“And Iiiiii will always loooove youuuuuu…..”- if you know you won’t ever be able to pull this off without the neighborhood cats running for their (nine) lives, it’s time to check out 16 easy songs to sing that make you sound good.
Firstly, let’s start by stressing that the songs we have in mind do not fall into the categories such as “best karaoke songs if you can’t sing,” or “easy songs to sing for bad singers.” If you wish to find some great and easy karaoke songs for beginners, feel free to visit our article on best karaoke songs for people who can’t sing. Why do we have to make a difference right away? The truth is that karaoke singing and singing on your own is as different as chalk and cheese. For karaoke singers, there are several helpful facts that you probably won’t have. Number one, if you choose a song that is a crowd pleaser, your work is done. No matter how croaked or high pitched your voice is, by singing a crowd-pleasing karaoke song everyone will soon join in, and no one will even remember the sound of your voice. You’ll just get a lot of applause and pat on the back. Secondly, there is always background music for karaoke, whereas your bathroom tiles emit no sound at all (if everything is OK with the plumbing). Last, but not the least, even if you accidentally didn’t pick one of easy karaoke songs for bad singers, you can always count on your audience to be slightly intoxicated. Or that you are feeling a bit tipsy yourself, so you can always blame bad singing on the alcohol. Either way, you can find an excuse for an embarrassing performance. But what excuse can you provide when you (and your audience, if any) are dead sober?
Luckily, we are here to help you with the list of easy songs to sing that sound impressive. Next time you open your mouth in an attempt to sound good, you won’t be faced with cringing or raised eyebrows. Bear in mind these aren’t easy songs to sing for auditions. They are much simpler and a lot easier to sing than something fairly good singers prepare. Whether your ambitions are just to enjoy in your own voice a bit more while doing some chores around the house, sitting in the traffic jam, or there actually is someone special in your life you’d like to impress (spoiler alert: love songs ahead), you can be rest assured you’ll be able to achieve it with our easy songs to sing that make you sound good.
Here is how we got to our list. As we have mentioned before, we utterly ignored all suggestions for easy karaoke songs for bad singers and focused only on expert advice on songs that should be fairly easy to perform out loud. Therefore, we checked Melodyful, Singing Exercises, How Can You Sing Better and the Huffington Post. Initially our goal was to find the songs that occurred with two or more sources. However, despite the huge number of songs on offer, very few coincided, so we had to introduce some additional parameters for ranking. The songs had to be fairly popular because if you have heard them hundreds of times that certainly facilitates the singing process. Knowing when to raise or lower your voice definitely helps. Secondly, if the song generally sounds more like talking than singing, it was a sign a good candidate. However, we excluded songs with choruses that require singing extremely high notes, or with sudden variations that make you sing at the top of your voice (because no one knows how those notes may turn out). Most of the songs have an easy melody for humming, i.e., singing. The list comprises songs for girls and guys, and some songs that are originally sung by males can actually be performed by female vocals, too. By the way, some of them can qualify as songs to sing at a wedding to the bride and groom, so if you have that heavy task in front of you, don’t worry. We’ve got just the right ones for you to sing and not make a complete fool out of yourself.
Therefore, let’s cut the chase and start singing! Here are 16 easy songs to sing that make you sound good (and feel good, for that matter), whether you are searching for the easy songs to sing for guys or easy karaoke songs for females. They are given in random order, and you’ve also got videos with lyrics. Enjoy!
