Calling all musicians... well, lyricists, really.

I think the third stanza is a repeat of the first, Grumps, judging from the meter. Could be wrong. Anyway, I metered it out to match Shatner, not Elton John, and I did take some liberties.

Well I looked up the lyrics and see what you mean. The only version I had seen (recently) was what was in the kar file.

She packed my bags last night preflight.

Zero hour nine AM

And I''m gonna be high as a kite by then
I miss the earth so much I miss my wife
It''s lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight

And I think it''s gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I''m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no I''m a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone.

And I think it''s gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I''m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no I''m a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone

And I think it''s gonna be a long long time
And I think it''s gonna be a long long time

The karaoke version obviously rook some liberties as well.... Which is why Demi had to (masterfully) re-order your performance.

Now if we could just get William Hung to sing Weiner Bomb!.

Oh Fletch, dude, I''ve always been amused by you...but this moves it right into adoration, it does. Genius my friend, genius.

Demiurge, that was freakin'' brilliant mixing. Gods, I love you people so much!

Fletcher, you are my new hero. Demiurge is my new demihero.
I''m completely satisfied now, but am totally interested in the 2112 mix, too.

I love you guys!

Nice work Demi. Very very cool.

Honestly Grump, I hated that .kar music when I heard it, that''s why I went with the shatner arrangement, but Demi''s masterful mixing has shown me the light. I now see the possibilities.

If I can get the proper quantity of bourbon in me tonight, I''ll record another vocal track that should fit a little better. Until then however, I am deeply content. Nice work everyone. Miller time.

Someone get Sanjuro a copy of this on CD right this minute!

It''s a shame that Halo 2 doesn''t support custom soundtracks. It is after-all the game that brought us the wonders of the Weiner Bomb.

This is going into Sanjuro''s ""mood music"", for when the Civ2 girl comes over.

You know, my wife asked about the origins and I had no problem finding the thread that started it all... but then she asked how it then came to be associated with ""Sanjuro''s Junk"" (she also said ""poor Sanjuro"" but I straightened her out on that front) and I drew a blank. Can you help a brother out? Thanks.

OK, I laughed out loud at the original recording, because I somehow got the mental image of Fletch sitting at a trendy poetry slam, saying that. But with music, is was much, MUCH funnier.

That''s my fault. Apologies to any concerned parties

I never intended for the song to be explicitly about Sanjuro, but I felt it needed to be about ""something."" I mean, what''s a wiener bomb anyway? I decided that a wiener bomb was someone with shaved junk. The original Rocket Man was as much about the pain of being an astronaut as the pride. So too, I felt, should Wiener Bomb be.

Of course, all of this meditation took about five minutes, so you could just as easily say I grabbed the first mental images that flooded into my head. The question would then be ""Why is Fletch so preoccupied with Sanjuro''s junk?"" Perhaps we shouldn''t explore that.

This thread is so fun to come home to!

It was a convergence of worlds,really. Deva''s weiner bath bomb is what brought it full circle I think.

So it didn''t happen until this thread. Phew, I thought I might have actually missed something in my obsessive reading of the GWJ boards.

Well, perhaps the seeds were sown during the discussion over Deva''s bath weiner bomb in the ""too much stuff"" thread - but I don''t want to hit anyone over the head with it...or do I?

from said thread:

Now Fletch, it''s ok to tell them that I''m your muse...

I realize it''s entirely possible that this had nothing to do with Fletch''s inspiration to make his weiner bomb about shaved junk, but wanted to point out that the connection had been made prior to this thread. Or have you all blocked out my posts? FINE THEN!

Fletch & Demi, that is brilliant. I''m making it my homework over the next week or so to come up with an original tune in homage to the mighty Weiner Bomb.

Having originally experienced Weiner Bomb as someone applied a shotgun to the back of my head at point blank range, I am going to have to diverge on the interpretation. The shaved junk thing is but one aspect of a multifaceted concept, and to me Weiner Bomb will always have to do with getting pwn3d by some 14 year old punk ass bitch. Or shooting Jehova''s Witnesses with a Halo 2 shotgun. See? The Weiner Bomb is a veritable cornucopia of wonders!

You''re right, of course, rabbit. You planted your seeds in my fertile ... um ... word .doc.

The Weiner Bomb is a veritable cornucopia of wonders!

Oh, weiner bomb...is there anything you can''t do?

There''s plenty of weiner bomb to go around. I''d love to hear a song that''s about Halo 2 and 14 year olds, and yet obtuse enough to be about literal explosive wangs.

A slight update: Fletch sent me a new vocal track late last night. When I''ve got some time I''ll play around with it. Expect more Elton John Weiner Bomb in the near future.

I don''t know how it could be any better than the Shatneresque version, but I''m definitely looking forward to more WB goodness.

On another note, how about Rime of the Ancient Weiner Bomb by... uh, hell, shoot me now, I can''t believe I forgot their name. British band(I think). Always a skeleton/zombie on the cover art, it''s on the tip of my brain. Iron Maiden! Yeah! Duuuuudes.

I wonder if anything by Queen would match up, syllable-wise, because that might just be too much weiner bomb humor for one forum to contain.

Yeah the new track fits better with the midi music and is more martini than bourbon. Should be good unless I forgot to turn on the mic, which is always a hazard at Fletcher Studios.

I believe that The Miracle from the album of the same name would be the most perfect song imaginable for the Weiner Bomb treatment.

*reads above*
*thinks*
*head explodes*

It''s GENIUS Podunk! It must be done.

I don''t think I know the song, I just knew that Queen and Weiner Bomb were a match made in heaven. (Also, I think someone should do Ironman. I can hear it in my head... I AM WEINER BOMB DAna NAna NAnana NA NA NAAAAAAA)

Also the Ramones: (We''re a happy family) We''re a happy weiner bomb, etc.

Ironman has been cracking me up since the Duck mentioned it last night...what''s really funny is that almost none of the lyrics would have to be changed. Ozzy, you big weiner freak.

Seriously...here''s the original lyrics:

Has he lost his mind?, Can he see or is he blind
Can he walk at all? Or if he moves will he fall?
Is he live or dead? I see thoughts within his head.
We''ll just pass him there. Why should we even care?

He was turned to steel in the great magnetic field!
When he traveled time for the future of Mankind.
Nobody wants him He just stares at the world.
Planning his vengeance that he will soon unfurl.
Now the time is here for ironman to spread fear.
Vengeance from the grave kills the people he once saved
Nobody wants him they just turn their heads.

Nobody helps him now he has his revenge.

Heavy boots of lead fills his victims full of dread.
running as fast as they can Ironman lives again.

I''m willing to bet that we could get Ozzy to do a ""Weiner Bomb"" version for little to no money. If he''ll shill his ass in an MTV reality show, surely he''ll lend his voice to what could be the Internet Anthem of the Year.

It''s not Ozzy we have to convince, but Harriet... er, whatever her name is. She''s the one in charge.

Edit: Oh, and the Deva suggestion Aqualung by Jethro Tull. Teehee, this is fun. I wish I was more talented.

For the record: I will not sully Aqualung.

Iron Man might be fun. Let me see what I can do some day when I''m not working thirteen hours straight, or have just worked thirteen hours straight.

Ok...so you know what a fun use of 40 billion dollars worth of research is? (pardon the grammar there)

It''s this. Take the intro to 2112. Make it weinerbomb related. Feed that text into a zillion dollar text analyzer. Share the results.

Text I fed the machine:

I lie awake, staring out at the bleakness of Wienerbomb. Vein and Flesh become one, merging into a single plane, a vast sea of unbroken pink. The Twin Balls, just two pale orbs as they shudder under the wiener path. I used to think I had a pretty good life here.

Dear gods in heaven people...don''t let me play with the text toy any more. Soon, I''ll force it to read James Joyce and set American innovation back by 20 years when I short out the entire subconscious of the intarweb...

Sorry for the random revival, but I thought I should share. So, I'm minding my own buisiness at work, listening to my iPod on shuffle mode...and out of nowhere Fletcher's weiner bomb remix pops on. I had totally forgotten about it, of course, but upon hearing it so randomly I broke into some mad crazy hysterical laughter. My co-workers are still looking at me funny,and I refuse to share what it was that made me lose it. Thats all, done sharing

Good job again guys!

DS, I'm moved beyond words. Well, almost.

...and this is Reason to Stalk Fletcher #102! Or is it #1? I forget how they're sorted...Lobo?
