“What’s a fake song,” you might wonder. Well, in this context, Twitter user Randall Otis means any song that is written to live within the world of a movie. So a kick-ass theme song doesn’t count. This does includes songs characters sing that didn’t previously exist in our world, the jams played by fictional bands, and some unexpected ditties.

It all began with this prompt.

Then, Twitter users had fun with it. Enjoy the music.

Some plucked songs from musical movies, like Freaky Friday, Inside Llewyn Davis, Love Actually, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga and That Thing You Do!

Sing Street had its soundtrack’s praises sung by many, including from How I Met Your Mother’s Josh Radnor:

Fans of his show shared appreciation for Robin Sparkles:

Josie and the Pussycats deservedly got a lot of love.

“Scotty Doesn’t Know” from Eurotrip was such a popular pick that the song’s name was trending yesterday, which sparked some controversy.

Some suggested animated acts, including Kim Possible, The Goofy Movie, Bob’s Burgers, Steven Universe, Adventure Time, and more!

Finally, some picks were very unexpected yet very right.
