Subject: Parody ideas (for someone with more talent than I)

Written By: Taoist on 07/17/02 at 05:34 p.m.

Parodies...
I have plenty of ideas but limited time/talent
Here's an idea for a parody that maybe someone with more time/talent can use!

Gilbert & Sullivan, Modern major general (Pirates of Penzance) - Modern US president
"I am the very model of a modern US president
I got here cos in Florida my brother Jeb is resident"

Anyone with ideas, add your own, I'm sure someone will take up the challenge (Philbo - I'm counting on you!)

PS - Phil: I know precisely what is meant by 'commissariat'

Another idea, contributed by a hippy friend!

Chumbawumba, Homophobia....
Up beyond the Khyber there's a country under threat
They gave shelter to Bin Laden and they've got it in the neck
Mixed in with the terrorists are men like you and me
Bombed to bloody mincemeat by the leader of the free

Xenophobia, the worst disease
Bomb anyone you want to bomb in times like these...

That's good... surely you can do some more:

Now we attack Turkmenistan with bombers from Afghanistan
No, the other way around it's all these countries I don't understan'
If anyone attacks us then with mighty force we'll hit them back
But make exception for Saddam and be the first to bomb Iraq

With firepower nuclear and brain made out of sediment
I am the very model of a modern US president

I was thinking about doing "Nuttin' But a "P" Thang" a parody to Snoop and Dre's "Nuttin But a G Thang".  The "P" meaning "parody".  anyone wanna join?

Just downloaded the mp3 to have a listen: nope, I'm afraid it's not really my cup of tea.  I have to admit I'd be more tempted to write "Nuttin' but a G String" as a parody, but it'd probably not get on to amiright ;-)

I've been throwing a few around on the fragments site on amiright.com, and one song title on the "New Song Titles" page on amiright.com.

Here they are:

A song called "Drinkin' Problem" based on country singer David Ball's song "Thinkin' Problem" (the first line goes "Yes, I admit/I've got a drinkin' problem")

A song called "Addicted to Drugs" based on Robert Palmer's song "Addicted to Love" (which includes the line "Might as well face it, you're addicted to drugs"; I have already written the second, third, and fourth lines of the song as "Your eyes are wide/You act/Like your brain is fried")

A song called "The Viagra Song" based on Smash Mouth's cover of ? & the Mysterians' 1967 song "Can't Get Enough of You Baby" in which the most-repeated line is "I can't get it up for you baby" (I ought to submit this to whatfreaks.com instead)

And my latest, which spoofs Duran Duran's song "Rio" with Cincinnati Reds pitcher Josť Rijo, who is trying to make a comeback.  The only line I have is the first line of the chorus, which goes, "His name is Rijo and he pitches for the Reds."

...I've just (like an hour or so ago) submitted a parody to "Addicted to Love" called "Allergic to Cats" - and I have a feeling there already is an "Addicted to Drugs" parody up there (just checked - it's by STP STG)

hey check this out.  while I was updating the new song names for the website I came across a funny idea from someone to do an parody.  
"Why Are You Taxin" a parody to Outkasts "Ms. Jackson".  I thought it would be funny for someone to do.  Especially since there's a thread, I belive in the 2000s, saying how stupid taxing fast food is.

This, which i thought of a few days ago, is quite a challenge... i thought of trying it myself but realized i'm not quite up for it if it ever gets finished it would probably have to be a several person collaboration. It's to Eminem's "cleaning out my closet" And would be sung by an al-qaida terrorist who was struggling to run away from the anti-terrorist forces and he was really hungry one day and saw a guy who seemed to be pretty heavy (possibly too fat to flee competently) so this terrorist decided to eat this person out of desperation and couldnt even make a full meal out of it because it was Osama Bin Laden disguised as a fat person. He's the chorus: I'm sorry 'Sama/ I never meant to hurt you/ I never meant to make you die but last night, I gobbled up Bin Laden.
