    "My Way" Killings

    If you go to a karaoke bar in the Phillipines, DO NOT choose to sing "My Way"!

    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.” The killings have produced urban legends about the song and left Filipinos groping for answers. Are the killings the natural byproduct of the country’s culture of violence, drinking and machismo? Or is there something inherently sinister in the song?

    Truly bizarre!!

    I've never seen a fight break out over karaoke & I've been around it a lot -- here & in Mexico.

    I'll certainly never think of it the same again.

    Thanks for posting, Steadfast.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Patsy: Strange

    Sinatra: Gone, RIP.

    What else is left?

    People really get wiggy over this song?

    'My way' is getting wiggy over someone doing 'the wave' - in a ball park.
