Wait, what? Karaoke is more popular than ever! It’s the subject of countless social media posts, tens of thousands of YouTube videos, and is hosted by as many as 40,000 venues across the nation.
But in one sense of the term “pull the plug”, yes, it is high time. Especially if you’re tired of the same-old same-old.
DigiTrax Karaoke has just released Volume Three of their Unplugged Karaoke series. If you haven’t heard of these, it’s a collection of karaoke classics, the kinds of songs that are sung at least once per karaoke night. However, each one has been re-recorded and re-arranged.
Using an ensemble of highly-talented musicians, the label has put together a set of striking acoustic arrangements for these old saws, and is breathing new life into karaoke night. Here’s a partial list of some of the songs in these collections:
- Billie Jean
- American Woman
- All I Wanna Do
- Rock And Roll All Night
- Hurts So Good
- Hey Ya!
- Last Kiss
- After Midnight
- Hard To Handle
- Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong
…and a bunch more. You really owe it to yourself to give these a listen. The musicianship is amazing, and the arrangements are inventive while staying true to the spirit of the originals.
If you’re a karaoke singer who’s looking for a way to stand out against the crowd, this series is a match made in heaven for you.
All three bundles are available for purchase right now on Karaoke Cloud.
