My Favorite Homemade Cover Songs on YouTube

Posted by on Tue, Aug 26, 2008 at 9:57 AM

M.I.A. -- Paper Planes
Hey, girl in the back, it's no big deal... we all come to a point in life when we have to make all new friends 'cause the ones we had when we were kids were talentless.

American Pie -- Don MacLean
I won't ruin this for you, but I do not understand how you can perform this song and not do the one thing he doesn't do. (Hint: It has nothing to do with his tube socks or his decision to sit indian style.)

Avril Lavigne -- SK8er Boi
I don't know why, exactly, but I have an incredible amount of respect for this girl.

Belle and Sebastian -- Judy and the Dream of Horses
He botches a few lines here and there, but I cannot wait until this dude tours with Jens Lekman and Sondre Lerche.

Weezer -- Butterfly
It's not very nice of me to post this, but I felt better about nakedly mocking him after he got to the part where he wouldn't even say "bitch." Also he's wearing a heather grey sweat suit.

Mountain Goats -- This Year

More indian-style sitting, this time without tube socks. When you look this much like John Darnielle, is there really any other kind of YouTube video worth making?

Moldy Peaches -- Anyone Else But You

Of all the versions of this song on YouTube, this is my favorite, by far.
