The Three Basic Rules of Karaoke

Karaoke is one of the most popular and effective ways to bring a group of people together for a party or a gathering. Not only is it fun to share a musical experience together, but participants also get the opportunity to bust out their favorite songs for everyone to hear. Whether you’re a gifted singer, or your voice is best reserved for the shower and small settings, karaoke is a fun event to participate in, as long as you follow some simple guidelines.

Know the Song

One of the first rules of karaoke is simple, but often forgotten, and it is that if you are singing, you should know the song relatively well. Of course, the karaoke machine will help you out with some of the lesser known verses and help refresh your memory, but a basic level of familiarity with the song should be a requirement for singing it. Nothing is more awkward than going to sing along with a song only to realize you don’t know it as well as you thought, and having to mumble the lyrics or read frantically. Avoid that situation by having a few favorites you know back to front and can bust out at any time.

Keep the Songs Familiar and Standard

When it’s your time to shine with the karaoke machine, you have the full lay of the land, and the ability to pick any song you so choose. It is important to use this power wisely and pick a tune that won’t leave the rest of the room bewildered. You may be the biggest Led Zeppelin fan in the world, but do you really need to sing along to all eight minutes of “Stairway to Heaven” and awkwardly stand there during the long guitar solo? Probably not. Try to keep the songs shorter and more widely known, as it helps keep everyone enjoying the event together.

Don’t Double Dip

One of the basic rules of karaoke is also a basic rule of party food: no double dipping. Simply put, sing your song and go sit back down. Even if the circumstances are perfect, you’re feeling the music, all your friends are cheering you on, and you’re having the time of your life, karaoke has a strict one song maximum before passing on the mic to another person. Simply be polite, wait your turn, and deliver a beautiful karaoke performance when your turn comes around again.
