I’m a bit of a karoake fan. Once a month, my buddy Mark and I go and get slaughtered on Vodka Redbull and murder a few songs at our local karaoke pub.
Well, I can across iloaded.com at the weekend that has over 1500 karaoke videos for iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Classic, iPod Video, iPod Touch and iPhone.
I have to make it clear that these karaoke videos actually come with the lyrics on the screen. I’ve come across so-called karaoke videos in the past that were just dodgy intrumental versions of the song with no lyrics on screen. More hum-a-long than sing-a-long.
Now the important thing about these karaoke videos is the quality of the music. These are top notch! Nothing worse than singing along to a really bad copy or version of the music. It’s gotta sound like what we’re used to hearing right? These are very, very good.
You can download Lady Marmalade for free to give it a go. Yeah, it’s not one I sing with Mark, but it gives you an idea of the quality you can expect.
You can preview the karaoke videos on the site before buying them, they cost £1.69 each*.
How To Buy Karaoke Videos for Your iPod
Just browse the site iloaded.com, adding the karaoke videos to the shopping basket, hit check out, put in your payment details and then you’ll be taken to the download page.
How To Put Karaoke Videos On Your iPod
Download the videos to you Mac/PC. Import them in to iTunes and then Sync your iPod/iPhone. Job done!
These will also work on your Apple TV.
*They also bill in euros and US dollars, but because they "employ sophisticated, state-of-the-art Geo-IP technology to locate your country of use", I have no idea how much they charge in other currencies. Perhaps if you visit the site, you could let me know using the comments form below so I can update this article.
