Internet Meme Hall of Fame: Multi-Track YouTube Videos

People with too much time on their hands, singing every part of popular songs.

"Don’t Stop Believing"

We have a theory that “Don’t Stop Believing” is the most important cross-format song in pop-culture history. It’s been on TV, in movies, on Broadway, and in video games. But only on the internet do we get to experience it like this: one guy, alone on a Saturday night, playing with Photobooth in his basement.

"Ghostbusters"

It’s nice to see a multi-tracker not taking his song too seriously, but rather just having fun, like this guy obviously is. That said, we’re not entirely sure about the frame where he’s shirtless and singing via giant monkey puppet.

"You Rock My World"

This about as good multi-tracking gets. No instruments or AutoTune; just a guy using his voice in thirty-eight different ways over five days to replicate the King of Pop’s only good song from Invincible. And it’s amazing.

"Baby on Board" 

This girl represents two minorites: 1. Females, since most of the other multi-trackers are men, and 2. Nerdy Simpsons fans. She’s a girl after our own hearts.

Star Wars

We get why this guy chose the themes from Star Wars, Jurassic Park, and other John Williams classics — but where’s the love for “A Christmas Quilt” from Stepmom? Everyone always forgets Stepmom.

Pokemon

The video’s author lists each instrument he uses to create this layered masterpiece, which is a helpful thing to know. Other things we’d like to know: exactly how many v-neck t-shirts do you own? And how is Pokemon is still on the air after six-zillion episodes?

"Bad Romance"

Who needs words when you’ve got this crazy rhythm? Besides, is anyone really going to miss the lyrical genius of "I want your psycho/Your vertigo stick?" We think not.

Madonna’s "4 Minutes"

The love child of Brooke Shields and Nelly Furtado sure can beatbox the hell out of that vitamin C bottle.

"Enter Sandman" performed on kazoo

And speaking of the internet: where else could you see “Enter Sandman” played on the kazoo? We’ll bet you anything Mister Tim refers to himself as “Master of Kazoos.” We would.

"The Lion Sleeps Tonight"

This list wouldn’t be complete without some rendition of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." But this version’s just odd: he (rightly) apologizes for his voice, wears a "Vote for Pedro" shirt and owns an Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull poster. Like we said, weird.
