Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Applies to both rehashes
Well, I came upon a corporate sponsor
He was searching for a new ad
And I asked him if he'd had enough nostalgia
Said "I'm trying to sell some soft drinks
And I need a little inspiration"
I said reminding people of their youth
Takes imagination

We are star struck, we are olden
We're all part of a product tie-in
And we've got to get ourselves
Into a buy-in

By the time they re-hashed Woodstock
We were pushing middle age
But they got us to the stage
Filled with advertising
And I saw that P.T. Barnum was right
Every minute there's one born
And I watched it all with scorn
Which is not surprising

We were star struck, now we're olden
We're all part of a sales campaign
And it's just the sorry truth
It's not the same

You didn't have the comments section working on "I Hate LA" so I just wanted to say here: "Blythe Street's not so bad anymore - they cleaned it up..." ;-)

This is great; don't know why more people don't vote (threes? WTF?) Hang in there.

Maybe they cleaned it up some, but when I was there, if you drove down it in any kind of nice car, six guys would come running out of the trashy apartments to see what kind of dope you were there to buy. If you just made a wrong turn, you were fair game, then. I kid you not!

Another great one, Slam. Letterman's #1 Lesson from Woodstock: "We are stardust. We are golden. We are going to look really stupid to future generations."

Ah, Woodstock...

Remember that Pepsi commercial from 1994? John Sebastian of the Lovin' Spoonful: "Joe, remember when we did this 25 years ago?" Joe McDonald of Country Joe & the Fish: "No!"

Actually it should have been the other way around. Sebastian was supposedly tripping on acid when he performed.
