There’s nothing more fun than making a fool out of yourself belting cheesy ’80s tunes. Whether you’ve got a musical group of friends, love singing solo, or want to build up your confidence before stepping into a real karaoke bar, snag an at-home karaoke machine that’ll keep you rocking all year round. Set up a fog machine, some lights, and record performances to capture fond memories between friends (or for blackmail). Here are some choice options worth singing about.
