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.

Top Killer Karaoke Songs Hard Not to Sing To

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.
