There are, of course, many ways to define "awesome" when it comes to karaoke, but here are some of the key attributes we're looking for:

• Readily singable lyrics with simple progressions - nothing too complex or syncopated
• Energetic, fun, recognizable choruses that inspire the room to join in
• Songs that speak to children of the 80s and 90s, whose parents raised them on the likes of the Beatles
Some examples of songs we like to sing at karaoke: Livin' On a Prayer; Iko Iko; Man Down Under; Like a Prayer; Sloop John B; Sweet Child o' Mine; I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles); Free Fallin', and many more. Hey, it's karaoke - cheese rules the day! (Just no Journey!) This is mostly a pop song/rock and roll crowd; I myself know more blues, country, folk, but I think the folks we sing with aren't going to be familiar with those types of songs.
I've scrolled through the previous karaoke questions, but haven't found anything super on point.
