Have you ever wanted a playlist of the best songs that start with K? Let me make your dreams come true as I present you with my playlist of songs. 

Taken from various decades and a number of different genres of music, all these songs start with K. 

Let’s jump right in and enjoy this playlist of the best K-named songs!

1. Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer

First up on my playlist is the song “Kiss Me” by American alternative band Sixpence None The Richer. The song was released in 1997 and featured on the soundtrack to 1999’s hottest movie, She’s All That

“Kiss Me” describes the excitement (and nerves) of trying to make sure that your first kiss is everything you wished for and is a sweet song with catchy lyrics. Be sure to add this sweet love song to your playlist as you plan your first kiss with that special someone.  

2. Killer Queen by Queen

Everybody loves a bit of Freddie Mercury, am I right? Enjoy Mercury at his best as he hits those high falsetto’s on this 1974 release of “Killer Queen.” The song was featured on Queen’s album Bohemian Rhapsody and is a fan favorite. 

“Killer Queen” is a song about a high-class call girl that caters to only the elite and describes her as a killer who seduces men with her charms. One can only wonder who the inspiration was behind the song as the band has kept it a secret all these years. Enjoy this classic Queen song in all its glory as you add it to your playlist of songs.

3. King and Queen by John Legend (Feat. Mary J. Blige)

John Legend and Mary J. Blige serve up a dose of romance in this song about finding your happily ever after that was recorded for the album Once Again. Moving away from his usual sound, John Legend’s R&B song “King and Queen” was released in 2006 and was met with approval from his bevy of fans. 

The song is about finding his Queen and is a modern love song with a very different sound. If you love a bit of R&B, you need to give “King and Queen” a listen today. 

4. Kentucky Gambler by Dolly Parton

It is common for musicians to use their own family or life experiences as inspiration for their music, and that’s exactly what country legend Dolly Parton did as she sang about her Grandpa Parton in her 1975 hit song “Kentucky Gambler.” 

The song featured on Parton’s album The Bargain Store and told the story of her Grandpa, who always wanted more from life and spent his days gambling. 

The song has a fun, country sound and is a good one to motivate you to always chase your dreams, no matter how unattainable they seem. Dolly Parton and “Kentucky Gambler” come in at number four on my list.

5. Keep On (Dancin’) by Diana Ross

What do you do when things are tough, and life has got you down? Do you bury yourself under a pile of blankets and spend your day watching depressing movies on the couch? Or do you put on your favorite song and dance your troubles away?

9. King Nothing by Metallica

Metallica brings us another banger with their 1996 song “King Nothing.” Featured on the album Load, the song is a guitar-fuelled masterpiece with lyrics that speak of finally getting what you wanted but realizing that it is not at all what you thought it would be like. 

I’m absolutely sure that we can all relate to this feeling, and “King Nothing” will make you think of all the times you have suffered this disappointment in your life. It is a great addition to your playlist and is sure to make you reevaluate some of your life decisions. 

10. Karma Man by David Bowie

Bringing me to the end of my list of songs that start with K is a classic song by music great David Bowie. “Karma Man” was released in 1970 and featured on the album The World of David Bowie, and tells the story of a Buddhist monk that is put on display at a carnival. 

Bowie was quite obsessed with Buddhism at one stage, and a few of his songs from that time have a more spiritual feel to them. Give “Karma Man” a listen and remember to add it to your playlist.
