Karaoke wine labels are pitch-perfect

Wine has always been helpful in encouraging people to take to the stage for a bit of karaoke, but with these labels they might actually be able to sing in tune.

The labels on house wines at a restaurant in Plymouth, England, are allowing the bottles to double-up as tuning forks for wannabe singing sensations.

Each label has lines drawn at different levels of the wine, so when the drinker reaches the mark on the bottle and gives it a tap they hear the note they need to start their rendition of its corresponding karaoke classic.

The songs include such fan-favourites as Abba’s Dancing Queen and Don McLean’s American Pie.

The restaurant is situated at the Plymouth Arts Centre, which specially commissioned the labels from a local artistic duo, reports the Plymouth Herald. 

“It’s a bit of fun,” said Centre spokesperson Kate Foster. “It’s the second time we’ve asked artists to design labels.

“The idea is to link what we do: art, film and food,” she continued.

Bosses at the centre say the series helps support local artists and the latest effort is sure drinkers to burst into song.

“We like to imagine (they) could be tempted to sing a tune, or may find themselves accidentally having one stuck in their head,” said executive director Kate Sparshatt.
