I Have A Pretty Good Idea

Postby josepi » Mon Sep 02, 2002 9:32 pm

I'm not sure if it has been done yet but I would love to see Incubus's Pardon Me with a Dragonball theme (generally because the first line of the refrain is "Pardon me while I burst into flames")

Just a thought though :roll:
Love and Peace! ^_^

"Pardon Me"

Pardon me while I burst
Pardon me while I burst
A decade ago, I never thought I would be.
A twenty three on the verge of spontaneous combustion. Woe-is-me
But I guess that it comes with the territory.
An ominous landscape of never-ending calamity.
I need you to hear. I need you to see.
That I have had all I can take
And exploding seems like a definite possibility
To me
So Pardon me while I burst into flames.
I've had enough of the world, and its people's mindless games
So Pardon me while I burn, and rise above the flame
Pardon me, pardon me. I'll never be the same.
Not, two days ago I was having a look in a book
And I saw a picture of a guy fried up above his knees
I said I can relate
Cause lately I've been thinking of combustication as a welcomed vacation from.
The burdens of the planet earth, like gravity, hypocrisy, and the perils of being in 3-D...
And thinking so much differently.
Pardon me while I burst into flames.
I've had enough of the world, and it's people's mindless games
Pardon me while I burn, and rise above the flame
Pardon me, pardon me. I'll never be the same.
Never be the same...yeah.
Pardon me while I burst into flames.
Pardon me, pardon me, pardon me.
So pardon me while I burst into flames.
I've had enough of the world, and it's people's mindless games
So pardon me while I burn, and rise above the flame
Pardon me, pardon me. I'll never be the same.
Pardon me, never be the same. Yeah

OK, I should probably at this point say why i slapped.

It's to do with the problem of matching a metaphorical lyric with a concrete image. Bursting into flames is supposed to be metaphorical but by putting footage of DBZ characters going all SS completely ruins the metaphor.

As for the other lyrics, they're not actually that bad - although Incubus have been used a lot (I should know I've used them too). I just think that having an idea for a video based on that one lyric is a bad thing because inevitably it's quite cheesy. It just doesn't sit right.

Forced lyrical matches are difficult things to deal with at the best of times - making a whole video around a forced lyrical match is a recipie for disaster.

What AD said--his wisdom about metaphor vs concrete image is most sound.

That's why I've started posting lyrics for suggested songs--once you get past the title or suggested lyrical match, in some cases the whole idea comes crashing down when the rest of the song is shown.

Case in point being the DJ Honda idea elsewhere in this forum.

...but was it any good? :D

There are, perhaps unfortunately, several in the database that are a DBZ and "Pardon Me" combo.


Was it any of these?

Yikes. I might just have to join AD in his *slap* since this combo is hardly a new and novel idea.

Enough with the slapping it hurts after awhile.
(Sheesh it was just an idea! It's not like I already made the damn thing!)

It's tough love, kid. :D

But the idea does have merit, if it's handled properly. I'll have to check some of these links and see if the videos are any good.

Fraid I saw this one, and it wasn't all that good. BUT.... If you think you can do a better job, by all means do it. ( just please dont apply the random action scenes=video principle)

Oh yeah, like we REALLY need ANOTHER DBZ video. At this point, nobody should care if a video is good or not. In fact I don't think anyone does. Why? DBZ is the AVERAGE video. More people make DBZ videos than the people who don't!

PLEASE, MAKE SOMETHING WITH LOVE HINA OR something. There's no way they can be called overused when compared to the shyte that is DBZ...
