I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll – Joan Jett & The Blackhearts
Though it isn’t the original, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts’ rendition of this song is still our favorite! If you sing this, you’re in good company. Pop princess Britney Spears did the same thing in 2002’s Crossroads!
Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen
You don’t have to be a fan to enjoy Bohemian Rhapsody. The only thing that’s more fun than singing it in the shower is "performing" it on karaoke night! In fact, the more friends who sing along, the more fun it is!
Common People – Pulp
Is it even possible not to love Pulp? Though we prefer Bar Italia, Common People makes for the ultimate karaoke experience! What’s better? You don’t need to be a good singer to get the song right. In fact, you can get by without singing at all!
Girls Just Want to Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper
Let’s face it. Cyndi Lauper’s Girls Just Want to Have Fun is the perfect song to sing on girls’ night out! So gather up your best friends and prepare to sing your heart out, because this isn’t a song you can just mumble along to!
Dancing In the Street – David Bowie & Mick Jagger
If you’ve watched (and been baffled by) the Dancing In the Street video, you’re not alone. And that’s exactly why singing this song is a great idea. After all, it’s reminiscent of all those embarrassing videos you recorded when you had one too many drinks!
Jump – Van Halen
Jump is, without a doubt, our favorite Van Halen song to karaoke to. The synth, the energy and the fact that everyone loves this song will make you a hit on the stage! So if you can’t pick a song, you might as well jump!
Livin’ on a Prayer – Bon Jovi
A list of karaoke songs isn’t complete without Bon Jovi, is it? And what better choice than an all-time favorite tune! Even if you’ve never voluntarily listened to a Bon Jovi song, your ability to retain lyrics might surprise you!
Buddy Holly – Weezer
We love Buddy Holly, but we wouldn’t necessarily want to karaoke to one of his songs. Fortunately, Weezer’s got us covered. Named after the musical maestro, this track will make you a hit on karaoke night, while taking you down memory lane!
Girls & Boys – Blur
Girls who like boys who like boys who are girls who like girls… Or was it boys? We forgot, and that’s half of the song’s appeal! The chances of you getting this Britpop anthem right are low. The chances of you and everyone present having a blast? Very, very high.
Somebody Told Me – The Killers
Much like Girls & Boys, Somebody Told Me might confuse you if you’ve had more than two drinks. But that’s exactly what makes it so much fun to sing! If you’re feeling especially cheeky, you can sing the lyrics to Somebody Sold Me instead!
Now that you’ve got your karaoke set-list, it’s time to book your tickets to TGIOF – A weekend of beer, music and a whole lot of fun!
