Some days are great, others are not...but no matter what twists and turns I encounter, you can be sure I'm going to write about it!

Karaoke S.O.S.

The beer is flowing.
The lighting is dim.
The music is blaring....

Karaoke style.

I always find myself paging through the song selections for what feels like HOURS...only to settle on songs I've sang a dozen times(+). My fail safes that aren't necessarily crowd pleasers (either because I suck at singing, because they're usually country tunes, or both of the previous...I digress). Ya know, Gretchen Wilson's Red Neck Woman and The Dixie Chicks's Some Days You Gotta Dance (honestly people...those are usually the ONLY TWO SONGS I WILL SING ATTEMPT TO SING).

On my way home a song comes on my radio and a lightbulb goes off in my head "THAT'S THE SONG I SHOULD'VE ATTEMPTED!!!!!! RAR!!!!!!!!!!!"

So, I ask you this...What are some classic, crowd pleasing karaoke tunes...and does such a thing actually exist? Give me some ideas peeps....puh-LEASE!


  1. Two words for you: Kelly Clarkson.

  2. Kelly has pipes I don't know if I could match!!! lol. Good suggestion :)

  3. Wanted by Bon Jovi or anything by Cher

  4. Yeah, but Kelly's songs are in a fairly easy range, friendly to non-singers (such as myself). Not too many high notes or anything - totally doable!

  5. I'd love to help you out, but I adamantly do not do karaoke. My sister used to host a karaoke night though... if I remember any of her best crowd pleasers, I'll let you know.

  6. Total Eclipse of the Heart. It came to me while driving into work this morning...Not sure if I could pull it off, but if I have enough cocktails I might just try!!!
