Let’s take a closer look at some music leaders country by country since not everyone likes Eagles with their timeless hotel, which has been welcoming all kinds of guests for more than 50 years already. In general, all the world hasn’t gone far from adoring the hits of the 90s, and yet there’s a catch to it. Any fresh release, either a catchy film soundtrack or some ancient blues of the early 20th century, is now just as likely as the unbeatable “Queen” to compete for the top lines of ratings.
Kaiser Chiefs – I Predict A Riot
Norway, the Netherlands, Canada, Austria, Switzerland, Portugal, Brazil, Italy, Australia
Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper – Shallow
Backstreet Boys – I Want It That Way
Denmark, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Hungary, the USA
Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody
Britney Spears – Oops!…I Did It Again
And to top it off, here are 5 performers whose songs can be most often heard in karaoke clubs:
