I'd like to join, but I was in group 5, so I'll give it a few days.

This group's topic is PARODY! Parody means that you take something and imitate it in a way to either mock it or make it funny.

What I'd like you guys to do is find a song you really like and rework the words so that it is either funny or it pertains to something you care about. I'd rather you guys choose well-known songs, but you can really choose any song you'd like. Please link us to the original music (youtube would probably be the easiest) and either post or link us to the lyrics.

Since many songs have lyrics that would probably be inappropriate for the forums, please try to choose songs without too much profanity or an excessive amount of innuendo. If you'd like, I can preview a song before you work on it.

You have until October 5th. Good luck! Smile

EDIT: Oh, and please note that parody in it's proper usage does not refer only to music; it can refer to prose, poetry, music, art, and just about whatever you'd like. For the purposes of this group, though, we'll be sticking with re-writing songs. That's more fun anyways, right? Smile

Part of the challenge, m'dear. Wink

PS, here's an example of what I'd like. Here's the parody I did, and here's a link to the original song. Lyrics can be found here.

I have something here, I think I'll do some more song paraody later. Star Wars theme was stuck in my head. I dont know how much I'm supposed to change.

"Yesterday" - by Darth Maul

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they're here to stay.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be,
Sith! There's a shadow hanging over me,
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why I had to go
I don't know he wouldn't say.
I did something wrong,
Now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, hate was such an easy game to play.
Now I'm in a deep hole.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Why he had to do it
I don't know he wouldn't say.
I did something wrong,
Now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, hate was such an easy game to play.
Now I'm in a deep hole.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm.

Orignial song is by Beatles with same title.
