As far as internet memes go, Antoine Dodson’s “Bed Intruder” song is pretty much the best. I can listen to almost every mashup/remix/country version anyone can churn out there. The weirdest part though is that we’re laughing about a really serious and disturbing occurrence – Dodson’s sister getting attacked. But on to bigger, better and more famous things! We can add another cover to the mix, this time from Paramore’s Hayley Williams, New Found Glory’s Jordan Pundik, and Relient K’s Ethan Luck.
When is Kim Dong Won going to stop teasing us and just come out with an entire Mariah Carey tribute album? Not only is he adorable, he’s getting a bit more daring in the outfit department. The Korean singing machine has captivated audiences since 2008 when his rendition of “Touch My Body” hit YouTube. Well he’s recorded a few more and they are nothing short of amazing. Here is his take on “Dream Lover“.
Watch out Beyonce, he’s coming after you too!
I am a bit late to the party with this “Sittin On Tha Toilet” business but oh man the hilarity that ensued once I finally got my Solo cup and took off my jacket. I swear I was completely sober when I watched this but for some reason it made me LLOL (literally laugh out loud). Now, while I still find the original video funny, the fact that there are at least a thousand covers of this gem is what made me cry from laughter. Like, I want to know what compels these people to record themselves singing(?) and clacking and flushing.
Here is the original masterpiece (they have disabled the embed option otherwise I wouldn’t make you leave the page…though this might make the anticipation even better.
The best cover I’ve found so far is this one. I’m not sure if it’s because the resemblance is uncanny or the impersonation is spot-on.
Here’s a fancy beatbox version which is really pretty good!
This is supposed to be the British Gentleman Edition but it’s looking a bit more Silence of the Lambs version to me
The white girl version (white girls LOVE CSI and that is a fact)
Asian dude version
So basically what I’m trying to say is, “Sittin On Tha Toilet” should be the International Anthem and they should play it before every meeting at the UN.
For some reason I could only find videos of older people singing the Sonny and Cher classic, “I Got You Babe”. Come on children of today, step away from the Selena Gomez/Jonas Brothers/Lady Gaga and pick up some old school shit to warm your heart. R.I.P. Sonny Bono.
What we’ve got here are two opposite ends of the spectrum. First, a happy couple of friends who used to be in a wedding band together (?? I’m gathering this from the second helping of cover that they tack on to the end of their first cover). They seem to be so happy in each other’s company. Reunited and it feels so good.
Then there’s this lady who puts her own spin on the cover. She seems as though she could not be more bored out of her mind – either that or she’s thinking to herself, “I’m gonna show these kids how it’s really done! Back in my day we walked ten miles to school with no shoes on and three feet of snow on the ground.” I’m pretty sure she also says something about going to a Cher concert and not understanding why she went in the first place. That’s usually what I like to talk about when I’m about to do a cover song filled with passion.
If neither of those float your boat, you might be interested in this gem
I have loved Joseph Gordon Levitt ever since he was a little girl on 3rd Rock from The Sun (yes I know he wasn’t really a little girl but he sure was pretty). On a scale of boys are icky to boys I would give my big lesbian card up for, he’s kind of the cream of the crop (no pun intended because that is disgusting).
I’ll be he could make us both feel like a natural woman.
