Default Top 10 Karaoke Songs

Everybody loves karaoke! Whether or not you need an alcoholic beverage first, or already have your song picked in the car. Singing karaoke is as natural as leaving cookies out for Santa Claus. Although first invented in Japan, it didn’t take long for the entire world to catch on. Maybe it’s because deep down everyone wants to be a music star- to be on MTV and have a thousand adoring fans scream when you hit the stage. It could be argued karaoke was first invented in the shower. Before cars were invented and a person bathed themselves in a creek of water. We’ve seen it in cartoons. The beautiful princess searching for her prince who sings a love song in the pond. Or maybe during chores? Wherever it first happened, people love to sing! Naturally certain songs have become more popular than others. Below you will find the top 10 most common karaoke covers.

10. “There’s A Tear In My Beer” by Hank Williams Jr

This is a very common karaoke song for the simple fact a beer is involved. Sing this song at any local watering hole and chances are everyone in the place will raise their beer in the air. More than likely they will be singing along with you, too! “There’s a tear in my beer ’cause I’m crying for you dear!” Who wouldn’t want to join in on the fun?! Plus you can’t go wrong with any kind of love song. Drunk people love nothing more than singing songs that they can somehow relate to in their real life. Hank Williams of course being a huge country star and father to many other Williams singers.

9. “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen

Now this is a great song to karaoke! When choosing a good cover to sing ideally you want a song with changes. Something entertaining that jumps around musically. This song starts out very slow and wraps up very fast. It’s perfect! Songs that keep the same tempo the entire time can get boring and draw attention to just how bad your singing s****s are. Pick this song and half way through everyone in the place will be too wrapped up with trying to remember the lyrics themselves to even notice how terrible you are! “Bohemian Rhapsody” was written by the late Freddie Mercury in 1975. Unfortunately Freddie passed away from complications brought on by AIDS in 1991. What better way to honor a great musician than ******ing one of his best songs ever!

8. “Summer Nights” by Olivia Newton John and John Travolta

This one is a bit more complicated as you need both a man and woman, but if you can find a partner this one’s great. While most men might not know the words by heart, you can guarantee the girls will! This song became popular from the movie Grease in 1978. With other famous songs like “Sandra Dee” and “Greased Lightning”, you can’t go wrong with “Summer Love”. Plus it becomes much easier to stand on stage and sing with someone with you. The song was actually written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, but best-known from Olivia and John. Jacobs and Casey were in a band together called “DDT & the Dynamiters.” If you’re a big fan of “Summer Nights”, you might want to check them out.

7. “Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Tyler

This one is mainly for the girls, but no doubt a favorite. Written by Jim Steinman and performed by Bonnie Tyler in 1983. Total Eclipse of the Heart is a popular karaoke cover coast to coast. Just about everyone in the world has heard this song and more than likely has seen someone sing it wherever there is karaoke happening. Bonnie Tyler first became famous in 1976 from a song called “Lost In France” and then became a huge world-wide music star with Total Eclipse of the Heart. While you may not know what this song is actually about, you’ll recognize it the second you hear “turn around.”

6. “YMCA” by The Village People

For obvious reasons this song is a favorite. Any time you’ve been drinking and you get to act out anything, you’re happy! First becoming popular within gay culture this song quickly became a hit in every circle. You can’t help but love a song that lets you form your arms into a letter. That and the fact you can even dress the part! The characters are a police officer, construction worker, cowboy, Indian chief, and a military man or biker. Walk up on stage wearing any of these six costumes and the crowd will lose their mind. Get the whole gang together and you could possibly start charging for tickets!
