Top 10 Most Annoying Karaoke Songs

I am sorry to my regulars who sing these songs, but this list needed to be done. Whenever I see these songs on the sign up sheet, I know they will be terrible, and I know you can't sing...

1. Picture - Kid Rock & Sheryl Crow
You and the girl you just met want to sing, it doesn't mean you should...

2. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - Cindy Lauper
You and your girlfriends on your birthday/bachelorette party want to sing really high for four minutes... Go with I Touch Myself next time, at least then the guys will be happy.

3. I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor
We get it, your bitter. Try Dixie Chicks or Miranda Lambert instead... Still bitter but not as predicable.

4. Summer Nights - Grease
We've heard it. We've heard it by better singers than you too. Try breaking up the duet and picking a rocking fast song.

5. Paradise By The Dashboad Light - Meatloaf
Same as above plus 3 minutes of misery...

6. Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond
This one is for the boys. I know it is fun to do after midnight and get the gang up there, but just do me a favor and sing it, don't yell it. Also, let the crowd to the Bum Bums... Don't force it.

7. Love Shack - B52s
This one is for the couples again. It can be good if both people can sing and take it seriously, but most of the time one party will butcher this... Better off just letting the one who can sing go solo.

8. Desperado - Eagles
Way to slow for a bar and takes a lot of talent. Try something faster and more rocking like Keep Your Hands To Yourself by the Georgia Satellites.

9. Old Country Songs
IE. Patsy Cline's Walking After Midnight, or Amarrillo By Morning for the guys. Too old, slow and a total show killer. Try some current country or southern rock and party with the rest of us. No tears in our beers...

10. Anything By Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, or Evanescense
Trust Me, this will be 5 painful minutes of screaching unless you are a professional singer. Let's just skip it... Only exception is Whitney's I Wanna Dance With Somebody. That is just good clean fun!

I hope that helps...
