Let's Get Loud: Your Ultimate Guide to KTV Bars and Videoke Party Rates in Manila

If we were to list the favorite pastimes of the Filipinos, singing karaoke would easily snag a spot in the Top 5 (eating, texting, social networking, and watching TV listed are the other four). This interactive machine-- usually a set of TV, microphone, and music player-- has become an icon in the Filipino culture. It’s now considered a household good and a quintessential entertainment for all kinds of occasions. Karaoke, or videoke to the younger ones, has bonded people together, launched careers, roused neighborhood disputes, and even allegedly instigated murders (that is, if the ‘My Way’ curse were to be believed).

While there’s no denying the karaoke’s popularity among Filipinos, not many of its users know about its controversial history. Karaoke (in Japanese: empty + orchestra) was said to be invented by Daisuke Inoue in 1971. However, the exclusive rights to the Karaoke Sing Along System is with Roberto del Rosario, a Filipino musician and inventor who got the patent in 1975. The two fought in a lawsuit; Del Rosario won. It wasn’t a total defeat for Inoue though. He was recognized by Time Magazine as one of the "Most Influential Asians of the Century" and was awarded the Ig Nobel Peace Prize in 2004 for his invention.

Karaoke's history may be foggy but one thing's clear: Pinoys love it. So for this week's Click List, we've rounded up the places where you can belt out your favorite tunes amidst cheering friends and family. Prepare your Most Requested Song lists, grab the microphone, and sing your heart out at Manila's most popular family KTV restaurants.
