Ten Songs That Should Never Be Sung at Karaoke...Ever
Aug 3, 2009
As a former Karaoke DJ and Karaoke bar enthusiast, I can tell you that a good karaoke performance takes guts, personality and a decent voice (unless you've got enough personality, humor and dance moves to make up for it.) It also takes careful song choice. The list below contains songs that it seems no one can make into a good karaoke performance, although people keep trying anyway.
First of all this song is a painful eight minutes long and not in a very flattering range, and no one can ever remember exactly how it goes, which means that your audience will be cringing and throwing back shots the entire time.
The first part of this song is usually too low for the higher singers that seem to favor this song, and it's really quite a while until it finally gets to the "AND IIIIYEEEEIIIII WIIIL ALWAAAAYS LOOOVE YOOOUUUUU" part. Not to mention that long, held-out notes tend to show a lot o flaws in one's singing voice.
