Sherlyn who basically sings for a living. Yea she’s that good.
No wonder when we went for karaoke once with my parents and Ooib, Sherlyn refused to touch the mic. Probably scared that if she did, all of us would turn mute for the evening. She’s probably right too lolol.
Anyway Sherlyn said when she was younger she had a bunch of housemates with whom she regularly went for karaoke with. And ALL of them could sing. Not just keep a note but really belt out a tune I think.
So she said she used to not want to go for karaoke with anyone who couldn’t sing WTF. Super elitist can! If this was the past she sure would have refused to come out with us hahaha.
But after a while she said she realized that karaoke is about having fun and lightened up a bit wtf.
Anyway that got us talking about manners during karaoke and people who are erm not so fun to go sing with. A lot of sensitive people nowadays need to put disclaimer. D: None of the below is meant to be taken seriously ok! These are just rubbish things we were laughing about and only reflect the views of very kiasu karaoke-rs. Ahem.
1. People who are tone deaf
This one quite pitiful not their fault ma hahahahaha. Why, even our own Suetpants is tone deaf hahahaha. But her tone deafness is very magical! She always ALWAYS sings two whole notes higher than what it’s supposed to be. So when she sings with you, it sounds damn nice cos it’s as if she’s harmonizing successfully with the melody hahahahahaha.
But Gin said she had a friend who LOVES karaoke. Like loves it as much as I love…laughing at people wtf. Sadly, the friend is also as tone deaf as a stone. So every time she opens her mouth to sing, Gin says she feels like fainting hahahahaha. Then she said once she couldn’t take it anymore and cut off her song midway HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
Friend: “eh why you cut off my song?”
Gin: “oh sorry accidentally.”
HAHAHAHAHAH WHERE CAN LIKE THIS ONE! The friend would probably just repick her song and Gin would have to sit through it again what!
Anyway that brings me to the next point.
2. People who choose a lot of songs.
You know the type. After that person has been at the remote, you’ll find that there are 1-2 pages worth of songs chosen by that person only FYL. Then everybody has to sit through about an hour long solo concert from the fella until someone else gets a turn.
3. People who sing along to your song.
This one’s tricky. You’ve probably picked that song because you’ve practiced it a hundred times/it reminds you of your first love/you know you’ll really shine at it and you’re all ready to show everyone what you’ve got.
The intro starts and you pick up the mic… and so does the fella next to you. He says, “Oh I love this song!” and proceeds to sing louder than you for every note, drowning you out and making you wish there was a button to mute him out.
We all know someone like this! So please, if someone else has chosen a song and unless they invite you to sing along with them, do not, I repeat, do not touch the other microphone.
4. People who come to karaoke to watch the music videos only.
This is the most WTF one! I’m lucky to not really have encountered that many, but I know of people who come into a karaoke room, pick a song, and when it starts up, leans back and says, “I just wanted to watch this video.”
Want to watch video go back and watch on Youtube la! Waste time and money for what hahahahaha.
What are the types of karaoke people you’ve encountered?
