No matter what type of sport you most love, you can be sure that there is a parody song out there based on it. In fact, you could spend all day looking around YouTube at sports parodies if you wanted to.
To save you the trouble, we have rounded up a few of the best songs of this type for you to check out. Which one is going to be your favourite out of these?
Bohemian Rhapsody: A Golfing Parody Tribute
There is no doubt that Queen’s classic Bohemian Rhapsody lends itself perfectly to parodies. This group of four Australian golfers decided to set golfing lyrics to the tune and it worked out really well.
“Mama, I just smacked a ball” they sing and you know you are in for some laughs. The video is professionally made and the singing is pretty good as well to be honest. “Sometimes I wish I never played golf at all” has to be one of the great lines of all time.
The Transfer Song
Did it take you a few minutes to work out what song this was based on? The Take That classic Back for Good is changed to Gone for Good on this football transfer parody.
“Your best place is on the transfer list you see” they sign as the images of players who have fallen out of favour at their clubs pop up on the screen.
Weird Al Yankovic – Sports Song
You probably already know that Weird Al Yankovic is the king of parody songs but maybe you missed his sports parody song from a few years ago. The sports song sees our hero sing in front of a full marching band.
“Your sports team is vastly inferior” he sings as the band play and the crowd go wild.
John Denver – 18 Holes
You never expected to see John Denver on this list, did you? The singing legend once did a golf parody called 18 Holes, based on an existing song called 16 Tons.
It’s a catchy tune and “I owe my soul to the country club pro” line is sure to stick in your head. Of course, the singing on this sports parody is also a lot better than in most others in this genre.
Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United
The possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo moving back to Manchester United led to this bizarre cartoon parody. It starts with CR7 lamenting not paying enough tax and needing to get away from Spain.
“I want to leave Spain now” the player sings to Zinedine Zidane before travelling to rainy Manchester to beg Jose Mourinho to sign him. Will this parody come true later this summer?
Thrift Shop – Arsenal Deadline Day Remix’ (Arsene Wenger ft. Ivan Gazidis) NFSW
Arsene Wenger’s famous reluctance to spend big money on new transfers led to this bizarre parody. “Only got £80 million in my pocket” the fake Wenger sings as he tells us that he can scout youngsters instead of spending big.
Arsenal fans will find it a bittersweet parody as Wenger tells us “I’ll stick with what I’ve got.” Will things change in the next transfer window?
