Karaoke is probably one of the most popular Japanese exports. It started as a pastime in Japan. But now it seems every large city in the world has at least one Karaoke bar. These joints are very popular too. On any given day you can see them packed with people who want to sing their hearts out. Do you know what the term means? It literally means empty orchestra in English. It’s accurate since there really is no orchestra or band to accompany the singer. There’s only pre-recorded music. Karaoke means different things to different people. It can be a stress reliever, a hobby, a way to party.
Many people go to karaoke bars for the same reason they go to bars. They want to have a good time and maybe have a few drinks with friends. It can be part of a planned night out among friends or it can also be a way for office mates to bond together. Some businessmen also take their guests to karaoke bars to entertain them. Since most karaoke bars offer food too, many people go to these bars to eat dinner or to have a snack. It can be an alternative activity to watching a show or a concert or going to a nightclub.
Karaoke bars are popular because many people like to sing. Even shy individuals become brave when they hear the first notes of their favorite song playing. Not everyone can become a professional singer but karaoke bars can fulfill the dreams of many people to sing in front of an audience. So these bars become a medium to realize people’s fantasies. For a night, they can sing and shout their hearts out. Karaoke bars are also a good way to reminisce about the good old days. People can go there and sing old songs that remind them of their glory days.
