Default Song Parodies!

PG rating for the time being.

I'm quite into parodying songs on the go as some rl friends may tell you, and I've included some for fun in previous stories. So I'll be posting some song parodies I made up a while ago (coupled with a youtube link to the song being parodied as well - I usually find it's better to listen to the song while reading the parody lyrics). Cheesiness ought to be expected with some. =p

I also will take on prompts! That is, you can request a song and theme for me to try to parody the lyrics too (although the theme will need to be Pokemon. I won't necessarily take on every prompt though (partly depends on interest/time for it) but I'll be trying to do so. I like a challenge.

Probably will later edit an index here listing the songs when I post more.


------------------

First up is one I wrote last year, and is a parody of the Billy Joel song For the Longest Time, one of my favourite songs. Some themes here that should be evident from the song title. ;p



The Day Care's Sublime


Whoa, oh, oh, oh
The Day Care's sublime
Whoa, oh, oh
The Day Care's

If you Bounce'd away from me tonight
There would still be reason to go fight
What else could I do
I'm so Attracted by you
This proves just how the Day Care is sublime

Once I thought my Trainer up'd and gone
Now I know that breeding shall go on
That's when you found me
When you sat yourself upon me
This proves just how the Day Care is sublime

Whoa, oh, oh, oh
The Day Care's sublime
Whoa, oh, oh
The Day Care's

I'm that Skitty you're hearing on the lawn
Asking you to leave that Waterfall
For how I need you
And how you needed me too
This proves just how the Day Care is sublime

Maybe I am not very strong
But I'm sure in hindsight
You'll see we belong
Maybe we should have used Safeguard
And though it's bizarre
You're the one that I adore

Who knows how much further we'll go on
Maybe once more I'll be sat upon
I'll take my chances
I forgot how nice Cute Charm is
This proves just how the Day Care is sublime

I had second thoughts at the start
I said to myself
You're as fat as a tart
Now I know the Wailord that you are
You're very large by far
And it's more than I hoped for

I don't care if you've had other flings
I have been engrossed by lesser things
I want you so bad
Just don't make me a doormat
I intend to show you the Day Care's sublime

Whoa, oh, oh, oh
The Day Care's sublime
Whoa, oh, oh
The Day Care's sublime
(Fade)



That's going to be as high brow as it may get. ;p

Default Re: Song Parodies!

Working on some others atm but here's one I made in the meantime on an excellent song House of the Rising Sun. The Animals version as it is imo the best and should be how you imagine this parody is sung too. =p Went with the same rhyming scheme bar the opening and last verse, but I feel it works.

As per someone's suggestion elsewhere, two links: an instrumental version of the song, and the sung version. Take your pick! Or go without!



House of the Trick Master


There is a house north of Slateport
The House of the Trick Master
And it's been the ruin of many a trainer
And Mew, I know I'm one

My mother was in contests
She made my Running Shoes
My father warned of that dark house
And that it would confuse

Now the only thing the Master needs
Is a player and a maze
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when we’re in a haze

Oh mother, tell your children
That I’ve been here since winter
There’s no exit, only misery
In the House of the Trick Master

Well, I got one foot in a trapdoor
The other foot is missing
But I’ve found myself some Harbor Mail
That’s my only blessing

There is a house north of Slateport
The House of the Trick Master
And it's been the ruin of many a trainer
And Mew, I know I'm one




An admittedly darker take on the location in RSE, haha. Given some trainers complain about being stuck in the place though, it's not that unlikely stuff goes wrong. =p

Default Re: Song Parodies!

Anyways, here's the first parody I've written as a prompt! It came from Stoneman6666 of fanfiction.net, who suggested doing the song Starlight by Muse. He also supplied the opening three lines which did prove to be a bit tricky, especially as the original lyrics repeated themselves! In the end I made the theme of the song to be my personal take of part of the game FireRed/LeafGreen, compared to how things happened in the original RBY games. The Sevii Islands weren't my most favourite addition I guess - they were fine, but not great and in the end I wanted to get going to the 8th gym already.

Sung version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4P3SHXQEpRU
Instrumental: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukoYZLT0JnE



Sidetracked


Far away
This ship has taken me far away
Far away to the Sevii
With a guy I had met just once before

Victory
I will be chasing Victory
But I do not see its Road
I don’t know where we are going anymore

Beat the Elite Four
I just wanted to beat the Elite Four

Side quest
You’re giving me a side quest
Something about finding plates
Why is Team Rocket trying to steal them

I’ll do what you say
If you promise to take me back home
Take me back home

What is Moltres doing here
Maybe it got sidetracked too
What is Moltres doing here
Maybe it got sidetracked too

Beat the Elite Four
I just wanted to beat the Elite Four

Far away
This ship has taken me far away
Far away to the Sevii
With a guy I had met just once before

I’ll do what you say
If you promise to take me back home
Take me back home

What is Moltres doing here
Maybe it got sidetracked too
What is Moltres doing here
Maybe it got sidetracked too

Beat the Elite Four
I just wanted to beat the Elite Four
I just wanted to beat...




I hope you all know what the Sevii Islands are!

Another prompt, and one I must say I enjoyed, although it's probably because I'm a tragic Beatles fan. baltar of fanfiction.net suggested the following:


Quote:
i think the beatles song 'paperback writer' could be made into a song called 'pokemon trainer'

This fitted rather nicely, I felt. XD

Pokemon Trainer


Pokemon Trainer (Pokemon Trainer)

Dear Sir or Madam, will you see my Poke?
It took me years to train, will you take a look?
I got him from a Prof named after a tree
And I was quite bored, so I became a Pokemon Trainer,
Pokemon Trainer!

So I went and travelled, all across the land
Beating Bug Catchers with my one-man band
I defeated a gym, and got a HM
And prize money is why I became a Pokemon Trainer,
Pokemon Trainer!

Pokemon Trainer (Pokemon Trainer)

So I‘m training up to beat the Elite Four
I'll be heading off in a week or more
I can do contests if you like my style
I can even teach you how to become a Pokemon Trainer,
Pokemon Trainer!

If you really like it you could pet him here
Just be careful not to let your children near
If you want to fight then let’s try tonight
But I need a break and I want to go to the Game Corner,
Yes the Game Corner!

Pokemon Trainer (Pokemon Trainer)

Default Re: Song Parodies!

Back from holidays so have a relatively simple song parody for now. Not quite as funny as others may have been too, so I'm curious to see how it turned out anyway. Taken from the HGSS perspective, but arguably it can be applied to nearly any game anyway easily enough.

The song is Wild World by Cat Stevens, which is a neat chill song imo. No change with the song title here.

Sung version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8pvXLVu8Yk
Instrumental: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxJ4meJkt7A



Wild World


Now that you’re leaving town so soon
And want to beat the first gym by next moon
I’m still not sure that you should be leavin'
Trainer, I'm grievin'
But if you wanna leave, take good care
I’ll give this nice Pokegear to wear
But don’t spend all your money on Potions there

Oh, trainer, trainer, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just with the starter
Oh, trainer, trainer, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, trainer

I’ll save your money and see what I can do
Maybe buy you a berry or two
But don’t be afraid to seek shelter
Remember your father
But if you wanna leave, take good care
I hope you catch a lot of Pokemon out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad Teams, beware

Oh, trainer, trainer, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just with the starter
Oh, trainer, trainer, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, trainer

Trainer, I love you
But if you wanna leave, take good care
I hope you catch a lot of Pokemon out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad Teams, beware

Oh, trainer, trainer, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just with the starter
Oh, trainer, trainer, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, trainer

Oh, trainer, trainer, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just with the starter
Oh, trainer, trainer, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, trainer





Good old mums. It's easy to forget them sometimes. Well, unless you're playing HGSS and they go shopping again. =p
