a parody of "Celebration" by Kool & The Gang
The original version of this song praised Yahoo. . .well it was written back when Yahoo was still relevant, now the song reflects Yahoo's more current status as a has-been. One of many old ones that the link had changed and thus disappeared from the site.

a parody of "Ladies Night" by Kool & The Gang
The first song I released on AmIRight originally. As with all my originals, it was lost when files moved, so readding it. Pizza Night is a parody of the disco classic "Ladies Night" about a topic that is more appealing to my stomach.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Cherish"
The Lyrics:
I often pray before I lay down by your side
Why:
It should be "I often pray before I LIE down by your side," but "lie" doesn't rhyme with "pray."
Submitted by: Isac
"Celebration"
The Lyrics:
We gonna celebrate
Why:
The wording should be "We're gonna celebrate." (The word "gonna" could be made into "going to" -- but "We're going to celebrate" would sound odd in this song.)

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Funky Islamic Rockers"
Robert "Kool" Bell (bass) = MUHAMMAD BAYYAN Ronald Bell (tenor sax, keyboards, synthesizers) = KHALIS BAYYAN Kevin Bell (keyboards, guitars) = AMIR ABDUL-SALAAM BAYYAN, These 3 guys are brothers and they are Muslims. So is Cleveland Brown, the group's personal consultant + correspondence manager. Also, their #1 hit "Celebration" was inspired in part by the teachings of the Holy Quran. - from the liner notes of the band's 1979-1987 Best-Of.
