And for everyone who thinks that pop songs were only meant to be sung by the pop stars who released them, there’s the karaoke muzzle. Plug the muzzled microphone in, and give your favorite karaoke lover the headphones that are included. She can croon (or scream) as loud as her heart desires, and you don’t have to listen to even one off-key note.
