The Lyrics

WOW! I had the only posted song on amiright yesterday (2/2/11). The reactions were better than than the song. Matthias reminded me that, if this was the best song of the day, it was also the worst. TJC wanted to know how much I paid Chucky to have a Showcase Day. Me? I got a song out of it! In this parody, TOS goes back almost one hundred years. I use the version by big band leader/vocalist Eddy Howard, but it's been recorded by everbody from Barbra Streisand and Doris Day to Rudy Vallee and (in 1990 for the soundtrack of his movie Satan Takes A Holiday) Anton LeVay - high priest of the Church of Satan! Fellow amiwriters...don't leave me hanging like this again! ;D



If I had the only song on this site,
(It happened just yesterday!)
It would be the funniest that you would see
And I'd have more daily posts than J.A.B.!
I'd have the best song here on amiright
(And also the worst - O.K.!)
Is it such - an honor? Well that depends.
I would miss - the writings of all my friends.
I've now had the only song on this site.
I welcome you back today!



Good thing it was me. The one bomber didn't have to take a day off! ;D

Suave n' snappy response to a puns-in-a-blue-moon occurrence! Though we have no idea who the UnoBomber/Troll is, at least we've unmasked the UniPoster!

I noticed the mention OMR, thanks. And now I devolve into gratuitous self-promotion. Back when I had energy, I got a challenge: to write 100 parodies over a weekend. Nearly killed me, but I did it. Posting them alone took a couple of hours. Anyway, on 10/22/05, I was solely represented.

I've been using this site for about 3 years now, and that's the first time I've seen a lone entry. LOL at the bomber gag.

This parody is sh!t. All 1s.
Seriously, great job, OMR, and I bet plagiarists, the banned using proxies or public computers, and submitters of incomplete parodies were the reason you got the new entries all to yourself yesterday.

As I've mentioned before, sorry to miss your one man show yesterday and sole submitter. And as Samurai mentioned, it's a record. And I still enjoyed this last parody you wrote on Egyptians as well when I commented earlier. You sure gave it your all, Ribber! If I can only give you 5's....well, I just did anyways!

re: John Barry: After doing the triple smoosh late last year, and then a sextuple, and then an octuple, I had the idea to do 26 at once, one for each letter of the alphabet (girl's names), Started on it. Asked ChuckyG whether I could have one (mid-week) day, not just for myself, but because not fair to other posters, and he said that could probably be arranged. But the response to the multiple smooshes hasn't been that good, so the idea was dropped. Even eight was probably too many songs from one writer in one day to suit many readers, so the hint was taken.
