The internet has a wrap-up list for every thing you did or maybe forgot to do in 2014. Like me, you may well have forgotten that karaoke is a cool fun-time activity that people around the world love, but lucky for us the facilitators of online karaoke Lucky Voice did not.
Here are the top 10 karaoke tunes that the people of earth sang along to in the year that was.
10. Jolene – Dolly Parton
I always wished my name was Jolene. Despite the fact she is flirting with Dolly Parton’s partner, breaking the #ladycode.
9. Livin’ On A Prayer – Bon Jovi
We’re less than half way there – but it’s a contemporary classic. ps, Jon: it DOES make a difference if we make it or not. But it does’t make a difference to the song if you sing it that way.
8. Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey
People have yet to stop believing in Journey, it seems.
7. Summer Nights – John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John
Apparently, the people of 2014 aren’t over this late 70s musical about high school life in the 1950s.
6. Make You Feel My Love – Adele
5. Rather Be – Clean Bandit
I am not sure what this is.
4. Someone Like You – Adele
People have a lot of feelings.
3. Roar – Katy Perry
I feel like KP is probably into karaoke.
2. Happy – Pharrell Williams
Is it any surprise that people are happy to sing this catchy pop song?
1. Let It Go – Idina Menzel/Demi Lovato
Because of course it is. This earworm from the hit Disney film Frozen was everywhere last year and accounted for 15 per cent of the 3.5 million songs sung by Lucky Voice users.
Good luck escaping it, 2015.
It’s hot. It’s a new year. Embrace your inner superstar and have a sing-along while you swelter. You know you want to.
