61 Best Karaoke Songs For Women

Best karaoke songs for women? Well, that can be a contentious issue, can’t it? After all, it depends a lot on the vibe you’re after.

That’s why, in this guide, we’ve collected a huge collection of songs you can choose from – fun, silly, serious, sexy, romantic, inspirational, sentimental, and more, depending on what sort of mood you’re in.

These are the best karaoke songs for women.


“Always Be My Baby” by Mariah Carey

Song Year: 1995

Okay, we all know that Mariah Carey is a monster of a singer, and you may not want to attempt her songs unless you’ve got a bit of practice under your belt.

“Always Be My Baby,” though, is upbeat, chill, fun, flirty, and romantic. The song is just too good to resist, and it’s sure to light up the room at karaoke night.

“Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga

Song Year: 2009

Early Lady Gaga songs are sure to be a hit at karaoke night, and “Bad Romance” stands out as a song that would become emblematic of both her weird, Halloween costume antics and masterful pop sensibilities that would define the early part of her career.

“Baby, Baby” by Amy Grant

Song Year: 1991

Amy Grant tunes are sometimes overlooked in the grand scheme of songs for women, presumably because she’s too Christian to be secular, and too secular to be Christian.

We have no intention of being controversial here, mind you, and if you look at “Baby, Baby” for what it is, you’ll probably find the same thing we did, that it’s a rather innocent, fun pop song about falling in love.

“Barbie Girl” by Aqua

Song Year: 1997

If you’re in a silly mood, then there’s nothing quite like Aqua’s Eurodance of “Barbie Girl.” In addition to being highly recognizable as a B-52’s inspired novelty 90s song, it’s sure to get the crowd up on their feet!

Although it would be wise to tackle this one with a low-voiced man, you can try this one alone or ask one of your girlfriends to take over the male part if you like.

“Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift

Song Year: 2014

Most Taylor Swift songs are about breakups and are therefore emotional or sentimental. Which is fine. You could probably get away with many of her songs, including “I Knew You Were Trouble,” at karaoke night.

But “Shake It Off” is just silly fun. So, get up and shake it to this one!

“Firework” by Katy Perry

Song Year: 2010

Katy Perry’s “Firework” is intended as one of her most inspirational. Does it work? Well, we’ll let you be the judge.

Perry’s songs are great for karaoke, but this comes with the cautionary note that her songs aren’t the easiest to sing, because Perry’s got some pipes on her!

“bad guy” by Billie Eilish

Song Year: 2019

Billie Eilish’s “bad guy” got a lot of attention for being very “different” upon its release. Peel the sticker off the casing, and you find that it’s basically just electropop with whispered vocals. Revolutionary? Perhaps not. Weirdly catchy? Of course, it is after all pop!

“Believe” by Cher

Song Year: 1998

Infamous for kickstarting the robotic, auto-tuned vocal trend, Cher’s “Believe” is, at its core, a very upbeat, catchy dance song.

I can’t tell you whether to believe in life after love, but if you want my advice… you can always find the good in life regardless of what’s happened to you. There is life after anything you might go through, so you may as well embrace it!

“Born This Way” by Lady Gaga

Song Year: 2011

In some ways, Gaga’s “Born This Way” calls back to dance music of the yesteryear. It’s still very quirky, of course, but the chorus could not be more 90s (don’t you think?).

It doesn’t matter who you are. You were “Born This Way,” and this is your opportunity to show everyone who you really are.

“Come Clean” by Hilary Duff

Song Year: 2003

If you have a penchant for melodrama, you will love Hilary Duff’s early 2000s hit, “Come Clean.” Her cutesy, nasally voice notwithstanding, there is a real song beneath the surface, and a skilled singer could do crazy things with this one (can you imagine Christina Aguilera singing it?).

“Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)” by Christina Aguilera

Song Year: 2000

When Christina Aguilera was still good, “clean” family fun, we had “Come On Over,” an upbeat, flirtatious, infectious tune. Of course, it took on new meaning post-Dirrty era Christina only two years later.

This song was made for dancing, so if you plan to hit the stage with “Come On Over,” you’d better come prepared to shake that booty!

“Holiday” by Madonna

Song Year: 1983

The early 80s were a time to party, and this post-disco hit reminded us that if we took a holiday, it would be so nice. People sometimes forget, but “Holiday” has a very tight, funky beat that was made for dancing. For any lighthearted celebratory occasion, this is a go-to.
