Do not sing this song at karaoke, it could mean life or death.

One of my dearest friends is a karaoke DJ, I used to be a karaoke DJ, I've sang karaoke and it happens at my local bar three times a week.

6 people have been killed singing THIS karaoke song

You always hear the same songs over and over again.

There's the person who sings Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" because they are stuck in the 90s and want to remind you of that terrible song and their terrible rapping skills.

"Sweet Caroline" is usually one of the last songs that the drunkest guy in the bar sings because well, every one else will sing it so loudly, drunk guy doesn't have to sing. This is the same for Journey's "Don't Stop Believing."

I asked Imaging Mike what songs he heard at karaoke last night and he said that the weird sleeveless guy sang Pink Floyd's "Money." Way to pick a song that doesn't have singing for like three minutes weird shirtless dude.

Although these songs may be the bane of our existence at any karaoke establishment, at least Frank Sinatra's "My Way" wasn't sung.

See, Frank's classic "My Way" is a killer according to The New York Times.

Six people since 2000 have been murdered after, or while singing that song!

According to Cosmopolitan magazine, one instance was in the Philippines:

In 2007, a man was performing the song in San Mateo in the Philippines when a security guard loudly informed the singer that he was off-key. When man continued to croon, the guard pulled out a .38 caliber pistol and shot the performer in the chest, killing him.


Now that is just crazy! Looks like I wont be singing Frank Sinatra's "My Way" any time soon.
