good riddance by greenday? i know its cliche, but it IS a good sing along song.

I think it depends on the age of the people singing along. If they're twenty-something or younger, then probably anything newish. If they're 30-something or older, classic folk and rock songs from the '70's like Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Neil Young, Eagles, Cat Stevens, Boby Dylan, James Taylor, Pink Floyd, etc. Also, every generation knows the Beetles and there are some great guitar sing-along songs. You couldn't go wrong there.

I went to a sing-along party a few years ago that had a couple of banjos, a base, a couple of guitars, fiddles, etc. and they passed out lyrics to classic old time songs like "You Are My Sunshine" and "Down in the Valley." At first I thought "oh god help me this is going to be ridiculous" but it was SO much fun that next thing I knew, I'd gotten my first banjo!!! Everyone had a sort of embarrassed posture at first but before long everyone was singing loud and harmonizing! Whoda thunk it?!

I think that's the greatest party theme I've ever heard of -- especially for a bunch of goofy, nerdy folks like my friends!

And I've said it before, but "The Bare Necessities" always a huge hit.

Check out Brendan Benson. He's in The Raconteurs, and he's a singer songwriter. His music is basically pop music, but it's much better than what you see on TV.

I doubt everyone knows him, but it's very listenable. If that's even a word.

Nice and easy, simple melodies.

Bob Dylan is a great idea as well.

As cliched as it is, every time my friend plays it the whole party ends up singing Stairway to Heaven.

American Pie by Don MacLean is good too, but no one remembers more than the first two verses and the chorus :p

Other than Theresse's and onboard's recommendations.. I don't recognize a single "classic" listed. Seems to make T's post relevant.
#21
^completely agree. Folks.. not everyone knows Oasis, Incubus, Switchfoot songs haha!

Think of songs that no one can escape. It'd be difficult to find people who have never heard songs like "I'm Yours", or "Here Comes the Sun" a few times in their life. Free Fallin' was a good suggestion also.

Sunday Morning Call - Oasis, Where did it all go wrong - Oasis. Talk tonight - Oasis. .45 (acoustic) - Shinedown, Dont look back in anger - Oasis, Dont go away - Oasis, Whatever - Oasis. Pardon me - Incubus, I miss you - Incubus (if you're good at singing while picking chords, instead of strumming)

OK, you all of course realize, this is a necro bump, don't you?

Fair enough. How about a necro suggestion?

That said, I'll play along. How about the Beach Boys, "Fun, Fun, Fun, When Her Daddy takes the T-Bird away"? (I think that's the title).

I personally like some folk drinking songs. The Dubliners, that kind of stuff. For example look for Whiskey in the Jar (original version) or The Wild Rover.
