Parody of Fame by Irene Cara

Post by Drassil » Thu Nov 06, 2003 3:41 pm

The Buffy episode I was hinting at was 'Once More With Feeling', where a demon's curse leads to the whole episode being performed as a musical. I am not a major Buffy fan, but I thought it was excellently done (all the songs were written by Buffy creator Joss Whedon), and the episode spawned a CD album and a songbook. Highly recommended.

Anyway, here are some more lyrics. Based on Fame by Irene Cara. Official audio (extended) here.

A Dungeoneer looks into a Spyglass, and sees Lord Fear looking depressed. He says, 'Lissard, despite all the time that has passed, I don't think people are taking me seriously as a leader of the Opposition.' (A picture of Iain Duncan Smith flashes up for a split second.) 'But they really should be. Because I am a villain like no other, and I'm here to stay.' Then he sings:

'Lissard, look at me
And tell me what you see
If you smirk then you'll wake up dead
Give me time I'll make you forget Mog-dred
'Cause when it's killing time
I'm best at villain's crime
I can crush you all in my hand
Don't you know who I am?
Remember my leer
(FEAR!)
I'm gonna rule forever
I'm gonna burn, roast and fry
(FRY!)
I'm gonna darken the weather
People will see me and die
(DIE!)
Kids, if you're aged 'round eleven
Don't even try to come near
(NEAR!)
I'm gonna rule forever
Better remember my leer
(REMEMBER! REMEMBER! REMEMBER!)
(REMEMBER! REMEMBER! REMEMBER!)'

:)

OMG that was HILARIOUS! ;D

"The alarm, Master! The opposition's tracked them! Oh good grief...look - Lord Fear's frozen Christopher!"

[Much later, after the Dungeon has closed and then reopened, another dungeoneer finds the spyglass and picks it up. An older Lord Fear is pacing around his new old lair. [Cue the second verse that I omitted to parody ten years ago when making my first contribution to the 'I had a silly idea...' thread.]

Someone hold my nose, the stench of mackerel grows
Lissard's stuffed himself full of fish
Why's my viewing pool now a little dish?
But if they think I'm spent
I'll tell them my intent, yes
I can hunt a team 'til it quakes
Ooh, I got what it takes

(FEAR!)
I'm gonna rule forever
I'm gonna burn, roast and fry
(FRY!)
I'm gonna darken the weather
People will see me and die
(DIE!)
Kids, if you're aged 'round eleven
Don't even try to come near
(NEAR!)
I'm gonna rule forever
Better remember my leer
(REMEMBER! REMEMBER! REMEMBER!)
(REMEMBER! REMEMBER! REMEMBER!)
