The Lyrics

This is a parody of mine that was published in my school's Literary Magazine 2010. It's similar to Bob Gomez's "Stupid Long Movie" except it's about music.
I'm on the phone with my boyfriend, he's upset
He's going off about crazy Syd Barrett
'Cuz he doesn't quite get Pink Floyd like I do

We're at my house it's a usual Friday night
No matter what, we always end up picking a fight
We might never find some music to chill to

He likes Yardbirds
I like Beatles
He more Moody Blues
I like the Eagles
I'm dreaming 'bout the day
We'll find songs we both like
Just like that pinball kid
Who is deaf, dumb, and blind

If you could see it's not much fun to argue with you
Can't we get along and pop in CD's
Music's not for me
Music's not for me

Bad song taste? I think it could be in my genes.
At least the two of us both like Bruce Springsteen
We hear "Hungry Heart" and I think to myself
"Now isn't this breezy"

We have a loathing for Lipps, Inc. "Funky Town"
We think that old song is vile, give it two thumbs down
Who's better? Godsmack or Boomtown Rats?
Who in their right mind asks a question like that?

He likes hip-hop
I like punk tunes
He's John Bonham
But I prefer Keith Moon
We find out we both think Janis Joplin is fine
We wish we could have seen her at Woodstock 6-9!

If you could see it's not much fun to argue with you
Can't we get along and pop in CD's
Music's not for me

He's got all Metallica and the Doors
I have The Who's entire discography-y-y
Music's not for me
Music's not for me

Oh, I remember when
We went to that show
Seemed to drag on past midnight
That pop music was a laugh
But it made both of us cry!
We know each others' songs
Arguing? There is no need!
We love Beatles and The Who
But we hate Slipknot and Creed!

If you could see it's not much fun to argue with you
Can't we get along and pop in CD's
Music's not for me

He's got all Metallica and the Doors
I have Pink Floyd's entire discography-y-y
Music's not for me
He's got all Metallica and the Doors
I have Pink Floyd's entire discography-y-y
Music's not for me
Music's not for me

Have I ever thought just maybe
That we both agree
Music's not for me.

I'm back!!! Carly, another stellar parody from you! Yeah, I remembered that me and one of my boyfriends as well as my other friends have different tastes in music. I listen to XTC, Level 42, and other 80s music, although I also listen to modern music as well. Heck, I listen to all kinds of music. I got into classical and country when I was 12. But right now, I'm interested in World Cultural music such as Kratae, this Thailand pop star which I'll tell you about some other time. Anyways, here's 5's!
