Boy, how many times has this crossed through your mind, when it came to John Denver?
John Denver karaoke sparks Thai killing spree
"A gunman in Thailand shot-dead eight neighbours, including his brother-in-law, after tiring of their karaoke versions of popular songs, including John Denver’s Country Roads.
A neighbour said that the karaoke group normally sang Thai pop and southern Thai ballads, but one particular western tune could be heard often - John Denver’s ‘Country Roads’.
Country Roads is a hugely popular song in south east Asia and the neighbour said the revellers had been singing it over and over again."
And how is this for irony;
In 2007, ten years after his death, John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High" was named Colorado's co-official song. It shares the honor with that old ode to the state, "Where the Columbines Grow".Yikes!
