#1

So it’s here, for the first time in Secret World Legends (to our knowledge). The MEGAversary Warped Songs contest!

This contest will ask for submissions from you, the community, to take a popular song and warp it into something… wonderful! Or something funny and perhaps even hilarious! Take a well know song and subvert the lyrics to fit SWL and it’s theme, it could be anything… from “The Sounds of Violence”, to “Filth Bomb” or “Filth Pools in Kaidan”. It’s for YOU to come up with something that fits the overall melody and structure of a song and just WARP the Be-Gaiazeus out of it!

There will be prizes for First, Second and Third Song which the Organizers of the MEGAversary will provide and possibly a previous cosmetic item which you might not have from Funcom! Woohoo!

Rules of Entry:

Try and keep things within the realms of decency.
Loosely fit the structure and melody of the song.
Have as much fun with it as you can.
Be a bit tasteful, nothing too outrageous!
Only one Submission per account.
Submit your in game name so that if you win prizes can be delivered.

The contest is open as of this thread and will run to 14th July 23:59 BST.
It will be judged on or about 15th July 2018, depending on the number of entries.

Winners will be announced here in this thread and on twitter, so let your creativity show, you never know where it will go! Feel the inspiration flow through you and never underestimate the power of the SWL side!

Well I’ve judged the song lyrics sent in and damn, some brilliant interpretations we have. It’s a really tough choice to be honest. Hmm… takes sip of whisky okies… I’ll post the songs first I suppose:

From the irrepressible Thing-Fish:

DONT YOU WANT ME ( HUMAN LEAGUE ) ADAPTED

Don’t Be A Templar Baby

You were workin’ for the jingo clan,
in susanoo’s bar,When I met you
I sussed you out, I shot you up and turned you from Red
Turned you into someone blue
Now five years later on
you’ve got agartha at your feet
Being Illumi has been so easy for you
But don’t forget, it’s me who pulled you from Kaidan’s Filth
but I can put you back in it too

Don’t, don’t be a Templar?
You know I can’t believe it
When I hear that Richard Sonnac wont see me
Don’t, don’t Be a Templar
You know I don’t believe you
When you say that Kirsten Geary Doesnt need me

It’s much too late to find
You think you’ve changed your mind
You’d better change it back or we will both be sorry

Don’t Be A templar, baby?
Don’t Be a Templar, ohh?
Don’t Be A templar, baby?
Don’t Be a Templar, ohh?

I was working for the Jingu clan
In Susanoo’s Bar
That much is true
But even then I knew I choose The faction I liked
Either with or without you
The five years we have had have been such good times
I still love Blue
But now I think it’s time I must turn Temp on my own
I guess it’s just what I must do

Im Turning Templar Baby
I know you wont believe it
When you hear that Richard wants to See me
Im Turning Templar Baby
I know you wont believe it
That I gotta shoot down Kirsten geary

It’s much too late to find
I think i’ve changed my mind
I wont change it back
or be sorry

Im Going Templar , baby?
Going Templar, ohh
Im Going Templar , baby?
Going Templar, ohh?
Im Going Templar , baby?
Going Templar, ohh?
Im Going Templar , baby?
Going Templar, ohh?
Im Going Templar , baby?
Going Templar, ohh?
Im Going Templar , baby?
Going Templar, ohh?
Im Going Templar , baby?
Going Templar, ohh?
Im Going Templar , baby?
Going Templar, ohh?

From OddManOut:

This little Winter gem will warm even the chilliest of hearts over your Solstice Celebration of Choice and is a perfect fit for the annual Winter festivities all throughout the Secret World.

To the tune of Frosty The Snowman:

Frost The Hitman
Was a psychopathic soul.
With a corncob pipe
And a button nose
And two eyes burning red as coals!
Frosty The Hitman was a Horror Tale they say!
He was made of Yellow Snow
But the Children know
How he came to life one Day!
There must have been
Some Madness in
That rusty old Ax they found!
For when they placed it in his Claws
He began to lurch around!
Oh, Frosty The Hitman was Undead as he could be!
And his Victims say
He would laugh and Slay!
As he runs down you and me!
Choppetty Chop Chop!
Choppetty Chop Chop!
Listen to Frosty roar!
Choppetty Chop Chop!
Choppetty Chop Chop!
Over the mounds of Gore!

From Cognizance:

TSWake me home, a warping of John Denver’s ‘Take me home’
By Amalie ‘Cognizance’ Sinclair

Not quite heaven, Kingsmouth County
Blue ridge mountain, Miskatonic river
Dreams are old there, older than the trees
Hiding under mountains, a lullaby of bees
Dunwich road, take me home
To the place I belong
Kingsmouth County
Solomon Island, take me home
Agarthan roads
All these mysteries, gather round her
Lady Margaret, covered in red seaweed
Dark and filthy, watching from the sky
Static taste of 3AM, dripping from my eyes
Desert roads, take me home
To the place I belong
al-Merayah
Hidden city, take me home
Snowy roads
I hear her voice in the sleepless song she sing to me
Radios reminds me of the dead far away
Fight’in in the room I get a feeling
That I’ve got some place to go, oh, Tokyo, Tokyo
Filthy roads, take me home
To the place I belong
Kaidan District
Orochi Tower, take me home
Secrets roads
Chosen roads, reap what you sow
There’s a place I belong
Ealdwic borough
London Calling, take me home
Limelight roads
Take me home, down secret roads
Take me home, down secret roads

From Gaem:

Cairo Train
(Original: Soul Asylum – Runaway Train)

Call me up in the middle of the night
For a very long but easy fight
You were talking about what I could gain
Next thing I know I’m speeding on a train

So tired of killing atenists
So many of them only use their fists
Promised myself I wouldn’t grin
But it’s really hard to keep it in

They just seem so hard to find
But no lore will be left behind
This time I will really gather all of them

Cairo train never gonna stop
Not unless I blow the engine up
It shouldn’t take this long to get there
Somehow it seems to take forever

Can you stop, mister Abdel Daoud
Running after you makes me tired
Why on earth can’t he drop that shotgun
Kill him fast and we finally get this done.

I can go on top of the train cars
I can jump over the railroad signs
Now I’m hanging on the side on a rail
Without a ticket on the Cairo train

Everything is linear
No end to it, as I get near
Somehow I… want to ride that tank

Cairo train never gonna stop
Not until I blow the engine up
It shouldn’t take this long to get there
Somehow it seems to take forever

Started mission and I’m not going back
Forever staying on the endless track
Bag is full, so visiting Agartha
No way, I have to do this for the Marya!

Cairo train never gonna stop
Not until I blow the engine up
It shouldn’t take this long to get there
Somehow it seems to take forever

From Leogrim:

Mod, Check!
GM, Check!
Andy, Check!
Duuh, what’s a Andy?
You are a Andy, okay?
Ohh (laughs)
Now, where were we?
Guys, you hear that?
Hear what?

By Jingi

Dungeon-DABS!

Ah we can DABS if we want to, we can leave your party behind
Cause your party don’t DABS and if they don’t DABS
Well they’re no party of mine.

And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave Agartha far behind,
And we can DABS.

Cause your party don’t DABS and if they don’t DABS
Well they’re no party of mine.

And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave Agartha far behind,
And we can DABS.

DABSs!

Ah we can queue we want to the night is young and so am i
And we can dress real neat from our bunny-hats to our monster-feet
And surprise Lurker with the victory cry.

I say we can buff if want to if we don’t nobody will
But please don’t act like a rude dude and have DABS totally removed
So I wont look like a DPS imbecile.

I say we can DABS, we can DABS every boss out of control
We can DABS, we can DABS we’re doing it wall to wall
We can DABS, we can DABS everybody look at your health
We can DABS, we can DABS everybody takin’ the wealth.
Dungeon DABS

Oh well the dungeon DABS
Ah yes the dungeon DABS

Everything’ll work out right.

I say, we can DABS if we want to we can leave your party behind
Cause your party don’t DABS and if they don’t DABS
Well they are no party of mine.

Katelin’s Warped Song:

Here is my warped destruction of The Beatles, “Please please me”.

Last night we headed to a dun-uh-un-geon
It was just E5, nothing har-aar-der
C’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon)
Cleave cleave me, whoa yeah, like I cleave you

We know that Klein don’t have the words, love
Why does he always have to tell us?
C’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon)
Cleave cleave me, whoa yeah, like I cleave you

Dodge the motes of Hekaturgist
But we know there’s always motes on our heads (from Herr Klein)

We do interrupting with you, Orochi dead O-ops
With you, whoah yeah, why is the chest not blue

Last night we headed to a dun-uh-un-geon
It was just E5, nothing har-aar-der
C’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon), c’mon (C’mon)
Cleave cleave me, whoa yeah, like I cleave you
(Me) Whoa yeah, like I cleave you
(Me) Whoa yeah, like I cleave you

And this song in pictures and words from Insein :smile: :

These are all bloomin’ brilliant folks…


#12

I mean man, I thought I was over with things, but this seems to be the toughest event for the MEGAversary. However these three stood out:

3rd Place - Lithicus:

Original Song: The King Welcomes You To Avatar Country by Avatar

Warped Song: (The Bees Welcome You To) Agartha Country

“Our wisdom! Tastes sweet!”, they said!
We’re thinking, “How are we not dead?!”
We floated up from the floor, blew holes in windows and walls!
Our homes are ruins or worse! Followed by maddening verse… from “The Buzzing”!

What started a week ago just led me into a tree!
A transdimensional world! Without an ending in sight!!

AGARTHA COUNTRY! Now you’ll believe!
AGARTHA COUNTRY! What we have to tell you!
And you’ll fight for us! Saving the whole world!
AGARTHA COUNTRY! Wisdom is sweet!

You are immortal now! So you can venture to… AGARTHA COUNTRY!

Your masters don’t understand!
The truth of all Those Who Dream.
Their Filth should never exist! It’s breaking reality!
Seeping through cracks in the earth! It wins, we’ll have a rebirth! (Have a rebirth!)

Three Ages have come before!
Each time, the Dreamers woke up!
Resetting everything! The cycle can’t be escaped!

AGARTHA COUNTRY! You must believe!
AGARTHA COUNTRY! That we need you all here!
The Bee merged with you and you’ll never die!
AGARTHA COUNTRY! Wisdom is sweet!

You are immortal now! We hope you’re staying in…
Agartha Country.

AGARTHA COUNTRY! Follow our voice!
AGARTHA COUNTRY! We are harmless to you!
Our buzz gives you power you use to fight!
AGARTHA COUNTRY! You’ll all be free!

Free to live anywhere! Long as you’re soldiers of… AGARTHA COUNTRY!

Agartha Country! (x4)

2nd Place - Drina:

Ur-Draug Rhapsody
lyrics by DJ Drina - Happy Tentacle Radio
Is this the real life? (No)
Is this just fantasy? (Yes)
Caught in a waterslide
I will shift your reality
Rending the veil
Look around through the blue and see
I am a big boy, I have no sympathy
Because you’re easy kill, easy throw
Pulverize, all your bones
Anyway the tide flows, doesn’t really matter to me, to me
Ur-Draug just killed a man
Put my fist right through his head
Slam attack, now he’s dead
Ur-Draug, helicopter had just flown
But now I’ve gone and punched it from the sky
Ur-Draug, oooh-oooh-oooh
Didn’t mean to make you die
Maybe your bee will bring you back again this time tomorrow
Cosmic Gaze, Cosmic Gaze, I’m destroying matter,
Too late, your time has come
Sent shivers down your spine
Body’s aching from my slam
Goodbye everybody… your final blow
Gotta leave you all behind to face my brood…
Ur-Draug, ooh-ooh-ooh
I don’t want to die
I sometimes wish you’d never been bee’d at all
I see a little silhouetto of a man in the blue
Where’d you go? Where’d you go? I will pulverize this rock-oh
Your thunderbolt and lightning… very very frightening me
Gaia’s bee, Gaia’s bee,
Gaia’s bee, Where’d you go?!
Ur-Things gooooooo~
I am a big boy and nobody loves me
He is a big boy from a tentacled family.
Don’t spare his life - he’s a monstrosity
Easy come easy go, I will break your bones
Cosmic sundering - break your bones!
Anima barrier! I cannot break your bones! Break your bones!
Anima barrier! I cannot break your bones! Break your bones!
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh Ur-Draug, Ur-Draug, I cannot break their bones!
Gaia has made these bees too strong for me
For me
For me
So you think you can shoot me and zap my eye?!
So you think you can shoot fire at me and leave me to die?!
Oh bee, can’t do this to me bee
Just gotta get out just gotta get one Cosmic Sundering out on you
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Now I’m shifting matter
Anyone can see
Rending the veil won’t save meeeeeee….
Anyway the tide flows…

But First place had to go to someone and it went to -

1st Place - EvilPinkiePie:

From Pinkie Pie’s ‘Smile Song’

My name is Pinkie Pie (Hello!)
And I am here to slay (How ya doin?)
I’m gonna make you die and that
Will brighten up my day
It doesn’t matter now (What’s up?)
If you are sad or Blue (Illuminati!)
Cause healing up my friends is what my hammer’s here to do

[Chorus]
Cause I love to see you die, die, die
Yes I do
It fills my hammer with rage, I won’t lie
Yes it does
Cause all I really need’s a pile, pile, pile
Of these enemies of mine

[Verse 2]
I like to see you grim (Awesome!)
I love to see you scream (In fear!)
The corners of your mouth turned red is always Pinkie’s dream (From blood!)
But if you’re kind of worried
That I would let you down
I’ll work real hard and do my best to hammer away that frown

[Chorus]
Cause I love to maim, maim, maim
With you
Busting out from ear to ear in great pain
Just point my hammer at where to aim
And I’ll fill you with good heals

[Verse 3]
It’s true some days are slow and boring
And maybe u mad, bro
But Pinkie will be there to show that it isn’t that bad
There’s one thing that makes me happy
And makes that whole bee worthwhile
And that’s when I gather my friends and get them to die
I really love my hammer
It’s heft fills me with glee
I give a death I get a death
And that’s so special to me
Cause my hammer loves to beam, beam, beam
Yes I do
Cover my hammer in blood until it gleems
That I do
But I’m not as cruel as I seem, seem, seem
It just always makes my day
Come on every bee, die, die, die
Fill my rage up with bloodshed, bloodshed
All I really need’s a pile, pile, pile
Of these enemies of mine

[Choir and Pinkie]
Come on every bee, die, die, die
Fill my rage up with bloodshed, bloodshed
All I really need’s a pile, pile, pile
Of these enemies of mine

[Pinkie Pie]
Yes the perfect gift for me ([Choir] Come on every bee and die, die, die)
Is a pile as wide as a mile (Fill my rage up with bloodshed, bloodshed)
To make me healthy as can be (All I really need’s a pile, pile, pile; From these enemies of)

[Choir and Pinkie Pie]
Die, die, die, die, die

[Pinkie Pie]
Come on and die
Come on and die

They were all brilliant, I’m really chopped up that I could not offer more prizes, but in the end there can bee only one… err well, three :slight_smile:

Thanks all for entering this contest and remember that the sounds of Violence will follow you, always:

This is my Warped Song - “The Sounds of Violence” By Filth Poul Simian and Caveman Speilunkel.

Hello violence, my old friend
I’ve come to shoot you dead again
Because a bullet softly creeping
Left its mark while I was raging
And the incision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of violence

In cobbled streets I walk alone
Dodging vampires the want my bones
'Neath the halo of a new blood vamp
I pulled to trigger to make my stamp
When the walls were light up by the flash of a flamers light
That fired the night
And touched the sound of violence

And in naked Argatha I saw
Ten thousand nude people, maybe more
People talking without texting
People texting without thinking
People writing songs that dreamers never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of violence

Fools, said I, I’ll make your corpses glow
violence like a mania grows
See my rifle so that I might leech you
Take my signet so that I might breach you
But my words, like silent confetti fell
And echoed in the wells of violence

And the Dragon Crazies bowed and prayed
To the neon numbers they made
And Templar Hall flashed out its warning
To kill the danger was forming
And the numbers said, the words of the dreamers are written on mankind’s souls
And decadent halls
And whispered in the sounds of violence
