So today we are bringing you some of the best parody songs we found celebrating all things tabletop. I’ve scoured the Internet looking for awesomeness and entertainment.

1. “Carcassonne Tonight”

It seems fitting to start with Carcassonne Tonight, a parody of Eddie Money’s “Take Me Home Tonight.” After all, it’s where the name We the Meeple comes from. And well, it’s a pretty fabulous game in and of itself.

So go on, go play some Carcassonne. You know you wanna.

2. “Boardgame”

Next up is a parody of Lady Gaga’s “Lovegame.” I love this for a lot of reasons. It’s really well done and I have a lot of love for the classics — Scrabble, Connect Four, Battleship, and Clue.

3. “Roll a D6”

This riff on Far East Movement’s “Like a G6” makes a bit more sense and celebrates the most ancient of nerdy habits: Dungeons and Dragons! “Roll a D6” is well done and I love the nerdy costume-fest going on.

4. “I Gotta Feeling”

My apartment is home to a weekly D&D campaign (my roommate runs it, not me). It doesn’t quite look like this — though I would pay good money to see that. This fantastically nerdy song is based on the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” song.

5. “Do You Want to Play a Board Game”

There’s a “Frozen” parody for everything. Really. So it’s not surprising that I came across this, a twist on “Do You Want to Build a Snowman.” No video, but lyrics. And really, what’s not to love about an excuse to break out into a Disney song AND ask someone to play a game?

So now it’s your turn — what are your favorite parody songs? Tell us about them!
