A hybrid between charades and karaoke - act out (gesture) the lyrics of the song that is playing.
  • A lot of fun, especially for those watching, even more so if it's a party and people are slightly intoxicated.
  • A good way to train your acting skills and challenge yourself to overcome stage fear.
  • A novel game to entertain people at the party and act as a social catalyst.
  • Good for those who are too afraid to or can't sing (don't have an ear for music).
How it works:
People usually act the song out to some extent while singing it, but the point here is to act out all the lyrics, trying not to miss any words/phrases. It's silent singing. There could be many different versions of the game, here are a few I can think of:
  • A person chooses a song the lyrics of which he/she knows by hard (just like with karaoke). He/she can sing as well while acting or only act. The record that is playing can be with vocals or without (a karaoke version), but if the person is only acting, then the record should contain vocals.
  • One person sings a karaoke version of the song while another one acts out the lyrics.
  • Other people choose the song for you, you might not know the lyrics at all or know them only to some extent (this can be discussed within the group with the person who will be acting).
  • Different people act out the same song one by one, the results are compared.
  • Different people act out the same song at once.
  • A person acts out the lyrics of a karaoke version of some song that only he/she knows and the spectators try to guess what the song was about, its title, etc.
Can you think of something else that would be a fun addition to the game?:)

The charades version would be really fun for songs that have characteristic lyrics or titles. I can easily see doing it for Smells like teen spirit, Stairway to Heaven, It's raining men, These boots are made for walking, Poker face, etc.
