Although there are often hundreds of thousands of songs available, people often turn to time-tested favorites when taking a karaoke. Whether for their epic arrangements, inspirational lyrics or sheer ability to make a dead person feel like a worldwide singer, some pop songs continue to be common choices for karaoke.
‘Don’t Stop Believin’ ‘
No wonder Journey’s’ Don’t Stop Believin ” is one of the most popular songs for karaoke; the words are inspiring, encouraging even the most horrible singer to believe in his talents or lack thereof. Released on the band’s 1981 album, ‘Escape’, ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ ‘presents’ a little town girl, livin ‘in a lonely world’ and ‘a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit’ the scene for someone, man or woman, to go up on stage and sing out their lyrics. The payoff does not come until the end, when the song’s chorus finally emerges, building expectations on whether the singer will be able to take high notes and ‘hold on to that feeling.’
‘Livin’ on a prayer ‘
Hair metal bands were known for making anthems with high-heeled vocals and Bon Jovi’s’ Livin ‘on a Prayer’ takes the cake for his upper cow, who almost dares his listener to try to hit high notes. New Jersey rock band released ‘Livin’ on a Prayer ‘on their 1986 album,’ Slippery When Wet ‘. Its lyrics tell the story of two working class children: Tommy the doll worker and Gina the waitress. The song strikes a chord with Everyman. Add to that the fact that hit songwriter Desmond Child wrote it and it makes sense that ‘Livin’ on a Prayer ‘is one of the most popular songs for karaoke.
Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is one of the most popular songs for karaoke due to the song’s operative elements and several movements, which defies the typical pop structure and song length. With references to killing a man, 120 song tracks and, in the song’s song / songwriter Freddie Mercury, ‘Random Rhyming Nonsense’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is an epic song, challenging karaoke singer to deal with its complex arrangement and wide vocal range. Released in 1975, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ only reached number 9 on the US charts, but it has been called one of the best songs of all time, making it a typical choice for a karaoke song.
