And what’s wrong with living on a prayer??
I’d go with any Bon Jovi or ABBA song, like Mama Mia or Wanted Dead or Alive

Another good one would be “My Girl” .

Try this site. Click on “browse karaoke titles” on the side. You can listen to other peoples’ karaokes, as well as record your own. It’s very easy, fun, and a good way to have your voice heard.

Amazing Grace, I can sing of your love forever, above all, I can only imagine, only Jesus, ... and all the other Praise and Worship/Gospel songs.

“The Devil Went Down to Georgia” is always fun if done decently. It helps to have backup dancers for the instrumental hoe-down sections. Also, in this part of the world, “Thank God I’m a Country Boy” usually gets a lot of crowd love. Also, “Fat Bottomed Girls” by Queen makes for good times. And if you want melodrama, “Total Eclipse of the Heart”!

The Star-Spangled Banner

Because that is what people want to hear at the bar/pub while they are trying to get laid.

And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

My boxers are on the floor.

How ‘bout “Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith? That could be fun.

It’s Too Late by Carole King
What it Takes by Aerosmith (you can really wail on this)
Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow by The Shirelles
Respect by Aretha (you’d better be able to sing)
I Want to Know What Love Is by Foreigner
You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon
You Don’t Know Me by Ray Charles
The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson

am I the only one slightly concerned about mrs_dr_frank_n_furter one-sided preference of film/music? I wonder if she’s been exposed to anything but the one….

@wildflower: trust me I know I have a problem. In fact, the next time I go to my psyhologist (don’t know if that is spelled right(I’m not the best speller)) I’m going to see if there is anyway to lesson this obsession

@PnL: Sorry I was a little tried that day so I wasn’t paying attention to how I spelled everything.

It depends on what your range is and what type of crowd you’re singing it to!

Mrs_Dr_Frank_N_Furter's avatar

I have a 3 1/2 octive range. I’m a coloratura soprano (think that is how you spell it)
