There's nothing like belting out a tune in the wee hours of the morning in a room with no windows and a selection of your nearest and dearest!
Karaoke is one of our favourite past times (often drunken) and there's absolutely no shame in pretending to be a star for 3-5 minutes.
Ask most people and there's a good chance they've got at least one song in their repertoire ready to go at a moment's notice when it's karaoke time.
Some prefer a soft, slow song, while others get around a power ballad. And then there's those of us who just like a good guitar solo or those who love duets when they sing karaoke.
While the sky is the limit when it comes to good karaoke songs, we have put our heads together to create the ultimate list of best karaoke songs for your next night out without the kids.
Even if you don't want to go out, there are heaps of karaoke versions of songs with lyrics on Youtube or online which are so easy to download!
