♪♫ Say, Where'd Twenty-Fifteen Go? ♫♪ A Recap of 2015 to Somewhere Over the Rainbow

     Per usual, 2015 provided us with plenty of comedic material--half of it more bizarre than any parody!  The lyrics are mine.  The awesome vocalist prefers to remain anonymous, so I'll just metaphorically place a Garland at her feet.

To  Somewhere Over the Rainbow: 

Sung Version on YouTube Here

~
Say, where’d twenty-fifteen go?
Blazed on through!
Record drought baked the planet
Legalized weed did too

Say, Where’d twenty-fifteen go?
Freaks in news—
Jared, Duggar and Cosby
Fifty Shades of ‘loose screws’

Recall how Speaker Boehner quit
And Brian Williams’ hubris-fit
of ly-ing
Now Hef’s a ‘prude’ and Bieber’s ‘whack’
And Rachael D’s convinced she’s ‘black’
While Sheen’s still fly-ing!

Say where’d twenty-fifteen go?
No debate—
Carson, Cruz, Trump and Clinton
Made Kanye seem sedate

Say where’d twenty-fifteen go?
Disney’s pissed!
Lucas leaked their new film’s plot:
“Jar-Jar’s now ‘Cait-the-Sith”

This year we rarely found rainbows
With ISIS and politicos all hating
As Kim Jong launched, the Russians sacked
While Nicki raunched, the Chinese hacked
And Tom’s de-flat-ing!

Say prayer: Next year is better
More upbeat—
That hope’s thin
Now “Kardashian’s”
Every other tweet…

Let’s pray that ‘sixteen
Brings more cheer ‘cause
Things ain’t
Twerkin' out this year
My
Dear!

Thanks, Ian!  This was so much more work than the last one where I basically dropped the audio track on the existing movie clip and synch'd speeds (turns out 'transitioning Jar-Jar Vogue covers and their ilk don't grow on trees).  I think my biggest take home lessons were that repetitive iconic lyrics tend to box you in and that slow songs make for inefficient joke delivery vehicles--although the dubious corollary of that logic is that the lyricless 'Flight of the Bumblebee' would be the ultimate song to parody!

Great lyrics and graphics!  The Farce is with you big time.
