Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Everybody thinks about being famous, but most of us will never know what it’s like to actually be in the spotlight. However, karaoke lets everybody pretend to be a famous singer.

Karaoke is a carefree way for anybody to sing his or her favorite tune, without needing much talent. One simply needs to choose a song that they like, and sing along. It’s that easy!

Karaoke is not a place only to sing along with songs. It’s more like a social place for young people to hang out like bars. You can drink, have some snacks, play fun games and dance with the music too. The best part is the room seperate the strangers, it’s carefree and relax if you are familar most the people in the room. it’s kind like a small party.

I don’t know if we got karaoke here, but even if we have it, I’ll never get there, unless of course I’m going to be among the audience :D


The kitchen is my own Karaoke. I often get my mobile on my favourite classic songs and start belting out while I’m washing dishes :D

I’m not into karaoke. But sometimes I sing along the most traditional and pop songs especially when I am in the kitchen.

I prefer singing in the shower rather than singing karaoke. It usually create a pleasant acoustic environment and It doesn’t matter if you’re good or bad at singing, it will sound nice when you sing it in the bath (all thanks to the reflections).

I don`t see myself  as a live performer in a karaoke sing along session. It might happen that instead of belting out a tune i would rather  stutter  a beautiful lyric. jejejejejeje. But, let me get this straight , if  i am pressed to take the center stage i would sing a Bob Dylan`s song… “Blowin´ in the wind ”

I don’t like it when some guys tread the boards and try to make fun of themselves, especially when they consider themselves as the funniest and cutest guy in the world and finally leave the stage as drunk as sailors (sorry if I sounded a little rude)


I really can’t stand it when I take a cab and the taxi driver suppose that he got some talents and keep singing along with every single songs that his car audio player plays.

Karaoke is one of my distractions, especially when I feel stressed out. You might find it embarrasing to sing in front of people, but once you sing a couple of songs, you’ll feel refreshed. It’s also fun to sing a song with friends together.
