“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.

Guys … we go through this every year … "Scotty Doesn't Know" from EURO TRIP is a real song, not scripted. pic.twitter.com/ZyXaDVjktA— H. Perry Horton (@hperryhorton) November 23, 2020

All of the songs Rebecca Sugar has made for Adventure Time & Steven Universe have incredible melodies & gentleness. They all very much feel like jingles that the character made up on the spot, but all very earnest & true to the heart of the scenario.https://t.co/KRVFGwNifK— Kayla Ancrum (@KaylaAncrum) November 23, 2020
