Killer Karaoke Songs of 2017

Just when you bid 2017 goodbye, many of its songs continue to hum in your ears like the year hasn’t even ended yet. We at Mac’s Tavern and Grill are proud to say that we keep our music up to date. You can count on us to play your jam, regardless when it was released.

In fact, here are some of the best 2017 pop songs that you can sing to on your next karaoke visit.

“New Rules” by Dua Lipa – New British sensation Dua Lipa took the world by storm with her debut single “New Rules.” The upbeat melody, scornful lyrics, and overall infectious beat can definitely get your audience up and cheer you on.

“Want You Back” by Haim – Many people can relate to a certain post-breakup phase when one party is angry at the other, but still has the desire to have them back. Haim perfectly encapsulated this feeling with a seemingly conversational intro, snappy choruses, and smooth rhythm.

“Bodak Yellow” by Cardi B – Fair warning: This song does not have the most wholesome or family-oriented lyrics. What is awesome about this hip hop masterpiece is Cardi B’s incredibly powerful chops that would make any head nod. This is the first female rap song that ranked No.1 since 1998.

“Despacito” by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Beieber – Truth be told, we don’t understand the lyrics of this Latin pop song, but there is something fun about singing and dancing to the fine guitars and smooth voices. We recommend the version with Justin Beiber for more English lyrics in the song.

“24K Magic” and “That’s What I like” by Bruno Mars – Bruno Mars dug deep and came out with a lot of songs resonating the 80’s. These songs are part of an entire album that might send you or your parents down memory lane. There’s swagger, funk, and a lot of nostalgia — all the makings of great karaoke songs.

“Shape of You,” “Galway Girl,” and “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran – Need something modern to woo a girl? These ballads from Ed Sheeran cannot be more perfect.

“Hard Times” by Paramore – This colorful and upbeat song is another tribute to the 80’s as well as a great anthem to those who fell down in 2017. This refreshingly infectious pop song can be your next pick-me-up after a tough week.
