Medira's Piratey Song Parody Contest! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I am pleased to announce the first ever Piratey Song Parody Contest!

During my time here, I've noticed that we have a lot of talented people on the Midnight Ocean. Now, we've had sea shanties and limericks, poetry and prose, but as far as I know, there hasn't been a contest to reflect the lyrical talent (and normally the sense of humor) that I find in a well-written song parody!

THE RULES:

1. The song can be any genre, but the original song title and artist must be referenced at the beginning or the end of the post. It helps to know what we're comparing the song to, in case we aren't familiar with it.

2. You may enter more than one song.

3. Since this is for the Puzzle Pirates community, all parodies must be pirate-themed.

4. Post your entries in this thread. Once the deadline for submissions pass, we will be asking for votes from the YPP community.

5. There will be one round of elimination before the final judging. Once all submissions have been received, I will be asking people to e-mail me at songparody@burntnotes.com to tell me their three favorite parodies. Once those results have been tallied, the top 15 will move to the final round.

6. The final round will be judged by me and four songwriters with a great sense of humor. They are all relatively well-known in the Canadian music industry and none of them are Y!PP players.

7. Winners will be posted in this thread once the final decision has been made.

8. Try to keep it clean mates. We will look more favorably on songs that can be "heard" by the general public without requiring censoring.

9. All entries must be submitted by Monday August 2, 2004 at midnight EST.

10. After the last entries have been received, I will be accepting votes from you, the readers, listing your top 3 picks. I will accept these votes until Thursday August 12, 2004 at midnight EST. I will announce the finalists as soon as possible after that vote tally, and the judges and I will deliberate over the winners after that.


I ran this contest as an event for my wedding and I will be using a few of the entries from that contest as my examples. (I ran out of time to write my own *shakes a fist at RL)

SAMPLE ENTRY:

"Holding out for a Left Turn" (to the tune of "Holding out for a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler - part of the Footloose movie soundtrack) performed by Druidbob

Druidbob asks for the lights to be dimmed, sits on a stool and starts in a soft, slow and hopeful voice?

Where have all the good sailors gone
And where is all the shot?
Where's the nav-wise Druidbob
To fight imperial odds?
Isn't there a Imperio mate upon a sailing brig??
Late in battle I shoot and I scream and I dream of what I need

Druidbob sweeps a hand across the stage. Lights flash on; fireworks explode; the music gets loud.

I need a left-turn!
I'm holding out for a left turn 'til the end of the fight!
The ship?s gotta be green
And it?s gotta come fast
And it?s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a left-turn!
I'm holding out for a left-turn 'til the sword fight
The move has gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And I?ve gotta have full guns!

Somewhere after leaving port
In my wildest fantasy, Somewhere just beyond my docks
There's someone pvp?ing me
Racing on a full sloop and sailing with the flow
It's gonna take a disconnection to sink me off *my* fleet!

I need a left-turn!
I'm holding out for a left turn 'til the end of the fight!
The ship?s gotta be green
And it?s gotta come fast
And it?s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a left-turn!
I'm holding out for a left-turn 'til the sword fight
The move has gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And I?ve gotta have full guns!

I need a left-turn!
I'm holding out for a left turn 'til the end of the fight!?

Up where the Emerald leagues meet the Ruby map above
Out where the arches split the sea
I could swear there is someone somewhere
/vwho?ing me
Through the whirl and the rubble and the turns
And the distance and the flow
I can shoot at his ship
Four tokens in a row!

I need a left-turn!
I'm holding out for a left turn 'til the end of the fight!
The ship?s gotta be green
And it?s gotta come fast
And it?s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a left-turn!
I'm holding out for a left-turn 'til the sword fight
The move has gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And I?ve gotta have full guns!

I need a left-turn!
I'm holding out for a left turn 'til the end of the fight!

PRIZES:

Grand Prize:
A Grand Frig, graciously supplied by Nemo

Judge's Choice Awards:
Each judge (excluding me) will be able to award a War Brig to their personal favourite. These ships were also graciously donated by Nemo.

Genre-Specific Awards:
There will be a sloop awarded to the best entry in each of the following genres: Rock, Pop, Country, Punk, Big Band/Swing, Jazz, Musical (Theatrical Soundtracks) and Folk

I'm hoping to be able to raise enough poe for some decent prizes for those in the top 15 and, depending on what RL allows for, maybe even a little bit of something for every entry. Donations are more than welcome.

Any questions, comments or anything, you can get in touch with me here, via PM or through the Imperio forums.

So, let's get those creative juices flowing! I can't wait to see the entries!

I know, I tried, but the familiar events are booked for now and I had to work around the judge's schedules. If it goes over well though, I may get the chance to run it again down the road for a familiar. *fingers crossed*

A songbird for the song parody. :-)

So this is where a music degree gets me, eh? Well, so be it I guess.

Might I add that my planned submissions include songs by both Styx and Flock of Seagulls? Oh yes. Bow before the coolitude.

Short Sword, Long Jacket

She wants a guy who has mem'd more than Diamond
A guy who knows just who to hire
She wants a guy with a name that's yellow
And eyes that burn like cannon fire

She wants a guy who won't booch navigation
Who's good at puzzles and fierce in attack
He's clearing the bilge
He's filling the sails
Diplomatically coaching
The greenies that slack
She wants a guy with a short sword and a long
...jacket.

She wants a guy who logs on early
She wants a guy who stays up late
She wants a guy with uninterrupted "Incredibles"
Who uses a cutlass to negotiate

With dialogue in coherent English
And a voice that is smooth like finest rum
He's good at the puzzles, and fierce in attack
Diplomatically coaching the greenies that slack
She wants a guy with a short sword and a loooooooong
...jacket

She wants a guy with a line on a Kraken
She wants a guy in an arch "ten best"
Down at the docks they will meet accidently
They'll start to chat over trade requests

He wants a ship with the
really big cannons
He wants a ship that can take 'em on
He's moving his home
From Alpha to Jorvik
He's trading his cutter for a new, massive war brig
She wants a guy with a short sword and a loooooooong,
long, long jacket!

In that case, I have some new and different ideas which I'll work on, but I kind of liked this song I did for the song parody thread and so I'd like to enter it too, if that's okay.

Sail That War Brig Out To The Blockade

As you float towards Papaya
With the bilge meter filling up
It is sad but true you will romanticize
About the game you've known before
But it was not not not so great
Yes it was not not not so great
We had hate and tarting before blockades
All the way back to Azure.
Cap'n's on the crew chat, talking about where that brig should be
She says to step on it, the next round is in 20,
and we're 2-1 behind.
You need a win-win-winning round,
you need a win-win-winning round,
And as you draw closer, all you hear her say is

Sail that war brig out to the blockade,
sail that war brig out to the blockade,
sail that war brig out,
sail that war brig out,
sail that war brig out to the blockade.

After you arrive, you note an unfortunate
blockade consequence:
Gotta build more ships, replace the ones we sank.
But our wood's blockaded in.
There's a merch-merch-merchant brig,
Chock full to the brim with wood,
And although you get a sense of deja vu,
You know what you have to do.

Sail the merch brig back through the blockade,
sail the merch brig back through the blockade,
sail the merch brig through,
sail the merch brig through,
sail the merch brig straight through the blockade.

(Memo to myself: should I ever manage my own shop,
Hire traders.)

BLAM! Guess you should have known,
this really could have waited for three hours.
As you console yourself, more wood can be bought,
But that eyepatch is forever.
The merch-merch-merchant brig
Is now quite bust-bust-busted up.
Hello, Papaya Reef.

Straight to the ocean floor in the blockade,
To the ocean floor in the blockade,
Brig went glub glub glub,
brig went glub glub glub,
to the ocean floor in the blockade.

-to the tune of Put Your Hand Inside the Puppet Head, by They Might Be Giants

In that case, I bring you "In Da Inn" By Fiddy Ajani.

Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go Ajjie
It's your birthday
We gon' party like it's yo birthday
We gon' chug Bacardi(that's rum) like it's yo birthday

When I pull out up front da Inn, you see the Sloop on dubs
In the Inn Ajani be gettin drunk
Swordfightin', carousin,
gettin them wenches an' bringin them home
Makin' 'em walk the plank and get the dunk

[Expletive expletive expletive]
Forgive me, I'm tryin to keep up with Fiddy here.
Fiddy ain't no Ajjie
9 bullets my booty
Block a scimitar an' then ye'll have me respect!

Don't mess wid Ajjie
Cause if ye do
He'll load one up
And put a 6-pounder into you

When I drink I'm known to stagger
But if ye talk me bad I'll swaggar!
Don't get me wrong I'm not a bragger
But when ye fight me, watch out for me skull dagger



o.o

Hey it worked for my birthday chanties.

At the risk of relaunching the every-growing Pirate Disco thread with more Talking Heads:


Psychic Brigands

I can't seem to bring cannons to bear
I'm taking damage, everywhere
I can't flee 'cause I just got shot
By opponents that know what I've got

Chorus:
Psychic brigands
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
Ju ju ju ju ju ju ju ju just just wanna
Run run run run run run away

Run run awaaaaay, aie yie yie yie yie yie...

You start a forage run and you can't even finish it
You're loading up shot, but you're not hittin' anything.
When I have nothing on board, my seas are clear
Try shipping gems, warp brigands again

Chorus (2x)

Il n'y a aucune livraison:
J'ai perdu ma cargaison!
Comp?tence de tout l'escrime
Est assurance maritime, oh yeah...

We are carping, we are bilging
I hate brigands when it's me they're pillaging

Chorus (2x)

Yeah, I was going to say... maybe I should just enter "Ye Can't Booch This" and the 10 other songs I've written in that thread and be done with it.

Although, hmm, Musical, you say? How familiar with Stephen Sondheim are you, and are you willing to accept a 17k entry that's the entire 10-minute prologue song from Into the Woods?

(posting URL because you *can't* actually post the song itself in the thread.)

I won't. Sorry. Though I will take the opportunity to revisit some of the lyrics and improve. Then I'll come up with some new ones, 'cause that was always my favorite thread, and there are so many songs.

[size=16]Wannabe
[size=9]Spice Girls: Wannabe

Chorus:
Yar!!! I'll tell you what I booch ,what I really really booch!
Aye, tell me what you booch,what you really really booch,
I'll tell you what I booch,what I really really booch
Aye, tell me what you booch,what you really really booch,
I wanna,I wanna,I wanna,I wanna,I wanna really
really really wanna kraken's blood, harrrr!

If you want to be in my crew, gotta join with my flag,
If you wanna booch with me, better carp it fast,
Now don't go wasting all my precious POE,
Get your crew together we pillage just fine.

(chorus)

Other Chorus:
If you wanna be my boocher, you gotta get with my flag,
Booch may last forever, flagship never ends,
If you want to be my boocher, you have got to bilge,
Sailing is so easy, but that's the way it is.

What do you think about that now you know how I feel,
Say you could puzzle my sloop, are you for real?
I won't be nav'ing, I'll give you a try,
If you really booch me then I'll say goodbye.

(chorus)

(other chorus)

So here's a puzzle from A to Z, you wanna booch with me
you gotta type carefully,
We got OM's in the palace who likes it in your face,
we got M like MMOP who likes it on an
Easy RPG, it doesn't come for free, she's a real wench,
and as for me you'll see,
Slam your league point down and turn it all round.

(other chorus)

If you wanna be my boocher,you gotta,you gotta,you gotta,
you gotta, you gotta, donkey, bingo, vegas, vegas vegas vegas,
Slam your league point down and turn it all round.
Slam your league point down and turn it all round.
Slam your league point down and turn it all round.
Slam your league point kraken's blood har!
If you wanna be my boocher!

[size=9]The Buggles: Video Killed the Radio Star

I heard your chanty back in 1692.
Sea sickness and the swill had us drawling out of tune...
Though I was a greenie, it didn't stop it coming through!
Aye, Aye

They gave the shops for the second auctioning
Rewritten by the Crow's Nest with some new technology
And now we understand the problems, you can sing
Aye, Aye

I met your monarch

Aye, Aye

What did you /tell him?

The Bazaar killed the Shop Owner's funds!
The Bazaar killed the Shop Owner's funds!

Stalls were installed and broke your hold
Aye, Aye

And now we camp at a foraged-out atoll
We sing the chanties of so long ago
And you remember the rushing flow of POE
Aye, Aye

You had the first shop!
Aye, Aye

You won the last shop!

The Bazaar killed the Shop Owner's funds!
The Bazaar killed the Shop Owner's funds!

In my stats and in my sloop
We can't turn about, we're outta the loop

The Bazaar killed the Shop Owner's funds!
The Bazaar killed the Shop Owner's funds!

and on and on... fade out....

[size=18]Plank the Boochie
[size=9]Musical Youth: Pass the Douchie

This gaming notion!
Rules the ocean!
With version!

Puzzles happen to be the food of brain
Games to really make you up and sail!

Chorus
I say, Plank the Boochie on the Port hand side!
I say, Plank the Boochie on the Port hand side!
If ya gonna sail, give me puzzle, make me nav and gun
It a go league; give me the puzzle, make me bilge for fun!

It was a cool and lovely breezy Pirate day
(How does it feel when you've got no POE?)
You could feel it on the beaches of Islay
(How does it feel when you've got no POE?)
So I left my sloop and went out to the docks
(How does it feel when you've got no POE?)
As I pass the greenie's circ I heard them say:
(How does it feel when you've got no POE?)

Chorus

So I joined the chat to see what was going on
(How does it feel when you've got no POE?)
'Cause the spirit of Jack, you know he leads you on
(How does it feel when you've got no POE?)
There was a ringer of Dread and the swords were full in swing
(How does it feel when you've got no POE?)
You could feel the breakers as I seen and heard them sing:
(How does it feel when you've got no POE?)

Chorus

'cause me say listen to the monarch, a me say listen to the captain
Give me brigand battles make me wind up me sword
Me say listen to the monarch, a me say listen to the captain
Give me brigand battles make me wind up me sword, I say

Chorus

You play it in your homes, a so me say, we a go play it in our offices
A so me know you a go play it at the caf?
A so me say we a go review it on the Tech TV

Plank the Boochie on the Port hand side
Plank the Boochie on the Port hand side
If ya gonna sail, give me puzzle, make me nav and gun
It a go league; give me the puzzle, make me bilge for fun!

I say Port, say Starboard, say Bow and Stern (on the Port hand side)
This is gonna make us /shout and subsribe (on the Port hand side)

[size=18]Here Comes the Bilge Again
[size=9]Eurythmics: Here Comes the Rain Again

Here comes the bilge again,
Filling up my sloop like a distillery
Filling up my sloop like a new subscriber
I want to sail in the open wind
I want to gun like Pirates do
I want to mem the whole ocean
Is it bilging for you?

So greenie, bilge for me!
Like swabbies do...
Carp for me
Like swabbies do...
Bilge for me
Like swabbies do...

Here comes the bilge again,
Filling up my sloop like it's gonna sink
Slowing up regen of all sailing tokens
Arrrrrrr!
I want to sail in the open wind
I want to gun like Pirates do
I want to mem the whole ocean
Is it bilging for you?

[size=18]Everybody Wants to Rule Midnight
[size=9]Tears for Fears: Everybody Wants to Rule the World

Welcome to your flag!
There's no stabbing backs...
While you PvP
We will find you
Fighting on your best behavior
Use your /plank on booching sailors
Everybody Wants to Rule Midnight

It's my own Island
It's my own Palace
Help me Colonize
Help me make the most
Of drinking and of tourneys
This monarchy will last the journey!
Everybody Wants to Rule Midnight

There's a Shop where the crew won't find you!
Paying rent while blockades comes crashing through
When they do I'll sail right behind you
So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to take it
Everybody Wants to Rule Midnight

I can't stand this inn-decision
Tournament with a lack of winnings
Everybody Wants to Rule Midnight

Say that you'll never never never blockade it
One war chest, so why belay it?
Everybody Wants to Rule Midnight

All for drinking and for tourneys
I hope the rum will last the journey
Everybody Wants to Rule Midnight

[size=18]Beaches
[size=9]Presidents of the United States of America: Peaches

Sailin' to the Corals, gonna forage lots of beaches
I'm sailin' to the Corals I'm gonna forage me lots of beaches
I'm sailin' to the Corals, I'm gonna forage lots of beaches
Sailing to the Corals, I'm gonna forage lots of beaches

Beaches come from the ocean, put there by a Ringer
In San Fransisco, maybe even downtown.
If I had my little way I'd forage beaches everyday
Sun soakin' sailors in the shade

Sailin' to the Corals I'm gonna forage lots of beaches
Sailin' to the Corals I'm gonna forage lots of beaches
I'm sailin' to the Corals gonna forage lots of beaches
Sailin' to the Corals gonna forage lots of beaches

I took a little nap by the napping donkey driftwood
Squished a rotten swabby hangin in the hood
And dreamed about lost noses
I poked my finger down in the hold makin' a little room for a rat to hide
Because my goods don't decay yet inside!

Millions of beaches, beaches for me!
Millions of beaches, beaches for free!
Millions of beaches, beaches for me!
Millions of beaches, beaches for free!

Look out!

[size=18]Butt Kraken
[size=9]Presidents of the United States of America: Boll Weavel

Let me tell you 'bout this flag of mine
It's named Butt Kraken check it out!
Spend all day on my big butt
And I rarely ever get out to fight
But when I do I bring the sunshine
And I just spread it all over Midnight!

I'm stuck on my small sloop, like a big shell
But I post on the forums, and then I'm alright
I'm not an herb lord, I don't run an herb store
Kraken's a fly flag, we're never uptight
And so I wonder...

Butt Kraken why don't you set sail from the docks?
I said I'm comfortable here I don't wanna bilge I don't wanna carp!
I said Butt Kraken get right out on your sloop!!

Good Bye, I gotta sail, no, I'll sail some other day, bye bye gotta write
And let the forums shine, let the forums shine
Let the forums shine, let the forums shine!

Now I would tell you about Butt Kraken, but that flag is too scary
He's sailing there all alone, I try to coax him out of his chalcocite prize
But he would not play a puzzle, and I tried

To make him see the fun is sailing in Midnight!
Make him see the fun is sailing in Midnight!
Make him see the fun is sailing in Midnight!
Make him see the fun is sailing in Midnight!

Butt Kraken get back out on your sloop!
Butt Kraken get back out on your sloop!

[size=9]They Might Be Giants: Istanbul

Shuranthae was once ol' Yoda
Now it's Shuranthae, no longer ol' Yoda
Been a long time gone, fabulous ol' Yoda
Now he's Midnight delight, on an ocean islet

If you ever SF'ed with deadly ol' Yoda
Now it's Shuranthae, and a dead ol' Yoda
So you gave a /tell to fancy ol' Yoda
You'll be answered by Shuranthae

Even old Midnight, was once Azure beta
Why they changed it, I can say
Developer's like it better gettin paid!!!

So, take me back to PvP Yoda
No, you can't go back to PvP Yoda
Been a long time gone, fabulous ol' Yoda
Why did fancy ol' Yoda get the works?
So Shuranthae could directly challenge jerks!

Shuranthae,
Shuranthae!!!

[size=18]Rumhouse in your Hold
[size=9]They Might Be Giants: Birdhouse in Your Soul

I'm your only drink
I'm not your only drink
But I'm a little better drink
But really I'm not actually your drink
But I am

Clearest rum in the storage by the poop deck
Who sails along with you!
Keep a little rumhouse in your hold
Not to put too fine a pint on it
Say I'm the only shot in your goblet
Keep a little rumhouse in your hold

I have a secret to tell
From my distillery swell
It's a simple message and I'm leaving out the bilging and sails
So the sloop must listen to me
And carpentry most vigilantly
My type is clear fine distilled rum, spelled Crystal^10
My kegs are infinite deep
Like the Starbucks cappacino machines, it doesn't end!

There's some grog that's opposite me
That's my primitive ancestry
Which sailed on rotten sloops and caused a lot of shipwrecks here,
Though I respect that a lot
I'd be fired if that were my fault
After killing Gesualdo off with countless screaming Aeronauts!
Clear Rum of drunkenness,
Like able swabbies it's alway near

(and while you're at it,
Do the distillery puzzle
To fill the rumhouse in your hold)

[size=18]Planksta's Paradise
[size=9]Coolio: Gangsta's Paradise

As we sail through the league point of Rhinocerous Ridge
I take a look at my skills
And realize I'm ultimate
'Cause I've been playin' and puzzlin' so long that,
Even my Captain thinks that my mind is gone
But I ain't PvP'ed a crew that didn't deserve it
He'd be treated like a greenie, not that that's unheard of
You betta talk like a pirate
And walk with sea legs
Or you and your maties might be lockered with Davy

I really love this fight but I gotta break it
As they "Arrrrr", I see myself in the sword drop, tart
I'm the Pirate King that little sailor's wanna be like
Navigating all the night
Singing chanties by the Star's light

Been sailing most our lives
Crewing in a Planksta's paradise (x2)

Keep sailing most our lives
Crewing in a Planksta's paradise (x2)

I got the navigation, the rocks they facing
I can fight a battle like I was raised by the Sparrow
So I gotta be down with the bilge and the carp
Too much tellurium trading, it's got me chasing the brigs
I'm in "Educated Flounder" with my POE in the hold
Got my Stilletto in my hand and a patch on my eye
In my blacked-out clothing, and my yellow/purple frig
And those greenies are down so it's just me and the brigs, tart
death ain't nothing but a sword drop away
I'm living life POE or die, what can I say?
I've sailed twenty-three leagues, stay awake for twenty-four?
The way things is going I don't know.

Tell me why are we so quick to plank
When the greenies we plank are you and me?

Been sailing most our lives
Crewing in a Planksta's paradise(x2)

Keep sailing most our lives
Crewing in a Planksta's paradise(x2)

Power and the POE, POE and the power
Island after Island, hour after hour
Everybody's sailing, but half of them ain't fighting
What's going on in the tourney?
But I don't know the prize.
They say I gotta puzzle
But nobody's here to bilge pump
If they just laze about, who will fill cannons?
I guess they can't
I guess they won't, I guess they sink
That's why I know I have to plank you, tart!

Been sailing most our lives
Crewing in a Planksta's paradise(x2)

Keep sailing most our lives
Crewing in a Planksta's paradise(x2)

Tell me why are we so quick to plank
When the greenies we plank are you and me?

[size=18]Puzzlicity II
[size=9]The Police: Synchronicity II

Another Midnight Pirate morning
Captain screaming at the crew

We have to /shout above the din of our sword sprinkles
We can't team any brig at all
First mate chants her litany of booching navigation
But we know all her puzzling is cake,

Our swordsman only stares out from the crow's nest
There's only one more loss that he can take
Many leagues away Skellies crawl from the slime at the
Bottom of a dark Uxmal lake

Another piratical ugly blockade
Their War Brig belches lead into our side
He sinks unsundered through the flag lines taken away,
He doesn't think to carpentry
The contenders /taunt and /tell like dock tarts in an Alpha Inn,
But all he ever puzzles with is sails,
And every single flag chat with his so-called royalty
Is a humiliating kick in the alliance
Many leagues away Skellies crawls to the surface of a dark Uxmal lake

Another trading run has ended
Only one red route league to sail
Swords and sprinkles fall like shiny metal boxes
These Ultimates are like a suicidal chase
Captain grips his sword and stares alone against the brigands
He knows that sometime somewhere he'll get a breaker
He sees his crew's home island, looming in the lighthouse
The market prices makes his eyeballs ache
Many leagues away there's a Skellie with a treasure chest on the
Shore of a dark Uxmal lake

Many leagues away...
Many leagues away...

[size=18]Sea Lords
[size=9]Men At Work: Overkill

I can't find my sloop
I think she got sunk in a blockade
No ship records left to snoop
Maybe I'll need some O.M. aid.
Especially in Midnight
I worry over all my ship's stations
I know they'll be alright
Perhaps it's just not ultimate rankings
League after League the brigands appear
Fight after fight my bilge pump, fills with sea
Crabs appear and skit away
Alone between the sails
Only brings one combination
It's time to make the trades
And buy up all of the diamond gems
At least there's lots of POE
And though we haven't yet seen doubloons
It nullifies the flight
From brigand Sea Lords
League after League the brigands appear
Fight after fight my bilge pump, fills with sea
Greenies apply and learn to play
Come Subscribe today!
