The Lyrics

The 15 names mentioned here are in no particular order. EVERYONE mentioned has inspired me to write better parodies, given good advice, etc. I was ready to quit here a while back, but I'm glad I didn't because of what a few people told me. So a friendly shout out to the top 15 I could think of ( I know there's many more I missed ). Just a tribute parody, nothing more or less. PS- If you have ever seen this video, I wrote this parody with my clothes on. :)

Yippee! I've got a fan! Time to break out the champaign and overpriced hors d'oeuvres. I'd have given you 5s, even if you hadn't mentioned me.

Tooting my horn here, but it's nice to have finally been mentioned in song around here. I won't vote, because I DKTOS and it just wouldn't seem unbiased. :)

(sniff) I actually got a mention in a song other than in the brady twin's one! You're gonna please a s***load of people, Red Ant! I think the real message here is thank YOU!!!

Seems to me that every month there's one or two newbies that finds this place, gets very excited over it, realises it's a hobby to their liking, posts a lot of parodies, make some friends… only to burn out, disappear, never to be heard of again (or maybe after a long hiatus). The disappearance is often, though not always, preceded by a bunch of parodies to well known originals and in the hey-why-am-not-getting-the-votes-I-deserve genre or a tribute parody or two to other writers.

Why some people never enters that phase or why some who do gets pass it we'll probably never know, but it seems to have something to do with being able too handle low votes, no comments and to realise that not every writer in the community is here to read every day and that even a brilliant parody can be ignored if it's posted on what turns out to be the wrong day. Now, the fact that you keep writing to your favourite band Alice in Chains despite the fact that you by now must have realised that they are FAR FROM vote magnets tells me that you probably have what it takes to be one of those who's still around next year (though from the large amount of parodies in a short time I'd say that you're still in danger of a sudden burn out hiatus, at least a short one).

Anyway, I've collected a bunch of links that you might find useful in the future, if you're not already familiar with them, here goes:

This­ is a work in progress, a questions about what should be in a FAQ for AmIright, but as a relative newcomer I figure you might be able to contribute with something too it.

Dammit, K1...why are you ALWAYS stealing my comments?? That is exactly what I was going to say! ; )

Honestly, Red Ant...I can dig this...=) I love writing tributes...and I am flattered to be included in yours! Thanks!!
Guy - March 30, 2005 - Report this comment
You go Red Ant. Glad to have helped you and as I told you once in a comment, I think or I should have, is that you have potential and it is still true, but it takes a lot of work to get good at this stuff. And what K1 said, by all means. Very good write up K1!

Nice job, Red Ant. I know what you mean. I get most of my ideas from reading the work of others.
Kristof Robertson - March 30, 2005 - Report this comment
Good for you, Antman! You can stroke my ego ANY time you want to. :-) Seriously, stick around, keep writing, enjoy the purple patches and work your way thru the dry times, and you too, my son, will end up a screwed-up (but loving it) Amiright addict like the rest of us. Most importantly...if you really love this, don't give up! RAWK ON!!!! Oh, a little p.s.....the more different types of music you listen to, the more fuel you'll have for your parodies....even consider parodying songs you dislike, if they give you the structure to be able to write what you want to. Case in point: I hate "Supercalifrag..", but it is such a GREAT song to parody I've done it twice. I'll shut up now...

I would like to thank everyone who voted and commented. The main reason for this parody was not to "please" people, but to pick the 15 most influencial people I could that have helped me. Several listed here have the highest overall rated parodies on this site ( whos OS I don't know so I can't rate it and therefore made this in exchange ), many who have left comments ( or a vote ) on my parodies, many have been cleared up misunderstandings, and Chucky G. is obvious. A special thanks goes out to Peter Andersson for all the links ( 6 I count ) and tips. I am stunned at the length of your post. I am slowing down some now though and will probably release 2-4 parodies a week . AIC is nearly exhausted ( well, not quite ), as I do not like to parody a song more than twice, but there is plenty of material to work with out there. You are correct about going from "obscure" songs to older/classic/well-known material, and making a "tribute" parody, though I just prefer more modern stuff ( average age of music about 1992 or so ). PS to all- This song did happen to "pace" 5, but TOS has almost zero rhyming, so I didn't follow that at all.

Well written. Your content was lacking a certain something, though... ;)

OK, I take back my comment about you needing a remedial rock course. But there's a statute of limitations even on such fine posterior-puckering as this.

what a piece of dribble. 1-1-1 for kissing asses it's no way to win votes. it makes me sick
Red Ant - March 30, 2005 - Report this comment
To ass kiss police, maybe if you would have read the comments you would have noticed I am not ass kissing. What did you expect I would get, 14 555's on this? I sure didn't. It was just a tribute to people who helped me out but I couldn't rate their stuff because I DKTOS. To conclude your retarded perception of me: I just Thank you, nothing more.

Wow...to be mentioned in someone else's parody...that's more of an honor than getting tons of votes and popular feedback like those great writers in the top 10-15. This a very expressive idea and it means a lot. I'm glad I could be a good friend of yours and especially you didn't burn out on us. Well, I can't vote since the only Alanis Morrisette song I've ever heard was the one where she's angry at her ex-boyfriend (don't know what it's called). But thank you, and you're welcome.
Kristof Robertson - March 31, 2005 - Report this comment
To Scrawny Johnny...the Alanis song where she's angry at her ex-boyfriend? Isn't that every bloody song she's ever recorded? :-)
Red Ant - March 31, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks again for all the comments. AFW-Thank you. Jake A Ralphing- Parody may have been lacking, but so was TOS in a way, so I must say I nailed it. ;). Michael Pacholek- I am not aware of that statute, but posterior pucking as you say has amassed 11 votes on this, so maybe sleeping your way to the top is the right way....NOT. ass kiss police-glad you disliked it. ass kiss police police- LOL, what does this site have an Internal affairs? ( or as Mel Gibson might say, "Infernal Repairs" ) Scrawny Johnny, that song is " You Outta Know " ( which You Outta Know lol ). Kristof Robertson- I think her first 2 CD's were like that, but changed a bit over time. The only suprise I got on this is that no one commented on the fact that I did this with my clothes on. :)
