Karaoke is Dead? Misconceptions about Karaoke.

Yeah, Nah! Karaoke is not dead, and it's still alive!

When I think of karaoke, I think of happiness.

  Talking about karaoke, what is the first idea and thought that comes up in your mind? Well for me, I think of happiness, and I really mean it. What can be more blissful than enjoying music and having fun together with your family and best friends? Singing karaoke can easily contribute to some of the greatest moments in life. Whether you’re showing off your vocals at a karaoke bar or battling to be the next singer in the karaoke box with friends, everyone is sharing the same joyful mood. Karaoke is like an ice-breaker, after a while of warm-ups, everybody would let their guard down and put down their serious mask. We will laugh together and nobody within the walls feels like a stranger anymore. The truth is Singing together has a magical way of making people feel connected, which also explains why the karaoke industry has been so successful over the past 30 years.

  Nevertheless, I’m aware that some of you might not share the same view and instead have a negative association with the word karaoke, why is this?

The following are some of the theories analysed by our team:

1. Outdated Karaoke Box & Boring Lyrics Video  

  Karaoke Lyrics Videos have been looking outdated for a couple of decades now. They have been painfully hurting our vision and karaoke experience with those blurry lyrics. Meanwhile, the cumbersome downloading steps, Karaoke DVDs and all the outdated karaoke box devices are just unacceptable in 2021.

2. Poor Sound Systems & Sound Quality

  Fluctuated and unstable sound systems can sometimes be really irritating, such as the fluctuated echos, sound interference or the rubbing distortion sound produced by poor sound systems, these poor karaoke sets would abrasively damage the mic. Sometimes the audio from an old karaoke box would sound exactly the same as somebody’s ringtone from the ’90s. It’s just painful to listen to.

3. Inconvenient & Troublesome Steps just for Selecting 1 Song

  Remember how we used to select songs in karaoke bars? First off we have to be super agile and quickly scan through those beer-soaked pages of songs. Then barely scribble down your song request on one tiny little piece of paper with a sticky pencil, and fight against the crowds to hand-deliver your request just to earn you a chance of singing performance. It’s really painful just to think about the disturbing steps for one song selection.

  This is how karaoke has looked like over the past 3 decades, so I can definitely relate to how you might be a little put off by all the song selecting procedures on repeat!

4. Limited Karaoke Venue Available

  Over the past few decades, home karaoke is not a common thing. Karaoke would only be available and common in public areas or bars. Therefore the karaoke service time limit, price and travelling time would cut down people’s desire for considering karaoke as their top entertainment choice. Some considerations and hesitations might be unavoidable if we want to sing karaoke.

5. Misconception of the Karaoke Industry

  With the limited karaoke venue and the standard working hours for the majority, karaoke is usually considered as night-time entertainment for grown-ups after work. For some, the feature of karaoke might not be as clean and pure as it firstly established, since some other external entertainments might be included in recent years, such as drinking, the features itself has been altered in the industry. In fact, this is a common misconception about the industry.

  It all depends on how you sing Karaoke. Since the Outbreak of COVID-19, many of our Daily Routines and Activities have changed. People are paying more attention to sanitation and hygiene, but also contributing to the fight against the COVID-19. We gradually stayed at home more often and having more home-based activities to help us kill time. This trend has transformed Karaoke from a consumption activity into an activity that brings your family together at home, no matter using a karaoke app on your smartphone or a karaoke machine with outdated lyrics videos and ear hurting instrumentals.
