A pre-planned emergency exit is always useful for any karaoke singer who’s miserably and desperately free-falling in front of unknown song lyrics. We’ve all been there, trying to save face by mumbling through the words. Even some well-known songs may still get the best of us.

In addition to his huge musical legacy, John Lennon left behind some pretty humorous jabs.

Even if she's been independent for over a century, those who visit her rolling green hills become instantly dependent. Who is she? Beautiful Ireland, of course, land of traditions and mysteries, of fierce and authentic beauty (yes, we know, sounds a lot like an advertisement for the National Tourism Agency).
Every year, on March 17th, the whole world honors this magical island on Saint Patrick's Day, adorned in green and sporting the symbolic, harp, clover, Guinness or dressed as the friendly leprechaun and singing songs in ode of this country.
So, if, for you too, Pierce Brosnan is the best James Bond, U2 the biggest rock band, George Best a better footballer than Neymar, or if you know that the Pogues are not a recess of the 1990s but a British band that gives honor to Irish folk, these karaoke songs are for you!
2019 is off to a great start, and we're excited by the focus on two great arts: movies and music! The connection between the big screen and the melodies is set to cross all genres this year: musicals, biographies, animated films, and more.
All of this adds up to one thing (and we couldn't be happier)....a slew of new songs for the next karaoke party!
