You know you rock at singing along with the car radio, and you’ve decided to share your vocal gifts with the world by singing karaoke at your favorite bar.
But how will you choose which song to sing?
Insider Monkey looked at sources including Sing Snap, Kara Songs, Karaoke Version and Google to figure out the most popular karaoke songs. Here’s a list of the top 15:
15. Coming in at number 15 on this list is old Blue Eyes himself, Frank Sinatra, with his in-your-face anthem “My Way.” Appropriate for so many situations from retirement to divorce.
14. “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. You know you love singing it when your team’s behind — why not in the bar, as well?
13. Another anthem comes in at lucky 13, Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive.” Hopefully the audience will survive your rendition of this song.
12. Stevie Wonder’s “I Just Called to Say I Love You.” Sing it to someone on the phone for extra awesome karaoke points.
11. Take a deep breath, it’s a long one. “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen is almost six minutes long. Will you do the fandango?
10. “Imagine” by John Lennon. It’s slow, has a couple of yoo-hoos in it, and it has a nice message.
9. Bet you can’t resist playing air guitar with this one — “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses.
8. “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley. Elvis. ‘Nuff said.
7. Next on the list is “Hotel California” by the Eagles. Such a lovely place. Such a lovely song.
6. This one’s only for the confident, brave or stupid, “My Heart Will Go On,” the theme song from the movie “Titanic.” Can you sing like Celine Dion? Didn’t think so.
5. Here’s a crowd pleaser that’s easy to sing: “Let It Be” by the Beatles. No wonder it’s near the top.
And rounding out the top five:
4. “Stand by Me” by Ben E. King.
3. “Let It Go” by Idina Menzel (are elementary school girls doing karaoke now?)
2. “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen
And the number one most requested karaoke song is….
“Someone Like You” by Adele.
