Karaoke Songs Suggestions For Women

I braved the local karaoke bar last week to find out what all the rant was about. It turned out to be plenty of fun, with a range of talent on stage.

What became very apparent was that women love to sing. It is incredibly difficult to determine which songs are best and worst when it comes to karaoke selections.

Depending on the country and even state (or province), song selections will vary greatly. Based on the number of times the following songs came up in this area, I have compiled a Top 4 best and worst karaoke songlist, accordingly. I leave the 5th one for you to fill in.

1.Complicated - Avril Lavigne

You don't have to be 16 year old "skater chick" to sing this song. Simple lyrics, a predictable beat and easy rhythm make this one a great karaoke choise.

2. Dancing Queen - Abba

"You can dance, You can jive, Having the time of your life..." Somewhere deep inside all of us, Abba lives on.

3. That Don't Impress Me Much - Shania Twain

Plenty of opportunity to strut your stuff, this song proved to be quite the favourite. Simple lyrics, catchy tune and Bob's your Uncle - you might just walk away as the ultimate karaoke queen.

4. Black Velvet- Alannah Myles

Leather trousers or not; deep, sexy, sultry and with a good beat, you cannot go far wrong. This is one of those songs that even after hearing for the 10th time that evening, you could probably still listen to again. And maybe even again.

As always, there's the other "darker" side. The following songs are definite no-no's and should only ever be sung at home in the shower or driving alone in your car, if at all, but preferably never. The surest way to make even the most die-hard, misunderstood karaoke groupie leave the bar is to sing any of these:

1. Wind beneath my wings - Bette Midler

Unless you are Bette Midler herself, do not even attempt to sing this song. You might just be responsible for someone's blood on your hands.

2. I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor

You will NOT survive. Trust me. Rotten tomatoes, boo-ing and a guaranteed trip back to the bar at some later time, to collect the name you threw away, are a definite.

3.I Touch Myself - The Divinyls

Oh dear. Think 1 tequila, 2 tequila, 3 tequila floor; next time you look, they'll all be out the door.

4. I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

Even if you are on the prowl for your own personal bodyguard, this song just isn't going to get you the sympathy you crave. Give it a very broad miss.
