    our new boards needs a karaoke thread, lets start it off with one of my personal favourites


    I try to discover
    A little something to make me sweeter
    Oh baby refrain from breaking my heart
    I?m so in love with you
    I?ll be forever blue
    That you give me no reason
    Why you?re making me work so hard

    That you give me no
    That you give me no
    That you give me no
    That you give me no

    Soul, I hear you calling
    Oh baby please give a little respect to me

    And if I should falter
    Would you open your arms out to me
    We can make love not war
    And live at peace in our hearts
    I?m so in love with you
    I?ll be forever blue
    What religion or reason
    Could drive a man to forsake his lover

    Don?t you tell me no
    Don?t you tell me no
    Don?t you tell me no
    Don?t you tell me no

    Soul, I hear you calling
    Oh baby please give a little respect to me

    I?m so in love with you
    I?ll be forever blue
    That you give me no reason
    You know you?re making me work so hard

    That you give me no
    That you give me no
    That you give me no
    That you give me no

    Soul, I hear you calling
    Oh baby please give a little respect to me

    Soul, I hear you calling
    Oh baby please give a little respect to me

    And now for one of my favorites...


    "The Star Wars Cantina"
    (sung to the tune of Copa Cabana)



    Her name was Leia,
    She was a princess!
    With a danish on each ear and Darth Vader drawing near...
    So R2-D2,
    found Ben Kenobi,
    He'd have to put the Death Star plans into the Rebellion's hands,
    So, Luke and Obi-Wan
    had to get to Alderan,
    So, they stopped into Mos Eisly to have a drink with Han;

    *Chorus*
    At the Star Wars,
    Star Wars Cantina!
    The wierdest creatures you've ever seen-a.
    At the Star Wars,
    Star Wars Cantina!
    Music and blasters and old Jedi Masters,
    at the Star Wars...

    His name was Solo,
    He was pilot
    with a blaster at his side and a smile twelve parsecs wide!
    There with Chewbacca,
    He was a wookie!
    They met with Luke and Obi-Wan about the Millenium Falcon,
    Docking Bay 94,
    Stormtroopers at the door..
    With a flash of Ben's lightsaber,
    now there's an arm on the floor!

    (Chorus)

    His name was Yoda,
    He was a Muppet!
    Darth Vader was so bad and by the way, he's Luke's dad!
    Luke kissed his sister,
    his hand got cut off,
    In that galaxy far far away,
    Luke has had a lousy day;
    Boba Fett was so mean,
    Jabba had bad hygine!
    Why didn't they all just relax back on Tatooine?

    (Chorus 2x)

    As per TVB's instructions, i sing JUMP!

    [face_laugh]

    I get up, and nothing gets me down.
    You got it tough. I've seen the toughest around.
    And I know, baby, just how you feel.

    You've got to roll with the punches to get to what's real
    Oh can't you see me standing here,
    I've got my back against the record machine
    I ain't the worst that you've seen.
    Oh can't you see what I mean ?
    Might as well jump. Jump !
    Might as well jump.
    Go ahead, jump. Jump !
    Go ahead, jump.
    Aaa-ohh Hey you ! How said that ?
    Baby how you been ?
    You say you don't know, you won't know
    until we begin.
    Well can't you see me standing here,
    I've got my back against the record machine
    I ain't the worst that you've seen.
    Oh can't you see what I mean ?
    Might as well jump. Jump !
    Go ahead, jump.
    Might as well jump. Jump !
    Go ahead, jump.
    (guitar solo)
    (keyboard solo)
    Might as well jump. Jump !
    Go ahead, jump.
    Get it and jump. Jump !
    Go ahead, jump

    another favourite from the road

    I was so high I did not recognize
    The fire burning in her eyes
    The chaos that controlled my mind
    Whispered goodbye and she got on a plane
    Never to return again
    But always in my heart

    This love has taken it?s toll on me
    She said goodbye too many times before
    And her heart is breaking in front of me
    I have no choice cause I won?t say goodbye anymore

    I tried my best to feed her appetite
    Keep her coming every night
    So hard to keep her satisfied
    Kept playing love like it was just a game
    Pretending to feel the same
    Then turn around and leave again

    This love has taken it?s toll on me
    She said goodbye too many times before
    And her heart is breaking in front of me
    I have no choice cause I won?t say goodbye anymore

    I?ll fix these broken things
    Repair your broken wings
    And make sure everything?s alright
    My pressure on her hips
    Sinking my fingertips
    Into every inch of you
    Cause I know that?s what you want me to do

    (sung to: The Caisson's Song aka Marine's Hymn)

    From the halls of the Imperial Hub
    To the deserts of Tatooine,
    We will fight the Empire's battles
    On Hoth and on Bespin.

    To ensure the Imperium's peace.
    We're the Emperor's Imperial stormtroopers
    And to hell with all the rest!

    Cecilia


    Chorus
    Cecilia, you?re breaking my heart,
    You?re shaking my confidence daily.
    Oh cecilia, I?m down on my knees,
    I?m begging you please to come home.

    Chorus

    Making love in the afternoon with cecilia
    Up in my bedroom,
    I got up to wash my face
    When I come back to bed,
    Someone?s taken my place.

    Chorus

    Jubilation,
    She loves me again,
    I fall on the floor and I?m laughing

    Jubilation,
    She loves me again,
    I fall on the floor and I?m laughing.

    U have no soul [face_devil]

    [face_laugh]
    Everyday I hear a different story
    People saying that you're no good for me
    saw your lover with another
    And she's making a fool of you
    Oh

    If you love me baby
    you'd deny it
    But you left me
    And tell me
    I should try it
    Tell me I'm a baby
    And I don't understand

    But to know that I'll forgive you
    Just this once, twice, forever
    'Cause baby
    You could take me to hell and back
    Just as long as we're together
    And you do

    I don't want your freedom
    I don't want to play around
    I don't want nobody baby
    Part-time love just brings me down
    I don't need your freedom
    Girl all I want right now is you

    Like a prisoner who has his own key
    But I can't escape until you love me
    I just go from day to day
    Knowing all about the other boys
    You take my hand and tell me I'm a fool
    To give you all I do
    Bet you someday
    Baby
    Someone says the same to you

    But you know that I'll forgive you
    Just this once, twice, forever
    'Cause baby
    You could take me to hell and back
    Just as long as we're together
    And you do

    Oh

    I don't want your freedom
    I don't want to play around
    I don't want nobody baby
    Part-time love just brings me down
    I don't need your freedom
    Girl all I want right now is you

    But to know that I'll forgive you
    Just this once, twice, forever
    'Cause baby
    You could take me to hell and back
    Just as long as we're together
    And you do

    I don't want your freedom
    I don't need to play around
    I don't want nobody baby
    Part-time love just brings me down

    I don't want your
    (I don't want your)
    I don't want your
    (I don't want your)
    I don't want your
    (I don't want your)
    I don't want your
    (I don't want your)
    Oh...

    When I look into your eyes
    I can see a love restrained
    But darlin' when I hold you
    Don't you know I feel the same
    'Cause nothin' lasts forever
    And we both know hearts can change
    And it's hard to hold a candle
    In the cold November rain
    We've been through this such a long long time
    Just tryin' to kill the pain
    But lovers always come and lovers always go
    An no one's really sure who's lettin' go today
    Walking away
    If we could take the time to lay it on the line
    I could rest my head
    Just knowin' that you were mine
    All mine
    So if you want to love me
    then darlin' don't refrain
    Or I'll just end up walkin'
    In the cold November rain

    Do you need some time...on your own
    Do you need some time...all alone
    Everybody needs some time...on their own
    Don't you know you need some time...all alone
    I know it's hard to keep an open heart
    When even friends seem out to harm you
    But if you could heal a broken heart
    Wouldn't time be out to charm you

    Sometimes I need some time...on my
    own Sometimes I need some time...all alone
    Everybody needs some time...on their own
    Don't you know you need some time...all alone

    And when your fears subside
    And shadows still remain, ohhh yeahhh
    I know that you can love me
    When there's no one left to blame
    So never mind the darkness
    We still can find a way
    'Cause nothin' lasts forever
    Even cold November rain


    Don't ya think that you need somebody
    Don't ya think that you need someone
    Everybody needs somebody
    You're not the only one
    You're not the only one

    :p adi, this always makes me think of the first time i came to visit you in toronto

    Lost in the high street, where the dogs run
    Roaming suburban boys
    Mother's got a hairdo to be done
    She says they're too old for toys
    Stood by the bus stop with a felt pen
    In this suburban hell
    And in the distance a police car
    To break the suburban spell

    Let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    Break the window by the town hall
    Listen, the siren screams
    There in the distance, like a roll call
    Of all the suburban dreams

    Let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    I only wanted something else to do but hang around
    I only wanted something else to do but hang around
    I only wanted something else to do but hang around
    I only wanted something else to do but hang around

    It's on the front page of the papers
    This is their hour of need
    Where's a policeman when you need one
    To blame the colour TV?

    Let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    Take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    Run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia

    OOOOOdalllllaaaaYYYy just for Yiann


    Oh the world will sing of an English King
    A thousand years from now
    And not because he passed some laws
    Or had that lofty brow
    While bonny good King Richard leads
    The great crusade he's on
    We'll all have to slave away
    For that good-for-nothin' John

    Incredible as he is inept
    Whenever the history books are kept
    They'll call him the phony king of England
    A pox on the phony king of England!

    He sits alone on a giant throne
    Pretendin' he's the king
    A little tyke who's rather like
    A puppet on a string
    And he throws an angry tantrum
    if he cannot have his way
    And then he calls for Mum while he's suckin' his thumb
    You see, he doesn't want to play

    Too late to be known as John the First
    He's sure to be known as John the worst
    A pox on that phony king of England!

    While he taxes us to pieces
    And he robs us of our bread
    King Richard's crown keeps slippin' down
    Around that pointed head
    Ah! But while there is a merry man
    in Robin's wily pack
    We'll find a way to make him pay
    And steal our money back

    The minute before he knows we're there
    Ol' Rob'll snatch his underwear
    The breezy and uneasy king of England
    The snivellin' grovellin'
    Measly weasely
    Blabberin' jabberin'
    Gibberin' jabberin'
    Blunderin' plunderin'
    Wheelin' dealin'
    Prince John, that phony king of England
    Yeah!

    Come on, guys. A little imagination here. Kick it up a notch. Let's try filking the tunes; i.e. (for those of you unfamiliar with the term) pick a favourite tune and rework it with an SW theme.

    I challenge you!

    Filking is a fine con tradition, and likely the reason karaoke ended up being so popular as a pastime. :)

    But since the challenge has been issued, I'd say karaoke of other people's parodies is fair game... so...

    Steven Cavanaugh, that genius of the SW parody sone created this work of sheer retro genius. Enjoy!

    Y.O.D.A (To the Village People's "Y.M.C.A")

    (As sung by master Yoda, on meeting Luke Skywalker).


    YOUNG MAN, I saw your ship come down. I said
    YOUNG MAN, now it's muddy and brown. I said

    YOUNG MAN, There's no need to feel fear. I am
    WONDERIN', tell me why are you here? How you
    GROWIN', from this food on the plate, I say
    *WARS* *DO* *NOT* *MAKE* *ONE* *GREAT*

    You must be here to see Y.O.D.A
    You must be here to see Y.O.D.A.
    He's 900 years old!
    He's so strong in the Force!
    Do your Jedi Diploma course!

    You must be here to see Y.O.D.A
    You must be here to see Y.O.D.A
    Come and get yourself clean!
    Come and have a good meal!
    Pretty soon now, the Force you'll feel!

    YOUNG MAN, you fell out of the sky, into
    SOMETHIN' brown that smells like a sty, and this
    TIN CAN started swimming and then, he got
    *SPAT* *OUT* *LIKE* *SOME* *THROAT* *PHLEGM*
    YOUNG MAN, Welcome to Dagobah. He is
    COMIN', master Yoda not far. I'll be
    HAVIN' this bright thing that ain't hot. It is
    *MINE* *OR* *I'LL* *HELP* *YOU* *NOT*

    You must be here to see Y.O.D.A
    You must be here to see Y.O.D.A.

    You must be here to see Y.O.D.A
    Don't just stand in the rain!
    You're all covered with mud!
    Come and sample my homemade crud!

    OLD BEN, Are you listenin' to me? I can't
    TRAIN HIM, he's so reckless you see! Like his
    OLD MAN, he's so angry but brave! Betcha
    *HE* *SCREWS* *UP* *AT* *THE* *CAVE*
    YOUNG MAN, If you start will you end, or be
    GOING, off to save all your friends? To be
    TRAINING, needs commitment and work, if you
    *WIMP* *OUT* *THEN* *YOU'RE* *A* *JERK*

    You gotta stay here with Y.O.D.A
    You gotta stay here with Y.O.D.A
