While trying to fall asleep the other night, the song "1985" was stuck in my head, (the Bowling for Soup version, as I'm just now getting the SR-71 version as I type this) and I somehow came up with a Megatokyo version of the chorus. I lost the last few lines of it, so I had to fill those back in, as well as the rest of the song. All I remember is that instead of Erika and Kimiko, I had Junpei in the chorus. Anyway, here it is:

Freddie just hit the wall;
Plot lines, he's tried 'em all
Nobody buys it
Fan's starting a riot

Ping's kicked Ed's ass again
When will it ever end?
Dom's out of ammo
Had to try an arrow

He was gonna hook them all up
Piro with Kimiko
Largo and Erika
Hell, find someone for Miho

But plot lines are coming
Be it, ever slowly
And inspiration's struck
And now, this one, won't suck!

So bring Largo, Dom 'n' Ed
And give 'em lots 'a guns
'Cause the undead are rising
And Miho will destroy us all
Erika, Kimiko,
They'd best run and hide, oh no!
Oh yes, it's all quite wacko
It's Mega, Mega, Megatokyo!*

Megatokyo…

Junpei just kicked the ass
Of the Moeko Man!
Rent-a-Zilla's fightin' back
Against Canadian guy!

Yuki; still flirtin' strong
And Piro, he knows it's wrong
Sera's case is hopeless
Even without Asmodeus

Yanagisawa,
Megagamers.
Junko just ripped them off
She'll need to find some lawyers

And as the chapter ends
Largo needs booze
Ping needs a recharge and
Piro's
Dreaming

Not of Kimiko, but

Largo, Dom 'n' Ed
And they got lots 'a guns
'Cause the undead are rising
And Miho will destroy us all
Erika, Kimiko,
They'd best run and hide, oh no!
Oh yes, it's all quite wacko
It's Mega, Mega, Megatokyo!

They hate it
Not funny
But poor Fred's not
In it for the money

Thought it would be good
Expected a hit
But instead
This, one, SUCKS!

Next time it's

Largo, Dom 'n' Ed
And they've got lots 'a guns
'Cause the undead are rising
And Miho will destroy us all
Erika, Kimiko,
They'd best run and hide, oh no!
Oh yes, it's all quite wacko
Megatokyo!

Take Largo, Dom 'n' Ed
And give 'em lots 'a guns
'Cause the undead are rising
And Miho will destroy us all
Erika, Kimiko,
They'd best run and hide, oh no!
Oh yes, it's all quite wacko
It's Mega, Mega, Megatokyo!

*Pronounce it "Meh-Gah-To-Ki-O" to make it fit the song better.

Yeah, it's really random. I tried to include as many characters as I could remember at the time, and the opening as well as the slow part of the song are supposed to be "real-world" instead of the "comic world" so yeah... Not THAT bad since I remembered 4 of 8 lines I came up with while trying to fall asleep and built a whole song around it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

And, sorry to SR-71 and Bowling for Soup. Again, song is based off the BfS version:

Debbie just hit the wall
She never had it all
One prozac a day
Husband's a C.P.A.

Her dreams went out the door
Once she turned 24
Only been with one man
What happened to her plans

She was gonna be an actress
She was gonna be a star
She was gonna shake her ass
On the hood of Whitesnake's car

Her yellow SUV
Is now the enemy
Looks at her average life
Nothing, has been, alright

Since Bruce Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her 2 kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

1985…

She's seen all the classics
She knows every line
Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink,
Even St. Elmo's Fire

She rocked out to Wham!
Not a big Limp Bizkit fan
Thought she'd get a hand
On a member of Duran Duran

Where's the miniskirt
Made of snakeskin?
And who's the other guy
That's singin' in Van Halen?

When did reality
Become TV?
Whatever happened to
Sitcoms
Gameshows

On the radio was

Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her 2 kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

She hates time
Make it stop
When did Motley Crue
Become classic rock

And when did Ozzy
Become an actor?
Please make this
Stop, stop, STOP!

And bring back

Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her 2 kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
Cause she's still preoccupied
1985

Since Bruce Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her 2 kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985
