Sgt. Pepper 2.0 by cortex

Sgt. Pepper 2.0 is a Metafilter-centric parody of the Beatles’ “A Day in the Life,” put together by cortex, using lyrics from It’s Raining Florence Henderson.

Note: cortex pronounces “LOL” as “lohl,” not (as I thought) “lawl.”

What If God Wanted Pasta Sauce by sparkletone

What If God Wanted Pasta Sauce is a very earnest-sounding spoof of Joan Osborne’s “One Of Us,” about the Flying Spaghetti Monster and Pastafarianism.

As an aside, using subjunctive voice, the original lyric should be “what if God were one of us,” not “was.” Performing the corrected version at karaoke (as a Militant Grammarian) struck my fancy, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

A historical curiosity: I’ve been posting songs in the order they were originally posted, and I recently caught up to the date I joined Metafilter. Aware by Electric Winter and Get Out of My Songs by goodnewsfortheinsane were both posted that day.
