Best Bo Burnham Songs

One of the funniest artists on the internet, Bo Burnham's songs are classic. Here are my ten favorites!

The Top Ten

1 Art is Dead Art is Dead

As much as I love Art is Dead, I don't feel like it's his best for one reason: it's not a true showcase of all of Bo's talents.

It's an outstanding example of how serious Bo can get despite being a comedian, how he can tackle mature topics without turning them into jokes. It's also good for showing his skills at singing and playing music. However, it doesn't show his ability to make clever and funny jokes in his music, which is his key talent.

Art is Dead wasn't meant to be funny, and I'm not saying it should've been funny. I think that he approached the topic the way he should've, and that Art is Dead is amazing the way it is. I don't think it's his best, though, as it doesn't show Bo's full capabilities. - Thevideogameboy

Very catchy and deep.

The fact that this veers away from most of Bo's music is the reason why this is my favourite song by Bo, it tells the story about what Bo didn't want to become, and hates that he did.

Not funny, but the meaning behind it is amazing mixed with music

2 Words, Words, Words Words, Words, Words

It's really hard to choose a favorite but while a lot of them are about equal the wordplay in this song is awe-inducing...not only is bo my favorite comedian but one of my favorite artists (this is coming from someone who listens to a ton of music from a ton of genres)

Burnham is a genius. His rhymes and phrases are not only hilarious but amazingly clever and nifty

Great song! Genius. - Jweet4444

3 Are You Happy?

Just listen to the song. You will understand

Amazing song. Feel so much emotion with it. - LemonComputer

4 Can't Handle This (Kanye Rant)

Absolutely belongs at the top. While mildly funny, he disguised himself in plain sight, making a comedic song about his struggles with the audience, while giving them what they want. Truly brilliant.

Definitely should be number 1 - CannabisCat420

a classic - hugh201

5 From God's Perspective

Hilarious and surprisingly touching towards the end

6 Kill Yourself

This song is hilarious, one of the best twists in his songs.

It is a song that has a deep emotional foundation masked by many thick layers of comedy. It explains the complexity of life while making you laugh very hard.

Stick your tongue in a plug - Not_A_Weeaboo

How is this not number one - hugh201
