Here's a fact for you: People like singing together. Always have. From an elegant croonfest around a piano or a down-home sing-along by a campfire to a hands-in-the-air church celebration or, hell, some kind of weird medieval lute-accompanied ceremony we can but dream of, singing together is a thing humans are into. So it makes sense that karaoke is among the world's most loved leisure activities. Done right, karaoke can be hilarious ("Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" by Wham!), romantic (Al Green's "Let's Stay Together"), cute ("Happy" by Pharrell Williams), epic, joyous, sentimental and, of course, drunk. We've put together a playlist of the greatest karaoke songs available to humans and sequenced them for a pitch-perfect karaoke experience featuring party songs, breakup songs, hip-hop hits, rock anthems and duets. We guarantee you no energy slumps or boredom breaks here—just top-notch sing-yer-heart-out goodness. So grab the mike, knock back your drink and panic-eat a handful of chips in one mouthful: It's time to take the stage, tiger.
