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

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

Especially Sean’s (dreamy) Rap.
- TheDuttyGyal

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

Ah. Say no more. Yes, I can imagine that that would be pretty awful. With many people trying to perfect various songs these days, and failing spectacularly, I can picture it from my experience of terrible re-versions of various songs. - PositronWildhawk

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 Psycho Killer - Talking Heads
7 Lightning Bolt - Jake Bugg
8 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

9 3 a.m. Eternal - The KLF
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 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
12 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

13 I Want to Break Free - Queen
14 Galvanize - The Chemical Brothers
15 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

16 Break Stuff - Limp Bizkit
17 Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars
18 Push It - Salt N' Pepa
