Lip syncing is a high-energy way to perform a song without actually having to sing a note. Some of the best songs for lip syncing are upbeat tunes that allow for plenty of facial expressions and exaggerated movements. Generally speaking, lip synced songs should be happy with fast beats, although some slow songs also lend themselves well to being acted out.

Show tunes

Broadway tunes were designed to be sung and acted out simultaneously, making them perfect lip sync numbers. "Don't Tell Mama" from Cabaret, "You Can't Stop the Beat" from Hairspray, "America" from West Side Story, "Cell Block Tango" from Chicago, "Big Spender" from Sweet Charity, "If You've Got It, Flaunt It" from The Producers, "Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile" from Annie, and "Nothing" from A Chorus Line are all reliable lip sync songs.

Oldies but Goodies

"Respect" by Aretha Frankin, "It's Raining Men" by The Weather Girls, "Dancing in the Street," by Martha and the Vandellas, or "Stop in the Name of Love" by The Supremes are lip sync ideas sure to get the crowd on their feet.

Fast Temp Pop Hits

Aqua's "Barbie Girl" or "Happy Boys and Girls" are funny and familiar, and Chumbawumba's "Tubthumping" is a great hit to lip sync and headbang to all at once. "Say My Name" by Destiny's Child or "As Long As You Love Me" by The Backstreet Boys are slower but solid choices.
