Karaoke Then and The Future

Mickey | Shopping | Monday, December 27th, 2010

There are some people who claim that they will never try karaoke in their lifetime.  They look at it as a ridiculous hobby and wonder openly why anyone would subject themselves to such embarrassment.  Karaoke certainly inspires different opinions from varying people, and there will probably never be a general consensus about its place in the entertainment world.  But one thing is clear, karaoke has managed to survive despite numerous challenges and a rocky start.  When karaoke was brought to North America and many years ago most people thought it was a fad that would fade into obscurity within several years.  The idea seemed so foreign and it didn’t help that it was so heavily associated with another culture you.  But with time people discover that karaoke could be fun and American at the same time.  All it took was a few brave souls to try it, and manufacturers to produce machines and music that made everything more convenient.

These days it’s not uncommon to see a home karaoke machine sitting in someone’s living room.  They are becoming part of our culture and there are many people who enjoyed this hobby on a regular basis.  In fact, there are some people who take karaoke so seriously that they have developed their own subculture and hierarchy within karaoke bars.  There are people who practice on their karaoke system each and every day so that they can dazzle the other people on any given night.  There are also many karaoke machines that provide great features that were unimaginable just a few short years ago. 

These days you can download songs off of the Internet and play them directly on your karaoke machine, thereby eliminating the need to buy a whole library of CDs.  You can also share your performances by recording them and uploading onto the internet.  People may still laugh and giggle when they think about karaoke, but it doesn’t really matter when you are having the time of your life singing your favourite song in front of a group of people.
