Some sang off-key and quite loud while others were a joy to listen to.
It was “Cafeteraoke” time Tuesday night at Mojo’s in North Newton, where Bethel College students sang karaoke to songs they’ve heard one too many times in the college cafeteria.
The idea for the night started out as a joke by members of the Bethel College Student Activities Committee — to sing karaoke to songs that have been played repeatedly in the cafeteria.
“We were just talking about events,” said Megan Siebert, committee member. “One thing we talked about — everyone hates the music in the cafeteria.”
One particular mixed CD has been played a great deal in the cafeteria.
“No one likes (the songs), especially hearing them day in and day out,” Siebert said. “... It was a motley mix of everything.”
The CD contained everything from Josh Groban to country to Keyshia.
Students sang a variety of songs Tuesday night, including the Journey song “Don’t Stop Believing,”  Taylor Swift’s “Love Story”,” “Summer Nights” from “Grease” and “Defying Gravity” from the musical “Wicked.”
A small group of students and some people who had attended The New Christy Minstrels concert at Bethel that evening listened and laughed.
Students who took part in the singing included, but were not limited to, Martin Olson, Kris Dubach, Nate Snyder, Brian Skinner, Renee Reimer, Megan Siebert, Allison Yoder and Aaron Tschetter.
