See also: Music Minus One?[edit]

I've known about Music Minus One for a long time, longer than I've known about karaoke. I even owned some MMO recordings in my youth. To me, MMO:instrument :: karaoke:voice. They are both prerecorded musical backgrounds with one major missing element. Also, MMO (established in 1950) predates karaoke by more than a decade. I also noted the big controversy above about Audiosyntrac. I think that MMO belongs in the "See also" list and would like to see Music Minus One added there in the Main article but thought I'd start with the suggestion here. Disclaimer: I have nothing to do with MMO other than to have owned some MMO records many years ago. AdderUser (talk) 08:01, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

"Wherever Filipinos go, they...."[edit]

"Wherever Filipinos go, they bring with them their favorite music and devices". Can such a blanket statement about a whole nation be taken seriously? There are upwards of 100 million people in the Philippines, and it's a safe bet that many of those millions simply can't afford "their favorite music and devices", and that some can't even afford to "go" anywhere at all. So what point is the writer trying to make here? It's a bit like saying that Thais and Cambodians "are always smiling", or that Africans "have rhythm in their blood" - and that makes it a racial (dare I say racist?) stereotype. Perhaps it's only meant as a joke (like "Italians ignore traffic lights as a matter of national honour") - but what's something like that doing in a Wikipedia article?213.127.210.95 (talk) 15:12, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Like most of the article, it's unsourced commentary that someone added, and someone else – you, perhaps – could easily remove. Ghmyrtle (talk) 22:25, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
