Bonus challenges are more or less weekly mini contests where you have the chance to win big points for KOTF. This challenge is a tricky one so it goes for a whole week (now through Monday).

Thanks to Dr. Horrible and Beauty & the Beast I'm in a musical mood so here's your challenge. It's Pebble Version The Musical!!! Write the lyrics to a song that would fit in the musical. Ideally it should be a character's theme (i.e. Xain singing about how awesome he is) or a song for a key event in the comics (i.e. a song for Brendan, May, Maxie, and Roxie to sing while fighting). No need to make a tune though you're free to do so or write your song to the tune of some pre-existing song. Of you can forget the music entirely and just do lyrics. It's up to you. Length is up to you as well. It can be short or long.

You can enter as many songs as you want and may even win multiple prizes if you enter multiple songs that I really like. This challenge is a tricky one so it goes for a whole week (now through Monday). Post you entries in this thread. Winners will be chosen based on how well they'd fit in a PV musical and how much I like them.
First Prize: 30 points
Second Prize: 20 points
Third Prize: 10 points

My desire to enter hundreds of possibly terrible songs is just barely offset by my need to sleep. This will be fun.

Oh, also, question. Can we just post our changed lyrics and/or our possibly composed music, or should we perform it? Or is it up to us?

Hmmm sounds interesting and fun, maybe I'll be able to come up with something.

I guess I'll be going before you guys then, huh? My entry can be found on my siggy site.

So, uh... I really don't know what happened to my voice through the recording process... I've never really done this before, and the result somehow strikes me as... prepubescent? I sound like I'm friggin' 12 again. And I was trying to be all tough and cool, too...

Anyways, if you're not familiar with Dr. Horrible, follow the link first. It isn't as funny if you haven't heard that song before.

Must do... must do. It must be done by me. Yes. I will do this, I won't sleep until I got it figured out.

:ROFL: I admit a deeper voice would be good but that is utterly awesome. I was laughing the whole time. Could you send me a MP3 (or WMA or whatever) via e-mail? Actually, that goes for everyone who actually records something for this challenge. Maybe when I have some more free time I'll actually make a PV Musical flash movie or something...

OKAY HERE IT IS MY SABER KNIGHT ORIGINAL!

Grass Kid's Lament

I talk a lot at the beginning. Not sure what I was thinking. Huh. Hopefully the sound of my voice doesn't make you pass out.

I'm not sure if it's my laptop's crappy speakers or the video itself, but there's some weird crackling. OH WELL.

Oh, and I apologize for missing the last note. Oops. Why did I decide to add that, again?

Lyrics:

No! Stop!
You can’t go in there!
There are wild pokemon in the tall grass!

I tell them to beware, but they all pass me by
Then they never come back, and I’ll tell you why
There are terrors out there like none that you’ve seen
Terrors in that grass so tall and green!

Bewaaaaare the grass…
Bewaaaaare the grass…
No one believes me!
They think I’m crazy
Well, they’ll be sorry
So,
Bewaaaaare the grass…
Bewaaaaare the grass…
I warn you all!
You’ll surely fall
Should you pass my wall!

No matter what I say, they don’t understand
They continue on and become lost in the land
But I won’t give up! No, I won’t give in!
Until my dying day I’ll continue to siiing—

Bewaaaaare the grass…
Bewaaaaare the grass…
No one believes me!
They think I’m crazy
Well, they’ll be sorry
So,
Bewaaaaare the grass…
Bewaaaaare the grass…
I warn you all!
You’ll surely fall
Should you pass my wall!

Bewaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaare theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee grass!

And beware the Torchic too.


PS SILVER YOUR SONG IS AMAZING

Nice, a fully original song.

You know, I had originally considered doing a song about The Grass Kid... I was going to make it a parody of "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera - "Music of the Grass". I had the idea, then went to sleep, and had a dream about The Grass Kid trying to kill me... and then I decided that crossing him with Phantom was a bad, bad idea that should never happen.

Ta-da! My song! I may write another soon, though.

May's Anthem

Come along, Brendan
We'll journey far
Come along, Brendan
We'll find out who we are
Come along, Brendan
Take my hand
Come along, Brendan
Across the land!

To throw a Pokeball
The proper way
To catch them all
Is how we play

Oh Brendan if you follow me
We'll make the most of our journey

Come along, Brendan
There isn't time
Come along, Brendan
Don't get left behind
Come along, Brendan
You better catch up
Come along, Brendan
You better never give up!

To beat Cali and Xain
At their own game
It'll be a pain
As so you claim

Oh Brendan if you give me a chance
We'll take our skills into a new advance

Into the sea and the grass
All through the afternoon
Just found a Whiscash
(I choose you, Zigzagoon!)

Come along, Brendan
We'll journey far
Come along, Brendan
We'll find out who we are
Come along, Brendan
Take my hand
Come along, Brendan
Across the land!

Song #2 by moi

Kudos to Silver and Saber, btw, for the recordings! It's unfortunate I can't get my camera to work, so...


Good Ol' Norman

Oooooh...

Sitting in Petalburg looking cool
Mhm, mhm
Looking important is what I do
Mhm, mhm

They call me Norman
The normal man
Who sits in his gym
And sees trainers come in

Mhm, mhm, mhm

Who said I have a boy named Brandon?
Mhm, mhm
Wait hold on, do I have a son?
Mhm, mhm

Standing here all day
What do I gotta say?
Battling trainers
Who get in my way.

Mhm, mhm, mhm

All this work is making me dizzy
Mhm, mhm
Can't talk now 'cause I'm too busy
Mhm, mhm

Doing my job
Don't call me a snob
Ain't doing it for the pay
Just acting my way

Mhm, mhm, mhm
