The power of music

We all know that music brings different emotions within us. When we hear music we seem to experience different feelings; music affects our perceptions and at the same time music generates behavioral patterns within us. We can feel peaceful, relaxed, excited, bored or invigorated when we hear music. No one is completely neutral to music. Music is a very powerful means of communication and can persuade us to do things. Music is used in therapy as a way to reach patients. Studies have also found that music can help children learn better.

Where did Karaoke come from?

Karaoke, a Japanese term means "empty orchestra". In Japan karaoke bars are for both pleasure and business. Singing for a client to a bar can mean the difference between getting a contract or not. Not so in the United States. In the United States the only thing you may lose when going to a karaoke bar is your inhibitions.

Why did Karaoke become so popular?

According to Marko Majanovic:

"There's an unmatched factor of interaction in karaoke. Anyone can just pop in a CD of their favorite band and listen to it in the car, but with karaoke you actually get the chance to sing the songs yourself."

" People do it for the rush. It's like being a rock star for 15 minutes. Everyone is cheering for you. Sometimes the worse you are, the better you are." Brady Cane - Karaoke DJ

According to Elisabeth Blance, manager of a bar " Karaoke gives people a sense of camaraderie, it helps break the ice, make friends - everyone knows everyone by the end of the night." According to her "alcohol plays a part in lubing the karaoke machine... Everyone wants the mike after a couple of drinks."

" Deep down everyone wants to get down on stage and perform. People are slow to start singing. The first two hours no one signs till the first fool comes up, and then everyone can't get enough of it."

" Karaoke is a form of entertainment that is here to stay"
