"Drone On"

The Lyrics

DKTOS? Hear the song here. Don't know the artist? Check out the Wikipedia entry. Though this isn't a bad song, it was played to death, so it gets lampooned. Wilson Phillips should be happy that someone here remembers them (AFAIK, this is the first parody of any of their songs).
[intro]

What can I say? (I say? - I'll say)
This song was horrendously overplayed! (oy vey!)
Thought it once great, shows what hormones will do
Who cared about lyrics when Chynna P was cute!
She opened her lips - harmonized...
mmm... but this song is dreck, and here's - the reasons why
Its...

Cliche and boring, awful, manufactured,
fem-pop sound had too much hype
Famous rock daughters - their moment in the sun,
burning out, but just won't die!
Plug your ears
(Plug your ears) if you're sane!
What's coming your way
Is a droned..... song - that irritates
Can I drone..... on for one more play?
Make you run away.......

Drone on for one more day!

[short solo]

Echos are lame? (echos are lame!(are lame!(lame!)))
Mmmm... they're part of the way we rose to fame!
Just how much can you take of this song's sappiness?
(No tellin'!) Anymore I'd wish I were tone deaf!
(Oh....) Write down some lyrics, sing them twice
(Write down some lyrics, sing them twice (what the?))
When I think I've changed my mind
The chorus grinds!
No no!

I say this ditty's gonna make you want to,
go on out and maim a mime!
It drives me crazy - all this rapid singing 'til,
they finally make a rhyme!
Here I go
(Here he goes) raise the gain!
Get into your brain
As I drone...... on - and on today!
Yes I drone...... on for one more play
Keeping dogs at bay!...
(Vocals out of your range)
Drone on for one more day!

I know this causes pain
But I - drone on still anyway
Sanity's down the drain...

Yeah, I know this causes pain
But I - drone on still anyway
You can't "break free", I feel you strain!

Some day, somebody's gonna blah blah blah blah,
blah blah blah make you cry? (what's the line?)
How could I forget it I've only heard this song,
oh about ten thousand times!
Still I go
On you know (no!) I'm deranged (oh!)
This'll blow you 'way
'cause I drone...... on - and on today! (meow!)
Yes I drone on..............

Don't you know? - things will change!
"Things'll go your way"
But I DRONE..... on - and on today!
Yes I drone on......

Yes I drone on
Yeah, I could drone on

[even if I parodied the remaining few outro
vocals, you would no doubt have turned the
song off by now, so you aren't missing them!]

Yuck, Thanks for introducing me to this...... tune...... if you want to call it that.... Anyway, you're parody of making fun of it, and the blah-blah-blah's were inspired!!! 5's.... Oh gawd! The song repeats it's self on that website.... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Adagio - April 17, 2006 - Report this comment
After a while listening to it, I remembered it....eeew.. Yes, and it does repeat on the website...I could not get there fast enough to turn it off. : D Good parody, made use of all their little tricks (like echo., etc.)

I actually liked this song, but I definitely know the feeling: http://www.amiright.com/parody/80s/thebangles13.shtml. I even used the word "droning." Five sets of earplugs.

For me the song didn't play on the page you linked (that should have been a karmatic sign to stop right there) but I went ahead and (unfortunately) found it here: www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/5076/music.html

Needless to say - but I will anyway - I totally agree with your judgment on this so called song.

555, funny(I don't hate this song, but it has been played too much). This is the first time this band's been parodied? Just like I'm the first to parody "The Smithereens" and "The Jayhawks".
Rick C - April 17, 2006 - Report this comment
Like with the OS, I especially liked the ending. 555
Dee Range - April 17, 2006 - Report this comment
555 If you listened to this song 10,000 times, you need to change radio stations. I couldn't even listen to half of the song on you link...NMTOM. Good putdown of it!
Tommy Turtle - April 17, 2006 - Report this comment
"maim a mime"? Cute line, but at least mimes don't throw inane songs at us. 555
btw, while you were MIA last week I did "Footnotes" as suggested - thanks for the idea.

I actually always liked the original. But this was a hilarious parody anyway, so many funny lines. 555's

Thanks Matthias, Pat, Mike, Peter, Alvin, AFW, Step-chan, Rick C, Dee, TT and Larry.

Matthias: The "blah-blah" part was only included after I tried other things that didn't work to the ridicuously fast-paced chorus. I'm glad you liked my laziness there. ;-)

Pat: Those tricks make a song like this very hard to do well live.

Michael: Checked out yours already. I liked it too, the first 10,000 times I heard it.

Peter: I commend you for going out of your way to find such disappointment. ;-)

AFW: Good puns there.

Step-chan: Yes, it is, which is odd considering this CD went diamond (10 million sales) and spawned 4 top 10 hits.

Rick: I was so glad when this was finally done since I listened to TOS probably 20 more times while making the parody.

Dee: NMTOM? You'll have to fill me in there. I never listened to this willingly on the radio, but saw the video plenty - 2 of these girls, aside from having the pipes, also had hot bods. I never thought to use mute.

TT: I saw "Footnotes".

Larry: Thanks - my favorites had to be the echos line and, oddly enough, "(meow!)".

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.....!!! I liked the original song in it's time (way back in my girlie days) - but I liked this parody waaaaaayyyy better! 555!

I must agree - the parody is way way better than the OS. A fine put down if there ever were a put down. Excellent!

(ABC) Didja catch Carny Wilson appearing with her brats on ABC's "Supernanny"? Oh, the humanity ...of this OS, specifically.
Claude Prez - April 15, 2009 - Report this comment
I'm actually a little proud to say I did not recognize that song at all. Your putdown is well-done and well-deserved. Now please don't ever make me listen to the original again; I thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Matthias - April 15, 2009 - Report this comment
You're correct in saying that the only good thing about this song was that the lead singer was a cutie. The rest of it was fem-pop crapola... Good rip on a very deserving song.

(ABC-D) I liked it a lot. 555
Below Average Dave - April 28, 2009 - Report this comment
This whole parody was effin great, I particularly like turning the third chorus into what it had become, blah blah blah blah blah. . .the mime line was funny too. I felt it started of kinda of eh. . .but it got stronger and stronger as the song 'droned on'. . 5s
Stuart McArthur - April 28, 2009 - Report this comment
(ABC) goota feeling you don't like the OS Jack - btw the link to it didn't open, or is it just me? - and you hinted at a good point: "Famous Rock Daughters" would be a better (and cooler) name for their outfit - 555

(ABC4) Like I needed any more proof that yo are the king of parodies that make fun of the original song. But here's some proof, and great proof at that. Laughed at the 'blah, blah, blah' chorus. 555!

(ABC) I don't know...so far these entries aren't turning me on. Maybe too mean-spirited? Anyway, a couple of good laughs, especially in the last third. 5-4-4.

One of those annoying OS songs that I can't turn off for some reason when it comes on. Great job taking it back to the song
