Editor’s note

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Inbox -

We are all singers – of some sort. We sing in the car while we’re stuck in traf­fic. We sing in the shower. We sing while we’re run­ning on the tread­mill, ear­phones plugged in. We even sing in con­certs along with the artists. It’s not that we like to hear our own voice (which, ad­mit­tedly, some of us do), but be­cause songs can cap­ture an emo­tion, a thought or an ideal bet­ter than words. And it’s up­lift­ing to be able to share those mo­ments in a group. The fun part is, stay­ing on pitch is the least of your con­cerns.

It’s the same with danc­ing re­ally – but more so be­cause danc­ing lets us es­cape mo­men­tar­ily from the world out­side and just con­cen­trate on the beat and live in that happy mo­ment.

This is­sue is ded­i­cated to these two favourite pas­times of ours. We’ll tell you where to en­joy the best karaoke ex­pe­ri­ence in the city: We have tested seven top karaoke joints in the city, and we have put to­gether a list of the 50 best songs to, erm, butcher. And if that’s not enough, we’ll also tell you where you can spend the rest of the night danc­ing at some of the best bars and clubs in town.

There’s noth­ing wrong with tak­ing a break from our usual chores and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. Live a lit­tle. Go do the things that make you happy, so that we can recharge and then go back to do­ing what we need to do.
