Christian Parodies

I've been writing song parodies for as far back as I can remember (don't ask how far that is!). I think they've gotten good enough that others might enjoy hearing what I've come up with. So here we go. As of Feb 1, 2007, Mystic Tomato Studios is open for business, recording some of my songs. (The name comes from a Yu-Gi-Oh card I found on the ground one day.) Songs whose names are underlined are free for listening or downloading. The songs are arranged by original artist.

The recordings aren't about my guitar skills (which are strictly average) or my singing skills (which are even worse). They're about the words, which convey Biblical teachings in settings you will recognize. All lyrics are protected by default US copyrights. You are welcome to perform them live. Should you want to record them, we'll need a more formal arrangement.

Special thanks to:

  1. My wife, for the wondrous birthday gift of a Fostex MR-8 digital multitrack recorder.
  2. My best friend Ed, for the many parody ideas he's given me over the years.
  3. My other friend, Middie C. Quencer, for playing the drums, bass, and keyboards.
  4. ApologetiX, for showing me what a good Christian parody should sound like.
  5. God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), for the talent He's given me, the desire to use it for Him, and the forgiveness and grace that both make me want to worship Him and enable me to do so.
