Song Parodies ->Authors -> MooRocca

You're not going to learn anything about me, as a person, from my parodies. They're not about me or even written from my point of view. Some were loosely inspired by real events, people or by the writing and humor of other Amiright authors, others simply appeared out of my own imagination and/or the rhyme schemes and cadances of the original songs.

Some were meant to be funny, some were meant not to be funny, some were writing exercises, some were my way of trying to figure out how to write to the tastes of Amiright's readership, some (particularly my social & political commentary parodies were my way of condensing the voices of many into the voice of a single character, a couple were written just to have something to enter in the contests and some were written because I wanted to play in an interesting rhyme scheme and/or cadence of an original song.

I've written humor, satire, poetry, fiction, essay, ad copy, scripts, websites, radio copy, slogans, etc... some of it professionally... but, I've been having fun making up alternate lyrics to songs (and making up other kinds of parodies) since before I was old enough to write any of it down. I had a blast during my stay. I participated in more than my share of silly exchanges in the comments section and I was thrilled to meet not only a cavalcade of parodists who are every bit my match, but many who are clearly my better.

(Not that I ever did have time, but) I no longer have time in my busy schedule to include parody writing among my hobbies. My life's journey has diverted me from the writing path, for the moment, at least. So, I can no longer use "writing & marketing exercise" as an excuse to indulge.

Maybe someday there will be some bonus tracks or unreleased material to add or maybe I'll even make a comeback. But, for now, my Amiright catalog stands complete. I hope it includes something you'll enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by to browse through my Amiright parody submissions.
