SING, sing a SONG

It cracks me up to see kids come in to the library to sing!  They plug in the headphones and start grooving to a tune on line and the next thing you know I have to go into shhhh! mode.
Is there a way to tap this energy?  So,  who is mining this? 
I found this karaoke site--are there better sites out there?  I am not a musician.  Just curious.

My sister recently compiled a CD of songs that we grew up singing at the house. 

The list is greatly influenced by my deceased father--it tells you a lot about the man:

His favorite songs to belt out were often show tunes:

If I were a Rich Man! Topol
I Don Quixote, Richard Kiley
Downtown, Petula
