If your birthday is coming up and you want to have a singing and dancing party, you might be interested to know the best karaoke songs to sing on your birthday.
Birthday parties are the best opportunity to go wild on a night out and have a great time with your friends. I just had a birthday and I went to a great dance spot with my friends and it was a lot of fun. I’m not too interested in karaoke nights as a general statement, but I think for birthdays it can be a ton of fun if you have the right group of people and it’s the right kind of place. Everyone loves to sing along to their favorite songs even if they don’t want to admit it. We’ve all sang along to our favorite songs in the shower or in the car, so karaoke night isn’t the time to bow out and sit down. If it’s your birthday, you should definitely be willing to bust out some great tunes.
The key to a good karaoke pick is something you know the words to, something that has a great beat, and something that can get the crowd pumped. As much as I love “Paradise by the Dashboard Light,” it’s nine minutes long and shouldn’t be a pick for karaoke. Anything that’s slow or sappy will annoy the group you’re with, too. I’m sure if it’s your birthday you can pick whatever you want, but it’s way more fun to pick something upbeat and fun to sing along. If you want to use the situation to your advantage and make someone special swoon, take a look at the best karaoke songs to impress a girl.
In order to create this list of best karaoke songs to sing on your birthday, we used AXS and Bustle to check out some great songs to sing for a birthday. We excluded the ballads and tried to find the songs that were most appropriate for a birthday occasion to sing and dance to since those are way more fun. If you’re planning a karaoke birthday, you should make sure you have all the listed songs on your playlist. There’s no particular order since these songs are all great, but we sorted it by how our sources ranked the songs.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the best karaoke songs to sing on your birthday.
15. “Make Me” – Britney Spears Feat. G-Eazy
“Make Me” is the first single from Britney’s ninth studio album and it features the rapper G-Eazy. I love this song and it’s a great example of how Britney Spears will always be relevant. No party is complete without at least one Britney anthem.
14. “Work” – Rihanna Feat. Drake
“Work” by Rihanna featuring Drake is the number one hit song of 2016 and no one can tell me otherwise. “Anti” is one of the greatest albums that was released this year and you can’t go wrong with Rihanna.
13. “NO” – Meghan Trainor
Meghan Trainor released her second studio album “Thank You” in 2016 and “NO” is the first single. It made it to the number three spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and it’s a great pop song.
12. “Cheap Thrills” – Sia Feat. Sean Paul
Every Sia song is a great option for karaoke. This is a great song for when you’re nervous about not hitting any of those notes in “Chandelier.” This is a great pump-up song before going out and it’s always a blast to hear it at parties.
11. “Birthday Cake” – Rihanna Feat. Chris Brown
Again, you can’t go wrong with Rihanna. If it’s your birthday, you should of course sing about birthday cake, even though that’s not really what the song is about. I know Chris Brown is trash, but this song is still incredible simply because Rihanna is one of the greatest living artists of our time.
10. “Raise Your Glass” – Pink
Whether it’s the original or one of the two Glee cast versions, “Raise Your Glass” is a song that everyone knows and is a great celebratory anthem. It was released in 2010, but it’s still a fantastic song.
9. “Work From Home” – Fifth Harmony Feat. Ty Dolla $ign
This was released back when Fifth Harmony still had five members, and it’s a great song even though it sounds a little bit like the Rugrats theme. It has a great beat and a fun vocal to sing along to.
8. “Hold Up” – Beyonce
We all want to be Beyoncé in this music video with the beautiful yellow dress and the baseball bat. The production credits on this song are incredible, and you can recognize Diplo’s trademark siren. This is a great song no matter what the occasion is. Now, let’s see what else we have on our list of best karaoke songs to sing on your birthday.
7. “It’s My Party” – Lesley Gore
If you want to throw it back to the ’60s, this is the song you should do it with. It’s your birthday party and you can sing “It’s My Party” if you want to.
6. “In da Club” – 50 Cent
“In da Club” is a must-have song on any playlist, and if you want to change it up for your karaoke game, give this one a try. 50 Cent’s early-2000s work is some of the most iconic in music and this song is definitely one of the best karaoke songs to sing on your birthday.
5. “Birthday” – Katy Perry
Katy Perry released this song from her fourth studio album “Prism” back in 2013. It was a huge success and pretty fitting to sing for a birthday party.
4. “Party Rock Anthem” – LMFAO
I have to be honest and say I really hate this song and if I heard it at a party I would physically leave the building, but I’ll admit that it’s a popular song that will get most crowds excited. It was a huge hit back in 2011.
3. “Birthday” – The Beatles
For The Beatles fans, there’s always “Birthday” to celebrate your birthday. It was released all the way back in 1968, but it’s a classic and it’s only fitting that you sing it for your own birthday party.
2. “Good Feeling” – Flo Rida
Any Flo Rida song is going to be a good Flo Rida song when it comes to a party. “Good Feeling” was a hit when it was released in 2012 and it continues to be a great song on any party playlist.
1. “Happy Birthday” – Altered Images
Of course, we have to mention “Happy Birthday” by Altered Images. Whether you’re singing it to yourself or having your friends sing it to you, it’s imperative that you add it to your playlist. It also appeared in the movie Sixteen Candles, so it’s clearly a birthday classic.
That concludes our list of the best karaoke songs to sing on your birthday. Make sure to add them to your party playlist to make a good time even better.
