Any real man knows that he is nothing if he does not karaoke. In Japan, karaoke skills are held above the ability to conceive children. But it isn't just about the ability to sing in key or even know the correct words that creates a Karaoke star, it's about the atmosphere you create as a performer. In the end it all comes down to song selection: pick the wrong song and the crowd will turn on you, pick the right song and the crowd will be singing along so loudly that your horrible voice will be barely audible. Now, in Japan Karaoke's spiritual homeland some of the more popular songs are "Haroki Heroki," "Yamagatu Takaowa" Kinjitsu?" and "Stacey's Mom." Anybody can sing the standard Japanese songbook, but it's your ability to pick the right English language songs that will make you a god among men in this country or "Naga Kikoki." With my guidance you'll have the party pumping in no time. The most important thing when picking a Karaoke song is tempo. Nobody wants to listen to a slow song, especially one that is being sung poorly.
Even worse is when someone picks a slow song and they're actually a decent singer. Then you don't even have the option of laughing at how terribly they sing are instead forced to sit through five minutes of what sounds like a Celine Dion tribute album. Make sure you pick a song that will pump the party full of life instead of making the party depressed, withdrawn and contemplating just, ya know, ending it all"
