The Lyrics

It is always nice to meet people who are more insane than you are.
Sitting in the plane, last load 'fore sunset
Waiting for the red light turn green
Reached about four thousand meters - we'll get
jumping in the evening sun's sheen

Livining at the drop zone all through this weekend
the folks at drop zone they are quite insane
Life at the drop zone with all of these madmen
Going to live at drop zone
Going to live at drop zone tonight
Live at drop zone
I'm at home at drop zone
I dwell at drop zone -

Looking for a surge of epinephrine
Looking for the stunts in the sky -
These are people you may find quite insane
but it makes me feel alright

Livining at the drop zone all through this weekend
the folks at drop zone they are quite insane
Life at the drop zone with all of these madmen
Going to live at drop zone
Going to live at drop zone tonight
Live at drop zone
I'm at home at drop zone
I dwell at drop zone -

Total lack of creativity and imagination. Well deserved 1s. And before the Finnish witch can brag about living her dreams, she should try base jumping or parkour!

I too am sick of this braggart. In my life, I have been a cheerleader, gymnast, acrobat, horseback rider, diver, and roller derby doll. Susanna's sky diving is boring by comparison. My shelves are stocked with trophies. I bet this woman is an unfeminine beast. Drop the parachute and learn to apply makeup, get yourself waxed, and buy some designer apparel. Eat organic and work with what God gave you. Stop trying to be a man!

So jumping out of a plane makes you a man? I think it makes you a parachutist. What does human gender have to do with gravity? Is roller derby a feminine activity? Must be, because women do it. Same for all the other activities of physical skill and gracefulness that Laura has engaged it. Write a song about your adventures, in Finnish, and post it here.
Alexa - October 26, 2015 - Report this comment
Sorry to disagree Pat, but Susanna's marine and parachutist hobbies substituting for real parodies make it look like she wants to be a sailor and paratrooper. That's not feminine compared to Laura. Neo- feminists believe a woman has a right to choose a traditional role as well as a progressive role in society. Challenging Laura to do a parody is fine, but Susanna's work here is not one. It's not even funny. So you might want to challenge Susanna to get back to writing parodies herself. As for a second language, that is no longer impressive either. I speak four: English, Spanish, French, and Italian. And AFAIK, this site is open to everyone for viewing and posting, even rating!

I'm Impressed - October 26, 2015 - Report this comment
I'm sorry, since when did spinning over 500 song parodies in a second language NO LONGER qualify as impressive. I'm guessing that this is the biggest song parody site in the English speaking world, and if that's the case, then Susanna and Peter Anderson Kichyd are the only two people in the world to have done this. No matter your personal opinion of this woman, THAT's IMPRESSIVE!! You may speak four languages, Alexa (which also is impressive) but have you ever done a song parody in one of your trifecta of foreign languages?
Also not impressed - October 26, 2015 - Report this comment
Someone tooting their own horn is NOT a parody in ANY language. I'll side with Laura and Alexa.

Another muted exercise in self-congratulation from the falsely-modest daredevil adrenaline junkie, containing no insight, information, narrative or wit.
Paavo Nurmi - October 26, 2015 - Report this comment
There is no extra credit for writing a parody in a second language. Being impressed by bilingualism is a personal appreciation, but irrelevant to this site's purpose. In fact, Susanna has been given a pass on her grammatical errors, particularly the dropping of the article "the." This may be the biggest song parody site in the Finnish speaking world. I suggest she either perfect her English or write a (legitimate) parody in Finnish.

Susanna, you have achieved a remarkable resumé of parodies covering a wide range of original songs, on a reasonably wide range of topics. Of your earlier songs, in particular, some of the chemistry parodies were quite amusing. But here's my view. English is an extraordinarily difficult language, and the use of articles ("the"s which disappear), verb-preposition combos and accented syllables defy rules. Years of helping grad students with scientific papers has shown me that few intelligent people appreciate how strikingly ESL-like a wrong word choice can sound, e.g. a paper about "The Climate Change" signals from miles off that the presenter did not get enough help with language. Lyrics seem looser, but they are often a careful blend of standard, street-language and slang, e.g. country and western. You could make up for this obstacle by humility and tolerance, mixed with meticulous attention to meter and word-use; but you might need some aid to incorporate word-variants, word-play, interesting jargon and unusually accented words. Treat the OS with sarcasm or respect, but not indifference; I would prefer that you leave out the ethnic disparagement and the thinly-veiled insults in Finnish in your songs and comments. "I look forward to your further published efforts", but why not let ideas ripen on a personal blog-site before submitting them here?

@ the decedent: Your comment scores a bullseye, but only the rarest of writers, e.g, Vladimir Nabokov has the genius to achieve what you propose for Susanna -- mastery of a foreign vernacular by an adult. I once wrote a short story which relied heavily on Irish brogue. A language-sensitive friend pointed out that I should include "the" as a noun modifier in one particular sentence. Of course! By English standards, Irish street-language has a surfeit of "the's." The understanding of that fact settles in the bones of the language-alert after they experiencie the speech through its sound and its appearance on the printed page.

Language is not just hard-wired. At its best it's a merging of talent, obsession and hard drinking. Obsession? You see a written word and you must find the smaller, hidden, anagrammatic words within that word. I do the same, but like Woody Allen I am mostly a student of the over-baked sentence: "I lamped her callipygian attributes." I used to correspond with the late William Safire of the N.Y. Times. Aside from his conservative writings, he authored a weekly column "On Language."

To everyone: Some of us live our dreams while the others dream of their lives.

Dave: Parkour is neat, but my physique won't let me do it. BASE jumping OTOH is an insanely dangerous thing which I won't touch with three meter pole.

Laura: Go ahead and write your own parody. Why not share your own experiences in the form of music and poetry?

Alexa: I wanted to be a skydiver, not a paratrooper. Likewise I want to be a sailor, not a marine. While I come from a military family, I am not a soldier nor do I want to be one. Isn't being a mother woman enough? And why not write your own parody as well in any of those languages you master? I speak seven languages, and can well understand Spanish, French and Italian, if that is an issue.

Paavo: Kateellisten panettelua.

To everyone: Skydiving was my teenage dream which I finally got fulfilled this summer. I think everyone ought to have dreams and also pursue them. They may get realized. On what comes to the drop zone and people there itself, our local has some 2:3 ratio on girls/boys, and I did meet three of my old friends there. One of them was my dearest enemy from my swimming days, another was a colleague from my past job and third was a friend from Helsinki U. of Tech days. None of those girls was exactly surprised to see me there.

Anyway, thanks everyone for those 1's. It appears I didn't write a song which people would relate with indifference. Hatedom is publicity as well.

Susanna, no one gives a sh*t about your idiotic dreams. Anyone can pay for skydiving lessons. When have you ever matched me in any of the skills I have presented? Where are your trophies and awards? I'll bet you're nothing but an ugly troll of a woman. That's why you have to sail alone and jump alone. My man is my dream along with my three wonderful daughters. We are a loving family. Life is about relationships, not absurd solo adventurism! I thank God every day for what I have. My mom was my inspiration for everything I ever participated in and that led me with God's help to find my spouse who was a young journalist covering one of my events. We have been happily married for over a quarter century. I have been following this site as recommended by a mutual friend for fun. I'm not aware that I have to submit parodies to rate or post a comment as it is open to the public. You don't have the body for parkour means you don't have the body for cheerleading, gymnastics, acrobatics, champion horseback riding, safe diving, nor roller derby. I'll start writing parodies when you can match my skills and win trophies. And now you speak seven languages to classically one-up Alexa who speaks four? I don't believe you. Unless you are a global business woman, why would a lowly Finn need to learn seven languages? Prove it, Biotch!
Alexa - October 27, 2015 - Report this comment
It's OK Laura, I'm a travel agent by profession. English is my native tongue. I picked up Spanish in High School, and added the romance languages to my resume. I have traveled the world over, so I have put them to good use. I am currently studying Japanese and dabble in dead languages as well. Susanna should try Akkadian! Seven languages is great if they serve a purpose. I have friends everywhere I land. I've never been skydiving yet, but when I do it will be a group event that is filmed! I love people, so I don't do things alone.

Hey, if anyone here ever goes to Finland, beware! These people are some of the rudest, backwards, inbred, forrest creatures on the planet. First thing you notice is that they don't smile. They seldom ever say please, thank you, excuse me, etc... a nation of no manners like bad children. In several thousand years they have yet to master small talk. All they do is grumble about their miserable lives. I once visited there with a friend and no doubt it was the worst European country I have ever come across. Even the Icelanders were more hospitable! Same for the Russians once we got to Moscow! We were invited immediately to a club, after party, and met a lot of new friends. Not a single friend in Finland. Socially backward place.

The Finns are OK, they're holding of the Russians in Northern Europe without any costly (to the American taxpayers) NATO-bases on their territory. And since when are parody lyrics subjected to the grammatical rules of scientific papers? In music flow trumps grammar - a missing "the" and many other tools of the trade often doesn't matter much if the earworm quality of a song also has the context giving power of a babel fish.
Why so hateful? - October 28, 2015 - Report this comment
Under the circumstances, this outpouring of hatred at SV is mind boggling. If you utterly despise SV writing about this particular topic, why would you click on the title, "Living in the Drop Zone.", seeing as how there were forty other titles you could have chosen. How did you even see SV's submission, given that some newbie author flooded the site with 23 separate submissions!! But no one has anything to say about that

It's shameful how many comments and votes are from the same person posting under multiple accounts. Probably because they should have been banned years ago because they are completely incapable of posting their hateful crap under their usual name. It's probably time for me to fix that.
