I wonder if there are any other karaoke fans on this forum?
It came to Finland several years ago, from Japan of course, and nowadays there's hardly any pub where karaoke is not sung twice or thrice a week. The selection of songs is enormous, I'm sure there are Israeli songs, too. And no wonder, since one of our most popular singers is a Jew (http://www.marionrung.com/english.html).
For instance in our local pub you can sometimes see recording artists and opera singers.
This is not a serious matter, as most of the things we discuss. But if you have any experience from karaoke, please let us know!
