1989 (parody of 1999 by Prince)

Post by Billy » Wed Sep 12, 2007 2:28 am

Woah, guys, can I just say these recent ones are awesome! Really keeping up the standard, some absolutely fantastic work!

I really REALLY REALLY should not be up at this time of the morning, and I'll probably hugely oversleep tomorrow, but I remembered an idea I had absolutely ages and ages ago for a song rewrite but never got round to doing it. Well...I just have! It's a reworking of '1999' by Prince, the video is at http://www.ifilm.com/video/2786033 and the lyrics at http://www.songfacts.com/lyrics.php?findsong=1760 , although there's some discrepancies so I've only done the lines that are actually in the video. Comments appreciated, I'm kinda proud of this!

Childrens TV as I write this
Has really gone and lost its way,
But it was better in the 80s
At 4:45 on Fridays!

The sky it wasn't purple
There were minecarts flying everywhere
No one beat the dungeon's puzzles,
You know I didn't even care!

Cus they say five million happy people saw the show,
Wow, what a time!
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1989!

Childrens TV as I write this,
It died and suffered really fast,
But Knightmare's just a party
A party that always lasts!

Treguard he was with us,
Morghanna was the one to fight,
So when they had to die
She'd set their head ablaze with yel-low light!

Yeah, they say five million happy people saw the show,
Wow, what a time!
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1989!
Yeah!

Lemme tell ya something,
If you didn't watch the show then
You were missing out on so much more! Aaow!
You had a Grimwold and a Festus
And baby, they were ready to ROAR!

Yeah, you had Douglas with the bomb
You had teams die every day! Boom!
But before Cliff let that happen,
He DANCEd his life away!

They say five million happy people saw the show,
Wow, what a time!
(Teams dying all the time)
So tonight we gonna, we gonna (Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1989)!

Show it one more time!
Five million happy people saw the show,
Wow, what a time!
Yeah, yeah,
So tonight we gonna, we gonna (Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1989)!

Yeah! 1989! (1989)
What a wicked show! 1989! (1989)
What a wicked show! 1989! (1989)
Oh the teams died every day! (1989)

With the Series 3 fresh in our minds from the Challenge repeats, I wanted to remind people about this excellent song parody by Billy. Enjoy it while you can, before Taylor Swift copyrights 1989 and has it dismissed. ::)
