    Every other Wednesday, Solly's U St Tavern brings patrons delightfully tacky Kostume Karaoke. We've been dying to witness this hump day hilarity and finally, last night, we warmed up our vocal chords and made it for the show. The U Street spot offers a slew of hats, wigs, props, and more but encourages singers to embrace their fabulousness in their own costumes. After all, karaoke is just a grown-up's version of make-believe, so why not go all out and dress in your finest fashion fantasies.

    Looking to join the wonderfully weird crowd at Solly's for future Kostume Karaokes? Get your voices ready, your costumes out, and throw your shame out the door because here's a list of the top 10 karaoke songs of all time for you to choose an entertaining tune from...

    10. The Police - Roxanne

    9. Meatloaf - Paradise by the Dashboard Light

    8. Kenny Rogers - The Gambler

    7. The Rolling Stones - Start Me Up

    6. Journey - Don't Stop Believing

    5. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - I Love Rock n Roll

    4. Bobby Darin - Mack the Knife
