Some songs are not meant to be enjoyed at a party, or dancing, or with other humans. Certain songs demand to be belted out when you’re completely alone—these are those jams.
Most of Guns N' Roses' hits are awesome for screaming along to, but "Sweet Child O' Mine" is our pick for all those whooooooa-oh-ohs.
Make sure to bang on your steering wheel for emphasis during Pat Benatar's "Love Is a Battlefield." I'd advise shimmying, too, but that seems dangerous while driving.
Florence + the Machine's "Dog Days Are Over" builds bigger and bigger until finally you're shouting the chorus.
Can you remember every lyric to Styx's "Come Sail Away"? That's okay—you're all alone in that car.
No one can hit that note of "I Will Always Love You," so you won't be judged if you can't nail Whitney's perfect version.
Go ahead, let a little sniffle out. Adele's "Someone Like You" is the saddest ballad of the new millennium.
Yes, Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer" is just as good without a crowd. Fist pump on your own!
Celine Dion's ballad "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" goes on forever, and you'll be emotionally spent by the time it draws to a close.
Ashlee Simpson's first song was a little bit of pop heaven. All the pieces! Pieces! Pieces of me!
Why is "The Edge of Glory" not Lady Gaga's biggest hit? It is the most delighful, delicious, perfectly pop song she's ever released!
Is there a culture on this planet that couldn't sing along to Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'"? I don't want to know about it.
We can all agree that the Spice Girls aren't played on the radio enough these days, so pack a CD to blast "Wannabe."
The movie Bridesmaids helped us remember how fun it is to sing "Hold On" by Wilson Phillips with your girlfriends. Or by yourself.
Feeling a little steamed? Scream it out with Alanis Morissette and the angriest song of the 1990s, "You Oughta Know."
An underrated gem in the Britney Spears canon? "Overprotected." It works even when you're not a pissy teenager!
It's best to sing Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" soon after a break-up, but it will work any other time, too.
Having a wistful Sunday afternoon drive? Wail away to "Free Fallin'" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
Turn around. Bonnie Tyler's very dramatic "Total Eclipse of the Heart" is the ne plus ultra of songs to sing alone.
