If you like to sing but you're no Freddie Mercury, then the 20 easy songs to sing for beginners is a good place to start (click to skip ahead and jump to 10 easy songs to sing for beginners).

Who doesn't love singing? After all, even when we're kids and can barely speak, give us a song and we'll try to imitate it every way we can. To me, music is perhaps the only thing that makes sense in a world which was never designed to make sense. That something so beautiful can exist, and can touch every person, no matter what their personality or disposition.

Look around and you will find people rocking out, others listening to metal while some will prefer romantic songs. Then there are some people who will spend hours listening to country music and singing in a twangy accent, but they are beyond saving, so let them be.


Of course, listening to songs is one thing, singing them is another. If you're singing along to a song, you might think you're the next Bon Jovi, but then suddenly the song buffers and you hear only yourself and wonder what in God's name could make that sound. Well, the thing is, you need to start off easy. Don't go directly for some song which even the singer strains to hit. Start off with some of the easiest songs to sing for beginners, which will help you develop your voice and train. And yes, while natural talent is important, you will still need to train, as do most of the world's most renowned singers.

It is important to distinguish between normal singing and karaoke singing. In karaoke singing, you are aided by a background track which can greatly enhance your natural ability. If you want to take a look at best karaoke songs for you, you should take a look at 16 best karaoke songs for bad singers, while if you just want to sound good, then 16 easy songs to sing that make you sound good should be your jam.
