Here's the Plot of Your Next Karaoke Serial Killer Novel

Sinatra Song Often Strikes Deadly Chord - NYTimes.com: "The authorities do not know exactly how many people have been killed warbling “My Way” in karaoke bars over the years in the Philippines, or how many fatal fights it has fueled. But the news media have recorded at least half a dozen victims in the past decade and includes them in a subcategory of crime dubbed the “My Way Killings.”"

    Understandable. I like Sinatra but everytime I hear that song I feel like killing someone-especially Paul Anka who wrote it.

    Karaoke-related killings are not limited to the Philippines. In the past two years alone, a Malaysian man was fatally stabbed for hogging the microphone at a bar and a Thai man killed eight of his neighbors in a rage after they sang John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”

    Now that I can understand.
