KARAOKE SINGING LEADS TO MORE DEATHS IN THE PHILIPPINES: COULD IT BE FRANK SINATRA’S ‘MY WAY?’

imageTACLOBAN, Leyte (The Adobo Chronicles) – Two men and a woman were shot dead by a soldier inside a videoke bar in Jaro, Leyte early Thursday morning, police said.

The victims were identified as Andres Cadapan, Joselito Sunico, and Lea Mae Jamito. The woman worked as a waitress in the bar. Another waitress, identified as Maria Fe Puasa, was also injured in the incident.

Based on police investigation, the incident occurred after the bar owner Alejandro Molabola reprimanded PFC Baltazar Nacion for singing too loud. Instead of listening to Molabola, Nacion mauled him, which led to a commotion after some of the other customers went after Nacion.

Nacion and another soldier escaped after the commotion. They later returned and Nacion allegedly fired at the customers and the two waitresses.

This is not the first time that people were killed in karaoke bars in the Philippines. In fact, police records show that there is one karaoke song that is considered the ‘deadliest’ of all: Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way.’ Is it because of the song’s lyrics, ‘the final curtain?’

The Adobo Chronicles, however, could not confirm whether the song that Nacion sang was ‘My Way.’

  1. Another My Way Killings?

    I remember my former English boss told me that, in their country, they use the song “My Way” at funerals, to honor a dead “successful” person. And I said, “here in the Philippines, the song will cause you a funeral.” Hehehe
