Top 10 "New Year, New Me" Karaoke Songs
The new year is a chance to get started on all those things you said you wanted to do last year; become a more zen individual, start a tea cosy business or complete a 5km run in the time it takes you to listen to Bohemian Rhapsody four times back-to-back.
In the spirit of inspiration, positivity and shaking off the troubles of 2022, here are the top 10 "New Year, New Me" karaoke songs for 2023:
1) Ain't No Mountain High Enough - Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
According to this phenomenally catchy Motown classic, it is entirely possible to scale Mount Everest if one of your goals or desires is waiting on the other side. Of course we wouldn't recommend you put this to the test - instead, bask in the sentiment of this love song. If you want it, go get it!
2) Survivor - Destiny's Child
This R&B anthem speaks both to what you endured last year and what you're going to accomplish in 2023! Nothing boosts the spirits like proclaiming "I'm not gon' give up, I'm not gon' stop, I'm gon' work harder". Try it out for yourself...
3) Roar - Katy Perry
Big inspirational vibes all over this pop smash hit, and coming from the artist who previously brought us "Firework", we think Katy Perry knows a thing or two about believing in oneself. If you're looking to be more determined, spend more time with family or just strive to be unapologetically yourself, give this song a whirl!
4) Don't Stop Me Now - Queen
It wouldn't be a Lucky Voice karaoke top 10 without one Queen song on it - even if we did "Top 10 Karaoke Songs That Aren't Queen" they'd still end up on it out of principle. However, Don't Stop Me Now is pretty perfect for this list, as it provides bucket loads of positive momentum to keep us going with any resolutions (at least until February...)
5) Eye Of The Tiger - Survivor
If the "New Me" you had in mind for 2023 was to be a champion boxer...then perfect. If not, this song still rocks and is utterly synonymous with hard work, determination and punching cold cuts of meat. Two out of those three make sense for this top 10, and that's good enough for us!
6) Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
This one doesn't really need an explanation - just hearing those piano chords at the start would make the most uninspired person think, "My dream of baking the world's largest Madeira cake...it's possible!" So put on this karaoke classic and send us a slice of that cake when you get the chance.
7) Walking On Sunshine - Katrina And The Waves
Despite being scientifically impossible, the message of this song is still beautifully upbeat and puts you in the mindset of someone who isn't going to let the same old things trouble them anymore. We thank Katrina and her waves for this gem of a song!
8) Higher And Higher - Jackie Wilson
All by itself, this soul classic literally propels the Statue of Liberty to walk through New York City in Ghostbuster 2. And if it can do that, then imagine what singing it can do for you! There's an energy within this song that, whilst probably not supernatural, completely embodies the 'New Year, New Me' mantra.
9) I'm A Believer - The Monkees
You've already had two unnecessary movie references on this list so I won't bring up Shrek. Oops. Anyway - this track is as catchy and infectious as it is motivating. Have a little belief and good things will start happening. Thanks Shre-I mean The Monkees!
10) Stronger - Kelly Clarkson
Last but not least, fully shed 2022 and embrace 2023 - Kelly tells us that everything we've gone through only makes us more prepared to be our best selves going forward. And that is quite the beautiful sentiment. Plus it's a cracking song!
