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 Songs That Would Sound Amusing If Done With a Posh British Accent

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

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

Back In Black - AC/DC

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

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

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

Psycho Killer - Talking Heads
Break Stuff - Limp Bizkit
Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
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

Happy - Pharrell Williams
Lightning Bolt - Jake Bugg
Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold
Spit It Out - Slipknot
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

What I've Done - Linkin Park

Imagine Chester Bennington with a British accent

3 a.m. Eternal - The KLF
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

I Want to Break Free - Queen
Crocodile Rock - Elton John
Galvanize - The Chemical Brothers
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

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

Oh hell yeah

Temptation - New Order
Temptation - Heaven 17
S&M - Rihanna
Crazy - Seal

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

I Remember - Deadmau5
Ringo - Lorne Green
I Cry - Flo Rida
Ring of Fire - Johnny Cash
Chocolate Salty Balls - Isaac Hayes
Girlfriend - Kabbage Boy
Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
Let's Go Away - Takenobu Mitsuyoshi
Panda - Desiigner
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
