The biggest decision that anyone has to make for karaoke is what song they should attempt on stage. There are literally thousands of tracks available with most karaoke sets, so it can be intimidating looking through the large book of songs, but if you keep in mind a few tips it will make your night simpler, and provide as much enjoyment as possible.
First, make sure that you select a karaoke song that suits your articulation. Whether it is your first time or 101st time, you have to check that you can achieve at least majority of the musical notes you need. If you have a low voice, there is no point of picking out artists like Celine Dion or Whitney Houston, and the same goes for high-pitch voices; Barry White should be out of the question. Alternatively choose karaoke tracks that fit within your vocal range, and that way rather of concerning about if you can hit that difficult note coming up, you will be able to loosen and just savour the song.
Selecting the correct karaoke track also depends on what you are getting up stage for. If you are with acquaintances, and looking at getting up as a group for a bit of fun, it is prudent to pick out an up-tempo song that accommodates your mood instead of a dull ballad. If you are a regular, and want to take something a bit more challenging, there is nothing bad in choosing a slower song if you can manage it.
If you’re celebrating an adult / older folks birthday with a karaoke party. You need to recognize what songs to choose. Do your prep. You don’t want to take any old karaoke song; you need to pick out karaoke music that arouses a sense of nostalgia. Find out what songs were hot when the party honoree grew up. Your greatest bet is to find the top 10 songs of each year or decade and construct your play list round those karaoke songs.
But a little tip to remember about most karaoke bars is that most people are out to have a great time, so selecting a slow and sombre song that does not genuinely fit the ambiance of the room can have sharp results.
Ultimately, when choosing your karaoke track it is optimal to find a song with a melody and words that you are at least intimate with. You do not have to recognise every song you get up stage for off by heart (thats why the TVs are there to help you) but choosing a karaoke song that you have listened more than once or twice will give you a bit more confidence in singing on stage.
