I'm just gonna have to ask you to ignore the last few seconds of the video... (Awesome Covers Of Already Awesome Songs/Life With Unicorns)

Mr Bunches watches videos all the time on Youtube; he'll start out with some video he likes, like the one we call "Funny Cats" and click around finding other videos. He landed on one not long ago in which some cats sing Dragostea Din Tei, which you know as "the Numa Numa song."

I didn't realize he'd done that until later, when I asked Sweetie how he learned that song. I'd found out he knew the song when, on the way to the grocery store not long ago, he busted out singing it, prompting me to (in a not-at-all-unsafe-way) get out my cell phone and record as much of the performance as I could:





He declined to sing anything else, and I didn't know what he was doing until later, when I looked at the video.

That's clearly the most awesome version of that song you'll ever hear, but there are some other interesting covers, like the...


...Opera version:





...The Piano version:






And the Earnest Guy With Acoustic Guitar version:





I think we can all agree that what the world really needs, though, is a version by Rebecca Black.

Have you ever heard the version that Rihanna does on the song "Live Your Life"?

I really like Rihanna's voice on this one.
