The Lyrics

A lot better my earlier version.
Meeting you with a view to a spill
Urinating in a public place; need to chill
Daylight exposes me
But you know that I'm planning on making
a scene
Could it be my whole world's falling apart
A stupid why? It's history crumbling apart
The weekends' why? Until we...

Got into a bar fight
I didn't mean to punch him out
Got into a bar fight
To fatal sounds of broken glass
Got into a bar fight
I didn't mean to punch him out
Got into a bar fight

The choice for me is the view to a spill
Between the shades, it's vandalism standing still
Those first crystal bottles
Falls as glass knives cuts your body
First time in weeks
To drench your skin with bartender's rosy stain
A chance to find a fuel for the flame
A chance to cry until we...

Got into a bar fight
I didn't mean to punch him out
Got into a bar fight
To fatal sounds of broken glass
Got into a bar fight
I didn't mean to punch him out
Got into a bar fight
When all we see is a view to a spill
Here you go.

Fitu---I haven't really rated any of your songs, but I do hope you don't rate people 1's to get back at them. . .I don't know If Max Power has ever 1'd your songs, but I do think that sometimes many people are very rude to you, but that doesn't mean it's ok to be rude to someone else, otherwise no one will ever give your parodies a chance. . .to be 100% honest, I know you are trying, and I know that your parodies need some work--but that's why you don't see my name in there bashing you or 1ing you, I only one a parody that blatantly didn't try or just used it as an excuse to bash, that's not what I see with you, but going and giving ones out to songs that clearly are good, that won't get people to give you a fair read or rate your songs fairly. I don't know who gave you the ones, and some of the comments have to hurt, I would imagine, but you will always get a fair chance with me--however if I go to one of my parodies that I worked hard on and recorded and someone 1'd it and then turn around and said I did it with open arms, I'd be hard pressed to ever give that person any positive attention. Please don't take that the wrong way, but a lot of negative energy exists on these boards, people 1 each other even though the site isn't at all set up in a competitive atmosphere--unless the song truly deserves ones in each category, they shouldn't be giving out, but the only way that peace can exist here, and fair ratings for that matter, is if we don't play into giving ones that aren't deserved. If people know it gets to you, then they will keep doing it. When someone ones me, or twos me and I know that the song is better than that, the others bring my score back up anyway and in the end the song still ends up OK, but if you turn everyone against your work, than it will never get acceptable scores, and I know that's not what you want. Sorry guys, thanks for your time. . .BTW, I didn't one you either, but I did rate your song--you can probably guess what I rated it:)

Thanks guys ( except for you Fitu ).

That's a tricky Duran Duran song to parody, Max Power. You did a good job of satirizing ol' Simon Le Boner here!

(SOTM) Pretty poetry of "the bartender's rosy stain" makes this memorable.
Peter Andersson - January 15, 2007 - Report this comment
SOTM - Feels a bit erratic to me, but who am I to complain, my own attempt at this song a couple of years back never even reached completion so you have me beat no matter how much I w(h)ine. ;-)

(SOTM) The funniest parody I've seen of TOS since "A View of a Quail". Man, that chorus really sticks out. But what does a "view to a spill" mean? Did you spill beer all over the guy and then "accidentally" punch him out? Oh, well... You did a marvelous job at Bondifying a bar fight. 555

It's supposed to be a sequel to Leslie Nielson's film " License To Spill ".

SOTM-On most of my SOTM responses prior to this one, I left long messages, yours I already did that when I hit it first time around. . .re-echo pretty good job here Max.

(SOTM) Hmmm...interesting. Nice imagery.

It seems everybody's getting into Bar Fights these days, it's becoming our nation's past time
Red Ant - January 27, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) "Falls as glass knives cuts your body" was an interesting line, and subbing "history" for "mystery" was good too.
Michael McVey - January 28, 2007 - Report this comment
The bar-fight business is why I gave a 4 for humor, but this is a good rewrite of the original.---MM

(SOTM) as I scroll down to post my copied favourite line, I can't believe Ag has already made my comment before me, but I'll post it anyway - "To drench your skin with bartender's rosy stain" is positively poetic - Shakespearian dare I say - as are the two lines following - 555
Kristof Robertson - January 29, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) A number of examples of great imagery and poetic use of language, but the whole thing doesn't QUITE pull together for me, Max. However this was a great attempt! 544

(SOTM) Not sure what 'spill' means here, but definitely not lacking in the imagery dept.
Phil Alexander - January 31, 2007 - Report this comment
There are bits I like in this, but came away feeling somewhat dissatisfied - not 100% sure why, though. Maybe running different choruses would have helped (the OS certainly gets more than a little boring in the chorus department); maybe it's a combination of some nice imagery in a rather vague context, if you see what I mean.
Glen S - January 31, 2007 - Report this comment
Not bad, not an easy song to parody. The refrain worked better than I thought it would. Good work, Max.
wannabemustangjockey - February 01, 2007 - Report this comment
SOTM - I never liked the OS, which may bias me somewhat. Your parody is an interesting concept, but it's too bad the song is so short. You could have taken this idea far had the OS allowed you.
