Best Sing-Along Party Songs



banner_singoff_smSONG CHOICE:

I’ve Had the Time of

My Life

There are songs that when played, you just can’t help but sing along (good voice or not)!

Those are the songs you want to download when hosting a Sing-Along Party around a fire pit, campfire, deck, living room or back yard — especially if you’re not lucky enough to have a guitarist or keyboardist on hand.

If you’ve read through this site, you know the benefits of singing together!

My own Top 100 Multi-Generational Sing-Along Party Song List represents several decades, beginning in the 1950s, and genres as well.  They’re also songs that most people will know.

They are listed in no particular order or decade!

Further down the page, I’ve included some Country songs as well as sing-along classics that won’t need recorded music.
