Help me pick out an awesome song to sing at Karaoke!

Occasionally there comes a time when I must perform a karaoke song.
Last night at a work function I had to perform. I love to sing and I actually have a pretty voice, mostly alto, but I can do soprano. What I usually sing is Springsteen, in the car, at the top of my voice.
So I'm in the bar, with a Dark and Stormy in me and I decide to belt out "Born to Run". Now I negotiated the lyrics perfectly, but the tune! So FLAT!!! OMG!
I knew after the first line that I was in over my head. WHY? What made me choose a song that's notoriously hard to sing?
It dawned on me that most people have one go-to karaoke song. Something that's crowd-pleasing and that fits their voice.
Help me find that song! What song can I perfect so that if I'm ever called upon to sing again, that I can get up there, sing it decently, have folks cheer me on and not be admired for my balls, but for giving a good performance?
