A good karaoke performance is a combination of the right people, the right place, the right liquid courage, and of course, the right choice of song. If you’re worried about flipping through the list might take forever and you can’t decide on which tune will be a crowd pleaser, then here are some of the best karaoke songs you can consider.
“Stay,” Lisa Loeb
This 90s song is sweet, nostalgic, and most of all, easy to sing to. The lyrics and tune are practically conversational so there’s less room for mistakes here.
“500 Miles,” The Proclaimers
If “How I Met Your Mother” didn’t get you and your friends hooked on this song for a while, then try playing it in a karaoke bar. Its bouncy tune is easy to follow and you can effortlessly rile up others to sing along.
“It’s Gonna Be Me” or “Bye Bye,” Nsync
For a 90s to early 2000s kid, it’s pretty hard not to sing to Nsync, especially with Justin Timberlake’s curls and frills at the end of certain lines. There might even be dancing in the crowd.
“Party In The U.S.A” and “Wrecking Ball,” Miley Cyrus
Fortunately, Miley Cyrus’ vocals are not hard to reach and follow. Ladies can immediately jam to songs like “Party In The U.S.A” while her more recent hits like “Wrecking Ball” works for any gender.
“All The Small Things,” Blink-182
All the “na na na” in this song is perfect for bringing the house down.
“I Want It That Way” and “Everybody, ” Backstreet Boys
Let’s face it: many songs of boy bands like Backstreet Boys don’t make a lot of sense. Still, when you play “Everybody” in a karaoke bar, everybody can literally get up and sing and dance to it.
“Since U Been Gone,” Kelly Clarkson
The growing build-up of this song is just emancipating and empowering. Whether for the moving on blues or just cheering up friends, Kelly Clarkson’s 2004 hit is always a great pick.
“Hey Jude,” Yellow Submarine,” Yesterday,” You’ve Lost that Lovin Feelin,” The Beatles
The Beatles has a wide array of songs you can easily play and sing to in the karaoke. For instance, the catchy song “Hey Jude” is not only easy to remember, it also pulls a certain heartstring among friends that would make you all want to sing shoulder to shoulder with a beer in hand.
