Royal Songs । 9 Songs About Kings, Queens & Royalty
With Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee fast approaching, we know you’ll want to honour this occasion by singing some royal songs at your next karaoke night. From groovy tunes to powerful ballads, these songs are all connected to kings, queens and royalty.
1. Dancing Queen - ABBA
This fun-filled, groovy song is always a hit and guaranteed to get the crowd going. You’ll certainly feel like a queen when you have the spotlight on you with this song.
2. King of Sorrow - Sade
This R&B song by Sade is beautiful yet haunting, with the lyrics clearly portraying the singer’s grief. While this may not be an upbeat karaoke song, it’ll certainly capture the crowd's attention.
3. Royals - Lorde
This Grammy Award-winning song may have come out nearly ten years ago, but it never gets old. The inspiration for this song came from a picture of a prominent baseball player in the 70s and a curiosity about royalty. This song is about artists and the regal, luxurious lives they live and how inaccessible these
lifestyles are for everyone else. So, when you belt out this hit, not only will you be singing a song inspired by royalty, but you’ll be singing a song with a deeper meaning - how cool is that?
4. Viva la Vida - Coldplay
While the title may not mention anything about kings or queens, the song is actually all about the royalty. Viva la Vida specifically tells the story of the French revolution and King Louis XVI's demise. Now, you may be thinking that this will be a sombre song, but that couldn't be further from the truth. With baroque and orchestral-style pop music, it has a lively feel. But be prepared; you’ll probably have the whole crowd singing along with you.
5. Kings and Queens - Thirty Seconds To Mars
This Thirty Seconds To Mars song is another awesome karaoke track with a hidden meaning. With its powerful chorus, this alternative rock song is not for the faint-hearted.
6. Killer Queen - Queen
“Moët et Chandon”, “caviar and cigarettes” - it certainly sounds like someone is living the royal high-life! If you love this killer tune by the British rock band, Queen, then you better get practising.
7. Royalty - Conor Maynard
If you’ve ever dreamed of what it would be like to become royalty and have your special person ruling at your side, then this is the song for you. With its mix of jazz swing, electronic and R&B, this is a fun and easy song to sing for karaoke.
8. Queen of the Night - Whitney Houston
This Whitney song may not be quite as well known as some of her other tracks but don't think for a minute that it isn’t as good. This dance come pop-rock song is super edgy and catchy. Plus, it’s one of her easier songs to sing at karaoke!
9. Heroes - David Bowie
As one of Bowie’s greatest hits, “Heroes” tells the story of a couple (his producer, Tony and a German girl) who he saw kissing near the Berlin Wall in 1977. This was still during the time of political unrest, which also shaped the imagery of the song. The lyrics, coupled with the alternative/pop style track, make for a powerful karaoke song.
