Setting new lyrics to old tunes is a tradition with a long and noble history, and not always done for comic effect -- but since comic effect is what this week's theme is all about, that's what we've got today.
First off: A double-header! To the tune of The Nails's 88 Lines About 44 Women, we have The Great Luke Ski's 88 Lines About 44 Simpsons and The Brunching Shuttlecocks' 88 Lines About 42 Presidents.
From the Not Work-Safe file, Jordan Mann crosses Disney's Beauty and the Beast with Quills to bring us Be Undressed.
More geeky goodness! The Great Luke Ski parodies Afroman's "Because I Got High" as Because I'm Jedi, and Eminem's "Cleaning Out My Closet" as Stealing Like A Hobbit; and Tom Smith does something a little different from the usual Christmas parodies with The Twelve Days of Star Wars.
This is just too good to pass up. Sesame Street's Furry Happy Monsters, brought to you by the letters R, E, and M.
Voltaire shreds The Wizard of Oz into itty bitty bits with If I Only Were A Goth.
The Great Luke Ski combines two time-honored traditions of shouting back at the movie screen with The Mystery Science Theatre Picture Show.
Da Vinci's Notebook parodies not a specific song but a signature style, with a song that isn't by Meat Loaf but might have been: Three Little Words.
And a group calling itself Hayseed Dixie does some hilarious (and startlingly good) bluegrass covers of Centerfold, Fat-Bottomed Girls, Highway to Hell, and Back In Black.
