My Favorite Karaoke Songs

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

With one of my ride or dies, Missy, on one of many Monday night Karaoke sessions circa 2006.

Hands down, karaoke is one of my most favorite things to do.  I love love love to sing.  

It's funny though.  I used to sing on stage in front of thousands of people for, give or take, 6 years - yet I'm too nervous to sing karaoke in public.  Isn't that weird.  I'm too afraid to go off-key, or not hit a rift the way it should be done, or harmonize off pitch.  However, this doesn't keep me from singing - by far!
With my best friend from school, Ashley, circa 2006.

I love renting a room at my favorite karaoke spot, HMC Karaoke, with a bunch of friends, whipping up a bunch of pupus (appetizers) (or just getting the mother-load of fresh sashime and ahi poke) and drinks and having a good night of karaoke.

During summer and winter breaks, this was a weekly occurrence with my girlfriends; now we do it, maybe, a couple of times a year.  Now that we don't do it as often, I tend to forget all of my favorite karaoke songs.  So today, I figured I'd take time to create a playlist so that I'm ready to go at the next karaoke event.  Enjoy the playlist - and the links below will take you to the lyrics so you can sing alongside your favorite songs as well!!

  1. Sweet Caroline and Hotel California are classics, for sure. My friends are running a Disney-themed karaoke night...might have to sing some Mulan!

  2. I didn't include it, but my friend MIssy and I always always sing A Whole New World!!! Disney songs are super fun too :-). That should be a blast!

  3. Haha that's awesome! I love karaoke, even though I can't sing at all. I usually Bob Seger, Old Time Rock and Roll. Sometimes Semi-Charmed Life, Third Eye Blind.

  4. That looks like fun! I've only done karaoke once. My friends and I sang Lady Marmalade at our senior all night party after graduation. It was a lot of fun!
