It seems most recently the song Pink Elephants on Parade from the Disney Dumbo movie has become a meme but I don't personally understand why or how the song is used in a meme.

Another song from Frozen that had became a meme was the song "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?" Usually it was just the very first part of the song though knocking included.

And I'm not sure who preformed this song but it was pretty popular last year for memes. It was called "Turned Down For What?"

Apparently, the song "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" is the new "To Be Continued" or the new "We'll Be Right Back" meme. As seen in this video: https://youtu.be/HxySdvKgouE

Personally I think it's the dumbest one yet and is just ruining a classic song but that's just me.
