Best German songs for karaoke

19 posts in this topic

Recently moved back to Munich and was at a Karaoke bar last night for the first time in ages.

 

I've got a decent portfolio of karaoke songs from other places I've lived (in Chinese, Japanese, etc.), not to mention a bunch of typical English songs -- but realized that even though I speak German I don't know of any particularly good songs for Karaoke.

 

Any suggestions?

You could always try Ein Bett im Kornfeld - it's Let Your Love Flow with German lyrics. Makes me chuckle every time.

 

I reckon Männer sind Schweine by Die Ärtze would also be a great karaoke song.

Those both look good. I know Männer sind Schweine and would definitely try that one.

 

Any thoughts on Zehn Kleine Jägermeister by the Die Toten Hosen?

Try "Eisgekühlter Bommerlunder" instead:

The traditional songs even the tiniest karaoke place in Japan has are Dschingis Khan ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGmiG3HEM9I ;)) and Nena - 99 Luftballons

"Ich will keine Schokolade" (complete with a dance!), sung to the tune of "Percolator".

 

 

 

Nothing by Die Fantastischen Vier - I drew them at Suicide Karaoke once.

Looks a tad difficult towards the end there

Yup, but the lyrics are dead easy and people in karaoke bars tend to be drunk anyway... ;)

Marius Müller Westernhagen,Herbert Grönemeyer, Unheilig or Xavier Naidoo maybe?

Nena might be a little high for a male voice.

Maybe you can find a good collection of NDW (Neue deutsche Welle) songs. They are old, but somehow even younger people know them. Skandal im Sperrbezirk or Schickeria-Spider Murphy Gang for example. It was a NDW Band from Munich. Unfortunately most of the vids are blocked on youtube.
