GUEST,bernieandred Great Parodies (58* d) Great Parodies 15 Jan 10


In the non musical threads there's something about fish & chip shops being 150 years old, & someone reminiscing about Hollands meat pies.
Probaby the best parody that I ever heard was Les Barker's ode to Hollands meat pies, to the tune of the Everly Bros "Ebony Eyes".
This has everything that the perfect parody needs, in my humble opinion.
It sticks very closely to the original rhymes, then makes humour out of the over the top sentimentality of the original, & the recitation in a fake American accent, by Les is the icing on the cake.
Any body like to nominate their "Best" parody??
Max Boyce did a great job with Johnny Mathis's "12th of Never" & also "Deck of Cards". Any others?
