If you’re not familiar with a song below, use the Spotify links to preview the artist version.
1. Montell Jordan – This Is How We Do It
Hip-hop from the 1990’s! Yeah, it’s fly. It’s tight! You know, it’s da bomb! Ok, enough of the throwback slang, homey don’t play dat. Sorry, sorry. I couldn’t help myself. Anyway, it’s slow enough so even if you’ve indulged in a couple adult beverages you’ll still be able to show your smooth side. Whoops, did it again.
2. The Waitresses – I Know What Boys Like
A little sassy, and a little flirty. Can you sing in a monotone voice and do a little bop from side to side? Then you should easily be able to steal the show with this one and nobody will know it’s on the easy karaoke song list! Shhh, I won’t tell.
3. Dr. Dre feat. Eminem – Forgot About Dre
Well, I’m not going to lie here. It probably helps if you’re a Dre or Eminem fan and have heard this one and know the lyrics a bit. But as far as rap and hip-hop go, if you’re a fan of rap karaoke music then you should be able to handle this one no problem. You probably also realize this one has some explicit lyrics.
4. Beastie Boys – Intergalactic
Do you and a friend just love the Beastie Boys? Well, here ya go! You can sing this one together. And in the meantime, I’ll also point you to the karaoke list for good duet songs because once you sing one together you’ll want to sing two.
5. Billy Joel – We Didn’t Start The Fire
At one point in my life I knew the lyrics by heart to this Billy Joel classic. And if I’m able to remember lyrics, that’s really saying something since I’ve made a business out of reading lyrics off a tv screen. So that should tell you all you need to know about picking this easy song selection.
6. Cheap Trick – I Want You To Want Me
Is your hot date sitting out there in the crowd? You’ll give them the warm fuzzies all over if you put this one in and, hey, they won’t even know it practically sings itself!
7. Oasis – Wonderwall
It seems you’re either an Oasis fan or you’re not. But if you are, you really won’t get much easier than this one. Straightforward, a little slow, and uncomplicated lyrics will allow you to look like a karaoke star with Wonderwall.
8. Fountains Of Wayne – Stacy’s Mom
I bet you’ve heard Stacy’s Mom before but you couldn’t name the band to save your life? Am I right? No worries, now you know! And even better for you is that it’s really simple! Plug it into the song queue with confidence!
9. The Killers – Mr. Brightside
Ok, kind of like the Dr. Dre and Eminem song above, it helps if you’re familiar with this tune. But it’s really not that hard and pretty fun to sing once you get started. Probably not good for a first time karaoke singer (go to song #20 on this list if you are a first timer) but if you have even a few songs under your belt this one is off the beaten path and easy to sing to boot!
10. Dixie Chicks – Goodbye Earl
If you like country music, need an easy song selection and maybe have a little revenge on your mind, well, here you go. I should probably include it in this song list over here too.
11. Smash Mouth – All Star
Have no fear if your singing voice is not going to have Simon Cowell or The Voice judges clamoring for more of your music. Believe me, you don’t need to be an all-star singer to sing All Star.
12. The Beatles – Yellow Submarine
Here’s why this one is easy even though we’re talking about a Beatles song: people are born knowing the chorus of this song! It’s highly likely nobody will even hear you over the crowd yelling “yellow submarine” at the top of their lungs.
13. Sugar Ray – Fly
Mark McGrath, lead singer, can’t carry a tune in a bucket and even that didn’t prevent this song from becoming hugely popular in the late 90s. Really all you need to say is “I just wanna fly” and “put your arms around me baby.”
14. OMC – How Bizarre
I’m going to warn you now, if you sing this song you will have the tune in your head for the next week and a half. Guaranteed. Just saying!
15. The Rolling Stones – (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction
There aren’t enough people who sing The Rolling Stones. This song especially, it’s slow, there’s no tongue twisting lyrics, and let’s face it, everyone knows the words and will be singing along with you!
16. Chumbawamba – Tubthumping
I get knocked down, but I get up again. That’s mostly all you need to say to get through this one. Plus there’s this crazy cult-like following of people who love this song so you have that going for you too!
17. Blink 182 – All The Small Things
Can I interest you in a pop punk song for you alternative music types? Good! Here’s the song that put Blink on the map so, if nothing else, you’re singing a song most people have probably heard before.
18. The Proclaimers – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)
Let me guess, you didn’t know the actual title of this song was I’m Gonna Be? Don’t lie! No matter, it’s not only on the easy side but it’s also pretty fun. You could also bring a friend with you to the stage if you need to.
19. Weezer – Buddy Holly
Here’s another one for you alternative rock types the love the 90s. Hey, that’s no knock on anyone, I put myself in this category too. This one is a shorty, 2:39, so that and the fact you get to say “I don’t care about that” several times.
And last but not least, if you really need an easy karaoke song then channel your inner Pee Wee Herman and go for the TEQUILA!
20. The Champs – Tequila
It really will not get any easier than this one. If you can say tequila three times then you have this song nailed! And if you’ve seen Pee Wee’s Big Adventure (see video below) you can add a little dance that is sure to be the hardest part in choosing this song.
