Earlier in the week, The Daily Show writer Randall Otis asked the good people of Twitter what is the best "fake" song from TV or film that doesn't exist in our world? Well, it popped off, and here are some of the best suggestions:
1.This bona fide pop anthem from The Lizzie McGuire Movie.
2.Beast Boy's "Catchin' Villains" song from Teen Titans Go.
3.Pink Slip's phenomenal audition piece from Freaky Friday.
4.And the baller track they sing during the film's credits, "Ultimate You".
5.Ashley Banks's "Make Up Your Mind" song from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air – complete with iconic dance!
6.The much-loved "Naked Mole Rap" from Kim Possible.
7.Dean Pelton's bizarre Eminem-style rap from Community.
8.This fabulous No Doubt-esque number from As Told By Ginger.
9.This cult-status cover of "Black Sheep" from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.*
10.Issa Rae's confessional bars from Awkward Black Girl.
11.Steve's creepy boy-band tribute to his mother from American Dad.
12.And another of his stand-out numbers, "Daddy's Home".
13.This amazingly lethal diss track from The Boondocks.
14.Eddie's impromptu gym class rap from That's So Raven.
15.Charlie's nightmarish improvisation "The Dayman" from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
16.My own suggestion – this iconic library-themed ditty from Arthur.
17."Pop! Goes My Heart", Hugh Grant's '80s hit from Music and Lyrics.
18.Obviously, the theme song from Alexis's reality show on Schitt's Creek.
19."Trouty Mouth", Santana's smooth jazz tribute to Sam in Glee.
20.This randomly quite brilliant improv from Stu in The Hangover.
21.The entire back catalogue of Phoebe in Friends.
22.This banger from Jade and Cat in Victorious – and yes, that's Ariana for those not in the know.
23.This music-hall homage to Miami from the iconic Golden Girls.
24.Hot Sundae's super motivational track from Saved by the Bell.
25.This catchy and much-loved refrain from Adventure Time.*
26.This inimitable Ashley O dancefloor anthem from Black Mirror.
27.And lastly, this unstoppable jam from A Goofy Movie.
H/T to @RandallOtisTV for kicking off the discussion! But all I can say is – justice for "Volcano Man"! And pretty much ALL of The Mighty Boosh.
