Totally agree with you m8
Sunfly are just churning out disks of which I have used 2% of in the last 12 months.Even young audiences are asking for robbie,elvis,elton etc.
Mind you ,have you tried singing some of the crap in the charts,it appears that a lot of the modern stuff is written on the basis of see how many words you can get into a 3 minute track and not medley anymore.
i.e Tony Christie must have had the biggest selling single this year !

Default agreed!

Yep, I agree.
In fact the only person at my gigs that regularly sings new songs is me!
I like to do it to be a bit different.
I leave the obvious stuff to everybody else!
recent winners have been "You're beautiful" by James Blunt and "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter. both of these get a good reaction.
Also A bit of Razorlight "Golden Touch" and Coral "In the Morning".
My daughter (age 10) likes to try new stuff also like Black eyed peas, Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne, etc.
But, the oldies...50's and 60's will always be the classic songs for karaoke.
with the 80's stuff close behind.

I use Hoster by MTU to host my Karaoke and it has it's own songbook creator. It prints it out using Word.

Default massive song books

I think massive song books are just off putting.

The first thing I did was to take out dupicate songs.
I (sad in the extreme) listened to every song that I had more than one version, and kept the best one in the book.
The book went from a carefully selected 12,500 songs to a carefully selected and extremely well sorted 8,200.
All the same songs are there, but its a lot easier to read and just looks better.
I still feel the book is too big!

I am thinking of taking a couple of "full books" and then some really slimmed down ones with probably the most obvious and best 1000 to 2000 songs in.
If any of the regulars want to sing anything else they will just ask me if I have it anyway. And the "passing trade" one song merchants usually want something obvious anyway.
After all, I bet most karaokes do not have more than about 500 songs sung over a couple of years even if you are doing 3 gigs a week!
