Notable entries that missed the list are in no order:
- The Duck Song by forestfire101
- A song from The Rap News by The Juice Media
- Newton Faulkner playing percussion on his guitar while covering Teardrop by Massive Attack
- David Choi covering Telephone by Lady Gaga
- Harry Potter and the Mysterious Ticking Noise (which you will NEVER EVER get out of your head!)
But without any more delay, here is the top 20, from 20 to 1.
20) Cool Guys Do Not Look Back at Explosions by The Lonely Island
A humorous song that makes fun of every action film that was ever, or will ever, be made.
19) Michael Jackson is a taxi driver
The above might be a bit misleading. It is not the real Michael Jackson, but this taxi driver sings just like him. Mind you, being ESL, he does pronounce some words strangely. But then so did MJ when it suited him.
18) Charlie the Unicorn 1, 2, 3
This is not technically just a song. Instead, it is a unique (read: drug-inspired?) cartoon with very random songs.
17) Take U To Da Movies by Bangs
There is something about Bangs. I do not know what it is. It could be the stock photos that have stock photo written on them. It could be his lyrics that are very descriptive, including detailing his inner dialogue about which chair to choose. Or any number of things. Perhaps you just have to watch it yourself.
16) Oasis Medley by Tripod
Comedy trio uncover the cheekiness of Oasis music.
15) Bromance song
A song about the brotherly love between a guy and another guy.
14) FBI Warning song by Community Channel
A hip hop inspired FBI Warning at the beginning of a video or DVD.
13) TV Show Medley by Fredde Gredde
What is says on the label. A talented musician interpretting TV show themes in an entertaining medley.
12) Everyday Normal Guy by Jon Lajoie
This is a rap song unlike the usual ones you might hear on the radio. It does not talk about the expensive cars, plethora of sexual partners and gold chains, but the lack thereof. Enjoy!
11) Dramatic Song by Toby Turner
A funny song with a target market for non-English speakers, or those English speakers who enjoy a laugh. After you watch this, feel free to check out the responses from Grandmas around the world. Some are well done, some are less so.
10) In Your Arms by Kina Grannis
Kina deserves a song in this list for the beautiful music she creates, but especially for this video. This online film clip took years of stop animation genius to make. The whole video is made with jelly beans. So, awesome.
9) The Humans are Dead by Flight of the Conchords
Flight of the Conchords are my favourite comedy act. Well, they are at the moment. It always changes. And this is my favourite song of theirs.
8) Somebody that I Used to Know (Gotye) covered by Walk Off the Earth
How could a list about top YouTube videos not include this one. It has well over 100 million views, so enough said.
7) Epic Rap Battles of History
Ever wondered what would happen if you took historical figures, gave them each a mic, and then set them against each other in a rap battle. Here is a sample of their work, but there were quite a few I could have posted instead. Mind you, the words historical figures can be a loose term, and so depending on your belief system and your age, this video might not necessarily featuring real people.
6) Harry Potter Theme Songs by Paint
Did you know all the songs in the Harry Potter movies had words? Well now you are informed. See below.
5) Haters Wanna Be Me by Froggy Fresh (formerly known as Krispy Kreme)
This rapper embodies the adage about being so bad that you are good. I am pretty sure this is a joke, but you never know. I have put one song in the top 25, but I could have put a whole lot more.
4) Schmoyoho and Charlie Sheen - Winning
Schmoyoho are known for autotuning news segments, and making some great songs. In this video they autotune interviews with Charlie Sheen. And yes, Charlie Sheen actually did say these things in a real conversation.
3) Enrique Iglesias - Hero: Literal Version
As far as I can tell, the original version of this has been taken off YouTube. Probably because it was too awesome and YouTube could not handle the awesomeness. It is essentially the film clip of Hero by Enrique Iglesias that has been dubbed to describe exactly what is happening in the video. There are other versions, but this is probably the best one.
2) Schmoyoho and the Bed Intruder Song
This is the second song from Schmoyoho in the charts, and there could have easily been more. This time they autotune a news story with the charismatic Antoine Dodson, who is being interviewed after chasing out an intruder from his home.
1) 4 Chords Song by Axis of Awesome
An Australian comedy trio belt out hit after hit in a hilarious medley, using the same four chords. This makes the top of my list, but if you think I am wrong, about this one or any of the ones above, feel free to tell me so in the comments below.
