Murder over a songPosted Friday, February 12, 2010, at 12:56 PM
Probably most of us have one song that just gets on our nerves.
For me, it would be some of the softer songs from the 1970s. I look back at my high school years and realize some of the music of that period, especially the mid- and late-1970s, was horrible. You had a choice of soft and mellow OR disco. The 1960s-early 1970s and early 1980s on were/are much better musically.
But, supposedly for some people in the Philippines, Frank Sinatra's "My Way" is not their way.
It may or may not be a so-called "urban legend," but The New York Times has reported that karaoke singers are being killed for attempting to croon the Paul Anka-written song.
Read here and come to your own conclusion. You news junkies can find some food for thought within this as well.
I'm leaning against believing this.
Hopefully none of you would kill over a song. But which songs can you simply not tolerate?
