'Total Eclipse of the Heart'. 'Rock Lobster'. 'Someone Like You'. 'Man! I Feel Like a Woman!'. What do these songs have in common? They're all A-grade songs – weapons, if you will – that will help you absolutely slay your next karaoke set and leave your fellow singers gasping. We've chosen our favourite places to let loose, mic in hand, from private rooms to public bars. 

While you're at your most confident, head over to our favourite bars for dancing, or try your luck at Melbourne's best pick-up bars.
