This is the best thing to happen to the Jurassic Park franchise since 1997. And that includes Bill Macy.

I love made up lyrics to instrumental songs, especially theme songs. My favorite of all time is this set of lyrics to the Law and Order theme song:

You're the monkey face
You're the monkey in the tree
You're the monkey face
You're the monkey in the tree
Eating all the bananas, eating all the bananas
Eating all the bananas, eating all the bananas
[guitar solo]
You're the monkey face
You're the monkey in the tree
You're the monkey face

I sing it all the time, or I did until my wife told me that being called "the monkey face" was insulting.

This makes me so, so happy.

I think this is the best version of the Jurassic Park theme song, surely. NSFW. Also not safe due to ear worm danger.

-Camp song

Try not to hear that forever now.

As a film music nerd, I'd like to point out that the proper name of this cue is "Journey to the Island".

I think it likely Williams' greatest work - which is saying considerable.

It's okay to not sing in tune sometimes, really it is. I promise.

MeFi begs to differ.

I absolutely love Brett Domino. Not just for the earnest nerdy awkwardness he brings to his videos (which I'm nearly sure is mostly an act), and not just for Steven Peavis, the greatest keyboard drummer of our generation, but also because he suckers you into thinking that he's doing a silly little video without much substance, immediately before blowing you away with a legitimately awesome keytar solo.

Also, the Jurassic Park theme is one of the greatest pieces of music in film history, and Domino just improved on it. That's pretty awesome in itself.

I hope Jeff Goldblum is in the fourth one, too. He's cool, so he's good for my people. Jurassic Park 3 was shit. That's what happens when you don't have the J-Blu in your dinosaur movie.

And Dr. Sattler is the only Laura Dern role I can stand. She's kind of intolerable in pretty much everything else I've seen her in. But she's pretty cool in Jurassic Park, and also kind of physically attractive. Physically. She's kind of old now, though. So I don't really care either way about the shorts.

Goddamn, Jurassic Park is a rad movie. I don't know why I don't have it on DVD.

You don't think Laura Dern's role in INLAND EMPIRE was pleasant and agreeable?

Laura Dern is the antithesis of intolerable.

I love these guys. Brett Domino explaining how a stylophone works = pure gold. And the video of them on Britain's Got Talent... just fantastic.

Agreed. Also she made those David Lynch movies better.
