There’s something about karaoke that is hard to beat. The adrenaline rush as you take the mic, the thrill of just being able to belt out your favourite tunes without judgement, the thrill when everyone else starts singing along. Yet there’s also nothing worse than picking a song that you think will go down well and instead, everyone stares blankly back at you. Instead of looks of joy, everyone looks awkward and bored and you wish the ground would swallow you up. Whether you’re singing at your next corporate event, summer party, Christmas party or teambuilding night, you want to be remembered for all the right reasons. Here we have put together five top karaoke songs that will really impress the room…
I Wanna Dance With Somebody - Whitney Houston
When it comes to entertainment ideas and lifting the roof of your next corporate event, Whitney Houston is always going to go down well. One of the greatest R&B pop hits of all time, it’s a song that everyone knows the lyrics to and that will soon have everyone joining in and enjoying themselves.
Dancing Queen - ABBA
A big part of karaoke hire is finding that song that makes everyone get up and throw themselves into the evening. After all, no Christmas party or karaoke night wants to be met with silence. Dancing Queen by Abba is a song that even the steadfast bah-humbugs will find themselves humming along and tapping their foot to. The most famous recording by the band, it’s a guaranteed karaoke success.
Summer Nights - Grease
If you’re looking to duet at your next karaoke night (or want to try and sing two different octaves) summer nights by Grease is an effortless choice. This late 70s classic is another highly popular karaoke choice thanks to its catchy lyrics and the fact everyone can easily get involved. Forget a rap battle, who’s down for a sing off?
Make You Feel My Love - Adele
If you’re looking to impress with a ballad that shows off your vocal range, why not sing a bit of Adele? A bold choice, this could show your office a whole new talent of yours and have them viewing you in an entirely new light! Whether it’s your Christmas do or a random party, it’s a song guaranteed to grab people’s attention and make them notice you. While not as boppy as some of the others, it could still encourage people to wave their arms in the air and get involved. It can also be a great way to wind down the evening to a bit of a slower pace!
Don’t Stop Believin’ - Journey
Another karaoke classic, Don’t Stop Believin’ has been a firm favourite for many years, particularly since Glee gave it a reboot back in 2009. This is a song that can show off your singing skills but is also one that everyone will want to sing along with too. It’s fun, lively and one of those songs where everyone will know all the words. Whether singing to open a party or get the mood lifted halfway through, it’s a fantastic choice!
