Whether it’s your guilty pleasure or shameless therapy, karaoke can definitely take it’s hold on you. Belting out a classic tune to friends and strangers is a fun icebreaker for pretty much everyone involved. We asked around the warehouse to find out what some of our co-worker’s favorite karaoke tunes are, and one thing is for sure, classic 70’s and 80’s songs are in!
“Love Shack” by The B-52’s.
“It can be a duet, which is really nice, ” says Tyler in graphics.
“Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey.
(Apparently Kellen and Amy have been known to duet on this one!).
“Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen.
Brittani says “It’s really fun to try to hit the high notes like Freddy Mercury, but you never can”.
“Faith” by George Michael.
Valerie says she’ll do “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond on occasion as well.
“Careless Whisper” by George Michael (During the Wham! years).
My boyfriend and I literally drew a crowd of belly-laughing onlookers last time we performed this one!
“Rebel Yell” by Billy Idol.
Matt (aka Joaquin) was a little reluctant to pick, but after admitting that his father hosts karaoke, he finally went with this quintessential 80’s tune.
“You’re So Vain” by Carly Simon.
I have got to see the lovely Kathleen perform this one! Hoots!
Ok, now fess up!
What tune steals your heart and gets you onstage?
