Top Karaoke Songs of All Time

Karaoke was introduced in Japan as a form of therapy, and as a way of expressing oneself in a society bound by restrictions on individual expression. What started off as therapy has now become a major universal source of entertainment. Even so, in an underlying way it does remain therapeutic, as it lets loose the inner wild side of an individual that has always craved to be a singer. Melodyful brings to you some great songs you can croon at Karaoke Night!

Music and singing is a love that is manifested in every heart. We're always humming, while walking, while working, on our way to work, in the elevator, and suddenly, we transform into rock stars in the bathroom. We sing when we're happy, a gloomy song plays in our head when we're sad. We know a song to describe almost every situation in our lives. We don't have to be perfect singers.

That is what karaoke is all about. In fact, the accompanying alcohol at karaoke bars enables us to forget all that we fear; mainly large audiences, and become the rock stars we all secretly desire to be. In the next section, we give you different lists for some of the best karaoke songs of all time.
