Songs That Would Sound Amusing If Done With a Posh British Accent

I know, this is a pretty random list. But it's something worth debating.

The Top Ten

1 Extreme Ways - Moby Extreme Ways - Moby

I personally don't know this song, so I had a few of my colleagues sing it (a real bunch of Hooray-Henry's) and you're absolutely right - it was absolutely hilarious (and dreadful)! - Britgirl

Just thinking about how amusing this song would be if done by a posh Brit makes me laugh to myself a little. I don't know what Moby would think, though. - PositronWildhawk

B.G. what do you mean "dreadful"?!?! It's a great song, and, to me, one of the all-time greats! As is Moby in general. - PositronWildhawk

2 Breathe - Blu Cantrell Breathe - Blu Cantrell

The song's by Sean Paul! Sorry, but the autocorrect is just being too idiotic! - PositronWildhawk

3 Back In Black - AC/DC Back In Black - AC/DC
4 Falling for the First Time - Barenaked Ladies Falling for the First Time - Barenaked Ladies
5 Living In America - James Brown Living In America - James Brown
6 Psycho Killer - Talking Heads Psycho Killer - Talking Heads
7 Lightning Bolt - Jake Bugg Lightning Bolt - Jake Bugg
8 I Like the Way - Bodyrockers I Like the Way - Bodyrockers

I heard this, this morning andI I immediately thought of this list. Definitely funny if a poshboy said "I like the way you shake your hair..." Hmm... - Britgirl

9 You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) - Dead or Alive You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) - Dead or Alive

This would just sound bonkers sung by Hugh Grant or Colin Firth and if I'm honest...just a teeny weeny bit of a turn on... - Britgirl

10 3 a.m. Eternal - The KLF 3 a.m. Eternal - The KLF

The Contenders

11 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
12 Autobahn - Kraftwerk Autobahn - Kraftwerk

I actually almost added this one myself. Now that I've inadvertently voted it into the top ten, I guess we're at equals. - PositronWildhawk

My kid brother's favourite band. His well-spoken voice while singing German is really something to hear. Seriously, you have to be there! Haha! - Britgirl
