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

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

5 Can't Handle This (Kanye Rant)

Definitely should be number 1 - CannabisCat420

a classic - hugh201

6 Kill Yourself

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

So much emotion put into a song about Killing Yourself. Awesome Song!
