Karaoke can be a lot of fun when you choose the right songs to sing. You need to pick good songs that people can groove to, but you also need to pick songs that are within your vocal range. If you’re drunk enough, none of that really matters, however, there are still those songs that bring the mood down in a room no matter how close to alcohol poisoning you are. Here are the top 5 worst songs to sing on karaoke night:
5. “The Star-Spangled Banner” by Francis Scott Key
Obviously the song is great, but I would only recommend you singing it at karaoke night if you’re sure of your vocal skills. This song destroys talented singers all the time so you’re going to want to proceed with caution. Plus, it’s the national anthem of America so the last thing you want to do is butcher it while you’re shitfaced like Roseanne did.
4. ”Hallelujah Chorus” from “Messiah” by Handel
This is a song that requires a lot of help from other people to do it justice. If you don’t have at least three other people singing with you it won’t sound good and you’ll feel like a huge ass. If you do choose “Hallelujah” make sure everyone is completely wasted.
3. “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” by Skrillex
It’s really hard to sing Dubstep songs. This one is particularly difficult because of the weird voices and all the Transformer sex noises. A lot of times people will assume you’re having a stroke and end up calling an ambulance.
2. “Amazing Grace” by John Newton
When you pick a song for karaoke it should be something fun and happy. Singing “Amazing Grace” really kills a party and makes people think about their lost loved ones. It can be a beautiful moment, but that’s not really what people go to karaoke for.
And the number one worst song to sing on karaoke night is…
1. “Star Wars Theme - Main Title” by John Williams
A lot of people tend to get creeped out when you start singing along to songs that don’t have lyrics. And while being a “nerd” is considered cooler these days than it used to be, singing the Star Wars theme won’t do you any favors when it comes to getting laid.
Now you might be thinking “Hey, I’m a great singer! I can make those songs work!” Well please be my guest. Give it a shot and see if you have any different results than I had. All I can do is give you my expertise and I’m saying these songs ruined parties. If you think you have what it takes please record it and send me a link. I’m sure we’d all love to see it.
