"Michael Kamen Died"

The Lyrics

This song is to Michael Kamen what "Freebird" was to Duane Allman, and what "Killing the Thing That You Love" by Styx was to John Lennon. Kamen will be deeply missed.
**Prelude**
(Background noises are heard. CNN, BBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc., are all reporting on the death of rock and classical music legend Michael Kamen.)

Is Michael Kamen.......OUT THERE???.....
**Prelude**

(orchestral intro)

Hello
I hear that you are not with us
You did Pink Floyd's best album
Left your wife and kids at home
Go back, now
To when their sales were down
"Animals" caused much pain
"The Wall" made them big again
At last
You're now on everybody's list
Bryan Adams calls
Can a Grammy really hurt?

There's lots of pain, our hearts are weeping
You gave rock and roll a new horizon
Do "The Wall" and everybody raves
I think everyone hear what you're sayin'
And I am a teen boy, I have an album
Orchestra's conducted by you
Roger Waters bashed education
I know your songs, they could be undserstood
I can't believe you're dead
I have become uncomfortably numb
I have become uncomfortably numb

(Guitar solo 1; variation of chorus)

I have become uncomfortably numb

Ok
You did the Division (Bell)
There'll be no more ...Waaaall!!!!
I never knew that you were sick
I can't stand up
I do believe I'm breaking down
On Christmas, I want to get the show
The Film "Pink Floyd: The Wall"

There's lots of pain, our hearts are weeping
You gave rock and roll a new horizon
Do "The Wall" and everybody raves
I think everyone hear what you're sayin'
And I am a teen boy who heard a classic song
Out of the corner of my ear
That song is called "Brick in the Wall"
And I can put my finger on it now
The album's mine
It's star is gone
And I have become uncomfortably numb....

(Guitar solo 2; variation of verses; the best guitar solo I have ever heard in my life)
Michael Kamen 1948-2003

Good tribute Chris.

Very nice tribute, But what connection does Duane Allman have to "Freebird"? Was it written about Duane? I thought it was written about Ronnie VanZant. Nice work on your Parody!

Sorry , I looked it up, and you are right Chris. I'm a fan of Allman Bros. and L. Skynard , this was info I should have known. My mistake.

Chris Bodily is to Michael Kamen as Elton John is to Princess Di. I loved the work Kamen did, too, and was shocked to hear he passed on. :( Maybe you can rewrite the verses to mention his work with Guns n Roses, The Berlin Wall concert, and Metallica. Nice tribute, dood!

The pacing was kind of off, but I still loved it. Michael Kamen will be missed dearly.
