A karaoke night is a perfect place to showcase your amazing performance skills. Even if you’re not the best singer in the world, doing some karaoke is a great way to have some fun.
However, if you’re heading to a karaoke bar, you’re going to want to choose the right song to impress the audience and blow them all away. From crowd favourites to powerful ballads, these six karaoke songs will certainly impress the audience.
1. Stacy’s mom – Fountains of Wayne
This early 2000s song was a hit when it came out, and it’s certainly still a hit in karaoke bars today. Stacy’s Mom is one of the easier songs to sing, and almost everyone knows the lyrics. So, if you’re worried about hitting all the notes, don’t worry – the crowd will be singing along too.
2. Love shack – B-52s
This 80s track is oh-so groovy and is guaranteed to get the crowd going. When you haven’t got the crowd singing along with you, you can grab a partner and turn this killer song into a duet.
3. I want it that way – Backstreet Boys
Alright, there are a couple of Backstreet Boy songs that everyone knows, and this is one of them. If you want to belt your heart out but still have the audience sing along with you, then this is the song for you.
4. Build me up buttercup – The Foundations
Despite the words, this song’s upbeat, catchy tune gets everyone going. Even if you’re not the best singer, no one will really mind hearing you sing your heart out to this karaoke song.
5. Girl on fire – Alicia Keys
If you’re looking to impress with your superb vocals, this Alicia Keys song ticks all the boxes. If you’re bold enough to sing this song and hit all the notes, you’ll certainly be on fire (in a good way)!
6. Purple Rain – Prince
Warning: do not attempt to sing this song unless you know you can nail it. Seriously, we’re not joking – if you mess up this all-time favourite Prince song, you won’t live it down. So be sure to practice this one before performing it for an audience.
