On today's Soundcheck, musicologist Alisun Pawley talks about sing-along songs and why we want to belt out familiar tunes in a crowd. Then Pitchfork founder and frequent Soundcheck contributor Ryan Schreiber gives us his list of fiveĀ irresistibleĀ sing-along songs -- from Al Green to David Bowie and Queen to Weezer.

Plus, The Mountain Goats' John Darnielle delivers a stirring solo performance behind the piano and acoustic guitar in the studio.
