You are at a Christmas Party, where you are destined to take the mic and sing your heart out in the next few minutes, but your mind’s at a blank deciding what song to pick. Fortunately, Pinoy Builders has just the thing for you.
No, we are not going to suggest construction-related music. Parties are a place for forgetting about work after all!
1. Kaleidoscope World – Francis Magalona
A classic hit that’s all about bringing the world together.
2. Journey – Don’t Stop Believing
Here’s an easy one that a lot of people are familiar with, either because they’re great music fans or they just so happened to have been into the Glee series back in 2010. Either way, it’s a good song that no karaoke party should skip.
3. Rick Astley – Never Gonna Give You Up
An internet meme at face value, but a decent song at heart. Beware though that Rick Astley’s hit song might raise eyebrows at the party.
4. Eraserheads – Ang Huling El Bimbo
Who could forget about the Eraserheads’ hit song? This one is guaranteed to get a group singing behind you.
5. Jose Mari Chan – Christmas Songs
As far as running jokes go, Jose Mari Chan’s Christmas invasion takes the cake. For corporations, a perfect marketing figurehead. For everyone else, something to laugh about. Whether you’re willing to sing one of the classic Christmas songs as a joke or you’re just going for something easy and safe, Jose Mari Chan’s collection of holiday music is enough to lift everyone’s holiday spirits. Just don’t pair it with “All I Want for Christmas”, for heaven’s sake!
6. Frozen – Let It Go
The most popular song of 2013, beloved by kids and kids at heart, loathed by everyone else who had to stick with them. Relive the horror for yourself and everyone around you by singing this at the top of your lungs this Christmas!
7. Gloria Gaynor – I Will Survive
You survived this year. God knows what the next one has in store for you.
8. Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now
Warning: Do not take the title to heart while eyeing a bottle of brandy.
9. Chito, Kiko, Gloc, and Pedro Basura Man – Bagsakan
The best way of finding out who among your peers is more drunk than the other. Trio karaoke!
10. Parokya ni Edgar – Buloy
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. But let’s not forget about the friends and families we’ve lost over the decade. The memories you spent with them will always be with you.
By the time you’ve skimmed through this list, you are probably next on the chopping block. Just take a deep breath and pick one of these ten suggestions. It will be over before you know it.
