I forgot about the opening lines of this song. Trying to imagine Joni Mitchell urinating in a parking lot!

You ARE gonna play the Super Chicken theme song, right?

Hi all! Loads of critters on deck for you tonight. Happy to hear your suggestions for more -- if I don't get to them tonight, I might another week soon,

I'm looking specifically for music with human voices imitating animals or insects or fish or birds or water bears or whatnot

Good show. And for those who like comedy, Trump just tweeted this in the last hour, “A great day at the White House!”

!!! :D He's nuts.

I was thinking of medieval and Renaissance imitations, e.g., Janequin, mentioned in the article.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/31/17 7:27pm chris:

true fact, chickens are already in the whitehouse. today's tweet is the proof of the improvement over the trial run which resulted in 'covfefe' being sent out

I’ve seen chickens play tic-tac-toe. They are ready to make hard decisions.

I don’t believe you are playing the Fox song.

My only regret is that Gangam Style has no animal imitations in it

@Dan: Your regret… My blessing…

I am unclear as to how and why that last recording exists

"What does the Fox say" is pretty great satire of current pop song writing. It emulates the form perfectly while subverting it with absurd subject matter. I.e. you can have a "hit" about nothing at all if you paint by these numbers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/31/17 7:39pm JakeGould:

Whatever the fox says is… I’m tired… So tired… My soul… Tired… So… Tired…
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/31/17 7:40pm Jeff:

I was totally stoked to hear "What Does the Fox Say?" on WFMU. It's pleasingly crazed, and makes me smile.

I remember hearing it back when it was A Thing, although unsurprisingly the way I found out about it was that it was such a sensation in whatever world it existed in that parodies started being created which in turn leaked into my world...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/31/17 7:40pm JakeGould:

@Jeff: So did Weird Al do a parody that was like, “What does Fox news say?”
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/31/17 7:41pm Jeff:

@Jake: I hope not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/31/17 7:42pm Michael 98145:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/31/17 7:42pm Kat in Chicago:

That was a hit?

On the subject of life before Google:

I've really really loved that Chuck & Beans comic on the subject ever since I first saw it. It's perfect.

P.S. I hate it when my brain drops a piece of vocabulary. Obviously "parody" is more accurate than "satire of form". Sheesh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/31/17 7:49pm dale:

fun show! hello shirly - this is squirelly. 10-4!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/31/17 7:50pm JakeGould:

Parody means nothing in the age of Trump. Could Aaron Sorkin’s overwrought mind have come up with DA MOOCH?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/31/17 7:51pm Jeff:

@mcginniwa: I have blank spots in sentences where I know there's an exactly right word which isn't immediately coming to me all the time. Sometimes I google for synonyms to an almost-right word. In fact, I did it just then to get parody.
     Mon. 7/31/17 7:51pm mcginniwa:

Speaking of DA MOOCH, my nomination for Weird Al song is "What does DA MOOCH say?"
Avatar Mon. 7/31/17 7:52pm Richard S:

DA MOOCH says "I'm outta here!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/31/17 7:52pm Kat in Chicago:

OMG if Olga P visited the station Ken would plotz
     Mon. 7/31/17 7:52pm mcginniwa:

@Jeff I would say something deeply meaningful and informed, but I can remember the word right now ;)
     Mon. 7/31/17 7:53pm mcginniwa:

s/can/can't/
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/31/17 7:54pm Jeff:

Sorkin's Mooch would be completely unlike the real one - using words which went together much better and came in long fast strings in one take.
Avatar Mon. 7/31/17 7:54pm Richard S:

More like Joe "Goodfellas" Pesci
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/31/17 7:54pm JakeGould:

@Jeff: And it would all be boring, tedious and yet go on for 6 more episodes than needed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/31/17 7:55pm JakeGould:

Look folks, let’s ease off of this guy… HE’S ONLY HUMAN!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 7/31/17 7:57pm Jeff:

@JakeGould: them's fighting words. If you don't recognize and laud Sorkin's absolute mastery of the the art of writing dialogue, I will toss you out a window after poking you in one or more eyes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/31/17 7:58pm JakeGould:

Poke as many eyes as you wish… As long as they are not mine, I could care less!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/31/17 8:00pm JakeGould:

Aaron Sorkin, Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams stuck in an elevator. Now that would be something!
