Filk Friday

This week’s featured filk is a Club Jade classic, one of our earliest and most memorable filks, leaving CJers singing it to themselves for months after DC Con in 1998. The video for Madonna’s 1984 hit “Material Girl” was itself a tribute/satire, so it’s only fitting that it be filked in turn, and that Imperial Girl, written by Jennifer Quail (aka TIE Pilot), be sung from the point of view of the most materialistic members of the Star Wars galaxy.

In other novelty music news, “Weird” Al Yankovic‘s new album Straight Outta Lynwood is only a month away, due for release on September 26. Never one to miss out a comic opportunity, he’s made his first single “Don’t Download This Song” available for, well, download here.

  1. Written on the bus on the way to DC, my first (and so far only decent) filk. Scared the living daylights out of me when people started singing along….

  2. Worse than a Friday is having it stuck in your head on a Monday!

    Must not get busy on a Friday, again!
