The Top Five Balloon Boy Tribute Songs


The tale of Balloon Boy has captured the attention of the nation, becoming the latest shared cultural event of the Internet age. In real time, we tweeted and blogged our prayers, our jubilation, our suspicions, and finally, our anger and disgust. We watched the videos of little Falcon Heene blowing his family’s whole scheme, and then vomiting all over the place out of shame and guilt. And, apparently, many of us are expressing our complicated emotions in music videos posted on YouTube. Out of the many (yes, there are many), these five tribute songs have distinguished themselves from the rest. Enjoy.
