There are certain types of music that are more fitting for guys to sing, but of course men can sing any songs. They might not feel confident belting a Celine Dion or Whitney Houston song until the key has been doctored and the song lowered a couple of octaves. In all seriousness, you have to be able to hit the notes to sing a song, and that’s the bottom line.
Men with their lower registers often look for songs that better fit their singing capabilities. Yet some men have quite the vocal range, and the lower register sure does come in handy, too. Sometimes songs start lower and then reach real high, and people need that type of vocal range to sing those songs. What are some easy songs to sing guys could do well with? Here’s why lessons for learning how to sing for beginners, especially for men is important.
Let me give you one example. I like to sing, but I’m far from being the greatest singer. I like all types of music, and country is one genre I like to pick songs from which to sing. Trace Adkins is known for his lower register, and he sometimes talks his songs as much as he sings them. When I was picking a song to record myself singing, I chose ‘Every Light In The House Is On.’
I didn’t choose that song because it was easy to sing. I chose it because it fit my lower register, and I like the song. That is the only one I recorded myself singing, but I sang a few others for the Summer Camp American Idol competition we had for the counselors. One of the songs I sang was Bon Jovi’s ‘Wanted Dead or Alive.’
Let’s go ahead and say that would be one of the easy songs to sing guys would do well with since I sang it myself. What other songs could make the list? Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond and Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey are good examples. These are popular songs, and they are often covered and also sang in groups.
Let’s be clear, however, that no song is really easy to sing. The songs mentioned are just great picks that you might want to explore if you are a man looking for songs to learn. Frank Sinatra’s My Way is another song that men like to sing, but it might be a little more difficult. Another song men like to sing is Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley.
If you really want to have some fun, and you’re perhaps doing karaoke, there is Sir Mix Alot’s Baby Got Back and Bohemian Rhapsody. These songs are easy enough to sing, but they are, well, a little challenging when it comes to memorizing the lyrics. I still think I have most of Bohemian Rhapsody memorized, and I can hold my own with Baby Got Back.
Those last two are more for fun. Are you looking for ballads? Maybe you’re really looking for the best song to showcase your voice. It can be different for everyone. I’ll tell you from experience that the best thing you can do is continue to learn music and experiment. You will find your voice.
