First entry in for the Ballad of Todd Carney

By johnboy - 5 August 2008 51

The first entry is in for our songwriting competition round one.

Those with keen memories will recall the theme this time around is “Todd Carney“.

And so I present to you Thumper and The KnuckF*ckles and their Ballad of Todd Carney, with help on the lyrics from Colin Dixon.

UPDATED: And now you can enjoy it via YouTube (but the mp3 sounds better):

Nope, copied the idea of using the song, used some of his lyrics, and made up some of my own. (Also had to get some of the phrasing right which was difficult)

So it’s hardly plagerism, especially when credit has be given 😉

Good effort, Thumper. Just looking at the original post though… seems like it was more than just ‘help on the lyrics by Colin Dixon’… looks more like you copied his whole idea.

Oh well, plagiarists can’t be choosers.

Thumper said :

It was two thirds of The Feldons 😉

Good thinking, #66…

The video does add a certain je ne sais quoi … *chuckle*

Even my three-year-old is singing along: could be a bit of a problem at preschool tomorrow….

I guess we’ll have to reach an accomodation if it becomes an issue.

I’m just wondering if it would be original work not needing copyright permissions

johnboy 2:19 pm 05 Aug 08

Thumper and the Knuckf*ckles.

There might be some crossover with the Feldons going on.

Madman 2:17 pm 05 Aug 08

Who did the music?

Granny 2:09 pm 05 Aug 08

Thumper might get famous.

johnboy 1:44 pm 05 Aug 08

And over 100 downloads so far.

johnboy 1:16 pm 05 Aug 08

Oh they’re listening don’t you worry.

It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing … 🙂

Do we know anyone in radio?
