Things you just don't get - Page 420
yes to all. we were doing house parties for so long we covered the british new wave (depeche mode, the cure, tff, new order, icicle works, funboy3, blue zoo, abc...) to italian disco (giorgio moroder, den harrow, silver pozzoli) to stock/aitken/waterman music (rick astley, steve walsh, samantha fox, mel & kim) to early house and electonica (m/a/r/r/s, technotronic, klf)... shit I'm old!
Whenever I go, its to the korean karaoke places where you get a private room and it is pretty much a room full of people singing(and the one we usually go to has pretty decent pitchers of beer). Sure there are are only two microphones, but everybody is singing and nobody holds the mic close enough to their mouth to actually be heard over the speakers.
There are also many places where you can have very attractive young Korean women come sing with you. The services that don't involve prostitution (and literally just involve scantily clad young women coming to sing with you...you probably couldn't do anything with them...I mean you probably could, but it would be just as tough as picking up a girl working at a bar...she'll have dealt with it every night) are cheap. Maybe under a hundred.
Regardless, Korean karaoke is very social (with or without ordered women). As OTC in, you've got a private room with your friends and generally will have a good time. There is very little sitting around watching other people sing (and since the people aren't singing in front of a crowd but in front of friends, they are willing to be silly and/or go all out).
