It’s a battle of the best karaoke pop songs! Picture it: You’re out on a night on the town with your friends, and someone inevitably decides to hit up some good, old-fashioned karaoke. Would you go for a classic, like Prince‘s ‘Kiss’? How about a ’90s-era smash like Backstreet Boys‘ ‘I Want It That Way’ or ‘Baby One More Time’ by Britney Spears? Or maybe Justin Bieber‘s ‘Baby’ or Katy Perry‘s anthemic ‘Firework’ is more your speed. But of course, you can’t forget modern pop staples like Miley Cyrus‘ ‘Wrecking Ball’ and Lorde‘s ‘Royals’… decisions, decisions! Which song would you rather sing at karaoke?

Backstreet Boys’ ‘I Want It That Way’ is sure to make the ladies swoon — and you know that you’re just dying to belt out that bridge (“Don’t want to hear you saaaaay!”). On the other hand, Britney Spears’ ‘Baby One More Time’ is a ’90s classic that will have you reliving out those days of dancing around your room, singing the tune into a hairbrush. (There’s a reason it made it to the final round of March Music Madness!)

‘Baby’ by Justin Bieber is versatile enough for a group to belt out, but it’s also perfect for a solo number, too. Katy Perry’s anthemic ‘Firework’ is sure to get the crowd going with its powerful beat and inspirational lyrics, while Prince’s classic ‘Kiss’ also makes a great karaoke hit — who could resist dancing (and singing!) along to that funky tune?

If you’re feeling a little more emotional, Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’ could totally do the trick: There are plenty of belt-worthy notes in the power ballad, plus any tune by Miley is guaranteed to be a good time. Of course, there is also Lorde’s mega hit ‘Royals,’ which is sure to get the crowd singing and dancing along.
