Just a simple one this time.

Go to song or songs you sing at Karaoke?

For me its easy
Night Ranger - Sister Christian
3 Doors Down - Away from the Sun
Queen - Radio Ga Ga
Queen - Another One Bites The Dust
Queen - Dont Stop Me Now
Queen - Fat Bottom Girls
Weird Al - EBay
Weird Al - Polka Your Eyes Out!
Loverboy - Working For the Weekend
Level 42 - Something About You

Then I just do other random songs to see if things stick with the crowds. These are mostly songs I regular. I hate when people sing the same 3 to 4 songs every karaoke Sunday & it gets tiring. Thats kind of why I change it up. Would love to hear others songs!

Great list of songs! A whole lotta variety.
I just got my fiancé to do Jolene last night, one of my favorites! & love shack is a crowd favorite where I go. I do Jeremy sometimes but its not really a song that the crowd enjoys much. Someone sings Rebel Yell & sings just like Billy freakin Idol. Speaking of TMBG though, Ive always wanted to try Birdhouse in your Soul haha.

I need to find a karaoke hang-out that is near my house and doesn't involve copious amounts of alcohol that I don't drink.  Here are some songs I've had good karaoke experiences with in the past:

 

"I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" - The Proclaimers

"Brain Damage / Eclipse" - Pink Floyd (sang harmony to another guy's lead on this, and thought we did a pretty good job)

"Addicted to Love" - Robert Palmer

"You May Be Right" - Billy Joel

"Friend like Me" - Robin Williams

I can't believe I forgot Africa & Hold The Line by Toto, I Want You by Savage Garden and Karma Chameleon by Culture Club. Basically guaranteed plays if it's a group of people playing here. 

 

 

Ricky Martin - She Bangs (with special attribution to William Hung)

 

 

I can't find this one on the database?

I don't think the question was Rock Band songs. I believe it was general Karaoke songs (you know, like in those crazy karaoke bars that are super hard to find anymore where i'm at), to which She Bangs will always be a go to. Wait a tick...why haven't I added this one to the database? hmmmm....

Twisted Sister - We're Not Gonna Take It

 

I played in a co-ed softball league for 5 years and there was a end of year party every year.

 

The first 3 years was at a bar that had karaoke and I had done this song once before and got a good reception so i decided to do it again.

 

I think it surprised a lot of people because i am a very quiet, introverted person usually but i kinda let loose when doing this.

 

It kinda turned into a yearly thing where people where expecting and waiting for me to do it.

 

Anyway - if you can stomach my singing here is a video of it from one of the years (bad quality sorry) - https://drive.google...o8KC3JMIXLjqEt3
