The Top Ten
1 Baby - Justin Bieber

Remember the Minecraft parody of this song?

This will work great for my history project!

Yes, yes, YES! I made a song based on it - mostly the opposite though. It's about frenemies! Thank you so much.

2 Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z
3 Party In the U.S.A. - Miley Cyrus

"Party in the CIA" by "Weird Al" Yankovic is a great example. People could make a lot more parodies of this song.

PERFECT! I actually just made one. It's a classic song, which makes it easy to make a parody of, even though it was a bit of a challenge. You should really try this.

This song is one that we are using for a parody in science class. Thanks for the suggestion!

4 Plug Walk - Rich the Kid
5 Tik Tok - Ke$ha

So easy to. Just say something random and put it in a song like this. When I was in grade 6, they made us make a song out of our essential agreement, and I used this. Now my old class knows I'm a terrible singer.

This is a great song to create your own lyrics to!

6 Boyfriend - Justin Bieber
7 Telephone - Lady Gaga
8 Bad Romance - Lady Gaga
9 Hello - Adele

I have to make a parody of a song for my science class. I find this song very easy to work with. I'm making a song about ribosomes in a cell, and I'm finding it extremely easy so far.

It's really good if you want to make a sad parody. I tried, and it's a really catchy song too! I hope you guys agree.

Yeah, it is. I've made some parodies of it already.

10 E.T. - Katy Perry

A funny parody of this could be titled "Eating" with the first line being "You are supersizing." I don't know, it might work.

Aliens will destroy our world!

The Contenders
11 Fireflies - Owl City

"Fireflies" has always been an emotional song to me. It reminds me of the innocence of being a child, going out late at night, and catching little fireflies, running home and yelling, "I got lightning bugs!" This song would be beautiful to copy. So many memories.

Yes, this song brings back so many great memories and so many sad ones from anyone's past, regardless of who they are.

It would be a great song to make a meaningful parody of too. It has a good beat, so it could be easy to make up words.

12 Sweatshirt - Jacob Sartorius

I love this song, and I would have no problem using this song. As a matter of fact, I am for school. So, I have to rewrite it with my vocabulary words.

13 In Da Club - 50 Cent
14 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

I love this song. I will sing it all day.

15 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

We have Grandparents' Day at my school, and we have to make a parody that has to do with grandparents. We might also do Count on Me by Bruno Mars.

16 Closer - The Chainsmokers

I actually made a parody of it, which goes:

Hey, I was doing just fine until I met you. I sleep too much, and that's an issue, but I'm ok. Hey, I told your friends it was nice to meet them, but I hope one of them goes to hell. I know it fixed your heart, moved to the city in a limousine, and two months, no call, and now you're looking pretty in the school canteen, but I, a I, a I, can't stop, no I, a I, can't stop. So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your limousine that I know you can definitely afford, bite that tattoo on your shoulder, pull the sheets right off the corner of the mattress that you bought from the store named IKEA. We ain't ever getting older, yes we ain't ever getting older.

17 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

I used this song to make a parody for Romeo and Juliet Act 5 in my English class for high school. This song made it very easy and quick for the song. I ended up getting an A.

I made a parody of this song in 4th grade. Lots of words were repeated, and the rhythm was also repeated. Overall, it was easy to create a parody out of.

This song is easy to make a parody of and fun to watch people smile while listening.

18 Friday - Rebecca Black
19 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

This song is really easy to make a parody of. It was a lot of fun too.

This song is fun. My friends made a funny squirrel parody of it.

I think this song is wonderful.

20 What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction
21 God's Plan - Drake
22 Demons - Imagine Dragons

It is slow and easy. It is my favorite song from Imagine Dragons, and I think that it could work really well if you try hard enough.

23 The Batman Theme
24 Dynamite - Taio Cruz
25 Hey There Delilah - Plain White T's

It's super simple to make a parody. For example, you could change Delilah to donut.
