    I loved it! I figured out most of not all of the song parodies, "Footloose", "Come On, Eileen", "Take On Me" and of course, "Don't Stop Believing".

    I hope they do more stuff like this in the future. Brings back memories of the earlier song parodies, which is awesome!

    I meant to post on here a couple days ago, but forgot to do so. Anyway...

    Like a lot of other people, I was hoping for some sort of montage of random SS clips from the 80's, but I think what they pulled off here was pure awesomeness! I personally hope they do more with the SS Glee Club...whether it's spoofs of songs from different decades or anything else that comes to mind!

    Personally I think it'd be cool if we got some more music mashups like 70's or 90's. The ideas are relentless...

    If we got a 90s mashup video, here's a few ideas I could see working:

    • "MMM-Mop" - Three letter Ms singing an ode to a mop.
    • "I Believe I Can Try" - Grover or Elmo singing about believing in themselves to try their hardest.
    • "Count the Babies One More Time" - Count counting babies
    • "Ice Ice Birdy" - Big Bird rapping while wearing cold weather gear
    • "I Want it My Way" - Two-Headed Monster trying to imitate the Backstreet Boys.
    • "All Stars" - Abby conjuring up superstar stars in the sky
    • "I'm Too Fuzzy" - Anyone of the monsters
    • "Blue (Da Ba De Da Ba Di) - Cookie and Grover, nuff said

    Dude, "I'm Blue" was my JAM back in the late 90's and early 2000's (and it seems to be the only song many Eiffel 65 "fans" seem to know). :rolleyes:

    I remember I did a hand-made music video of that song with Little Chrissy lip-synching the vocals back in 2007.... Cause he's blue. :D which now I think is just silly, but my 14-year-old self just had a more creative imagination back then.

    It's actually long-gone, unfortunately. :( I deleted it off my YouTube channel only for not taking the risk of a copyright strike and my computer got wiped as well. None the less, it isn't something that really stands out for me years later.

    My favorite parody was probably Super Grouch; I was watching them with my best friend and we agreed that 'Super Grouch' should be my theme song lol

    You know....

    I actually wonder if anyone on this board has listened to any of his songs outside of Never Gonna Give You Up out of my own curiousness? Anyone?

    Yup. I routinely listen to Comcast/xfinity's 80s Music Choice channel, and they do occasionally play some of his other hits like "Together Forever" and "She Wants to Dance With Me."

    I will admit, most of his songs sound the same ("Together Forever" seriously sounds like "Never Gonna Give You Up" with different lyrics), but they're so obviously 80s-sounding, I can't help but enjoy them.

    And, if you can believe it, he's actually planning a big comeback.

    I'm not going to lie when I say "Together Forever" is better than "Never Gonna Give You Up" imo.

    His songs do sound very similar, but in a good way to me. Not as something like, oh, say, Chris Brown throwing a tantrum of his love life?

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    As I said before, there are certain artists and groups that have a similar sound to a majority of their songs, that just can tell it's them you hear the opening notes: Hall and Oates are another example of this, as is Michael Jackson.

    Speaking of which, I swear "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" sounds like the kind of song M.J. would have written and orchestrated.

    Lol, a lot of so-called 'one hit wonders' have much better songs than the ones they're 'known for'.

    Also, I can barely listen to CB's new stuff, I stay listening to the song he did with David Banner and his early stuff lol
  16. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    This is something else I can agree with. I mean Phil Collins is certainly no "one hit wonder," but I like many of his other songs like "Against All Odds," "Another Day in Paradise," "Sussudio," and others than I do his signature hit "In the Air Tonight."

    Hall and Oates definitely has that music sound where you know it's them. (I also love that iconic picture of them looking at us all serious. :D )

    You know, I really wish Phil Collins could have made a guest appearance on Sesame Street if he hasn't already.
  18. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Well, he has recently made a comeback and is touring again, so who knows? Maybe there's still an opportunity.

    On an unrelated note, did you know Phil Collins auditioned to be on THE BUGALOOS? He apparently was one of the final choices to play I.Q. before it went to John McIndoe.
  19. LittleJerry92

    LittleJerry92 Well-Known Member

    I wouldn't have guessed.

    Most Phil Collins news I've heard lately is just people ragging on him. And frankly I feel like it's just because they watched South Park. :rolleyes:

    What about 80s TV game shows? They've done 'Squeal of Fortune' and what about 'Geoparady!' 'With your host, Alex Tree-Beak!!!!!'
