Strange Filk

I just ran across these parody songs on a link from Pharyngula. Not for the faint hearted. The top few are Christmas parodies (some seem to have a lost a line or two in the cutting and pasting). I suspect they would be more amusing if I'd actually read any Lovecraft, but they're entertaining enough as is.

Here's the first line from an Animaniac's parody:
"We're slimy, we're squishy, we're all a little fishy,
You humans are delishy and we're feasting on your brains!"

(odd, it says it's a parody of a They Might Be Giants song that I've never heard of. So either they wrote the melody for the Animaniac's theme song, or the citation is wrong *shrugs*)

Here's another fun one:
"God rest ye scary great old ones;
Let everything dismay.
Remember Great Cthulhu shall rise up from R'lyeh
To kill us all with tentacles
If we should go his way.

O tidings of madness and woe, madness and woe
O tidings of madness and woe!"

There's also "Victims roasting on an open fire."

Yes, I have a strange sense of humor. :-)
