101 Best Karaoke Songs Ever

Are you looking for some songs to sing at your next karaoke night? Then look no further! In this ultimate list, we've compiled the best karaoke songs ever, so you can spend less time looking through tracks and more time on the microphone.


“I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston

Song Year: 1992

We're starting our list off with Whitney Houston's incredible rendition of “I Will Always Love You”. While not everyone has the vocals or the guts to tackle this belting classic, you'll have a great time nonetheless.

Just a word of advice, don't let your tone-deaf friends take this one (for the sake of everyone's ears).

“Piano Man” by Billy Joel

Song Year: 1973

“Piano Man” has been a bar favorite for half a century now, and for some pretty good reasons. It's easy to sing, pleasant to listen to, and lyrically ingenious, not to mention it has the greatest harmonica interludes of all time.

No matter how much time passes, you can rest assured knowing that Billy Joel's masterpiece will always be a part of karaoke nights all around the world.

“Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond

Song Year: 1969

If you really want to get the room riled up and yelling at the top of your lungs, then “Sweet Caroline” is just the track you're looking for. It's a song everyone loves and knows the lyrics to – so well that fans have made their own additions of “bah bah bahs” and “so goods” to create a cacophony of beautiful nonsense.

“All the Small Things” by Blink 182

Song Year: 2004

This early 2000s pop-punk hit smashed records and quickly rose to fame on radios all throughout the states. Not only are the lyrics fun to sing in an obnoxious impression of the singer's nasally vocals, but the in-your-face lyrics make for an authentic punk rock experience all around.

“Firework” by Katy Perry

Song Year: 2010

Nothing feels better to sing or lights up the room with positivity more than Katy Perry's blaring hit, “Firework.”

Alright, that might be a bit opinionated, but it's still an exciting karaoke track nonetheless. What's not to love? Other than the sore throat you get afterward, that is.

“Creep” by Radiohead

Song Year: 1992

Anyone who chooses to sing this song for their turn has their eyes on a single segment of the song. Yeah, you know the part.

To be fair, it's a pretty good part, which is why “Creep” finds a comfortable spot on our list. And heck, the rest of the song ain't bad, either.

“My Way” by Frank Sinatra

Song Year: 1969

You knew it was coming, we knew it was coming; it should be no surprise that Frank Sinatra's 60's classic is coming in hot to the 2020s with some long, belting vibrato notes. Yes, this iconic track is as old as bubble wrap, but it still finds a way to be fresh in countless karaoke renditions and group sing-alongs everywhere you go.

Frank, you really did leave us with something special, didn't ya?

“500 Miles” by The Proclaimers

Song Year: 1988

This song is goofy, nonsensical, whimsical, and absolutely a treat to sing with your friends. It doesn't matter if you're packed together for a long road trip or singing along during bar karaoke night; “500 Miles” does NOT disappoint.

The best part about this entry is that you don't need any musical talent to sing it; just put it on and let the chaos ensue!

“Country Roads” by John Denver

Song Year: 1971

Whether you’re a fan of country music or not, “Country Roads” is bound to make you feel good as you sing its relatable lyrics. It doesn’t even matter if you don’t share the same country home as John Denver; it’s what his words represent that reminds us of the place where we belong.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen

Song Year: 1975

We could fill an entire list with karaoke Queen songs, but to make things fair for everyone else, we only chose one. And while all their songs would make stellar entries to this compilation, there was only ever one we could choose.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” is the ultimate group karaoke track and has a little bit of something for everyone. The rapid shifts make it a blast to sing, and you'll find a few other songs make a more impactful closing act.

“Barbie Girl” by Aqua

Song Year: 1997

Competing with “500 Miles” for the goofiest song on this list, “Barbie Girl” is a funny song that guys and gals alike love singing. Oddly enough, it seems like the guys are always more enthusiastic about this one…

“Wonderwall” by Oasis

Song Year: 1995

How does a song with vocals that drag on in a monotone voice make for such a fun karaoke song? It beats us, but we're all for it.

“Wonderwall” is one of those odd one-hit wonders that doesn't seem like it would be popular on paper, but – bam! The next thing you know and you're singing it at the top of your lungs on the next karaoke night.

“The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World

Song Year: 2001

College rock is darned, “The Middle” is a fast-paced banger that makes everyone start headbanging like there's no tomorrow.

Just remember: before you get this rockin' 2000s track on, be sure to get your air guitars out and turn those make-believe amps up.
