Rocket League (Rocket Man Parody)

A parody of Elton John’s Rocket Man, but instead of some space man it’s about the video game Rocket League.
My download finished last night, alright!
Day 1, nine p.m.
And I’m gonna have a ha-a-a-a-at
Trick by then
I miss my kids so much
I miss my wife
But I’ve gotta play one more game
And customi-i-i-ize my ride
And we’ve all been waitin’ a real long, long time
For the game to touch down on the Xbox One
And now we know the fun they had all along
On other platforms…
Playing Rocket League
Rocket League
Burnin’ up my boost
Trying to hit the ball
This ain’t the kind of game
To show your kids
You might never get your controller back
And it’s probly gonna have that Cheeto grease
If you did
And all this hype
I finally understand
I quit my job
I stay at home
Playing Rocket League
Rocket League
But now I’m scoring goals with back flips
And searching Reddit for some gameplay tips
A perfect pass and then a clean assist
Ah, oh oh oh
Rocket League
Rocket League
Cruisin’ in my jet-powered Battle Car
(when are you going to find a job)
Well I think it’s gonna be a long, long, time
(Dad, are you hungry?)
Well I think it’s gonna be a long, long, time
(Are you coming to bed)
And I think it’s gonna be a long, long, time

Screamride (Unofficial Theme Song)

Screamride Album Art

Last week I found myself explaining the video game Screamride to a family member (I’m sure it was relevant to the conversation somehow).  In the hours following, I became nearly obsessed with the game.  I needed to see the announcement trailer again.  I needed to know the release date.

Why was I suddenly so interested in this game?  I just think it sounds like a bunch of fun.  But I didn’t realize how fun it sounded until I described it out loud to another person.

I tweeted the producer of the game and asked if they were interested in having a silly song about their game included in their game.  He let me know that they have all of the music that they need.  I went ahead and wrote the song anyway.

Screamride comes out March 2015 for Xbox One and Xbox 360

My song is available for streaming and download now.

Hey! They told me that you like extreme adventure
So what do you say, you take a ride on my roller coaster?
It goes clack clack clickitty clack clack clickitty clack
Up to the top but there’s no guarantee you’ll make it back
If they told you at the gate that this was safe then someone lied..

I’m gonna take you on a Screamride
This won’t hurt at all
At least until you hit that wall

Keep your arms and legs inside
Should you lose a valuable
I won’t be held responsible

Bring a helmet, if you’re able
The second corkscrew’s a little unstable
And don’t say that I didn’t warn you, I tried.

I heard you liked loops!  Yeah, I can assure you, we have a bunch
I heard you like twists, we’ve got enough to make you lose all your lunch
And then there’s these things that we call the destroyers
I’m not supposed to mention because lawyers
But Tommy wet his pants and Sally cried

All because of my Screamride
I’m sure you’re gonna have a ball
On that 100 meter fall

Dropping harder than a landslide
You couldn’t be braver
Just sign this here waiver

It was tested, Inspected and turned out rejected
All just because the car can come disconnected
But don’t say that I didn’t warn you, I tried.

Ahhh, I don’t want my attitude to seem
Mean or uncaring, but all I want is just to hear you scream
(from excitement, of course)

Whoa! I didn’t think that we’d see you again
Oh, and I’m glad that your injury is on the mend
I’ve reduced your admission amount
I’ve given you the survivor discount
We had all written you off and assumed that you had died

Welcome back to my Screamride
I think you’re gonna be OK
We’ve got a doctor on the way

I never meant to misguide
I don’t understand your gripe
This is just a prototype

Thanks for your help in improving our theme parks
You’ve helped provide us with many new bench marks

And soon we’ll be opening worldwide.
