And the funniest #1 philosophy student karaoke song is …

A while ago, we (Benito and Danie, that is) had a good laugh about the list Jarry Lee made for – The Canon of Philosophy Karaoke Songs. Seeing that most of the song titles Jarry Lee humurously mashed up with the names of famous philosophers were also number-one hits, we thought: Why not make a poll out of it? We even managed to add three of our own silly philosophical karaoke titles, and now you’re invited to join in and vote.

If you can think of any other number-one hits to combine with the names of philosophers, please drop us a comment below. And of course we can’t have fun with philosophers without tipping our hats to those incorrigible band of British pranksters, Monty Python – this clip might even give you a few ideas for some more philosophy student karaoke songs:

      Glad you’re enjoying it with us, Jo! Benito and I found it so amusing, we just couldn’t resist doing a poll. Still struggling to find a good spoof title with Plato, Socrates, Heidegger and Nietzsche though. Any ideas? I thought Pink Freud would be a nice name for a parody group.

    Pink Freud = perfect 🙂

    Tsk… Tsk… Danie Nana – what about “Nietzsche Gonna Change My Love for You”

    At a loss with the others, but will give it further thought 😉

    Respect, Jo. And how could I have forgotten Air Supply’s “Making Love out of Nietzsche At All”?
