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.
Last May a braw wooer cam’ down the lang glen And sair wi’ his love he did deave me I said there was naethin’ I hated like men The deuce gae wi’ him to believe me, believe me The deuce gae wi’ him to believe me
He spak o’ the darts in my bonnie blue een And vowed for my love he was diein’ I said he might die when he wanted for Jean The Lord forgie me for liein’, for liein’ The Lord forgie me for liein’
A weel-stocket mailin, himsel for the laird And marriage off hand were his proffers I never loot on that I kenned it, or cared But thought I might hae waur offers, waur offers But 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 her Guess ye how the jad! I could bear her
But a’ the niest week, as I petted wi’ care I gaed to the tryste o’ Dalgarnock And wha but my fine fickle lover was there? I glower’d as I’d seen a warlock, a warlock I glower’d as I’d seen a warlock
But owre my left shouther I gied him a blink Lest neebours might say I was saucy My wooer he capered as he’d been in drink And vowed I was his dear lassie, dear lassie And vowed I was his dear lassie
I spiered for my cousin fu’ couthy and sweet Gin 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 wife Or else I wad kill him wi’ sorrow So e’en to preserve the poor body in life I think I maun wed him tomorrow, tomorrow I 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.
