5 Fail-Safe Karaoke Songs for Girls' Night Out

You’ve got your Skinnygirl cocktail in hand and your party dress on -- now what should you sing when you’re doing karaoke with your best girls?

In honor of National Karaoke Week, we present five upbeat standbys that all have choruses you can really belt out -- and you don’t need to be a great singer to nail them. It’s all about spirit, so grab the mic and, above all else, have a good time -- no boys allowed!

1. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Cyndi Lauper

Yep, it's the go-to song for bachelorette parties, but there's a reason why: It's fun as all get-out. Sing it with gusto, because the title is spot-on -- especially when you're out with your ladyfriends.

2. Material Girl, Madonna

Maybe greed isn't good, but this song sure is. The best part is that your whole crew will know the chorus -- and do the little high-pitched "ha!" before the verses. Laughter is pretty much guaranteed.

3. All the Single Ladies, Beyoncé

A modern call to action that's as undeniably catchy for coupled women as it is for singletons. Encourage your crew to emulate Bey and her dancers (or at least get close!) by showing off a few cool moves. Everyone knows that sleek video by heart.

4. Dancing Queen, ABBA

This tune is a classic for a reason. Just try to listen to it without busting a move. Cue the music, and you've got a fab disco party in a karaoke bar.

5. California Gurls, Katy Perry

That sweet Cali vibe that Katy's known for makes this song a perfect pick for crooning with your posse. Definitely attempt the yodel-esque "oh-oh-oh-oh" part, and don't worry if you're not perfect -- on girls' night, all that matters is the QT you spend with your gals.
