What songs have interchangeable accompaniments?

Let's say you want to request one song while doing karaoke. Once you get up there, you surprise and delight your friends by belting out a different tune, yet the chords behind it still match. Which songs work that way?

Karaoke and karaoke rental in Boston

I'm getting married in Boston next month. We'd like to rent a karaoke machine instead of doing the standard DJ/dance thing. I know that many regard DoReMi Karaoke the best place in Boston, but I called them yesterday and they said their rental karaoke machines are out of order. They asked me to call back closer to the wedding date because they don't know how quickly they'll be getting them fixed, or even if they want to. Uh oh, I don't have any backup options! MeFi Bostonians, I need your help! [more inside]

"Hay Una Uncion Aqui" - Karaoke Track?

I am trying to find a "karaoke track" for the song "Hay Una Uncion Aqui" by Danny Berrios, which is (apparently) a Spanish language contemporary Christian song (a student of mine needs it for a talent show).

Best sing-along version of the Star Spangled Banner?

I need to provide a recorded version (audio only) of The Star Spangled Banner for a bunch of patriotic middle-aged to elderly women to sing-along with at the opening ceremonies of a convention. Can anyone point me to a good version that isn't just an instrumental and isn't too showy? Whitney Houston's is probably way beyond the average vocal range for this group.

Why won't my Karaoke mixer mix mics?

I recently received a Arirang AR-36K karaoke machine. I have hooked it up to my TV and receiver, which has ports only for stereo sound from this input. It has two ports on the front for microphones, which I've plugged in; however, the sound input from the mics isn't mixed into the sound output. I know that the input is actually happening, because the on-screen display reacts to my (terrible) singing, but it just doesn't get mixed -- and the menu option to turn up the microphone volume simply doesn't work (it gives the "command not allowed" icon whenever I press any button on the requisite screen). The hardware microphone volume knobs seem to have no effect, either. Any ideas?

Is this a good goal?

I have a personal goal to do karaoke in the future. It's not because I enjoy making a spectacle of myself in public or want to show off my singing voice (to the contrary!), it's because I currently have severe social phobia. I think doing something that anxiety-inducing would be a great stepping stone and I'd also like to use that hopefully positive experience as a marker for how far I've come. What songs would suit an otherwise mediocre female voice that surprisingly sounds decent singing There Is A Light That Never Goes Out by The Smiths and most of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen? I'd prefer if the songs are available on your average bar's jukebox, but feel free to suggest obscure songs. Genre does not matter.

Bring the Karaoke Box home!

I've caught karaoke fever. What are my best options for a karaoke player setup at home? I'm looking for more of a karaoke box setup where participants are able to enter a number on a remote to add a song to the queue or to use a laptop to remotely add songs, rather than a bar-style KJ setup that needs maintenance. Would be interested in either software or hardware solutions <$200. I can figure out the audio, but the software options are vexing!
