The right song in the right moodis the perfect solution for those karaoke blues. Here are some ageless classics that you will find easy to choose when your turn with the mike arrives.
For when you are feeling happy and content
“Happy Together” by The Turtles
The turtles were dangerously close to being called a one-hit wonder, a fact which the band can blame on their infectious late 60’s hit “Happy Together.”Although based on thelead singer’s unfortunate experience of unrequited love, the song has a surprisingly upbeat tune and peppy chord sequence and as such is a great way to get yourquiet friend to take the mic.
For when you are feeling sad and dejected
“Against All Odds” by Phil Collins
Released in 1984 with a movie of the same name, this old masterpiece was an instant hit of the time and continues to strike a melancholic cord with audiences even today. A song about trails during a relationship, it remains a much requested song for people going through a rough break-up.
For when you feel invincible
“Smells like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana
One of the quintessential rock anthems of the 90’s, Nirvana made their presence known with the runaway success of this single, which was featured in their iconic album ‘Nevermind’. The powerful intro riff, catchy baseline and bone-jarring power chords have made this song a much-requested track for teenagers and adults alike.
For when you just want to unwind
“Jamming” by Bob Marley
This rasta-reggae classic is an apt personification of the celebration of brotherhood and peace. It is a reminder of simpler times: before you had to worry about career, family, and health and all you wanted to do was get together with friends and chill. The song is best with a close group of friends and especially after a few drinks.
