I meant nature, such as the outdoors, and things Jack
This would go under Emotions which is a completely diffrent Topic, that I may have in the future

I might do "Moose" to Santana's "Smooth"
OR
"Quit Lighting Flames In My Tent" to The Backstreet Boys's, "Quit Playing Games With My Heart"
OR
"Hiking In The Park" to Smash Mouth's, "Walking On The Sun"

I find it ironic that there's a song in this era called 'Waterfalls' which could easily be parodied into...well, 'Waterfalls' but Jeff Reuben's done it already! Typical.

After my Billy Joel parody is released, I'll get straight to work on my parody for this event. It will be based on 'All The Small Things' by blink-182 (ironically mentioned in the Event 1 thread), probably into 'All My Camp Trips' or something along those lines.

I'm using www.top40db.net . I haven't decided on a song yet, but that's not the site's fault.

Shouldn't the time frame be 1995-1999? Otherwise years ending in 5 and 0 qualify for 2 rounds.

No, 2000 has 2 attempts to be used as parody fodder
Next 1995 can be used for foddering parodies
Then 1990

I felt like doing this because it leaves people with an open 5 years to work with, and I'm not worried about people using the same song twice, because the varriety of Topics will interfer with that.
If you happen to luck out and you and have one song that fits two Topics in a row, then you deserve the chance to submit it again, because you are damned lucky

Red Ant, I haven't released it yet, But I hope you don't get mad at my parody:)  Oh-yeah--My original idea was Nude Beach to One Week, I was able to write it, but performing that one would have taken weeks to get comfortable enough. . .I'll still release it someday, but this other one I had already written, and it's ready to perform. . .so it will be up within the next few days.

Are parodies about cartoon characters based on real animals allowed, or is that pushing it too much? I think I might write what I'm thinking of no matter what, but it would be nice if I could use it.

Sorry to let you guys down, but the big "U" word has reared its ugly head. I'd write a parody about it, but alas I need to find new work, and quickly, which unfortunately takes precedence over this (and other competitions).

I'll still vote on round 1 though.

"Murder In National Parks"
http://amiright.com/parody/2000s/georgestraitandalanjackson2.shtml

TOS is "Murder On Music Row", a duet by George Strait and Alan Jackson which, as I recall, debuted right at the beginning of 2000.
This has both the duet AND the Lefty Frizzell original:
