7 All Time Easy Karaoke Songs for Beginners
Karaoke is not a contest but surely no one wants to sound like a loser when holding the mic. Luckily, we made a list of songs that would serve as your safety blanket to make sure you never have to worry about the usual risk of performing karaoke in front of your friends or colleagues such as getting out of tune, singing a song no one in the crowd knows or simply having a difficulty finishing the song. The following songs meet the criteria of being popular, being easy and being the best karaoke songs for beginners:
Billy Joel - Uptown Girl
I’m sure, you know about this song. Everybody does. Do you know that this song was released in 1983? Yes! Thirty-six amazing years ago. Yet, I just heard a millennial singing it last week.
Taylor Swift - Shake It Off
An upbeat song to start a party with, anyone who won’t sing along to this song probably has some major issues of shaking it off.
Vanessa Carlton - A Thousand Miles
A nostalgic song that would make you remember someone you would walk a thousand miles for. Then enjoy some crowd interaction with pointing and nodding when the lyrics go: I need you, and I miss you.
The Beatles - Hey Jude
What else is there to say? Hey Jude, don’t make it bad. Take a sad song and make it better. And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain. Don't carry the world upon your shoulders. For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool. By making his world a little colder. Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
ABBA - Mamma Mia
There’s actually no rules against repeating a song over and over again in karaoke. If there is, then this song is an exception. You can practice on just this one and bring it to life in your next karaoke sesh as frequent as you would dare.
Joan Jett & The Blackhearts - I Love Rock N' Roll
The message of this song is plain and simple. I love rock n’ roll! Who would argue with that? The tune is made simple too. This song is best for a beginner in karaoke since you won’t even be singing, you need only to be chanting.
Wheatus - Teenage Dirtbag
Some people just don’t feel like singing, but you’re in a karaoke bar, of course, you’re expected to sing. If you’re one of these kinds of people, you need not to worry, especially you, Alex! This song is lazier than the Lazy Song by Bruno Mars. You would sound interested and engaged in singing while doing not so much effort at all, just hold the microphone, read the words, and you just prevented yourself from being a buzzkill. Easy!
