The Karaoke Anthems of The Golden Rail Pub – Volume 1

Despite having a catalog of over 50,000 karaoke songs, guests tend to return to certain favorites over and over.  Now in my fourth year of a Wednesday night karaoke residency at the Golden Rail Pub in New Brunswick – here is a list of  perennial crowd favorites.


For most of the songs listed below, I have listed the first name of the Golden Rail patron associated with performing the song.  Following is an embedded Spotify playlist where you can listen to all of the songs.  Enjoy!
