The Five Best Pop Songs to Lip-Sync to

Let's keep this gender-unspecific -- i.e., this isn't just about drag queens, but about anyone who loves mouthing along to a song. (And who doesn't, especially if you're unemployed?)

Let's also stay within the relatively modern era. I'm not including "Don't Rain on My Parade," OK?

And so, the best lip-synch songs of today are:

(5) "Rehab" by Amy Winehouse. It's petulant, it's throbby, and you get to be oh-so-ironic about it.

(4) "Get The Party Started" by Pink. This one's fast and spirited, and if you have an audience, they automatically start moving their bodies against their will. This little tune is a self-fulfilling prophecy that actually starts the party.

(3) "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga. With all the chanting and other surprise sections, it's a tour de force for a farceur, especially if you can keep up with the frantic pace and dark emotions.

(2) "Give Me More" by Britney Spears. The robo-weirdness of the ditzy ditty is so very hypnotic and you get the extra bonus of hilariously imitating the way Britney bombed with it at the VMAs.

And number one is...


(1) "Lady Marmalade" by anybody!

This classic is as hot, dirty, and writhing as a Creole whore, and you get to play so many parts!

That's a pretty good list, particularly Bad Romance which is tricky because the verses are just similar and different enough to give you trouble. Personally, though, I've always liked lip synching to those songs that have way too many words in them like "It's the end of the world as we know it," "pump it up" or "subterranean homesick blues." You either know the real words or your don't. You look really dumb if you try to fake it.

Back in the mid-twentieth century, we girls loved "R-E-S-P-E-C-T, find out what it means to me."

PS: Since the stars themselves often lipsynch to their songs (thus my choice of the Milli Vanilli photo), why shouldn't YOU lipsynch to their songs too?

maybe it's my inner drag queen speaking - but I Will Survive is the greatest song to lip sync to ever!

The Kylie one that goes "Can't get you out of my head." Another self fulfilling prophecy!

because milli vanilla didn´t record the actual songs themselves! studio artists did the actual recording/singing.it was the first time in recorded music history that they actually used the models from the cover of the album to present the music "live" to the public instead of the actual singers themselves! why they had to return the grammy.they were just the models for the record album cover.greatest rock asnd roll swindle since macolm mclaren and the sex pistols.
