Another year has passed, so it’s a good time to review the year and see which songs top the sales of the year 2011. As we mentioned in our review last year, there are similar criticisms. Ours is different because it shows what people wanted to sing last year and not just what they wanted to hear. No review can be completely accurate, but we think the following lists provide a good review of the best music that came out in 2011 that karaoke singers were requesting.
The best karaoke pop songs of 2011
# 1 – Rolling In The Deep – Adele (Many people assume that Adele is a black singer because of the sound of her voice, but she is not. What you hear from her are powerful voices with the feeling of emotion behind each note. That it’s exactly what a good singer wants from a song. The challenge for any singer with ‘Rolling In The Deep’ is to match the emotion and feeling that Adele brings to her original version. Of course, you can get away with it if you can’t. match Adele’s vocal quality and still please your audience if you’re a six-year-old singing this song with all your heart, like Alexa Narváez did on YouTube with over 13 million views today).
# 2 – Someone Like You – Adele (Yes, Adele appears with the two best pop songs of 2011. ‘Someone Like You’ tells of a person who accepts the fact that his previous lover has moved on. Better and sings that he will find a ‘someone like you’, claiming to have come to terms with the status of their breakup, but obviously revealing otherwise. Perhaps this song became so popular because most of us have been heartbroken in the same way that it is relate this song).
# 3 – Party Rock Anthem – LMFAO with Lauren Bennett & Goonrock (Well, I thought LMFAO must be a band, and possibly every letter in this group’s name represents one of its members. Man, am I ever out of the loop? LMFAO is an acronym for Laughing My Freaking Ass Off. LMFAO is actually a duo made up of Motown founder Berry Gordy’s youngest son, Stefan, aka Redfoo, and his grandson Skyler, aka SkyBlu. The song was one of the songs. popular dance songs of the year. If it’s fun to dance by then it must be fun to sing.)
# 4 – On The Floor – Jennifer Lopez & Pitbull (If anyone remembers the 1989 Lambada, they will no doubt notice the borrowed beat for the lead riff. What can we expect from J-Lo’s next big single? In The Stream ‘or’ Afternoon Delight ‘.)
# 5 – You And I – Lady Gaga (Unlike most of Lady Gaga’s tunes and perhaps a little less successful than some of Gaga’s dance songs, this tune was highly requested as a karaoke song. ‘You And I ‘is a country inspired blues and rock song and ballad that softly displays the classic Queen song’ We Will Rock You ‘).
# 6 – Moves Like Jagger – Maroon 5 with Christina Aguilera (This song has a catchy hook and was popular with the karaoke crowd, and what has made it more attractive is that it is a female / male duo.)
# 7 – Mr. Know It All – Kelly Clarkson (The original American Idol is still going strong five studio albums later. This song once again capitalizes on strong vocals and the ‘you don’t know anything about me’ hook will linger in his head long after. the last note of the song is played).
# 8 – Lighters – Bad Meets Evil & Bruno Mars (Bad Meets Evil is a duo made up of rappers Royce da 5’9 “and Eminem. This duo actually formed before Eminem gained popularity in 1999, they broke up and they have since reunited. The song ‘Lighters’ is an alternative hip-hop song, different from hard core rap, especially with the added vocals of Bruno Mars.)
# 9 – We Found Love – Rihanna (Rihanna once again hits the top of the charts with a catchy dance song. Many versions of this song also include Calvin Harris in the credits, but we haven’t heard a duet or cover version. no version featuring vocals other than Rihanna.)
# 10 – I Do – Colbie Caillat (Like Colbie Caillat’s first single, Bubbly, this song is a happy, carefree sunny day song that talks about taking relationships to the next level. A perfect tune for the upbeat romantic. ).
Mistletoe – Justin Bieber (Some people may wonder why Justin Bieber once again is not in the top 10. He also did not reach the top ten with any of his songs in 2010, possibly because although his songs have great appeal, when he does get to sing them there will be a much smaller audience. Taken together, the karaoke versions of his songs outsold any other artist in 2011, Justin Bieber was the best-selling karaoke artist of 2011. The season-ending release of ‘Mistletoe’ almost reached top 10. It was in high demand in late November and December. Many are yearning for a fresh new Christmas song and this song met that need precisely.)
The best country karaoke songs of 2011
# 1 – Dirt Road Anthem – Jason Aldean (This song talks about country life, but adds a bit of ‘country rap’ into the mix. Very popular melody and choice for karaoke singers.)
# 2 – Just Fishin ‘- Trace Adkins (This song is about a father and daughter fishing together. Another feel-good country song that pulls on the strings of your heart “).
# 3 – Country Girl (Shake It For Me) – Luke Bryan (This song is quite different from Luke Bryan’s previous hit ‘Rain Is A Good Thing’. The title should be a dead giveaway that this song is not a ballad or a fairytale song. It’s a dance tune that gets close to you and became popular and became one of the most requested country songs to sing).
# 4 – Hell On Heels – Pistol Annies (There are some songs that are country cross overs; songs that can be played on both pop charts and country charts. Not this song, it’s definitely country. Pistol Annies make a declaration of a woman’s anger, singing ‘Sugar Daddy, I’m coming for you’).
# 5 – You Lie – The Band Perry (Another country tune about an unhappy relationship. You lie down like a Persian rug, like a raccoon dog basking in the sun, like a penny in the parking lot. It seems like a lot of country songs are about That Bitter Feeling. that you have when you discover that your partner is not that important and that people love to sing about it).
# 6 – Honey Bee – Blake Shelton (This catchy tune performed well on the Billboard 100, as well as being # 1 on the country charts. The song’s sheer appeal (and the fact that people sang it) helped. to put it in the top ten of our list).
# 7 – Barefoot Blue Jean Night – Jake Owen (This song recalls the fun you had on your barefoot blue jeans night of the southern summer. Your friend Frankie got hitched on a horned Cadillac on the hood!)
# 8 – Story Of Us – Taylor Swift (an upbeat tempo song that by its title could indicate that the song would be about a happy relationship. Unfortunately, the chorus is ‘the story of us is a tragedy now’).
# 9 – This Is Country Music – Brad Paisley (Although not as commercially successful as some of Brad Paisley’s previous hits, ‘This Is Country Music’ epitomizes what many feel a country song is about. Music fans country can pride themselves that their music often has some substance to its lyrics or message, which is not the norm with a pop tune).
# 10 – Just A Kiss – Lady Antebellum (Lady Antebellum songs are very popular in the karaoke world due to their duet ability. The way Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott effortlessly change lead vocals in their original performances makes many singers want to do the same in karaoke versions. The challenge is to find two singers with the same vocal skills as the lead singers of Lady Antebellum).
So once again, another year has given us a lot of new music. So you, the karaoke singer, must stop singing the same old tune. You don’t want to subject the crowd to once again singing the same song you sing week after week, no matter how well you sing that song. There is a lot of new karaoke music to choose from. Sometimes it can seem like there is no good new music out there. However, it may seem that way because you have gotten into the habit of listening to your ‘iPod’ with your pre-selected music options. Start getting used to listening to the radio or turning on a music channel more often, then you will find many new options to choose from.
