Subject: A new type of Parody

Written By: Tenacious Lee on 05/31/08 at 3:55 am

Hello guys, I am Tenacious Lee and I have submitted a few parodies into AmIRight, altough i stopped for a few months. I have just started again. I had a new idea which I don't know if it has been done or not or is something completely different to a parody.

Okay, So here it goes, My idea was for just one song to be, lets say 4 different sections of songs. So it would be like this.

Song - verse 1 & 2 from Song 1
          chorus from Song 2
        verse 3 & 4 from song 3
          chorus & verse from song 4.

Has this been done before?

Hopefully I will have an example of this in the folllowing days.

I don't think that it's been done before, but I also don't think that it complies with site rules. You're supposed to parody a whole song, and doing several at once seems quite confusing.

I've never done what you said TL, but I did do a medley of songs in the same submission.

Ethan's right...I woulnd't be doing a "medley" here unless it was previously recorded medley, such as one of Weird Al's polka mashups, or something like this:  ;)

Tokusu Sentai Blessranger has done things like this a number of times, but he's been asked not to do them anymore.

I wouldn't submit them as Amiright parodies...post what you come up with here.

Billy Connolly's "In The Brownies" was a bit like that: it used the verse structure from YMCA, but the chorus from "In The Navy".

Weird Al's used multiple originals in parodies - the flintstones and brady bunch songs come to mind - but to pull something like that off you need musical composition skills to transition between different songs and you can't demonstrate that here.

The Plumbing Song, All About The Pentiums, and Bedrock Anthem, for those who care.

Actually, It's All ABout The Pentiums was just one song (It's All About The Benjamins (Rock Remix) by Puff Daddy (at the time)). But the other two you got right.

But yeah, as said, that kinda thing doesn't comply with AmiRight rules, but if the OS was a medley or mashup, go ahead. And again, post what you got here.

It does contain an interpolation of "I Did It For Love" by the Love Unlimited Orchestra , so that's why I included it. (see the composer credits). But I now guess that was P. Diddy's doing, not Al's.

I think Chris Bodily did some mashups on here as well.
