Madonna’s Like a Prayer is one of the most requested songs by karaoke enthusiasts.

I’m not undermining their message, but it’s got that really catchy and crazy chorus, where it doesn’t matter what you shout, as long as you do it loud enough. It’s not easy to sing, but like I’ve told you, it’s not about accuracy, it’s more about the riot.
