Top 10 Karaoke Songs to Pick Up Girls

I have actually picked up a girl in a karaoke bar by singing to her. I was already quite keen on this girl, but nothing had happened between us UNTIL I invited her to a karaoke bar.

Just before I went up on stage I whispered that I was singing especially for her. It worked. I impressed her enough that she asked me out on a date and not long after we became a couple!

Admittedly that was quite a few years ago (and we did split up two months later), but I think I’ve still got it. Recently I took my girlfriend Beth to a karaoke bar in Malaysia and it was going to be the first time that she would hear me sing. And she certainly got to hear me sing. We were the only patrons in the bar, so I got to sing about twelve songs to her. Or more like serenade to her while holding hands because, as in many places in Asia, there is no stage and the microphone is brought to the table. I went for soppy love songs and I even managed to bring a tear to her eye.


Top 10 Karaoke Songs to Pick Up Girls

Here is my list of songs that I’ve tried and tested over the years, along with a few tips to help you out:

  1. Your Song – Elton John: Look them right in the eyes for this one – this brought tears to my girlfriend’s eyes.
  2. You Are So Beautiful – Joe Cocker: This is the one that got me a girlfriend many years ago.
  3. I Can’t Help Falling In Love With you – Elvis Presley:  Maybe not for the first date, but great for singing to the person you love.
  4. I’ve Got You Under My Skin– Frank Sinatra: A bit of crooning impresses the ladies!
  5. The Long and Winding Road– The Beatles: Not quite a love song, but if you can sing a Beatles song well, you’ll impress.
  6. I Want Your Sex – George Michael: Yes, well…um.
  7. You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me – Elvis Presley:  If you can do the ‘moves’ as well you’ll either impress – or look like a total dork.
  8. Sometimes when we touch – Dan Hill: The soaring vocals can certainly attract attention – if you can pull it off that is.
  9. Unchained melody – Everly Brothers: Works a treat! It worked for me!
  10. The way you look tonight – Michael Buble: You’ll have even better luck if you’re wearing a tux!

Then again, you can probably pick up with any song if you wow them enough.

I picked up some girls in a karaoke bar once by singing Meatloaf’s “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”
I was singing it with two of my female friends, and halfway through the song, two more jumped up on stage and started singing, just cause I was doing it so well, haha.
Funny how the song is all about telling a girl you love her just to fuck her.
