For centuries, men have used music to express their love and seduce women who prefer a cultured gentlemen not afraid to show off his talents. Writing music and learning to play instruments can be time consuming and expensive. Thankfully there is a cure for this affliction, the karaoke machine, which can give you the rock star feeling any night of the week.
The likes of AC/DC and Metallica are popular amongst the blokes, but if you’re looking to woo a young sweetheart you’re going to have to sing something that’ll really set the mood. Here is a list of some of the tried and tested karaoke songs sung by our brothers before us that’ll put all eyes in the pub on you.
1.’ Sweet Child Of Mine’ by Guns N’ Roses
If your looking to attract a general crowd then the always-favourite ‘Sweet Child Of Mine’ is for you. Not the easiest song to sing, but one that everybody knows. Reaching the highs and lows of Axl Rose is not a simple task, but neither is getting up in front of a room of strangers. This song was an instant karaoke hit the moment it was released and if you have a real appetite for destruction and gut full of beer this song is yours.
2. Taylor Swift
It’s true, girls like sensitive guys. If you want to cry out to everyone in the pub that you’re a SNAG, then give Taylor Swift a go. Songs such as ‘You Belong With Me’, ‘Love Story’ and ‘Shake It Off’ show that you’re not just a head banger but also a man who understands what it’s like being a teenage girl. If you’ve got what it takes to get up in front of your mates and sing one of pop classics you probably have a lot of confidence and are not afraid to show off your other side.
3. ‘Livin On A Prayer’ by Bon Jovi
If you feel like shouting to the Heavens, then a little Bon Jovi never goes astray. ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ is engraved word to word on everyone’s mind and people can’t help, but get up and sing this whenever it comes on. This song works best for the karaoke beginner, as everyone in the pub will be singing as loud as you it doesn’t matter if you screw up, just get that chorus right! Jon Bon Jovi was a sexy man and with this classic you can be too.
4. ‘The Gambler’ by Kenny Rogers
When it’s getting late in the evening and the music’s slowing down then go with the flow and bring out The Gambler. One of Kenny Rogers’ masterpieces, up there with his chicken and always perfect hair, this song is another classic that gets toes tapping. If your friends are singing GNR or Tay Tay and you just can’t get your voice up their then lower it down, along with the lights, and bust out this chink of Americana.
5. ‘Cherry Pie’ by Warrant
If all else fails, then there’s one song that’ll let everyone know you’re in the mood for lovin. Warrant’s ‘Cherry Pie’ evokes imagery too hard to describe. When you want to make your intentions clear, then this chant will get the wild ones up and shaking.
