Parody Fail

December 20, 2010

I’m thinking there should be a least a five to ten year ban on Christians taking any secular songs and trying to ‘redeem’ them. As far as I can tell, they always fail…

Jesus from Cameo’s Word Up

Sample Lyric: Yo got a name heard around the world, and it’s not just for the Christians it’s for all the boys and girls… Come on people now tell me who’s the word? Uh, Jesus…

Holy Ladies from Beyonce’s Single Ladies

Sample lyric: Then he told me to ask if I could stay with a friend, but I’m really gonna be with him, but I said, if you want me you gotta put a ring on it…. No,o-o-o, no o-o-o, no, no.

Another Snake on the Crawl from Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall

Sample lyric: Satan, leave our thoughts alone, all in all you’re just another snake on the crawl.

    I know for a fact you have at least 3 Christian parodies that are better.

    Are you sure these filk attempts were parodies?

    Or dead serious “Just like Beyonce/Pink Floyd/Whatever, Except CHRISTIAN(TM)!” knockoffs?

    “Redeem” them?

    Why can’t they be honest and admit they’re FILKING them?
