Karaoke and '80s music is a match made in heaven, but what are the very best tracks you can choose when it's your turn to belt one out? From "Bohemian Rhapsody" to "Take on Me," let's rank the very best '80s karaoke songs that are sure to win the crowd over every time.

It may be a tad overdone, but "Don't Stop Believin" by Journey is basically a cheat card for getting the crowd pumped up. Another great '80s karaoke song is "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" by Whitney Houston, which has a chorus that everyone will be singing along with. Other great '80s songs for karaoke include "Take On Me" by a-Ha (if you're good at hitting those high notes) and "Africa" by Toto.

What constitutes a good karaoke song is pretty subjective, so if your favorite go-to '80s hit isn't already here, add it to the list!
