    Default 1999 (Parody of "1985" by Bowling for Soup)

    1999
    Parody of “1985” by Bowling for Soup
    With new lyrics by Steven “Yoshi” Reich (yoshi1001@aol.com)


    Woo hoo hoo!
    Woo hoo hoo!
    Couldn’t resist the call
    Of “gotta catch ‘em all”
    One hour a day
    Couldn’t drag you away
    Your list was down to four
    Then they made hundreds more
    Had to take a break, man
    What happened to your plan?

    You were gonna be a master
    You were gonna go so far
    You were gonna drive to class
    In a yellow Pika-car
    Your fellow devotees are nowhere to be seen
    Look at your college life
    And nothing, has been...
    all right since

    Ash Ketchum, his momma
    Way before Carvahna
    There was Mewtwo and Misty
    And what happened to Togepi?
    Your two friends, from high school
    They tell you that you’re uncool
    Cuz you’re still preoccupied
    With 19, 19, 1999

    Woo hoo hoo!
    (1999)
    Woo hoo hoo!

    You saw all the evos
    You knew every line
    Marowak, Pidgeotto
    Even for Arcanine
    Had Alakazam
    Not a big Gardevoir fan
    Thought you'd make a stand
    On the leader of Viridian

    Where's the Lickitung, what’s a Shaymin?
    And who's the other girl that's hanging with a penguin?
    When did that (‘ol) Zubat become Crobat?
    Whatever happened to Mankey, Fearow,
    (still beats Yu-Gi-Oh-ah)

    Goldeen, Dratini
    Way before Happiny
    There was Staryu and Ritchie
    And Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee
    M2M was so cool
    Now you feel like you’re a fool
    Cuz you’re still preoccupied
    With 19, 19, 1999

    Woo hoo hoo!

    Don’t have time, make them stop
    What’s up with that frog that keeps jabbing Brock?
    And when did Gary become a nice guy?
    Please make this…stop, stop,
    Ash: Stop!
    (tick tick tick)
    and bring back

    Dewgong, and Hypno
    Way before Monferno
    There was Raichu and Starmie
    And could they bring back Butterfree?
    Those two kids behind you
    They tell you to get a clue
    Cuz you’re still preoccupied
    With 1999

    Woo hoo hoo!

    (There was) Horsea, and Scyther
    Way before Seviper (1999)
    There was Psyduck and Goldeen
    And movies still on the big screen (1999) (Woohoo)
    Those two kids ignore you
    You guess you’ll have to make do (1999)
    But you’re still preoccupied
    With 19, 19, 1999

    LOL! I love this! This has to become a real song! (Hmm... for some reason, it sounds like a parody they would put on Saturday Night Live)

    I've actually got a friend on another board who's volunteered to record it. Don't know what his schedule is like though.

    You should record it! It's a really funny song! It would probably play on Z100. They play alot of funny parodies! This HAS to be on the radio!

    Sure is the truth, when it comes to the Pokemon anime I am stuck in 1999 for the most part and it seems like only yesterday that I only had to catch 150 to have a complete Pokedex but now there are 491? It is really starting to get crazy these days especially since if you want to have them all. Also I really liked that whole thing with Dawn and it would be true for the majority of people who are familiar with Pokemon as it existed back in the late 1990s. I guess me being stuck in that era is because of my favorite character being booted off the anime (avatar, user title, and signature gives it away) to this day I am upset with it still and perhaps always be. Over all, I would say this is a great parody and it fits the original song exceptionally well, almost as well as Weird Al's parodies.
    Are you a fan of Misty? if so please visit #misty4ever on irc.systemnet.info or through this gateway. http://raybound.com/misty/HeavyApplet.html
    I don't calculate stat values, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are. I just play the game normally. If you agree copy & paste this in your sig.

    I adore it!
    It reminds me of when I play Crystal and think "I should catch a [insert name of Pokémon that did not exist way back when]. Darn!"
    Now it's kinda crazy with the species count nearing 500.

    Hi, I'd like to transform you into a yeti.
    Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.

    You rock. The olden days were a lot better, I agree with you. I wish they would just plain reprint the early games, like they do with Metroid and Mario. And the anime seems to be just fan service with a budget now. What happened?
