You know what’s even better than girls night?
Girls karaoke night!
Karaoke is an awesome way for you and your girl squad to let loose with a few drinks and a few belt-along tunes. However, while we’re sure you’ve already got the drinks covered, choosing the songs can be a little more tricky.
That’s where we step in!
In this article, our team of musos-slash-writers-slash-karaoke-bar-experts have put together this all-encompassing list of 60+ karaoke songs for girls. We’ve included everything from female power anthems to just-plain-fun songs that fit comfortably within the standard female vocal range.
Feel free to jump around this list and find the tracks that suit you best!
1. Since U Been Gone (Kelly Clarkson)
This classic Kelly Clarkson song may have come out years ago, but it hasn’t lost any of its magic. It will showcase your vocal range and is incredibly fun (not to mention cathartic) to sing.
2. Levitating (Dua Lipa)
Try singing this one without bopping along…it’s impossible. You and the whole girl squad will just have to dance to the catchy rhythm that has made this track an international hit.
3. Oops!… I Did It Again (Britney Spears)
This 2000’s anthem was made for karaoke. Whether you sing with Britney’s poppy twang or not, this one is a great choice for girls night.
4. If I Were a Boy (Beyoncé)
This iconic Beyoncé song was one of the first of its kind in terms of discussing gender roles. You can belt out its profound lyrics, not to mention those vintage Beyoncé riffs.
5. I Kissed a Girl (Katy Perry)
The mysterious instrumentals mixed with a continuous build-up towards the chorus make this Katy Perry tune amazing for karaoke. Plus, the vocals are quite straightforward.
6. Dangerous Woman (Ariana Grande)
This song is a powerhouse piece and will make any woman feel amazing while singing. It isn’t built around Ariana Grande’s impossible whistle tones and riffs, so it’s easier for the less-seasoned vocalist than many of her other songs.
7. Come Clean (Hilary Duff)
Any Hilary Duff song was made for karaoke. However, this one is particularly enjoyable to sing. The crowd will have to join in for the chorus simply because it’s too much fun not to!
8. Bad Romance (Lady Gaga)
Bad Romance is made for the stage. It’s dramatic and full of perfect moments to shine. Any girl can let her inner diva surface when belting out this melodious Lady Gaga classic.
9. Born to Die (Lana Del Rey)
You can’t suggest karaoke without at least considering a Lana song. Born to Die is rather easy to sing because of its moderate tempo. It also rarely strays from the middle register, making it suitable for any vocalist.
10. You Don’t Own Me (SAYGRACE)
This song was initially released in 1963 by Leslie Gore. It quickly became a feminist anthem, covered by Joan Jett and most recently, SAYGRACE, because of its roaring vocals and incredible instrumental build-up.
11. Promiscuous (Nelly Furtado)
Promiscuous is more of a duet (with Timbaland) than a solo, however, any girl can sing both parts for a fun, throwback karaoke moment.
(By the way, if it’s duets you’re after, we’ve got a list for that).
12. Ex’s and Oh’s (Elle King)
Though Elle King’s distinct voice may intimidate you, have no fear as this song is not overly complex for the amateur karaoke star. The clever lyrics about her many conquests are empowering for any singer.
13. Love Story (Taylor Swift)
If you’re a Taylor Swift fan, you may not even have to look at the screen for the lyrics with this track. Love Story is a perfect acoustic pop song that will leave the girl squad (and you) uplifted and wanting more.
14. Dancing Queen (ABBA)
Any ABBA song is contagiously cheerful, but Dancing Queen may be the most feel-good song of all time. Whether you’re 15 or 25, you can sing your heart out to this timeless sing-along.
15. Super Bass (Nicki Minaj)
Despite the speed at which Nicki raps, people tend to know these lyrics off by heart (or at least the first verse). You can jump from speak-singing to showing off your vocals on the melodious chorus.
16. Raise Your Glass (P!nk)
P!nk wrote this song as somewhat of an ode to self-love and gratitude for those we love. Raise your glass is synonymous with “cheers to this/us/you”.
17. Good As Hell (Lizzo)
This track is an instant mood lifter. If you’re looking to get the crowd (and yourself) dancing and everyone feeling themselves, this Lizzo self-love tune is a great choice.
18. I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Whitney Houston)
The ’80s were a time for disco, dancing, big hair and big vocals. No one did it better than Whitney Houston. Especially with this song which was practically made for karaoke.
19. Valerie (Amy Winehouse)
Though no one quite sings as Miss Winehouse did, the song isn’t too difficult vocally and its acoustic jazz sound is a pleasure for any karaoke bar audience to listen to.
20. Wrecking Ball (Miley Cyrus)
Talk about powerhouse. There’s a reason this song’s music video has over 1 billion views on YouTube. It’s a heart-wrenching song about love and loss and is perfect for a karaoke star.
21. Bang Bang (Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Jessie J)
The combination of artists on this track could leave anyone speechless. The vocals are full of interesting hooks and probably best for the experienced singer. However, it can also be sung without all the frills and still sound amazing.
22. Ocean Eyes (Billie Eilish)
There’s a reason this song launched Billie Eilish into superstardom. It suits soft vocals perfectly so if you’re not trying to lose your voice, this could be a great choice.

If you’re looking for a slower acoustic option to sing along to, Bubbly offers a perfect combination of sweet lyrics and melody. It will make your karaoke experience feel as though everyone is listening around the campfire.
32. Chandelier (Sia)
If you have a big voice and you’re ready to let it out, Chandelier is for you. The chorus can be challenging, but isn’t that what karaoke is all about?
33. You’re So Vain (Carly Simon)
You may recall Kate Hudson singing this classic tune in the film, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Why not re-create the magic yourself? The song is catchy and fiery, which is why we love it.

If one song can put you into a feel-good mindset more than any other, it may be this Rihanna classic. So, let the beat play and channel that Rihanna energy.

No one does it like Aretha – but we can try. First released in 1968, this song has been covered and sung across the world for years and it never fails.
55. Someone Like You (Adele)
The piano introduction is enough for you to get the tissues out. However, this Adele number is excellent for showing off your vocal power and leaves room for vocal liberties all over the place.
56. Shallow (Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper)
