    I always like having this coversation with people about songs that should never be sung (or attempted to be sung) at Karaoke's

    my short list

    1) Any rap or hip-hop song - time and a place for them and a Karoke bar is neither in my opinion Rap and Hip-Hop have no place in a Karaoke (whether you can rap or not) just no
    2) If your a guy NO QUEEN, JOURNEY OR MJ unless you're sure you can hit the high notes or are able to sing them an octive or two below
    3) The blatannt sexual song - need this need any explanation
    4) If your a girl no Whitney Huston unless you can also hit the notes
    5) The underground songs that have (in the grand scheme of things) a niche following

    Like to hear your thoughts

    In case anyone is wondering yes i have sung in front of people before and i actually tried to sing not only a MJ song (Earth Song) but also Let It Go, i did ok, but i know there were very ballsy songs to sing esp as i'm a guy who get stage fright makign my vocal chords restrict, there making it impossible to sing high

    Don't stop believin' or any other journey song.
    Bohemian Rhapsody. No just no. Freddie rolls in his grave every time some drunk murders it.
    Summer nights + most other grease songs
    Beyonce songs (minus single ladies)
    Songs that have unclean vocals

    True, but it's gotta be a breath of fresh air when two people can actually sing it well

    The whole point of karaoke is that it's a bit of laugh and an opportunity to let your hair down and take the mick out of each other. As soon as there's some absolute wet taking themselves far too seriously and rolling their eyes when someone picks something that's not well known, too well known, too hard, too easy it just ruins the vibe.
