Top 15 funny songs to sing along to
The list ranges from old school tracks to recent hits that have everyone singing along. Which one is your favourite?
1. Bruno Mars – The Lazy Song
What is the funniest song ever? When it comes to funny songs to sing, Bruno Mars’ hit about a lazy day tops the list. Laziness is a feeling everyone can relate to, and when the incredible vocalist sings it, you have to sing along.
The music video adds to the comedy by having Bruno chilling in a bedroom with dancers in monkey masks making the corniest dance moves. Sing and dance along to the enjoyable tune.
2. Reel 2 Real feat. The Mad Stuntman– I Like To Move It
Do you remember the track on Madagascar that had us dancing? That’s the one. It is genuinely one of those funny pop songs everyone knows the chorus to. It is simple and it definitely gets you dancing along.
3. CeeLo Green – Forget You
Funny music comes from the strangest places and sometimes the saddest stories. Even though the tune is about heartbreak, the way Ceelo sings it makes it one of the funniest songs ever. It is an excellent track to sing along to, especially if you have an ex you want to forget.
There are two versions of this song; we went with the cleaner version, but feel free to sing whichever you prefer as only the word ‘forget’ is changed. He sings about trying everything to keep this girl. Anyone who has been through such heartache will be singing along.
4. Lizzo – Truth Hurts

5. LMFAO – Sexy And I Know It
This song makes it to this funny songs list because of its outrageously funny lyrics. It is comically boastful and inspires certain confidence when belting it out. Get up and dance to it as silly as you can. This is a fun track to cheer you up at any time of the day.
6. PSY – Gangnam Style
The Korean tune was the lead single of PSY's sixth album titled Psy 6 (Six Rules), Part 1. On December 21, 2012, it broke the record as the first track to hit 1 billion views on Youtube.
The song was received quite well, considering the fact that most people could only sing the chorus. The charm of the hit is the hilarious dance moves that come with it, the Gangnam Style. So make sure to learn the moves and sing along.

11. DNCE – Cake By The Ocean
The wacky title to this comedy song makes you turn your head a little. Why would you do such a ridiculous thing as eat cake by the ocean?
As it turns out, the tune has a funny story behind it. The producers confused Sex On The Beach, an alcoholic beverage, with cake by the ocean, a common phrase. The lyrics aren’t meant to be taken seriously and that is why this funky jam is so much fun.

The beat of this song and the lyrics are enough to have you dancing and singing along to it. Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson make it such a fun experience to watch the video.
There is no way one can sing it and have a bad mood. Dress up and act it out while mimicking the swag the song demands and you’re sure to have a great time.
13. The Chainsmokers – #SELFIE
This is more of a spoken word that follows a girl who likes to take selfies with a danceable tune to it. In the video, the girl seems to solve all her problems by taking a selfie. The premise of the song is familiar, given the tendency to take a selfie everywhere.
14. Los Del Rio – Macarena (Bayside Boys Remix)
