The whole point for me IS to rely on the original lyrics as much as possible. I would love to be able to change only one word in a song and make it relevent. Otherwise, I could just post a song in Japanese and make up my own words, but what's the point? :lol:

However, I believe my knowledge of music is greater than yours 8) (check out the "bands you have seen" thread), so of the songs I've posted so far, I knew most (if not all) of the lyrics before, so that helped me decide which song to pick.

Here's a very scary example of what I'd like to achieve. By changing only four words of this song, the whole meaning is completely reversed. The song was originally pro-Atheism, it is now 100% pro-Christian. (If I've posted this before, apologies)

Imagine - John Lennon

Imagine there's a Heaven
It's easy if you try
A hell below us
Above us blue sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And one religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Here's a quickie for Sjoerd (the murdering b*st*rd) :lol:

These must rank as the silliest words ever, of any song, in the history of the world! :lol:

Jerusalem - By some stupid dead guy!

And did those feet in ancient time,
Walk upon England's mountains green? (Nope!) :lol:
And was the holy lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen? (Pretty sure he wasn't!) :lol:

And did the Countenance Divine,
Shine forth upon our clouded hills? (Don't remember reading that anywhere!) :lol:
And was Jerusalem builded here (Shouldn't that be "built"?)
Among these dark Satanic Mills? (Jerusalem's in Israel. There is nowhere in England called Jerusalem!) :lol:

Bring me my bow of burning gold! (Ouch! It's bloody hot!) :lol:
Bring me my arrows of desire! (Ow, I've been shot! Um..I fancy a kebab!) :lol:
Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold! (How are you going to shoot an arrow if you're holding a spear?) :lol:
Bring me my Chariot of Fire! (Good name for a movie!) :lol:

I Will not cease from mental fight;(Ah! A sudoku addict!) :lol:
Nor shall young Sjoerd sleep while writing his essay about admitting Serbia into the EC :lol:
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land (How are you going to get planning permission? Excuse me, I'd like to build a holy city with a Wailing Wall, Mosques, falafel sellers and Jesus' alledged tomb then fill it with a lot of people who don't like each other and who will continually try to kill each other) :lol:

Imagine - yes you have mentioned it before one or two times pooh but I would say it's about more than belief systems in that context - which can include not believing when taken to passionate extremes... :x

Knowing your contemporary musical onions - yes you probably do know a lot more songs and seen more bands than I have 'cos I more or less 'grew out' of songs around the time hip hop got popular (although I can listen to some of it and can even say, hand on heart, that I like Eminem - although that's prolly more to do with the mask and my chainsaw fetish...) :P TBH part of my 'condition' means I much prefer silence now or something classical/instrumental to fill it up when I do need to listen to something.

As for not tinkering too much with the words - yeah right :twisted: That's called being a DJ isn't it? (or is that MCing these days? :lol: ). I'm just old-fashioned I guess and think it's more of thoughtful to put the time in and really make it all about the person 8)

And now I really have to sod off and do some cooking/cleaning for a change :roll:

.....and another thing about the song "Jerusalem", the line I changed was;

"Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand"

So this dude has got a golden bow slung over one shoulder (which must be pretty heavy), I assume his arrows of desire are in a quiver over his other shoulder, he's got a spear in one hand, and a sword in the other. :shock:

So how's he meant to ride his chariot then? How's he meant to hold the reins? In his teeth? :? And just to make it even more difficult for the poor sod, the chariot's on fire! :shock:

Nice tune, but the words are complete and utter pants!

I don't understand why he needs weapons if he wants to build Jerusalem he needs bricks and mortar and builders instead of weapons and a builders van instead of a chariot :lol:
