“The New Year”

We’ve all sung a round of Auld Lang Syne (well, if anyone actually knows the words) and rung in a new year! Welcome 2011!

Now let’s take a minute to look back at the last year…in karaoke!

The top 7 karaoke songs from 2010, in random order*

*according to what I heard in the many many many nights out last year! 🙂

1. Tik Tok by Ke$ha – I must admit I’m not really a fan of Ke$ha, and I think the “$” in her name is dumb. But I just can’t help but seat dance, or even ACTUALLY dance, when someone rocks this one at karaoke. Also of note, some of the best performances of this song have been by dudes. Sing it guys!

2. F**k You by Cee Lo Green – This song certainly became an Internet phenomenon overnight and it wasn’t long before it was part of any good KJs selection as well. A performance by Gwyneth Paltrow on Glee solidified this song as a classic and one of the top songs from 2010.

3. Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus – It’s Hannah Montana! No, it’s Miley! Whatever. It’s bubble-gum pop for sure, but it is catchy and certainly a crowd-pleaser! Go America!

4. Airplanes by B.o.B. – If you know me at all, you know I am not the most in touch with hip hop music. So the first time I ever heard this song was actually at karaoke. It’s a great duet with a little something for everyone!

5. Rude Boy by Rihanna – Rihanna is always a popular choice at karaoke and 2010’s Rude Boy is no exception. Go ahead, sing it and get the crowd movin’!

6. Hey, Soul Sister by Train – This song may be a bit played out since it seems like it was everywhere in 2010, but it is still a fun song.

7. Bad Romance by Lady Gaga – Or really any Lady Gaga song! I tried to dislike her. I did. But I just couldn’t do it! Her music gets into your head and stays there… And really, she has some of the best songs for karaoke. Both guys and girls can kill on stage rockin’ the mic to Lady Gaga!

What did I miss? What songs do you think were top of the karaoke charts in 2010? Any songs from 2010 you don’t want to hear in 2011? Share your thought in the comments!
