Sing-a-Long to Silence: The Worst Karaoke Songs

OK, we know you can sing. Well, we know you think you can sing. We think we can sing too. Well, get up on that stage and prove it! Just one thing… there are tons of great karaoke songs you can sing-a-long to. But there are some that are best avoided. They’re tired old tracks, and we’ve heard them all before. Too many times before.

 

I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor

This is your aunt’s anthem. The thrice-divorced alcoholic who dresses in her teenage daughter’s wardrobe won’t need any provocation to get up on stage and squeal her way through Gloria Gaynor’s feminist power-ballad. Do you want to be that person? Do you? First we were afraid, now we’re petrified…

 

My Way by Frank Sinatra

After enough whiskeys – and anything else that’s on offer – all the men think they can do justice to ol’ Blue Eyes’ keynote song. They can’t. Not even wearing a suit, tipping the hat at a jaunty angle, or swirling a drink while they slouch across the karaoke machine can help those who attempt to nail this song. Regrets? After singing this you’ll have more than a few.

 

Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

Bohemian Rhapsody should be sung by only three groups of people: Queen, The Muppets, and the cast of Wayne’s World. If you’re not any of these people, forget it. It’s a sacred classic that shalt never be emulated by our feeble mortal voices.

 

Summer Nights

Look, we love love. It’s a beautiful thing. But that doesn’t mean we want to listen to two wailing cats looking into each other’s eyes while they duet to a song from a so-so 70’s musical. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John barely managed to do it without destroying our ears, so none of us are likely to do any better. Sure, getting up on stage might happen so fast, you might be havin’ a blast – but look around you. No-one else is.
