    Yes, Congrats! It was great.

    I might attempt this next one, but song parodies are NOT my strong suit.

    <listens to the crickets in the thread> Glad someone else added some parodies of their own! ;)

    It was much harder than I expected, but I managed to combine two of my favorite things...Star Wars and Heavy Metal. Here's one of Iron Maiden's most popular tunes "Run to the Hills", modified into "Run From the Clones" for the challenge. The music is [link=http://www.imeem.com/jukeboxmusic13/music/8Wqtiws8/iron-maiden-run-to-the-hills/]HERE [/link] if anybody wants to sing along.

    White clad clones from Kamino;
    War is all they?ve ever known.
    On Geonosis, they saved our lives.
    Without their guns, we?d all have died.

    Fought clankers hard, they fought them well,
    In their space planes, they gave droids hell
    Beginning of the end turned tragedy,
    When my clone troopers turned on me.

    Climbing the cliff face on Utapau?s hills,
    Boga climbs tricky ascent,
    Most trusted general blasted me down
    Into the water I went.
    Treachery impossible, how can this be
    How could this happen, why didn?t we see?

    Run from the clones, they?ve lost their minds
    Run from the clones, or you will die

    Lightsaber blue flashes deep in the Temp?l,
    Backed by a sea of white clones;
    Destroying the Jedi one at a time,
    Left nothing behind except bones.
    Freedom?s hope dying, we?re stabbed in the back,
    Master and Youngling the cowards attack!

    Run from the clones, they?ve lost their minds.
    Run from the clones, or you will die.

    My first song parody ever, please don't kill me because it IS bad. [face_worried] Anyway, my version of John Rich's "Shuttin' Detroit Down". My title it Shootin' Jedi Down. Okay, here we go...


    Shuttin? Detroit Down - Shootin? Jedi Down


    Way too many Jedi Knights died when that day came,
    The troopers did the shootin? but Palpy was to blame.
    Yoda had somethin? to say.

    ?Now all the Jedi are dead except for me and you,
    We have lost so many and now it?s just us two.?
    Obi-Wan was feelin? blue,
    Time for refuge.

    Not one single clone trooper shed a tear,
    They tried to hide the whole event but Jedi don?t take that here.

    ?Cause in the galaxy they?re Shootin? Jedi down,
    While the sith sit all happy and Palpy wears his newfound crown.
    Vader?s huntin? down the stragglers and palpy enjoys his town,
    Yeah while their sittin? in the senate without the least bit of sound,
    Here in the galaxy they?re shootin? Jedi down.
    The clone troopers are shootin? Jedi down.

    Plo Koon?s ship got shot down that?s how he lost his life,
    Jett Lucas died protecting Bail who went back to his wife.
    Now he sits in shame,
    But he?s not the one to blame.

    Look down you?ll see Secura dead on those lands,
    Let me tell ya Ben is cryin? in the heated sand.

    ?Cause in the galaxy they?re Shootin? Jedi down,
    While the sith sit all happy and Palpy wears his newfound crown.
    Vader?s huntin? down the stragglers and palpy enjoys his new town.
    Yeah while they?re sittin? in the senate in that Coruscanti town,
    Here in the galaxy they?re shootin? Jedi down.

    Yeah while the troopers guard the new lords in that Coruscanti town,
    You can bet they are shootin? Jedi down.

    In the galaxy they?re shootin? Jedi down,
    In the galaxy they?re shootin? Jedi down.

    They?re Shootin? Jedi down!

    THE END

    With apologies to the Beach Boys and Sloop John B:

    We travelled on the ship Count D
    Some Jedi, clones and me
    Around Coruscant we did fly
    All through the night
    Clones got into a fight
    Jedi are all shot up and
    I wanna go home

    So set up the Count D's course
    (No I can't use the Force)
    Get the captain to
    Drop us all back home
    Hey you clone
    Why don't you leave me alone
    I'm no Jedi and
    I wanna go home


    One Jedi he was dead
    Shot in the head in bed
    The Force then came and took him away
    Hey you clone
    Why don't you leave me alone
    I'm no Jedi and
    I wanna go home

    The clones they won the fight
    No more Jedi in sight
    The Force came and took them all away
    Go away clone
    Why can't you leave me alone
    This is the last trip I'll ever go on

    So set up the Count D's course
    (No I can't use the Force)
    Get the captain to
    Drop us all back home
    I wanna go home, let me go home
    This is the last trip I'll ever go on

    This is a great idea. :) I've read the entries to the challenges so far, and they are awesome.

    Here's my response for the Order 66 challenge. It's a (very silly) parody of the song "Love Potion Number 9" originally by (I think) the Clovers, but covered by quite a few other bands.

    Order 66

    My name is Palpatine ? I am da man
    I am the master of a cunning plan
    To fix those Jedi's annoying tricks.
    I'm gonna call it ? Order 66.

    It's gonna truly be a dream come true
    They'll never guess that they are in the poo
    Until the moment when I flick that switch
    And murmur sweetly ? Order 66

    Then we can party to Sithly excess
    And no-one can tell us to clean up the mess
    Coz once we're all free of Yoda and Mace
    We'll have some fun, we'll rock all night, I'll paint my face

    I'll pick some babe to be my Emperor's Hand
    And everything will go as I have planned
    Isard will send me some holopics
    So we can relive ? Order 66

    [Palpy jives down the Senate hallway playing the chorus with air guitar, and then grabs at a pretend mic to deliver the final line of the chorus.]

    We'll have some fun, we'll rock all night, I'll paint my face

    I'll be the head of a new dynasty
    The J. R. Ewing of the galaxy
    I'll get to go out with all the hot chicks
    All because of ? Order 66
    Order 66
    Order 66
    Order . . . 66
    ;)

    Way to go, GuNgAn! :D

    I doubt I'll make this challenge...mostly cuz I don't know Ric, but also because my computer's down. >< Good luck everybody, I'll check in on the entries when I can. :)
