That's was EXACTLY why I used that song! Honestly, Gilbert, all you silly accusations of me enjoying Katy Perry songs and singing along - pfft! :lol: For laughing! In fact, I find it very distracting to listen to the original version of a song when writing a filk to it, because the old lyrics keep overlapping the shiny new words blooming in the manure of my mind.
Pencil Monkey, as I can't walk past a radio at the moment without Katy Frikkin' Perry coming down my ears (oo-er), I want to thank you for making it constantly remind me of Whartstock, and so making the cold turkey back to reality much more bearable
Of course, in order to test the new lyrics, I did have to sing the new version several times, dancing wildly around the room - purely to test the rhyme and meter, of course...
