For the times where you’re singing somewhere that’s not your shower, you might want to try out one of the easiest songs to sing that sound impressive.
The most annoying people in the world are the ones who try really, really, really hard to sound amazing at karaoke night. I’m sure in some scenarios, like High School Musical, for example, singing well is important and will lead you to a great movie and/or relationship. In any other circumstance, when it’s 1:30 in the morning at a bar, I don’t need to hear you trying to hit the Mariah Carey whistle note thinking you invented singing. For me, karaoke is supposed to be a fun opportunity to not care how you sound and enjoy time with your friends. There are some of us who just can’t help but sound incredible every single time we open our mouths, but I digress. Record producers aren’t at the karaoke bar, so feel free to just drunkenly scream the lyrics to “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls.
That being said, if there’s a special someone in the bar that you’re trying to impress and you want to get their attention in a simple way, it might behoove you to pick something easy that will suit your voice no matter what. The great thing about that is most karaoke songs are really popular and common, so no matter what state of intoxication you’re in you’re likely to not forget the words and sound completely ridiculous. If you’re not comfortable with the spotlight shining on just you, you should take a look at some of the best karaoke songs for groups. Rally together a bunch of your friends and belt out some tunes!
In order to create this list of easiest songs to sing that sound impressive, we found help from websites like Lucky Voice Karaoke, XO Jane, and Take Lessons. Quantifying the difficulty of a song isn’t really an easy process because this is something that varies from person to person, but these are just some recommendations that spanned across all sources. I’m sure you’ll recognize quite a few of these songs, which just further asserts that they should be easy to sing.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the easiest songs to sing that sound impressive.
21. TLC, “No Scrubs”
This is an iconic jam and a timeless classic. You will absolutely get the audience singing along and pumped up the second the opening notes begin.
20. Blink-182, “All The Small Things”
I have a feeling that this is the Blink-182 song that The Chainsmokers and Halsey beat to death in Tuscon. This is a jam no matter what genre of music you love. Tom Delonge’s vocal is kind of fun to mimic and the satirical lyrics will make this a fun song to sing.
19. No Doubt, “Spiderwebs”
There is no doubt that “Spiderwebs” will be a great choice for anyone. The beat and music do the heavy lifting, so the vocal is fairly easy to fit in there.
18. Everclear, “Wonderful”
The vocal in “Wonderful” is mild and simplistic despite it being vocal heavy, so you should have no problem singing along.
17. Nancy Sinatra, “These Boots Are Made for Walking”
This song requires a bit of a lower vocal range, but I’m sure you all know the lyrics, which means it’s not going to be a problem to remember them all.
16. Yeah Yeah Yeahs, “Maps”
“Maps” has hardly any lyrics, so if you’re trying to keep it simple, this will be your go-to option.
15. Lisa Loeb, “Stay”
Lisa Loeb is a crowd pleaser, and “Stay” has a great sing/talk combination that will make it pretty easy to sing.
14. Blur, “Country House”
If you want to sing “Country House,” you just have to replicate that dizzy, disoriented feeling you have right after you wake up. That’s how easy it is to pull off this vocal.
13. All Saints, “Never Ever”
This song has a pretty slow tempo where you can learn the lyrics as you go. It exerts attitude, sass, and energy. It’s definitely one of the easiest songs to sing that sound impressive.
12. The Proclaimers, “500 Miles”
If you don’t know this song, you better learn it because I’m certain most people in the world do. It’s a fun time and it’s more fun when you replicate the cheeky Scottish accent.
11. NSYNC, “It’s Gonna Be Me”
Now that April is drawing to a close, “It’s Gonna Be Me” is once again relevant, not that we could ever forget about this iconic bop. Everyone will join in with you on this one and it’s great for singalong events.
10. Destiny’s Child, “Say My Name”
We all want to be Beyoncé, and with this song, you can try really hard if you want to. It’s high energy and everyone knows the words.
9. Meredith Brooks, “Bitch”
Meredith Brooks has a fairly simple vocal on this song, and it has a great message about being just a human, not as good as the angel nor bad as the devil.
8. Montell Jordan, “This Is How We Do It”
I literally only know the “this is how we do it” lyric in this song, which is the title, so that doesn’t really say much. The point is, though, everyone knows the beat and will dance and sing along as much as they can.
7. Chumbawamba, “Tubthumping”
This is the greatest song to scream at the top of your lungs and it’s a hit among parties. It’s iconic and the fact that you likely already know the lyrics means it’s easy to sing.
6. Jimmy Eat World, “The Middle”
This is an easy song to pull off because it doesn’t have a terribly challenging vocal or difficult lyrics. It’s also a great song that will definitely get the crowd going.
5. Des’ree, “You Gotta Be”
There’s not much variation or high notes to sing with this song that ranks 5th on our list of easiest songs to sing that sound impressive, but the rhythm is great, the message is strong, and it sounds impressive no matter how you sing it.
4. Pulp, “Common People”
This isn’t really your typical solo since it’s meant to be sung by a few people, but you can get away with singing by yourself and hope people join in with you.
3. Fleetwood Mac, “Dreams”
Players only love you when you’re playing and singers only love you when you’re singing “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac, the number three on the list of easiest songs to sing that sound impressive. It has a great melody and it’s simple to sing along. I’m sure you already know this song, too.
2. The Waitresses, “I Know What Boys Like”
Patty Donahue proves that you can come out on top as a great singer even with less-than-perfect vocals. This means that this song is a great choice because it’s hard to mess it up.
1. The Champs, “Tequila!”
“Tequila” basically has just one word you have to sing, so if you’re still in doubt about any other song on this list, you’ll always have tequila. Drink a bunch and sing along to this tune and you’ll likely have the whole crowd joining in.
That concludes our list of the easiest songs to sing that sound impressive. If you’re looking for a tune to belt out on your next night out, let one of these excellent songs be the one you choose.
