1 – Love Shack
Artist: The B-52s
Love Shack is a party anthem if ever there were one. The entire song is about a raucous party in and of itself, and it’s full of amazing vocal melodies and harmonies that will serve you well either as a solo act or in a larger karaoke group.
2 – It’s The End Of The World As We Know It
This song is rather famous for its rapid fire lyrics in the verses, and merely attempting to pull them off can be great fun. Even if you happen to fail, you’ll be having the time of your life.
3 – 1999
The late great Prince turned out many hits in his lifetime, and 1999 is easily one of the most uplifting. This track is great for New Year’s Eve karaoke parties in particular, no matter how much more outdated the titular year becomes.
4 – I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll
Artist: Joan Jett
The chorus to this song is the very definition of anthemic. The verses also ooze attitude and even a little sexiness on top of it all. Joan Jett is awesome, and you’ll feel equally awesome singing along!
5 – Fantasy
Artist: Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey is known for her impressive vocal range. This song may be her biggest hit, with a truly upbeat vibe and some gorgeously memorable melodies woven over top a completely addictive beat.
6 – Heart Of Glass
This famous disco and new wave crossover will win a room of people over as soon as the first verse’s vocal hook kicks in.
7 – Sabotage
Artist: The Beastie Boys
If you want to really get a crowd going, The Beastie Boys’ mid-90s hardcore punk anthem will do the trick every time.
8 – When I Come Around
Artist: Green Day
When it comes to pop punk, Green Day will always be the modern day kings. When I Come Around may well be the most accessible of their many hits, and everyone in the room is sure to be singing along by the chorus.
9 – Hella Good
Artist: No Doubt
No Doubt is another band with many a hit under their belt, and Hella Good is as “feel good” as it gets.
10 – Amber
Finally, 311 by Amber is a laid back reggae rock hit that’s both fairly easy to sing and immensely catchy. No karaoke party is complete without it!
