Karaoke nights are our most favorite events of the year. Because Christmas may have all those jingle bells, Thanksgiving may give us a taste of that turkey, and even Easter may boost up our spirits. But let’s be honest here. Karaoke nights are the one and only thing we actually look forward to.
So imagine this. You’re holding a karaoke night, and all of your friends are excited about it. But then you realize: you have no decent karaoke software. That cheap run-of-the-mill app that you downloaded from some shady mirror of the Apple Store has bailed out on you. What do you do?
For situations like this, we have jotted down the pointers to keep in mind when choosing a karaoke software.
Imagine how embarrassing it would be if, in front of all your guests, you find out that that cheap karaoke software only has two to three songs on it. We love a good library. Which is why it is important to ensure that the software has a vast variety of songs.
For us, pop songs are the best for the occasion. Slow songs rarely set the mood, but can be quite fun and romantic to hear, especially in a duet. Classic rock is always a party favorite. But don’t forget about electro-pop, because who can enjoy a party without that?
In short, make sure that the software you use has a medium amount of songs in it.
Yes, we couldn’t think of anything else. Some software is actually pretty lame when it comes to displaying the correct lyrics. Make sure that the software you are using is from a trusted brand, so you know that all the songs in it will have the correct lyrics.
Even if you don’t though, that’ll still be pretty funny. Imagine your best friend Jeffry passionately singing the wrong lyrics to a song. That’ll be one hell of a blast.
Price (Or No Price).
Some karaoke software come with a price, and some don’t. If you’re like us, we prefer everything cheap and free. Free apps are quite possibly the best things on the App Store. However, if you plan on buying a software just make sure that they have a decent redeeming policy, and be sure not to spend too much. Although some come with a price, many aren’t worth the extra cash.
Our Top Picks:
From what we’ve heard on the internet, and from what we’ve tried out ourselves, we found the following five most advanced karaoke player software to be the most reliable and trustworthy out there:
- PC DJ Karaoke.
- Karaoke 5.
- Kanto Player.
Most of these software work on PCs or laptop computers. A great number can be downloaded on your phone from the App Store, although some may be a bit costly, Always remember to read the reviews before downloading an app, especially if you’re paying for it.
There isn’t much to conclude here. All we can say is that a karaoke night is ten times better than sitting at home, watching Netflix, or snoozing off till the dreaded sunrise comes.
We love a night out with our friends at some fancy bar or restaurant, but we like it even better when we’re doing nothing more than just sitting back and enjoying a good singing contest
