Manila bans Karaoke after complaints from angry parents trying to home school their children.
Manila. Philippines the Manila city government has banned video key and Karaoke sessions in order to prevent loud noises that will distract students that are attending online classes. Mayor Iskoe Marino. Signed an ordinance which prohibits the use of Karaoke and machines as well as other sound producing devices Monday to Saturday, from seven am to five pm Marino said he approved the ordinance in response to some complaints of parents and students whose online classes were disrupted by the daily noise how much karaoke is going on in. Manila crazy Merano said he has received a lot of complaints from parents of students who were distracted by specifically neighbors using Karaoke machines since classes and public schools opened on Monday. I’m wondering does every household just have a karaoke machine? Sounds like a fascinating city right here I. Mean I love Karaoke so much and any culture that practices Karaoke dealing lunch is A culture. That’s pretty cool in my book I, feel bad for the kids of course, trying to get an education but man how dope is it to just be in a city that sings Karaoke all damn day I’d imagine there a drunk community as well. But I don’t WanNa, make any judgments here I’ve never been. It says here under the ordinance first time Karaoke violators will be fined. One thousand P I don’t know what that is. Oh. Just look that up. It’s a Philippine peso. I didn’t know they went by pesos as well and the conversion rate for USD I apologize for you Canadians and Europeans that listen to the show It is about ten USD to about five hundred Filipino pesos. So this is like twenty bucks is the fine for a first time violators of the daytime Kariuki. So the kids can get some work done ordinance. Second time offenders will receive a two thousand peso fine third time offenders three thousand pesos, anything more than that. They put you in a Filipino prison where you can sing Karaoke with the guards I’m just kidding that isn’t happening. Now. The article doesn’t say this, but I’m just so damned curious about. Karaoke in the Philippines. Is this just a result of the pandemic in many people being out of work that they’re singing karaoke in their home during the day or is this just a normal custom to just? Belt out some tunes in the middle of the afternoon with your neighbors. Now I do recall covering a story a number of years ago about the my way killings, this is a social phenomenon in the Philippines referring to a number of fatal disputes which have come about because of the way that people try to sing the song my way by Frank Sinatra in Karaoke bars in the Philippines. number of killings by people who were just displeased with the performance of the song. Apparently, this song is so precious to the Philippine community that if you if you butcher at Karaoke, you can be killed crazy, right Now attention to these infamous my way killings peaked on May Twenty, ninth two, thousand seven when a twenty, nine year old Karaoke. Singapore’s actually shot dead by security guard at a bar in San Mateo. The guard had complained that the young man’s rendition of my way was so off key. And that the man refused to stop singing and it prompted him to pull out a thirty eight caliber caliber pistol in shoot. The man dead right there in the Karaoke bar. Crazy. Now. A quick search of Popular Karaoke songs in the Philippines brings up. Some songs that you might recognize thinking out loud by Shirin. Living on a prayer, the classic by Bon Jovi. Without you Mariah Carey I will always love you Whitney Houston while they really try to sing difficult tunes I wouldn’t try to sing such hard tunes in a country that will shoot for being off key like in you know if you’re trying to go mariah Carey or Whitney Houston or beyond say in the Philippines I think you’re taking a big risk here.
Oh. Here’s one through the fire by shock Akon. Oh, I love that track. Wow. They got some good tastes that’s some old school rb. I. Can really get behind Bohemian rhapsody sung by Queen. Dancing Queen Abba another big time favorite in the Philippines apparently, and let’s go to the last page here. We have. Total eclipse of the heart I do like that. By Bonnie, Tyler I will survive by Gloria Gaynor at number two and the number one song. Of course, it says, of course, it says my way by Frank Sinatra. Now, it doesn’t say the history behind why this song my way is so damn popular in the Philippines I can only guess but I love that it is I just love that because I man I’m crazy about Frank Sinatra and An, and this is one of my faves I’ve done this song in Karaoke. If I would dare to it in the Philippines though.
