I don't want to pore thru those huge karaoke books to find songs I can sing, or have to just stick with one or two tried-and-true artists. I would like to make a list of songs that I can sing...mostly with female singers (guy's songs are usually pitched too low), and mostly familiar (I don't want to take too much time learning new songs I've never heard of and may or may not like.)
I pretty much have a Susan Boyle-type voice, so I can sing whatever she sings. I have done Linda Rondstadt, the Beatles, the Cranberries, Anne Murray, Suzie Boggus and probably some other female country singers. I don't quite have the aggressiveness to do Nancy Wilson (from Heart) or Pat Benatar. I can't do Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac either. I could probably sort of do Barbra Streisand. Ooh, ooh...I did Brooks & Dunn's "My Maria" once. That was fun!
I would prefer to have a list of particular songs, not just artists.
These don't have to all be songs that are in karaoke books. I would also like to have a list at hand, or on my Ipod, of songs that I would enjoy singing around the house to keep in lively spirits and keep my voice in good shape. Songs from musicals work (again, I have limited familiarity, although I am slowly working on it). Simple opera arias would also work. (No hip-hop plz)
