The word karaoke comes from the Japanese words ‘kara’ meaning ’empty’ and ‘oke’ meaning ‘orchestra’. It first became popular in English in 1979



Karaoke is a Japanese word that refers to a performance in which a person sings along with recorded music. It’s a popular form of entertainment at restaurants and clubs: amateur singers choose their favourite well-known song to sing and then perform it for the crowd.


Robert Burns – Last may braw wooer

Last May a braw wooer cam’ down the lang glenAnd sair wi’ his love he did deave meI said there was naethin’ I hated like menThe deuce gae wi’ him to believe me, believe meThe deuce gae wi’ him to believe me
He spak o’ the darts in my bonnie blue eenAnd vowed for my love he was diein’I said he might die when he wanted for JeanThe Lord forgie me for liein’, for liein’The Lord forgie me for liein’
A weel-stocket mailin, himsel for the lairdAnd marriage off hand were his proffersI never loot on that I kenned it, or caredBut thought I might hae waur offers, waur offersBut thought I might hae waur offers
But what wad ye think? In a fortnight or less(The De’il tak his taste to gae near her!)He up the Gate-Slack to my black cousin Bess!Guess ye how the jad! I could bear her, bear herGuess ye how the jad! I could bear her
But a’ the niest week, as I petted wi’ careI gaed to the tryste o’ DalgarnockAnd wha but my fine fickle lover was there?I glower’d as I’d seen a warlock, a warlockI glower’d as I’d seen a warlock
But owre my left shouther I gied him a blinkLest neebours might say I was saucyMy wooer he capered as he’d been in drinkAnd vowed I was his dear lassie, dear lassieAnd vowed I was his dear lassie
I spiered for my cousin fu’ couthy and sweetGin she had recovered her hear’n?And how her new shoon fit her auld shackled feet?But heavens! How he fell a’swearin’, a’swearin’But heavens! How he fell a’swearin’
He begged, for gudesake, I wad be his wifeOr else I wad kill him wi’ sorrowSo e’en to preserve the poor body in lifeI think I maun wed him tomorrow, tomorrowI think I maun wed him tomorrow

5 Tips for Singing Karaoke

Here are some other things to keep in mind about how to have a successful karaoke night:

Warm up your voice before singing so you can really hit those high notes! Follow along with this quick video on vocal warm ups for singers.
Look confident. Start with a smile and with your feet planted shoulder width apart. Make no apologies for being on that stage!
Pick a song you really know so you’re not always having to look at the lyrics on the screen. Don’t forget you have an audience that wants you to sing to them!
Use good vocal technique. Breathe low, and keep your sound placed in your mask rather than shouting into the microphone.
Practice at home! YouTube has many excellent channels, such as KaraFun, that can help you practice.
