The Lyrics

blah blah blah, rate n comment pls, the reaosn for a comma is to take a breath, then if u do ull comprnde pacin
Fed up of VCR they're just Twenty 02
Got a new Disc player, cos I'm richer than you
I first had a red laser but now I have blue
Oh-a oh

Used a credit card to pay for my DVD
An excellent machine and great technology
I even wrote a congrats letter to Sony
Oh-a oh

My Children love it

Oh-a oh

And so I know think

DVD killed, the VCR
DVD killed, the VCR

Digital Versatile Disks
Oh-a-a-a oh

And know I am throwing out all my videos
But then I remember than not so long ago
VCR was overtaking the Radio
Oh-a oh

DVD is cool
Oh-a oh

Yeah tis really cool

DVD killed, the VCR
DVD killed, the VCR

DVD killed, the VCR
DVD killed, the VCR

Fun concept! Favorite line: "I first had a red laser but now I have blue" .

Don't you hate planned obsolescence?

You're on top form lately, Josh. You've made two really good parodies over the weekend. All I can say is congrats! 455

Good, a bit off pacing though. I think you should have somehow extended the chorus's line... but otherwise, great parody!

if you see, i put a comma, so take a breath (which commas signify) n then go into the next bit
Tony - April 04, 2005 - Report this comment
Good idea. Sorry, the comma explanation doesn't work -- a comma deos not represent a rhythmic beat. Besides, sung the way you suggested, the accents would still be off. But nice parody.

I better pacing fit would have been "DVD killed my old VCR"
Josh 2 - April 04, 2005 - Report this comment
um...... nah

Awesome concept, carried out pretty well. You do need a better chorus, though, the pacing is pretty lousy.

Pretty Good, but im sure you could have come up with a better line than "DVD Is cool"
Josh 2 - December 04, 2005 - Report this comment
Are you denying the fact that DVD's are cool? lol
Red Ant - January 07, 2006 - Report this comment
Well, VCR is still viable for all of those old movies which in all likelyhood will not be re-released on DVD. Good write up.

I don't think the DVD has killed VCRs, but this parody is good anyway.

(Classic tourney) Pacing off through most of this.
Jeff Reuben - January 16, 2006 - Report this comment
Classic--I'm thinking you can stretch one of the syllables (DVD killed the V...E...C-R) to make the pacing in the title work if you sing it. Decent song.
Matthias - January 16, 2006 - Report this comment
(Classic) Funny, but the pacing was pretty darn off...
Larry - January 17, 2006 - Report this comment
Classic- Kinda funny.
Johnny D - January 21, 2006 - Report this comment
(Classic) Witty and timely.

Great concept, but with the pacing is a bit messy. 4-5-5
