My (unedited) personal karaoke list

Those who know me well know I love me some karaoke. In fact, I think about karaoke all the time. When I am in an elevator, I hear a piece of muzak that reminds me that Air Supply, in the right context, is a very good thing. Or I reflect on how SuperTramp is deeply underrated. Or bemoan that the youth of today are woefully under-educated about the brilliance of Pat Benatar.

Of course, Glee has brought Journey back into the mainstream collective consciousness, and for that I am grateful. Still, if you peruse the list below which I carry around with my on my iPhone and add to fairly regularly, there are so many other songs that are calling to me, calling to me, calling to me.....

I created this list because when I find myself in a karaoke context (ideally a private room with friends and lots of liquor), I get so overwhelmed with joy, excitement and anticipation that I sometimes am stumped by what to sing. This list instantly jogs my memory and ensures that the hits will keep on rolling. I'd love to hear any suggested additions in comments....

Edge of 17
Part of your world
Don't pull your love out on me (BJ Thomas)
Touch me in the morning
Tempting by the fruit of another
Lady marmalade
Paradise by the dashboard light
Baby, come to me
View to a kill
Magic (cars)
White wedding
I am woman hear me roar
I've been to paradise
Top of the world
Here I am (air supply)
Crazy little thing called love
How deep is your love
Killing me softly
Hello (lionel ritchie)
Making love out of nothing at all
Against all odds
Bohemian rhapsody
I feel the earth move under my feet
Midnight at the oasis
Its too late
Then came you
Hard to handle
Heaven is a place on earth
Love is a battlefield
Your smiling face
What it takes (aerosmith)
Haircut 100
Book of love
Come on and groove me
I can't hold back
Simply red
Bennie and the jets
Born to run
Train in vain
Mambo itIano
Sail on
Give a little bit
Logical song
You're so vain
Islands in the stream
Total eclipse of the heart
Reo speedwagon
Keep forgettin' (Michael mcdonald)
Harden my heart
Journey: faithfully
You've got the best of my love
You give love a bad name
Every rose has it's torn
Leather and lace
Don't let the sun go down on me
You better be good to me
Rich girl
You can count me (Jefferson airplane)
Last night (5th dimension)
Last dance (Donna summer)
