Making Fun Of Music

Am I Right bills itself as "Making fun of music, one song at a time" but it's filled of misheard lyrics and parodies (the parodies are better). And, you can submit your own! Gosh-darn it if I didn't laugh out loud at this parody by Robert J. Pagliaro: "He's Gonna Bomb Japan." Here's a bit of it:

Dub-ya Bush he knows nothing
He thinks Iraq's Iran
And 'cause he knows nothing
He's gonna bomb Japan
He's gonna bomb Japan
He's gonna bomb Japan
Please, check out this song, and others too. And if you submit your own please let me know! I want to buy that guy a beer.

You also must check out W. Tong's songs and his blog The blog has a link to his older website -- not well organized but full of gems to be mined. F'rexample: Rush Limbaugh sings "I'm A Nazi." That's not a song parody that's a song put together from Limbaugh sound clips and amazingly set to music. Must be heard to be believed. This man is not fond of Republicans, but even conservatives who will disagree with his politics must give him some credit for his creativity. (He hosts the Limbaugh song, but he didn't write that one, BTW)

If I'd known that link was dangerous, I would have posted a warning! ;)

Oh it's definitely hazardous... I'm probably going to find myself singing the chorus to myself at the supermarket someday and get lynched. Damn that was funny.

That Rush parody is excellent.

Very very very clever. Love the "mega dildos" at the end.

Oh, god, Chuck, I've done it. I've just walked down the hall in my office whisling the refrain to "I'm a Nazi."

I hope no one asks the name of the tune.

Thanks for the plug - very much appreciated. I'm glad you enjoyed the parody.
