The My Way Killings

In the Philippines a disproportionate number of people were killed during the singing of the song My Way by Frank Sinatra in karaoke bars. It got so bad that some bars removed it from their selections and people still refuse to sing it. Opinions differ over whether the possible connection is due to the coincidence that the song was simply frequently sung amid the nation’s karaoke bars where violence is common or to the aggressive lyrics of the song itself. The number of killings is reported to be between six and 12.
