Subject: Halloween Carols (Community Project)

Written By: Matthias on 10/29/14 at 11:39 pm

Sooooooo... It's been awhile since we did a community project where everybody posted songs to one solid idea. The last one was "The Super Hero Album" to "The White Album" and it was a success this time however I'm thinking about doing Halloween Carols (That means doing spooky topics to Christmas songs). Kind of like "Nightmare Before Christmas" but in song parody form.

For example instead of "White Christmas" it would be "Fright Christmas"

This project would start November 1st and end on December 25th and EVERYBODY is welcome to submit their parodies.
At the end of it all I'll add them all up in a new artist page on Amiright (If we have a big enough turn out).

So anybody think this is a good idea? Are you with me?

Here are a couple of ideas that I have already...



1. "Norman, The Cross-Dressed Psycho" (Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Raindeer)
2. "I Want The Necronomicon For Christmas" (I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas)
3. "Do They Know It's Frankenstein?" (Do They Know It's Christmas?)
4. "Have Yourself A Carrie Little Prom Dance" (Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas)
5. "Freddy's Strange Claw Hand" (Frosty The Snowman)
6. "O Creature From The Black Lagoon" (O Little Town Of Bethlehem)

That sounds like a pretty cool idea! I'm definitely interested, and I'll submit something once I get an idea.

I would love if we could get a group parody of "Do They Know It's Halloween?", with contributions by many as A Barrel of Monkeys classically has done.

I like the whole idea of a Band Aid type of thing... A Blood Aid, if you will...

Thank you for saving my annual Halloween parodies. I had a few rough ideas, and only a few materialized before the Halloween deadline. And only one of them was a Christmas song parody ("I Saw Mommy Staking Dracula"). I definitely want in.

Some ideas I might flesh out:

http://cinemassacre.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/Myers-house2.jpg

"O Little Town of Haddonfield"

http://www.empireonline.com/images/features/movie-draculas/Christopher-Lee-Dracula.jpg

"Dracula Killed Harker, Sun Down" (Santa Claus is Coming to Town)

http://content8.flixster.com/question/48/30/82/4830826_std.jpg

Not a Christmas song, but "Harry (Yer a Wizard)" (Brandy, You're a Fine Girl)

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/1/13/Silentnightdeadlynight.jpg/215px-Silentnightdeadlynight.jpg

"Silent Night, Deadly Night"

Band Aid ā€“ Do They Know It's Christmas


Here's a starting point, anyone wanna jump in?


It's Christmastime; there's no need to be afraid (It's Halloween, it is the time to be afraid...)
At Christmastime, we let in light and we banish shade  (It's Halloween, be full of fright as the demons parade...)
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmastime

But say a prayer to pray for the other ones
At Christmastime
It's hard, but when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears

And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime

The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Oh, where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Here's to you, raise a glass for ev'ryone
Here's to them, underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Feed the world
Feed the world

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again

I just submitted my own parody of "The Christmas Song," but this one involves a real-life American horror:

"The Congress Song"

US voting for a redneck Congress
Dow Jones dropping to zero
House of Reps being run by liars
The Senate run by rich a**holes

Everybody knows...

I'm wanting to do something with Rosemary's Baby and/or The Omen to the tune of "Mary, Did You Know?" But changing "Mary" to "Rosemary" would throw the pacing off. I guess "Scary, Did You Know?" works.

Same Old Trick or Treat

In addition to the above and aforementioned parodies, another has popped in my head and I might flesh it out:

Oh, the Enterprise captain's frightful
But the plane's already flightful
A gremlin, the wing has shown
Twilight Zone, Twilight Zone, Twilight Zone

Even if I do end up doing it I would like to see what your version of it looks like too...

Me and Chris both did "Here Comes Dracula" last year and they were too totally different parodies!
