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 Breathe - Blu Cantrell

Especially Sean’s (dreamy) Rap.
- TheDuttyGyal

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

2 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

Hi P.W: What I meant was, my colleagues' version of the song was dreadful. I downloaded the song when I got home and I actually quite like it. But I wish you had been there when they sung - I'm talking ear-bleeding bad! Now I'm off again to listen to how it SHOULD be sung.T.T.F.N... - Britgirl

3 Back In Black - AC/DC

I love this song and I love AC/DC. - DunnaNunnaBatman

4 Falling for the First Time - Barenaked Ladies
5 Living In America - James Brown
6 Beat It - Michael Jackson

This would be very weird. Actually most songs would be but this one especially.

7 Psycho Killer - Talking Heads
8 Break Stuff - Limp Bizkit
9 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
10 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

The Contenders

11 Happy - Pharrell Williams
12 Lightning Bolt - Jake Bugg
13 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold
14 Spit It Out - Slipknot
15 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

16 What I've Done - Linkin Park

Imagine Chester Bennington with a British accent

17 3 a.m. Eternal - The KLF
18 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

So I'm not the only person who's heard of this song

19 I Want to Break Free - Queen
20 Crocodile Rock - Elton John
21 Galvanize - The Chemical Brothers
22 Mein Teil - Rammstein

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

23 Chop Suey - System of a Down
24 Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars
25 Push It - Salt N' Pepa
26 Lift Me Up - Moby
27 Critical Acclaim - Avenged Sevenfold

Oh hell yeah

28 Temptation - New Order
29 Temptation - Heaven 17
30 S&M - Rihanna
31 Crazy - Seal

Thanks to the likeminded TopTenner who added this. That would be hilarious! - PositronWildhawk

32 I Remember - Deadmau5
33 Ringo - Lorne Green
34 I Cry - Flo Rida
35 Ring of Fire - Johnny Cash
36 Chocolate Salty Balls - Isaac Hayes
37 Girlfriend - Kabbage Boy
38 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
39 Let's Go Away - Takenobu Mitsuyoshi
40 Panda - Desiigner
41 Funky Friday - Dave

Dave's got a nice British accent here, but what if it was REALLY posh? This song would sound ten times better - oneshot
