Question about the use of "of" Here is an example: I like the way of expression of singing a new song of English . Is the use of "of" right? do you think there are too many ofs in a sentence ?

The sentence just doesn't make any sense. The amount of times you use 'of' doesn't actually change anything the way the sentence is right now because even if you removed them it still wouldn't make sense. Your use of 'of' is definitely not correct.

Too many ofs sounds werid and confused.

Yes, you could. Using one or two, or sometimes three in a sentence is still acceptable, but not too many, unless you're trying to be funny or get people confused.
