Song Parodies, my version

I’ve been hearing a lot about parodies recently, so I figure I’ll join the throngs of people raving about parodies by writing something about (gasp) parodies. But this is just about one kind of parody: song parodies. I love song parodies, if they’re good. Or if I wrote them. And I do write them sometimes. Just this morning I started singing the song NYC from Annie. But instead of the traditional lyrics, I sang “XYZ, examine your zipper!” For the sake of propriety, I won’t go any further. But I’ve made quite a few of these little twists on songs. I recently pointed out to another WordPress blogger a parody on We Are the Champions, called We Don’t Need Toll Booths. It’s brilliant, though I do say so myself. Of course, I listen to song parodies as well. Some of the best of these are by Weird Al Yankovic. Now, I don’t like all of his work, but a lot of it is pretty funny. Eat It, Another One Rides the Bus, these are instant classics, just like their predecessors. And… um… that’s about all I have to say on the subject.

  1. I have never really listened to a song parody of anything. At least, as far as I can think of off the top of my head…
