Perhaps you need to be from South Wales to appreciate it

Even better since apparently J-Zee or whatever he's called through his dummy out the pram and refused to let them release it as single - W##ke

In reply to Hugh J: Try a quick search for 'Key of Awesome' on youtube. They have done a lot of parodies of current pop songs, some better than others. My favourite is probably Bruno Mars 'Grenade' because it actually satirises the song rather than just replacing the lyrics with random funny stuff. They mostly only work if you know the song.

There is a truely delightful version of Katy Perry "I kissed a Girl" by a gentleman from Essex which is very NSFW about losing a bet on a building site and having to pleasure a bricky.

That has got to be Kunt and the Gang...

I've not heard that one but as soon as you said "bloke from Essex"...

In reply to Clarence:
I don't think it is as good as The Clegg and Cameron version of use my A as a C but it is rather chortle inducing. His royal wedding version of F**ksticks was also rather good.

It's not too bad - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dx8CZyFM4b4

(I'm surprised the first one is back on youtube, Mr Zee, or whoever, got very upset).

HMHB don't do spoofs ! They are far more original than that.

Surprised no-one has mention Weird Al yet! Maybe too obvious?

This is my favourite of his:

But have also found this, which runs it very close:

In reply to Hugh J:

Although not exactly a spoof, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is partly a tongue-in-cheek "mock opera", according to Freddy Mercury himself. Anyway, it's a great contender for Best of its genre - whatever that is!
Hugh J - on 11 Dec 2012
In reply to Chris Harris: So, it does and the Amish Paradise! Really should pay more attention!
Hugh J - on 11 Dec 2012
In reply to John Stainforth: I see your point. In fact Queen did lots of "spoof" stuff around that time; Bring Back Leroy Brown, Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon, Seaside Rendezvous, Good Company, The Millionaire Waltz and Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy.

Similarly so did Van Halen in their early days:

Dragging it back to climbing for a mo, I'll raise a glass to the legend that was Dr Tom Patey and nominate one of his songs: "Onward Christian Bonington". No sign of a recording on youtube, but you can find the lyrics here: http://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/page.php?id=1751 (scroll down)

Anyone remember the Hee-Bee-Gee-Bees "meaningless Songs (in very high voices)"?

Bad News at Donington was probably the highlight of my festival going life, despite being a spoof band.

In reply to Oujmik: the key of awesome spoof of Gotye's ,somebody that I used to know, is good,
I was not a fan of the Gotye tune all that much but it struck a chord with a lot of people,
Here is the spoof.
