The late 1990’s dance craze inspired a new meaning for the word “revolution”. To legions of fun loving movers and groovers, “revolution” was a noun that meant “a gadget offering extreme activity and excitement, and immeasurable enjoyment and relaxation.” This form of revolution also provided a great way to keep in shape. This was the Dance Revolution.

Karaoke bars are quite popular these days. People come here to hang out and have fun. The word “karaoke” is derived form a Japanese word and means “empty orchestra”. It started in Kansai, Japan, in 1984, and spread to worldwide popularity. Music of any popular song is taken but the voice of the singer is absent or reduced. So, anybody who is interested can sing along using a microphone, usually the lyrics are also displayed .Some restaurants also have adopted this concept and they either have their in house singer or sometimes even visitors can sing.
