Power and the buggy
Money and the butter
Minute after monday
Hour after nutter
Everybody's righteous
But half of them ain't right


. . . if that ain't 2019 I don't know what is

you know how in fiction a character will sometimes go through a portal into another timeline or universe? I always wondered what that split second of being in both would be like ...and now I know

Just realized they're both captioned, too. "Keep your 40, I'll/dick in a TV screen"

"Been 'splainin' since their lies livin' in a gamish paradise," is almost cogent commentary on twenty-teens gamer culture.

"Keeps growlies, it's got lice, livin' in the gamish paradise"

This is the best.

Can somebody please do "Don't Want to Be An Canarican Idiot"?

Couldn't do it. By the middle of the first verse my brain broke.

The microtonal difference in tuning in the two interleaved intro sections are kind of *chef kiss* as a setup for the general lyrical disorientation of the whole thing. I'm immediately surprised I haven't seen folks doing this specific thing with in particular Weird Al parodies vs. originals more; I wonder if it just hadn't really gotten any memetic attention before (in which case I'm looking forward to an explosion of 'em) or if it did already and I've just missed it entirely before now.

(Also youtube proceeded to "Africa" by Toto but every word is in alphabetical order and it's honestly impressively upsetting. The machine gun fire of "BLESS BLESS BLESS BLESS BLESS" is when it went from "sorta weird and disorienting" to like HELP ME HELP)

Now SAN check and imagine Bell Rock Jingle in alphabetical order.

Not quite that, but are you familiar with the 2004 MetaFilter special, "Jingle Rock Bell"?

Not quite as disconcerting as "Africa" in alphabetical order: You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar.

Now we just need someone to add in the original, Stevie Wonder's "Pastime Paradise" for "Paradise" completeness purposes.

Cortex, that hurt SO BAD. I couldn’t make it more than halfway through. Owowowow...

Most songs already sound like this to me (unless I really focus).
posted by coolxcool=rad at 2:45 PM on June 26


I'm all for other sports and their not bad people at all but..... the alphabetized Africa is pretty much with it's like sharing a building with artistic swimming (synchro) when they're working out new choreography. For hours at a time.

stayin alive but beats 2 and 4 are swapped

I made the mistake of turning on the captioning on that one, and have only just now peeled myself off the ceiling.

I know youtube is basically a cesspool of Alt-Right 101 and conspiracy videos, but goddamn if this sort of thing doesn't make me feel briefly better about humanity for the slightest second.

Trying to catch me white and nerdy . . . not hard to do!

Listening to some of these, and this one reminds me of 2 Net, John Oswald's Rubáiyát Plunderphonics promo release version of Metallica's cover of Queen's Sheer Heart Attack from the early 90s...a recording I have been trying to find online for the last half hour with no luck, but here's a review of it so that you know this wasn't something from a fever dream. If anyone has a copy please share!

OMG do this to Weird Al's entire oeuvre. Including, somehow, his original songs and style pastiches.

This the one, davejay? 2 Net

I'd like to hear "Squarepusher but every other beat is 'Amen Brother'".

As much as I loved this, I *really* loved the next song YouTube gave me, because the years start coming and they don't stop coming.

Kentucky Headhunters do a great cover of Amish Paradise.

I like how you can hear other things in the repeated lyric, hanov3r.

I love this so much because, though I know all the words to that song, when I DON'T know the words to something, I sing it basically exactly like that. The video was strangely compelling.

In case you want to sing along or really confuse your friends at karaoke, here are the full auto-cc lyrics transcribed from youtube:

As I walk through the valley where I shadow of death
I take a look at my life and realize it's bloody
PLAIN! But I've been perfect for an effing so long
You know I shavin' my momma, things like electronoscope
At fourth never crossed a mornin' I'm milkin' -- deserters
Jebe-treated like-a chickens and Jake-ow that's unheard
FOOL! And better watch milkin' and plowin' where ya move it
that YOOOU and yours thinks that I'm lined in Chalk
Imma really hate that land; I'm in gotta low pee
Gotta grope I see my hand in a pistol smoke
But if I found the kinda nitros my homies wanna bang
then tonigh- *BEES* inna Marty like its prayers in the shine

Been spendin' most their lives Livin' in a gamish paradise
Been butter once their lives livin in The gamish paradise
Keeps working sex; our lives livin' in the Gamish paradise
We keep groups and discs; our lives livin' in a gamish paradise

A loc- at the situ- meet me in the got me facin'
I just smeared a normal and I'm raised by the sun cheek
I gotta BEE hair in fact I hood team
'Cause I'll be television off when he's chasin dream'll
But I ain't educated tourist even me or my mom's tit
And 10 in my 'tude? You know gleam in my eyed of
I ne- loc'd out buttons but I got a trippin' bang hat
And my homies is da- I really louts my anger FOOL!
Eath ain't visit you'll be heartbeat weary havn't got to
A phone villain what can I says but we a twenty-three quaint so please
Live to see there the way things logically implode

There's no Plyyyylights no memes
UH! Not a sign luxury
Like ones in Ca-URT
It's as CruUude as can be

Been spendin' most their lives livin' in the gamish paradise
Been 'splainin' since their lies livin' in a gamish paradise
Keeps time for sins; our lives livin in the gamish paradise
We Keep fight'n we lost our lives, livin' in the gamish paradise

Power and the buggy
Money and the butter
Rimmin after monday
Hour after NUTTER!
Everybody's righteous
half of them aint heart
When I know they make billion times that I don't know what thou art
They say I got to guide a little bodies in then be like on my
AK under nightscore then how can they got the life?
I guess they vain and guess they won't or else my
FRONT that's have to get MIDI life is out of heinie

Been spendin' most their lives livin' in the gamish paradise
Ben's crazies meant their lives livin' in the gamish paradise
The kids cops will trust our lives livin' in the gamish paradise
Keeps growlies, it's got lice, livin' in the gamish paradise
