Can a song parody be considered a work of art? I've found that with many parodies the parody is more memorable that the original song was and in some ways can be more moving. As an example, the song "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt is a good song, but I've found that "Weird Al" Yankovic's parody "You're Pitiful" is both funny while also being a bit sad and emotionally moving.

Why do some songs inspire performers to release cover versions of songs? The Beatles' song "Yesterday" has inspired so many to release their own cover of the song, yet how many have considered releasing a cover version of "Revolution No. 9"?

It amazes me as to what people come up with!

The longest word to appear in a published crossword puzzle.

Quote:
The clue was “Giggling troll follows Clancy, Larry, Billy and Peggy who howl, wrongly disturbing a place in Wales (58)”, an anagram.[3]
Spoiler:

So the actual anagram is for "Giggling troll follows Clancy, Larry, Billy, and Peggy who howl wrongly'

The answer is
Spoiler:

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch


and yes... I just went and counted all the letters to ensure it was correct!

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolut...Cover_versions

Quote:
Kurt Hoffman's Band of Weeds performs "Revolution #9" on the 1992 album "Live at the Knitting Factory: Downtown Does the Beatles" (Knitting Factory Records). [30] The jam band Phish performed "Revolution 9" (along with almost all of the songs from The Beatles) at their Halloween 1994 concert that was released in 2002 as Live Phish Volume 13. Australian dance rock band Def FX recorded a version for their 1996 album Majick. Little Fyodor recorded a cover in 1987 and released it as a CD single in 2000.[31] In 2008, the contemporary classical chamber ensemble Alarm Will Sound transcribed an orchestral re-creation of "Revolution 9" which they performed on tour.[32] Also in 2008, the contemporary jazz trio The Neil Cowley Trio recorded both "Revolution 9" and "Revolution" for the magazine Mojo. "Revolution 9" has also inspired songs by punk group United Nations ("Resolution 9") and rock band Marilyn Manson ("Revelation #9"). It also inspired White Zombie's "Real Solution #9", which contains samples of a Prime Time Live interview that Diane Sawyer conducted with Manson Family member Patricia Krenwinkel. In the sample used Krenwinkel is heard saying: "Yeah, I remember her saying, I'm already dead."
So I make it to be six!

I've only heard one cover of "Tomorrow Never Knows" for that matter. It was done and done well by Phil Collins.
