The Inventor of Karaoke Is Dead . . . Here Are the Best Karaoke Songs for People Who Can’t Sing

The inventor of karaoke has died.  He was a Japanese businessman named Shigeichi Negishi, and he lived to be 100 years old.

He invented the first karaoke machine in 1967, after one of his employees made fun of his singing voice.  It was originally called the SPARKO BOX.

Negishi never patented his invention, but his daughter says that never bothered him.  Quote, “He felt a lot of pride in seeing his idea evolve into a culture of having fun through song around the world.”

In his honor, someone did a survey and conducted some research to determine the 30 best karaoke songs for people who CAN’T SING.

Here are the Top 10:

1.  “Sweet Caroline”Neil Diamond

2.  “Livin’ on a Prayer”Bon Jovi

3.  “Don’t Stop Believin'”Journey

4.  “Love Shack”The B-52’s
