Gloria Gaynor - ‘I Will Survive’
Gaynor’s post-breakup disco hit evolved into an anthem for female empowerment and gay pride, as well as one of the most often-sung karaoke tracks.
Sample Lyric: “Weren’t you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye / You think I’d crumble / You think I’d lay down and die / Oh no, not I / I will survive / As long as i know how to love I know I will stay alive / I’ve got all my life to live / I’ve got all my love to give / And I’ll survive”—Jeff Royer
