Improve Open Mic Song Selection? xD
« on: September 13, 2010, 09:42:00 AM »
Hello there~ I was wondering if there's any way the list of open mic karaoke songs could be updated? xD

I visited the karaoke room this year and was hoping to find a buncha songs I wanted to sing, but there was like, NOTHING DX
I was especially disappointed to find that there weren't a lot of recent songs on there, and I'm just getting started.
There weren't any new anime OP/EDs, which is what really got me down, though I liked how there were some Korean songs on there lol, but even then,
there should've been a lot more >3<

Is there any way we can get a karaoke song list committee started? If so, I'd be the first in line, for the committee and in the karaoke room! xD

would be the Kumikyoku Nico Nico Douga medley, lol.

How do you get the songs for karaoke, anyways?

I know a way to get a bunch of anime karaoke tracks, but the methods are....erm, less then legal. ^^;

Of course, these day very few anime songs are released in the US so aside from buying them off Japanese iTunes or paying expensive import fees the only way to get them is to be illegal, but still. I dunno.

Every breath you take and every move you make, every bond you break, every step you take, I'LL BE WATCHING YOU.

Okay here's something that really made me upset. The covers on the karaoke song books were Vocaloid, but there was not a single vocaloid song in there. I will make a list of vocaloid songs that I think would be neat to have, all by Vocaloid.

-Magnet
-Meltdown
-Trick or Treat
-Matryoshka
-Canterella
-Honey Honey
-Spice
-Alice of Human Sacrifice
-Love is war
-Just be friends
-Can't I Even Dream
-Rolling girl
-Kokoro
-Kokoro Kiseki
-Worlds is Mine
-Gekokujou
-Daughter of evil

There are lots more but that is all I can think of. Vocaloids are insanely popular now, last year there were over 50 cosplays of them, we need this XD

well since i know that you guys (the karaoke ppl's) use the anime lyrics dot com site ~click here~
you guys should be pretty up to date. not sure why you aren't :/ cuz when i sang karaoke at kcon10 i srsly found about 5 or so songs that i knew. of course i had no trouble reading romanji (latin alphabet) so that was a good thing that you guys had.

but i asked the guy running the karaoke, and he said he got all the stuff off that site. if he really does, then there shouldn't be any problems. he should probably update it again.


just so you guys have a reference to some song lists here are some:

vocaloid song list: http://www.animelyrics.com/doujin/vocaloid

jpop/rock: http://www.animelyrics.com/jpop/

anime songs: http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/

hope that helps a bit

Every year I'm shocked by how few songs there are by Ayumi Hamasaki

Ayumi is to singing as Megumi Hayashibara is to voice acting in Japan (a.k.a the goddess of anime- cause she's in eevvrryything)

A couple of weeks ago this was brought up in a conversation with a few of my friends and i thought it'd be good to mention it here. It might be kind of nice to add in some English songs into the music selection, such as Disney songs.

Back at Asian Fest several weeks back, I actually was able to contribute a bunch of VOCALOID songs, as well as some Karaoke tracks from some other animes, like Bakemonogatari, Bungaku Shoujo, and a few others I can't remember off the top of my head and whatnot. I plan to be contributing a lot more before the con begins, so I can assure you guys that by con, there WILL be a lot of VOCALOID and probably selections from other animes as well. :]

Also, the books on what karaoke tracks we have at Open Mic Karaoke haven't been updated in a while (from what I'm told by someone else), so there is a chance that the karaoke track you're looking for might be available. If you don't find it in the karaoke book, try asking the people behind the table to see for sure if we have it. :] I know that I include lyrics with every song I contribute, so there is also a chance that we have lyrics as well.

Last year there wasn't any vocaloid songs and I personally was quite disappointed.
Some good vocaloid songs for karaoke are:
World is Mine: Rin version (although really any version would be great)
Cendrillon: Miku and Kaito
Kokoro: Rin
Toeto: Luka
Just be Friends: Luka
Fire Flower: Len
I wish they'd all just die: Kaito
Google it! : Luka and Gakupo

I would love to see musical songs like popular from wicked, songs from the lion king and other musical songs because not everyone knows a bunch of anime or japanese songs. This would just be more fun seeing anime characters singing these songs.

I just brought my MP3 player for songs I didn't think they would have (Hanaji from Maria Holic, Opening from Umineko and so on) so the song selection wasn't a big deal for me, but next year it'd be nice if there was a more recent lyric database.

This karaoke room was probably my favorite from any con I've been to so far.  It had a really nice setup for the lyrics screen like Sakuracon, but unlike Sakuracon there wasn't a huge wait and I was able to see a bunch of songs throughout the weekend.
