  1. Weird Al Yankovic

Weird Al Yankovic is known for his humorous songs that make light of pop culture and parodies of specific songs by contemporary musical acts. He could be said to be the “Godfather” of parodies, as many musicians in his time love to have him parody their songs and music videos.

2. Disney Parody

This Disney parody “After Ever After” places the Disney princesses in modern circumstances through a Capella layering his own voice over to supply the music. While the song lyrics are hilarious, it also exposes the dark side of humans and their greed, power and violence towards our planet.

3. We Live in Singapura

Singapore’s very own parody of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” sings the history of Singapore and its modern quirks and traits of living in this country. It was sung by Hossan Leong during a special event held at the Parliament House of Singapore by the Mr. Brown show. Til this day, the song is well-known among many Singaporeans as we sing along to its humorous and amusing lyrics.

4. Deadpool The Musical - Beauty and the Beast

Deadpool has been a popular comic character from the Marvel comic franchise. It has made its name on the big screen in the recent years and many fans have cosplayed and spoofed Deadpool due to his tendency to talk and joke constantly. This characteristic of Deadpool is shown in the above video as he shows off his skills as a superhero in the musical tune of “Beauty and the Best”.

5. The Spidey Life

Similar to Deadpool’s musical parody of beauty and the best, Spider-man, another popular marvel comic character sings a smooth pop anthem about all the stuff that makes life worth living, web slinging and wall crawling. He borrows pop icon Bruno Mar’s “That’s What I Like” tune and makes it a song about living the “Spidey Life”.
