38 Karaoke Song Ideas

I love singing Karaoke, and as such am always looking for new songs to sing. I'm a woman, but for the most part I have a hard time singing female singers. I love singing 80's and 90's songs. I also love singing alternative rock karaoke, however I sing a little bit of everything. I love fun songs that get the audience singing along with me, so I make an effort to pick out songs that there alot of people enjoy, but haven't heard in a few years. I thought I'd provide a list of my favorite Karaoke songs to sing, maybe you'll get a few ideas here too. Jump in, leave a comment, tell me some songs you sing and and maybe I'll get some ideas too.


Karaoke is a blast! :) Have fun, maybe I'll see you at one of my favorite spots someday too.

My brother is addicted to Karaoke..LOL

I do like your song selection but I prefer to play them with a band. Karaoke is a good option for anyone who does not have a band or play a instrument though ;0)

I started out singing Karaoke when it was still on cassette.

I'm embarrassed to say that I've never karaoke'd before...i know, i know...Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way" seems like it'd be awesome to sing at the top of my lungs:)Great Hub!

Not a bad selection of songs. Except for Nickelback. You're running a big risk busting out a Nickelback song.
