GUEST,Lyle BS: Careful where you sing (21) Careful wher you sing 19 Nov 01

Just found this in the news, and knowing how creative this group can be, I thought there would be some insightful, humerous, creative responses. So I'll not try; I'll just listen to you all.


MANILA (Reuters) - One man was killed and another wounded when a brawl broke out in a Philippine karaoke bar over the quality of singing, a local newspaper reported on Monday.

A 54-year-old laborer died of a stab wound in a bar in northern Manila early on Sunday after a fight which began when a group of drinkers said the man with the microphone was singing out of tune, according to the Philippine Star.

The singer confronted the group and a fight ensued, according to the report. The dead man had been trying to put an end to the fight when he was stabbed in the chest, it added.

A 24-year-old garment worker is being treated in hospital for stab wounds, the report said.

Recent newspaper reports have said Philippine karaoke parlors have been removing the Frank Sinatra classic "My Way" from playlists because fights frequently broke out when the song was being sung.

Monday's report did not indicate which song was playing when the fight began
