Here, she double majored in high-brow sarcasm, and graduated with honors in pungent irony. As a result, she is fluent in both languages. All coats aside, after two years as Editor in Chief of one of NYC’s leading nightlife blogs, Talia realized her greatest passion to be music and is very excited to be heading 20something’s Create vertical, mostly for the free concert access it will get her.

It’s 1 a.m., you’re shitfaced, and it’s your turn to put a song in at the karaoke bar. You can’t carry a tune to save your life when you’re wasted (let alone when you’re sober), but you really want everyone to like you. Or love you. So what do you do? You play your cards right by selecting a crowd favorite, duh.

Now, being that I’m from South Florida, land of the karaoke bar, I am quite the expert on what the fans (A.K.A. fellow drunk people at the bar) want to hear. And so I have dutifully compiled this list of bangers that are sure to get you some cheers, hollers, hoots, ass-slaps, and maybe even some surprise guests on stage with you.

Remember to always sing like nobody is listening, because nobody really is, they’re too busy screaming along with you at the top of their lungs.
