Two Covers of Novelty Songs History Is Made By Stupid People – The Arrogant Worms – 1995 5,000 Candles In The Wind – Mark Rivers – 2010 ————————————————————– The Arrogant Worms are a Canadian band that specializes in comedy songs. Most of their songs are offensive in some way but this is probably one of the least offensive songs of theirs that I know. Lots of fun to play and sing. ————————————————————– 5,000 Candles in the Wind is a song that appears in the comedy series Parks and Rec. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parks_and_Recreation My daughter bought me the shirt and requested that I learn the song. If I was going to wear the costume then I was playing the character Andy Dwyer in my video. Sasha Fierce knows what that’s all about. In the TV show Andy Dwyer writes this song, but since Andy is a fictional character (and so can be played by any actor, even me) he couldn’t actually have written anything. The real story is both interesting and funny https://www.lamag.com/culturefiles/parks-and-recreation-5000-candles-lil-sebastian-mark-rivers/
Good ones – more Arrogant Worms!
Ok.. I got one more I’ve been doing for years, “Carrot Juice is Murder”.
But, then I need another novelty song to match it with. Yeah !!
I’d like to hear you play Disco Duck!!
That song traumatized me and might explode if I played it.
Why did they name themselves Arrogant Worms?
Beatles makes more sense
One of the great mysteries of the earth !
Well done. first time I heard of The Arrogant Worms. I enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing.
Loved those! Interesting back story to 5,000 Candles in the Wind. Never watched Parks & Rec but I’ve heard so many good things about it and love the actors-guess I’ll have to stream it!
Very entertaining Lamont! Thank you! Have to look up The Arrogant Worms now. 🙂
That was great Terry! I smiled all the way through!!!
Good job Lamont
