Parody of We Built This City by Starship

Post by Drassil » Wed Dec 26, 2018 7:14 pm

Our Christmas Number 1 for 2018 is a song parody: We Built This City ...on Sausage Rolls. Here's my version of the same song i.e. We Built This City by Starship (1985). It gives credit to Knightmare's actors of multiple parts and its man of magnificent art.

Music video (did Knightmare Series 3 take inspiration about 2-and-a-half minutes in?); original lyrics

I've also parodied Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now by Starship.

Michael plays Doorkis
(We barely saw his face)
Gatemaster and the Hun
And that Brother Mace
Ah Wok and Sir Hugh are
Lord Fear without fright
And there is Rothberry
All played by a Knight

Iona plays the bumbler
Witch queen and the lady foe
Don't you remember?

Valentine is playing
Motley, Boatman, Hands
Too bad he's also Fidjit
(Opposition plans?)
Clifford is the Dreadnort
Oakley shows his rage
He's calm as Owen and Smirkenorff
Righteous as the mage

Tom's Olaf and he's Bumptious
Mrs. Grimwold and the crow
Don't you remember?

They showed it on a Monday:
Children's ITV
We're pleased it moved to Fridays
When we got Series 3

Who paints the dungeon
Underneath the stars?
Who draws the wells and halls
The runes and the gars?
No spells match his greatness
His works are simply jewels
Chromakeyed for dungeoneers
Running from the ghouls

"Welcome, watchers of illusion to the castle of confusion..."
Don't be dismembered
"Phase with us now for this is the time of adventure..."

Mark's team first beat the dungeon
Wickson in the studio
Don't you remember?
They built this series
