The Lyrics

It sounds weary, gonna stall
Get on that phone again serviceman to call
Prob'ly dial him up four more times this month
The problem can't be found
It's a fridge with a troubled motor
I should shut it down
Just a fridge with a troubled motor
I should shut it down

It breaks down too much and spoils the meat
And ice cream melts so fast in this blistering heat
I'll empty it, and throw all my food out
Then buy more food in town
For a fridge with a troubled motor
I should shut it down
Just a fridge with a troubled motor
I should shut it down

Fails to keep things cold, fails on ice
It's time has come to die, wish I could pay the new one's price
This one's pure scrap, cause it just won't stay fixed
But I've still half a mind
That this fridge with a troubled motor
Has seen the end of the line
Yeah, this fridge with a troubled motor
Seen the end of the line

having just tried this OS, I empathise - nicely done Tim! - 555

Cute idea. I have the feeling you just recently found this site. You seem to be a talented sort, I was wondering what part of the world you hailed from. I did hear your recordings, and I wondered also if that was you on the piano.

Stuart, I know, I loved your version too. I had just posted my version when I saw yours. Rick, newbies do stick out don't they? Yep, I only found this site because of Spaff.com. I think Robert Lund's "Ding Fries are Done" is the best Christmas song ever! I am a transplanted Californian, on my way to Washington. Talented? Not really, I was a music major in college, but dropped out. Piano lessons were a waste on me. I am a voice/clarinet guy. My "Devil Went Down to Georgia" recording is my favorite.

One of the best of the "fridge" titles.

these words with the that beautiful melody just killed me...5s

I did a "fridge" version, too (which I feel morally bound to plug, seeing as it lost 28 votes in The Crash): http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/simonandgarfunkel5.shtml
This was kind of funny as well :-)

As you may know from comments or my own songs on soundclick, recordings are my specialty here. (after Spaff/Lund anyway) I found your "Devil" track hard to listen to because the recording is so muddy, and I believe you used the original lyrics. The other ones were better.I have done composing for the clarinet, as my wife Mari (Also on the parody list at 65) is in a woodwind quintette that I write for.

This was quite good! I was going to plug Phil's, but seeing that he already did, I will plug our Fridge song instead: ;-)

I got a call the other day wanting to know if my fridge was running. I paid it no mind and hung up. This morning I noticed a fowl smell in the kitchen. I guess the caller was on to something because now I have to plug my fridge... into the wall.

This was fridgin' good. 5s.

You compressed this into a good parody..
Tim Mayfield - November 16, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks John, Alvin, Phil, Meriadoc, Guy and AFW! Our fridge did just die, kind of a motivation for the song. Something about a relay switch. Rick, considering the 'Devil' song was recorded before I got real equipment, I think it came out pretty good. Try recording to tape four times without a multitrack. I should re-record it anew.

Tim, great job here, 5's all 'round.

And since so many others are plugging their "fridge" songs, I might as well join in the fun and plug my "bitch" song:
