Top 10 Best Songs to Parody

Alright, let’s talk parody songs! These tunes are like the cheeky rebels of the music world, mixing humor, smart lyrics, and catchy melodies to turn the original song on its head. They make us laugh, they make us sing along, and they show us the lighter side of music. They've been tickling our funny bones and making beats more amusing for ages! Weird Al Yankovic, the king of parody, and tons of hilarious YouTube versions are living proof that when music and humor collide, it’s a blast!

So, what we’re trying to do here is find out which songs are just screaming to be parodied. Think about those tunes that are infectious, known by pretty much everyone, and have lyrics ripe for some funny twists and creative spins. These are the tunes that can be turned into comedy gold!
The Top Ten
1 Baby - Justin Bieber

Remember the Minecraft parody of this song?

This will work great for my History Project!

Bro, this is the best.

2 Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z

This is a great song!

3 Party In the U.S.A. - Miley Cyrus

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

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 tiny bit of a challenge ;) You should really try this!

This song is one that we are doing a parody to in science. 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.

Great song to create your own lyrics to!

Love this song.

6 Boyfriend - Justin Bieber

Love my boyfriend.

7 Telephone - Lady Gaga

Love this song.

8 Bad Romance - Lady Gaga

Love this song.

It's a great song.

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 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 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.

This song is so lit.

Best song ever!

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

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

Amazing for song parody!

I'm doing this one now.

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.

This is such a cool song!

Very nice melody!

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, ai, 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.

This would be hard, especially since I was assigned to make an English 1 parody of this song.

It made America great again.

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.

Easy to make and fun to watch people smile while listening.

18 Friday - Rebecca Black

There are a whole bunch of parodies of Friday on YouTube. Only a few of them are good. The other ones are trashy.

I love this song.

19 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

Really easy to make a parody of. Was a lot of fun too.

Fun. Friends made a funny squirrel parody of it.

I think this song is a wonderful song.

20 What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction

Everyone is beautiful.

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.

Great idea. Love the song too.

"Deep meaning."

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

It's super simple to make a parody. Like, change Delilah to donut.

This is an awesome song.
