The Lyrics

For those non-country fans in the house you may remember Josh Gracin as the Marine from American Idol season 2. He's had a few hits in the country world now including a number one. The original of this is a beautiful song if you haven't heard it. We hope we took the obvious idea and did it justice! As always, ENJOY!
Baby the theatre lights are dimming.
The tubas are all set.
I'm too tired of hearin' crap I'll never know on the radio.
I'm so glad that we took a journey this eve

Down to the SYMPHONY.
Share in the music tonight!
We can make believe
The music in the world's alright.
Come and wave your hand
At the big brass band.
And we'll have some fun
Tonight at the symphony. YEAH!

Baby they're fir'rin' up Tchaikovsky.
And Johann Bach's comin up next.
When the trumpets play, Holst and Fauré, Mussorgski and Bee...
Thoven, better than sex, it's BETTER than sex

It's the SYMPHONY.
Watch the conductor tonight.
You can just forget
Bout scandals and tabloids and fights.
Come and WAVE your hand
At the big brass band.
And all is alright
Tonight at the symphony!

Now the trombones
They look like they're sliding at me!
And it's so nice list'nin' to this Copland just immersed at the symph-O...nyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

Can you feel the love tonight?
Nothing matters nope
Not government's left or their right.
Just come WAVE your hand
At the big brass band.
The world is alright tonight at the SYMPH
I'm fully aware that symphonies are played by orchestras and not brass bands, HOWEVER I got this idea going to the Great American Brass Band Festival in KY and thought it was too good to pass up. PLUS I heard several of the bands play symphonic literature.

(SOTM) Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast...or beast...or something like that. DKTOS, but a good read.

(SOTM) Hear hear, fine sentiments indeed. You mis-paced the last line, however, it should only be twenty seven 'Y's. ;)

(SOTM) DKTOS Beautiful reading!

SOTM - I'm having a hard time letting anything on this subject top Monthy Python's "Decomposing composers", but a nice new side from you guys here nevertheless.

(SOTM) Better than sex, huh? I need to go to more symphonies. Good work here guys.
John Jenkins - September 25, 2005 - Report this comment
The "better than sex" line is definitely the attention getter, but there are several other good lines and there seems to be something humorous in the way you drop all of the composers' names.

SOTM...well, I couldn't stand Josh Gracin on the show, until the night when he was voted off. He won me over that night. Weird, I know...but now I'm a fan. I dig the OS, and this was a GREAT send up...I'm especially impressed with anyone who can fit "Mussorgski " into a parody...=)

(SOTM) A parody with harmony and class.

(SOTM) You have to have a lot of brass to do a symphony parody. 5's - September 28, 2005 - Report this comment
I agree that Beethoven is better than sex, but the sequels are even better. I just LOVE movies about big slobbery dogs!

I was all ready to curse you for making me download a country song by an American Idol also-ran, but you're right; it's not bad. And your parody contains lotsa great subs. I particulary like how the Tchaikovsky line works. Nice job.

Like Arwen, I couldn't stand this guy on the show. Then I missed the episode where they sent him packing so he never won ME over. Plus I never heard the song, and I don't go around searching for originals to download like some of these incredibly courteous people around here. But it was fun to read; I liked the way you capitalized SYMMMMMMMMPH OOOOOH NYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYyeaheeeeyeah. Hey, you know what my favorite part of the symphony is? The TYMMMMMMMMPAAAAAAAHNEEEEEEEEEEyeheeeyeah. In conclusion: well done.

(SOTM) This parody is definitely not a pain in the brass! Well done!
