Five Best Covers of Antoine Dodson's "Bed Intruder Song," Now No. 3 on iTunes' R&B/Soul Charts

You might notice that this blog is filed under "Before It Gets Old"--well, Antoine Dodson's "Bed Intruder Remix" NEVER gets old. Ask anyone who's seen it (like we have, daily, on repeat, for the past week and a half). Today we discovered that the "Bed Intruder Song feat. the Gregory Brothers and Kelly Dodson" (yes, that's its official title) is No. 3 on the iTunes R&B/Soul Chart.


Not only has the catchy song spawned a gazillion covers on YouTube, it's also turned Dodson into a bona fide celebrity. Dodson now has an official site, a Twitter account, a YouTube account and an official Zazzle store for his merch.

Here's the longer, chart-busting version for your pleasure--admit it, you can't stop listening to it either. For variety, we've picked out the best, most imaginative "Bed Intruder" covers on YouTube.

1. Best Cover Using A Japanese Instrument


What's a Tsugaru Shamisen? It's one of the versions of a three stringed Japanese Lute.


2. Best Accordion Cover Recorded by a Bored Kid


You have to watch it til the end, where this guy's daughter says, "Pa, I'm done videoing."

3. Best White Boy Beatboxing Along Cover

And you get the benefit of listening to the original while homeboy is beatboxing.

4. Best Earnest White Girl Cover

Oooh. So serious!
