Song : Hapuskanlah Ingatanku (Erase My Memories) by GEISHA
Music Video : www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQtYfV…

=> Karaoke – dirty little secret or Asia’s favorite pastime?

For Westerners it is sometimes difficult to understand Asia’s obsession with Karaoke. What’s so exciting about embarrassing yourself in front of your friends or even strangers with your non-existing singing skills?

Fortunately – Karaoke is more than that, it can be a favorite pastime or your dirty little secret.

Once you take your time to get the hang of it – you could have lots of pleasure and a great time enjoying yourself.

The popular Karaoke we know today derived from a Japanese form of adult entertainment, where half-drunken blokes or business partners sing along with recorded music using a microphone. Usually the voice of the original singer is removed and the lyrics of the song are displayed on a TV or screen. The lyrics change color depending on the position of the song, as a guide for the singer.

Most people don’t know that the original Japanese inventor of the Karaoke machine simply ‘forgot’ to patent this technology. Today Robert del Rosario, a business-savvy Filipino, holds the patents to the device, now commonly known as the ‘karaoke machine’.

Today, almost everywhere in Asia, Karaoke is very popular with youngsters and adults alike. From Taipei, Manila or Tokyo to Bangkok, Hong Kong to Hanoi or Jakarta – you can find a Karaoke (or KTV) joint in every town with more or less modern equipment, disco lights, public singing rooms or separate booths for more intimate group fun or for the shy and easily embarrassed.

And it’s now catching up with Caucasians as well, with new places mushrooming all over the Western Hemisphere.

Indonesia... just

Let it go, let it go
can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
turn my back and slam the door
I DON'T CARE what they're going to say
Let it go, let it go
the cold never bothered me anyway.

LOL sorry I had to do this.
