In this article, we’ll give you the 101 best karaoke songs of all time. 

1. I Want It That Way – Backstreet Boys 

Backstreet Boys - I Want It That Way (Official HD Video)

Look, any of the Backstreet Boys’ bigger hit tracks can slot in as an amazing karaoke song. I Want It That Way is probably one of the greatest choices you can make. Solo, duo, or group karaoke works for it, and you’ll be able to have everyone sing along with you to help hide your—probably—awful singing voice. 

2. I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor  

Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive

“At first I was afraid, I was petrified…” Man, this is just such a good song. I Will Survive is one of the most popular karaoke songs ever and something you should definitely have in your bag ready to go. It’s high energy and easy to deliver and gives you plenty of room to freestyle moves while you’re on stage. 

3. I Wanna Dance With Somebody – Whitney Houston 

Whitney Houston - I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Official 4K Video)

One of the things that can make a karaoke song one of the best is finding a track with high energy and lyrics you can put some emotion into. This one is one of the best for any woman to pull out for karaoke night, a funny one for the men to do, and even one you can duet by alternating verses. 

4. We Will Rock You – Queen 

Queen - We Will Rock You (Official Video)

We Will Rock You is a great performance song when it comes to karaoke. You can get the whole crowd clapping and stomping along and involving your audience can make your performance stand out more than anything else. It’s also super helpful that you don’t have to have any crazy vocal abilities to pull this one off.

5. Man! I Feel Like a Woman – Shania Twain 

Shania Twain - Man! I Feel Like A Woman (Official Music Video)

Man or woman, this song is just so fun to sing. Shania Twain produced an absolute masterpiece with this track, and the female empowerment of it was so good it crosses over gender lines to make a banger of a karaoke song. Plus if you happen to be a large man who gets on stage to sing it, you’ll definitely get the crowd laughing and supporting you quickly. 

6. Love Shack – The B-52’s

The B-52's - Love Shack (Official Music Video)

Love shack, baby. Hey, if you’re trying to find a track for a group to do you probably can’t find a better karaoke song than Love Shack by the B-52’s. It’s funky, doesn’t need any crazy notes to sound good, and you can get the whole party involved. 

7. Since U Been Gone – Kelly Clarkson 

Kelly Clarkson - Since U Been Gone (VIDEO)

Since U Been Gone is honestly a great karaoke song if you’re a bit shy. The verses are slow and fairly muted, so you’ll have time to get comfortable before the chorus explodes and requires any real energy from you. Plus, even if Kelly Clarkson is an amazing vocalist, this isn’t exactly a track that shows off that talent, a big bonus for us. 

8. F*ck You – CeeLo Green 

Cee Lo Green - FUCK YOU

I’m gonna say, make sure it’s an adult karaoke party for this one. But, if you’re looking for a funny song or one to try to tell off your boss at the staff party, then you probably shouldn’t be looking any further than this track. You’ll probably even get away with it. 

9. This Love – Maroon 5 

Maroon 5 - This Love (Official Music Video)

This classic Maroon 5 track is one of the most popular karaoke songs. It’s got an easy delivery through the verses and the chorus and who can resist belting out the “Whoas” in the chorus?

10. Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey 

Journey - Don't Stop Believin' (Official Audio)

The song known for getting the girls turnt, you can’t go wrong picking Don’t Stop Believin’ for karaoke night. It’s not an overly complicated track, and you can bet everyone at the party has heard it and will sing along with you. It can even sound pretty good if you suck at singing. 

11. Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen 

Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody (Official Video Remastered)

Make no mistake, it takes a massive vocal range to nail Bohemian Rhapsody. Thankfully, it’s an amazing song that just about everyone will sing along with so you should be able to hide your lackluster singing voice a bit that way. 

12. Stand by Me – Ben E. King 

Ben E. King - Stand By Me (Audio)

Stand By Me is an absolute classic and an incredible karaoke song. It’s pretty simple overall so you can’t get lost following along with the lyrics. Adding a bit of sway to your step as you sing can really enhance the performance as well. You can even dedicate it to your sweetheart as a nice little gesture at the party. 

13. You Give Love a Bad Name – Bon Jovi 

Bon Jovi - You Give Love A Bad Name (Official Music Video)

The tell-off song from Bon Jovi is an excellent choice for karaoke. Full of emotion and a bit of bitterness that’ll let you spit vitriol toward anybody in the crowd you like, the track is a rock classic and should have most of your audience singing along with you. 

14. Pour Some Sugar on Me – Def Leppard

DEF LEPPARD - "Pour Some Sugar On Me" (Official Music Video)

There’s a reason Pour Some Sugar on me is included on all the Monsters Of Rock discs and featured on almost every karaoke machine. It just rocks, and this classic of the genre is sure to get your entire audience involved. Just look out for being too sticky and sweet as you go through it. 

15. Killing Me Softly With His Song – Fugees 

Fugees - Killing Me Softly With His Song (Official Video)

Killing Me Softly is a beautiful track with a pretty simple delivery all the way through. If you’re a singer at all, you can really shine when you’re performing this one, and you can even turn it into a duet or multipart song if you want to. 

16. Purple Rain – Prince

If you’ve got a bit of a better voice than most karaoke singers, Purple Rain is a great way to show off. Not for the shy, the emotional vocal breaks and range in notes are perfect for showing off your skills on the mic, and paying tribute to the legendary Prince is never a bad way to go. 

17. Call Me Maybe – Carley Rae Jepsen 

Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe

Sometimes, the best karaoke songs are ones that are just super annoying and cheesy. Call Me Maybe fits neatly into that niche, serving as one of the biggest viral hits in history and something everyone will know and start laughing at as soon as you start up the track. Campy is a good word for it, but it barely does it justice.

18. Shallow – Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper

Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper - Shallow (from A Star Is Born) (Official Music Video)

Sometimes, you just need a good duet at a karaoke party. There are a few on this list, but Shallow should rank near the top of those entries. It’s a really beautiful song, and the line deliveries are really short, making it easy to follow along with and sing. 

19. Super Bass – Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj - Super Bass (Official Video)

If you want your audience’s heartbeats to start running away, get on stage and karaoke the crap out of Super Bass. As far as rap songs go, it isn’t too difficult, and it’s got some really good rhymes and rhythms throughout it. It was also one of the most popular tracks of the year when it was released, so be sure that everyone will know what the next line is if you forget. 

20. Friends in Low Places – Garth Brooks

Garth Brooks - Friends in Low Places

I’m gonna be honest with you, Friends In Low Places is probably the greatest country karaoke song of all time. Every chorus will have the whole bar singing along and you can roar out just about every section of the track you want to while not worrying too much about how you sound. 

21. These Boots are Made for Walkin’ – Nancy Sinatra 

Nancy Sinatra "These Boots Are Made For Walkin" on The Ed Sullivan Show

 I feel like this song shouldn’t even need much of an introduction. Everyone knows that these boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’re gonna do. Make sure you’ve got your walking shoes on for this one and enjoy. 

22. You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ – The Righteous Brothers 

You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'

Let’s take it back to the old school with You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling. More of a ballad than most of the list, it’s got some deeply emotional lines, perfect spots to showcase your own voice, and plenty of sections to get the crowd involved as your backup singers, especially in the chorus. 

23. Rehab – Amy Winehouse 

Amy Winehouse - Rehab

If they try to make you go to rehab, tell them no, no, no. Seriously though, Rehab is an infectious song with a slow delivery that’ll get your next karaoke party jumping. It’s a bit ironic as far as Amy Winehouse tracks go for obvious reasons, but that doesn’t change the fact that it works incredibly well as a karaoke song. 

24. We Got The Beat – The Go-Go’s 

The Go-Go's - We Got The Beat

We Got The Beat is an essential karaoke song if we’re honest about it. The uptempo beat forces you and the crowd to give off tons of energy, and you won’t find anything funnier than a big burly dude trying to match the pitches and keys of this one. It’s got some long instrumental sections for you to bust out your best dance moves too.

25. Survivor – Destiny’s Child 

Destiny's Child - Survivor (Official Video)

Karaoke is popular with a lot of people because it’s empowering to get on stage and sing in front of people. Survivor is a track that just goes hard, and Destiny’s Child ended up making a great karaoke song when they released it. If you’re an old fan of the group, this is a must-try. 

26. Bring Me to Life – Evanescence 

Evanescence - Bring Me To Life (Official HD Music Video)

Look, we both know trying to keep up with Amy Lee’s amazing voice won’t happen, but that doesn’t change how much energy this song brings to the table. If you wanna rock the party and have a bit of a performer in you though, this is probably one of the best tracks you can sing on the karaoke. Just don’t strain your voice on those high notes.

27. Hooked On A Feeling – Blue Swede 

1. Blue Swede - Hooked on a Feeling

Hooked On A Feeling is a hilarious classic with one of the best intros ever. You can showcase how wonderful your voice sounds as you go through it and get some backup singers on stage for the chorus, intros, and endings if you want as well. It’s a bop of a song when it comes to karaoke that you should definitely give a shot. 

28. Total Eclipse of the Heart – Bonnie Tyler

Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart (Turn Around) (Official Video)

As far as karaoke duets go, this one should be on your go-to list since you can split up the parts to make a fun little group. While it has a bit of a campy vibe thanks to being used in TV ads and memes in the years since it was released, it’s still a very pretty song. Realistically, this one works best if you can’t sing at all and just have fun with it. 

29. Don’t Go Breaking My Heart  – Elton John and Kiki Dee 

Elton John, Kiki Dee - Don't Go Breaking My Heart (with Kiki Dee)

Don’t Go Breaking My Heart is an adorable and catchy duet that works perfectly for a karaoke song. It’s an old-school love track that earned its place as a classic for good reason. You’ll be hard-pressed to find an easier and better karaoke song if we’re honest about it, and it’s super fun to perform, going back and forth with your significant other. 

30. Before He Cheats – Carrie Underwood 

Carrie Underwood - Before He Cheats (Official Video)

I was among the younger men who loved belting out Carrie Underwood’s empowering songs years ago. Before He Cheats has all the attitude and sass you want from prime Carrie Underwood, and if you can get a group of guys on stage doing this one at a karaoke night, you’re in for a darn good time. 

31. Girls Just Want to Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper 

Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Want To Have Fun (Official Video)

Is there a more iconic girl’s track than this one from Cyndi Lauper? It also happens to be a ridiculously popular karaoke song, and you can bet the crowd will back up your singing on this one. 

32. Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Ice 

Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby (Official Music Video)

Vanilla Ice’s biggest hit is a track just about everyone has heard and an easy one to rap through on stage. It’s also reached cult kind of status and has a bit of a cheesy reputation among younger crowds, making it perfect to belt out as a karaoke song and get some laughs along the way. 

33. (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party) – Beastie Boys 

Beastie Boys - Fight For Your Right (Revisited) Full Length

Sometimes, you need to pull out something a little grimier on karaoke night. That’s a fairly reasonable way to describe this one, and bringing some punk hip hop vibes to the stage is basically never a mistake. Don’t worry, no crazy difficult rap lines here, just scream them out and you’ll do fine. 

34. Home – Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros 

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - Home (Lyrics)

Home is a beautiful song about feeling at home no matter where you are as long as you’re with your significant other. It works great for karaoke as both a duet and a solo track, with choruses that are perfect for involving your audience in the song as well. 

35. Bust a Move – Young MC 

Bust it. It’s hard to find a truly better intro for a karaoke song, and this old-school hip hop track will be pretty easy to nail for modern-day rappers. It’s got a funky beat you and your audience will enjoy. It’s perfect for busting out dance moves as you rap through the song. 

36. I Love Rock ‘N Roll – Joan Jett & the Blackhearts 

Joan Jett & the Blackhearts - I Love Rock 'N Roll (Official Video)

I Love Rock ‘N Roll has been a staple of karaoke and arena music for years. It’s got the perfect mix of rock and punk, with choruses designed to get the audience singing along to help cover up a mediocre vocal performance—from you, not Joan Jett, she rocks. 

37. Dancing Queen – ABBA 

Abba - Dancing Queen (Official Music Video Remastered)

Oh ABBA, you blessed us with so many international hit tracks, but Dancing Queen has to be near the top of that list. It also makes for a wonderful karaoke song with its upbeat pop vibe, widespread notoriety, and ability to be done as either a solo track or in a fairly big group. 

38. Respect – Aretha Franklin 

Aretha Franklin - Respect (Official Lyric Video)

Speaking of queens, how can we not put Aretha Franklin on this list? Respect has to be one of the most popular karaoke songs of all time. Whether or not you can match up to her vocal ability doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is how amazing this track is and how good a karaoke performance you can put on with it. 

39. Livin’ On A Prayer – Bon Jovi 

Bon Jovi - Livin' On A Prayer

Lemon on a pear? Eagle on a bear? Lizard in a chair? Despite the memes to come out of the slightly difficult-to-understand lyrics in the chorus of Livin’ On A Prayer, it should absolutely be in your karaoke repertoire. The chorus especially has been iconic since it was released, and whipping this one out will have the crowd halfway there to love seeing you on stage. 

40. What’s Up – 4 Non Blondes 

4 Non Blondes - What's Up (Official Music Video)

What’s Up might be one of the best karaoke songs ever for work functions. The vocal highs and lows are sure to get some laughs if your voice cracks and get you some kudos if you nail them. Overall, it’s just a classic track, especially when it comes to karaoke, and one that you should look for on the setlist. 

41. It’s Raining Men – The Weather Girls

The Weather Girls - It's Raining Men (Video)

You know, Let The Bodies Hit The Floor and It’s Raining Men are the same song from different perspectives? But seriously, It’s Raining Men is a jazzy classic that will bless the ears of your audience and the karaoke machine you’re working with. One of the funniest karaoke songs you can choose, be sure to try it out on a night out.

42. …Baby One More Time – Britney Spears 

Britney Spears - ...Baby One More Time (Official Video)

Britney Spears has to be on this list. There are a few songs that could make an argument to get slotted in here, but we’re going with her most iconic one: … Baby One More Time. One of pop’s best tracks ever and an excellent choice for any karaoke party, you’ll have the audience asking you to hit them one more time. 

43. Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go – Wham!

Wham! - Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go (Official Video)

A classic jitterbug opening and some hilariously campy lyrics are what hold this track up as an amazing karaoke song. While it was a big hit when it was released, it’s still something almost everyone has heard and will be sure to make a splash on karaoke night, especially if you can pull out some of the snap-step dance moves from the video. 

44. Island in the Stream – Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers 

Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers - Islands In the Stream (Official Audio)

It’s always a good time when Dolly Parton teams up with Kenny Rogers, but Islands In The Stream is truly something special. One of country history’s best duets, pull your lover on stage at your next karaoke night and bust this song out for some wild applause. 

45. Baby Got Back – Sir Mix-A-Lot

Sir Mix-A-Lot - Baby Got Back (Official Music Video)

This is another one I don’t think needs a ton of introduction. Everyone knows Baby Got Back, and this classic hip hop song is one of your best options to get everyone dancing on karaoke night. 

46. Drunk In Love – Beyoncé Feat. Jay-Z

Beyoncé - Drunk in Love (Explicit) ft. JAY Z

Karaoke duets aren’t reserved for just country music and classic ballads, there are some great hip hop ones out there too. Drunk In Love is probably the best song to scratch that itch on karaoke night for hip hop heads, and the simple delivery makes it easy to vibe to on stage. 

47. Africa – Toto

Toto - Africa (Official HD Video)

Do you know why there are no vampires in Africa? Toto blessed the rains down there years ago, and the holy water melted them all. The song is universally regarded as a classic bop and one that will have everyone—instead of just you—singing along on karaoke night. 

48. Good 4 U – Olivia Rodrigo 

Olivia Rodrigo - good 4 u (Official Video)

The track good 4 u is one of the more recently-released entries to this list, and the song you should break out at karaoke night if your ex happens to be around. It’s got a punk kind of attitude about it without straying too far away from its pop sensibilities and the up-and-down energy of the verses and chorus can help you ease into it. 

49. You Belong With Me – Taylor Swift 

Taylor Swift - You Belong With Me

Taylor Swift is another artist that had to find a slot on this list somewhere. Instead of going with one of her newer, biggest tracks, consider breaking out classic country Taylor Swift with this one. Like a lot of great karaoke songs, it starts slow and builds into the choruses, and the slightly awkward lyrics make it a fun time to sing. 

50. All The Small Things – Blink-182

blink-182 - All The Small Things (Official Music Video)

I’m still a firm believer that if you play this song at just about any bar in the US, you’ll end up with the whole bar singing along to the track. That alone makes it a great karaoke song and the perfect way to engage with your group when it’s your turn to take the stage. 

51. Don’t Speak – No Doubt 

No Doubt - Don't Speak (Official 4K Music Video)

Karaoke songs often rely on incredibly iconic choruses for their popularity, and Don’t Speak is one of those tracks. The emotion and volume ramp up to ten on the chorus, giving you an easy intro to get started in it before belting out the more intense parts. 

52. If I Could Turn Back Time – Cher

Cher - If I Could Turn Back Time (Official Video)

Another thing that makes a song one of the best for karaoke is when you can whip out a classic from an incredible vocalist. If I Could Turn Back Time is your time to shine and more than worth whipping out on karaoke night. 

53. Sweet Caroline – Neil Diamond 

Neil Diamond - Sweet Caroline (Live At The Greek Theatre / 2012)

If you can find someone that doesn’t know this song, I will be shocked. The iconic “Sweet Caroline, buh buh buhhh” will ensure that you aren’t the only one singing along on karaoke night. 

54. Let It Go – Idina Menzel 

Disney's Frozen "Let It Go" Sequence Performed by Idina Menzel

Parents beware, you’re likely sick to death of this song, and if you do a kid karaoke night, you’re probably gonna be hearing it quite a lot more. Let It Go from Frozen was a sensation, sweeping living rooms and karaoke nights for years to come. 

55. Jessie’s Girl – Rick Springfield 

Rick Springfield - Jessie's Girl (Official Video)

Rick Springfield and Bruce Springsteen’s songs both have this kind of nostalgia factor to them that’s hard to really understand. A simple poppy rock track, Jessie’s Girl may come off as being super jealous, but that feeling gives it a bit of an edge that bolsters it as a karaoke song. 

56. Sweet Child O’ Mine – Guns N’ Roses 

Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine (Official Music Video)

For the rockers out there, it’s hard to go wrong with this Guns N’ Roses banger. Amazing intro and high-pitched vocal performances will get the crowd going.

Don’t kid yourself into thinking you have any chance of actually sounding like Adele with this song, but don’t let that fact stop you from singing this one on karaoke night. It’s a haunting track that will help change up the pace from all the pop songs that will likely be played that night. 

60. Bye Bye Bye – *NSYNC 

*NSYNC - Bye Bye Bye (Official Video)

Another absolutely classic pop song, Bye, Bye, Bye lives on in the hearts of everyone who could listen to music in the early days of boy bands. If you want, you could also try the pop-punk version of the track that has a little more tempo and a little more edge to it. 

61. Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit Of…) – Lou Bega 

Lou Bega - Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit of...)

Hit it… 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit Of…) is a good time on a karaoke stage with its upbeat and funky beat. Just don’t expect a number six coming out soon. 

62. Wrecking Ball – Miley Cyrus

Disney tracks always make for great karaoke songs. Friend Like Me from Aladdin is your chance to show off your voice-acting skills and pay tribute to the late Robin Williams. 

91. Piano Man – Billy Joel 

Billy Joel - Piano Man (Official HD Video)

Piano Man is a simple and classic Billy Joel song that not only gave him his nickname but became one of his best-known tracks.
