| Why Do We Like Karaoke
The first time I sang at a karaoke event, I observed that I could not wait to sing again. It didn't matter if there were flaws in my singing. Karaoke was exciting. I wondered why karaoke singing was something that many people enjoyed. This was an interesting question concerning the psychology of singing.
Although it may be clear what is karaoke, it is less clear about why people like karaoke. We may not be fully aware of why we like karaoke. Nonetheless, I wish to speculate on three possible reasons why we may enjoy karaoke.
Expression of a Dream
I believe the joy of karaoke has something to do with singing in front of an audience. I think it is an expression of a dream. As a kid, some of us may have dreamed of becoming a rock star. Karaoke may be a way of expressing this dream to some degree. We know it is not the same as being a rock star, but it may help us feel a little like a rock star. With karaoke, dreams may come true, at least in a very minor way.
Another possible reason why we may like karaoke is that it may allow us to express our personality. We can select songs that reflect our personality. Moreover, we can also sing the songs in a manner that reflects our unique personality.
A third reason we may like karaoke is that it allows us to express certain emotions while singing.
