1. The Foundations - Build Me Up Buttercup
This song will promise to do two things: make everyone feel super happy, and make you sound pretty decent at singing.
2. Billy Ray Cyrus - Achy Breaky Heart
Do as Billy does and just sing super low with a slight lazy twang. Sorted.
3. Madness - Baggy Trousers
There's absolutely no way to ruin this song, mainly because it's just talking with a backing track!
4. Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy
Once again, it's practically just talking. Also, the repetition here will make it easy to stay in the same key until the end.
5. The Clash - Should I Stay Or Should I Go
This one just requires a bit of anarchist attitude to nail. Not much vocal range going on, so tackle it fearlessly.
6. Billy Joel - Uptown Girl
Bringing all the cheesy factor that a cheese counter can offer, Uptown Girl goes at an easy pace to keep up with.
7. Spice Girls - Wannabe
To put it bluntly: if Ginger Spice can sing it and make Wannabe a smash hit, so can you. Zig a zig ah!
8. Blur - Country House
Oh, this is easy: act like you've just woken up from a nap and feel a bit fuzzy and disorientated; then you'll sing Blur like Damon Albarn himself!
9. Ian Dury & The Blockheads - Hit Me With A Rhythm Stick
What a classic. Luckily, it's also damn easy to sing too. You can literally talk your way through it.
10. Culture Club - Karma Chamelon
Boy George, we heart you for this song. We can sing it, dance to it and even shout it if we so desire.
11. Johnny Cash - Ring Of Fire
It's a little known fact that ANY Johnny Cash song is perfect for karaoke beginners.
12. Joan Jett - I Love Rock 'n' Roll
Ahhhh, an absolute 24 carat banger! Give this one all the lungs you can offer with some sass thrown in for good measure and voila, instant rock 'n' roll royalty.
13. Taylor Swift - Shake It Off
The two words 'Taylor Swift' may panic you, but fear not. The repetition of this number allows you to just say words over and over and over... and over.
14. Lisa Loeb - Stay
It's slower than you think, and it is that kind of song that will immediately make your friends exclaim 'OMG I loved this track!' so you're onto a guaranteed winner.
15. Vanessa Carlton - A Thousand Miles
There's a reason this song is often used to learn how to play piano. It's simple and clean.
16. Blink 182 - All The Small Things
If you half-sing through your nose and half-shout the lyrics, you'll absolutely nail this.
17. B-52's - Love Shack
One guy + one girl + one easy song to sing = one awesome karaoke duet. Rock Lobster is another great pick from the B-52s for easy singing.
18. The Beatles - Hey Jude
Another track that will have everyone joining in from the get go, taking all the pressure off your vocal ability. But even solo, you'll rock this as it's slow enough for you to pretend like you know what you're doing.
19. Destiny's Child - Say My Name
Best performed with your full girl squad in tow – this song is surprisingly easy to smash out as it's 80% talk-singing. If you can do a Destiny's tune, you're laughing!
20. ABBA - Mamma Mia
The vocal range is low and the key changes are rare, making this tune easy to slay on the mic. Plus, people will love you for this song choice. Double win!
