One of the secrets of KTV in China is that you don't have to be good at singing. You just have to be loud. So it helps to have a small repertoire of fallback songs you can belt out whenever the occasion calls for it. And for those of you just starting, we recommend this one. Mumble your way through the first couple of versus before striding into laowai stardom with the chorus.
There are plenty of versions and covers of this song floating around. If you're not in China, you may get better performance from this version hosted on Youtube.

I've been going through a lot of "KTV Wednesday"s lately but it seems most of the songs aren't very karaoke friendly (as in loud and singable). I thought the point is to introduce easy songs to whip out at KTV parties so you can impress the pants off people. But finally, we have a winner. I have actually heard this one in KTV. More like this please.
