Some Karaoke Suggestions

Ever been hanging out somewhere when some genius gets the brilliant suggestion to sing karaoke? It's usually a fun time, well, at least a funny time. Most people can't sing anyway. But standing in line waiting to sing, what do you pick? This question has plagued many a potential karaoke-r. Here, some ideas I think you should consider.

Twist and Shout by The Beatles

For one, you get to yell. And everybody knows the song and can sing along. When Twist and Shout was used in Ferris Bueller's Day Off in the 80's, it shot up the charts. This from a song released in the 60's. Everybody knows Twist and Shout!

Psycho Killer by Talking Heads

The ability to passionately deliver this Talking Heads classic, combined with the "funny" lyrics, make Psycho Killer one of my favorite songs to sing in my car at the top of my lungs.

House of the Rising Sun by The Animals

Another song most people know the lyrics to, Eric Burdon was one of the great 60's white soul singers. When played loudly the organ pierces your brain and my voice gets all raspy by the end of singing it!
