Hit me with your best shot

Karaoke nights are spontaneous pockets of silliness where you play at being the star and your nearest and dearest are merely victims of your 1980s flashback.

Chicago’s If You Leave Me Now with all its fevered innuendoes of youth, love and abandonment, is one of those karaoke moments many of us have had, and would rather forget. The sounds of the song’s opening chords can immediately wind us back to a time when we found ourselves on stage serenading a lover or a friend, possibly even shedding an embarrassed tear or two along the way.

The glory, fight and rivalry of Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger are delivered best when we punch out the lyrics with passion, while the Righteous Brothers’ You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ is a cheesy heart-warmer for those who are into sloppy love songs. Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around by Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks, or Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers singing Islands in the Stream are popular choices for couples and drunken best friends and heck, they’re even worth singing with a stranger.

Karaoke nights are about letting loose and channelling the inner wild-child. And so that everyone can enjoy your uninhibited ways, they’re enjoyed most when everyone’s had a few drinks.
