For wannabes contemplating karaoke, Entertainment Weekly advises staying away from "high notes, low notes, slow songs and long drawn-out solos."
The following songs are good:
"Staying Alive: Even the Rolling Rock-impaired can manage two words and the finger-pointing choreography."
I Want to Hold Your Hand: "Go silent on the word "hand' and you'll bring down the house."
The following songs are not good:
Girls Just Want to Have Fun: "Before even considering this, just ask yourself, "Where is Cyndi Lauper now?' "
Blowin' in the Wind: "Consider a tune officially put to rest if it has been sung by Gomer Pyle."
