Wikipedia: Karaoke
Karaoke /ˌkæriˈoʊki/ or /ˌkærəˈoʊki/ Japanese: [kaɾaꜜoke] カラオケ (clipped compound of Japanese kara 空 “empty” and ōkesutora オーケストラ “orchestra"), is a form of interactive entertainment or video game developed in Japan in which an amateur singer sings along with recorded music (a music video) using a microphone. The music is typically an instrumental version of a well-known popular song. Lyrics are usually displayed on a video screen, along with a moving symbol, changing color, or music video images, to guide the singer. In several Asian countries such as China, Cambodia or the Philippines, a karaoke box is called a KTV. The global karaoke market has been estimated to be worth nearly $10 billion.

Wikipedia: Curry
Curry (/ˈkʌri/, plural curries) is an umbrella term referring to a number of dishes originating in the cuisine of the Indian subcontinent. The common feature is the use of complex combinations of spices or herbs, usually including fresh or dried hot chillies. The use of the term is generally limited to dishes prepared in a sauce. Curry dishes prepared in the southern states of India may be spiced with leaves from the curry tree.

I was at an Indian restaurant last night when the waiter came over and said,"Curry ok sir”?
I said ‘ok one song then fuck off.’.

7 May 2017, The Sun (London, UK), “Burger me, those are some views” by Tam Cowan, pg. 34:
ON Friday night, I was tucking into a chicken curry with chips at my local Chinese restaurant when waiter came up to our table.

“Curry OK?” he asked.

“Sure,” I replied. “Put me down for Delilah by Jones … “
