Hm...how about "Who'll Stop This Train" to "Who'll Stop The Rain" by CCR? That's a possibility.

I have a "Taxi To Ride", but that one is far from Ages Material, I wrote that like in the beginning of my career. So I'll pull a new one out of the lot, and won't bother with that Lemon.

I have an idea...if Matthias doesn't want to enter an old Beatles rip, I do one myself! Except instead of 'Tikka To Ride', I'll do 'Paperback Writer', probably into somethin about backseat drivers.

Curiously enough, the song was covered by Sweet for a compilation abum that I have...and I ripped them two events ago!

Upon realizing that "Who'll Stop The Rain" was actually released in 1970, I need to go back to the drawing board. (c'mon, think Cat think...)

Working on a parody of "Up around the bend" by CCR (The intro is my ringtone  :) )working title is  "i cannot pretend"
all about the stresses of getting from A to B using public transport.

I changed my OS, the other one was too short.

Now I'm doing "They Delayed My Flight" to the Beach Boys' "Wouldn't It Be Nice," it's almost done and I'll submit it tonight.

EDIT: Submitted!!

We still need a parody from Wolverine.
Since Chucky didn't update yesterday, I'll give you one more day.
If it's not in by tomorrow, you'll have to sit out this round.

Sorry Matthias.  Been distracted by work.  And then my first idea for a OS was already used by Dave.  But I've submitted a song and will post the link here tomorrow.
