When your thumbs don't work like they used to before
And you stare at a blurry screen
Will it be worth it to finally shut the door
And close your eyes for some sleep?

No darling I will be leveling till I'm 70
Yeah baby, my Rogue is still weak at 23
And I'm thinking about how people build these mysterious mages
Fireballs with the flick of a hand
Well me, I always love the swing of my mace
And the sound of that armor clang

So honey now
Look at my collection of charms
They flicker like the pixelated stars
We'll use them when we get to the hardest part
I'm leveling up now
Because we fought hard right from the start

When my Rogues all done and my enemies are dead
And the chat rooms yell out my name
When the clans all sting from the wounds they bled
I know I will then start my Shaman

Cause honey this game could never grow old, it's like a time machine
Yeah baby there's always endeavor and treachery
I'm thinking about how people will love potions my Shaman makes
Maybe I should join a new clan
Well, I'll just keep on raising the stakes
Hoping for the drops to be grand

Hey baby now
Look at my collection of charms
They flicker like the pixelated stars
We'll use them when we get to the hardest part
I'm leveling up now
Because we fought hard right from the start

So baby now
Look at my collection of charms
They flicker like the pixelated stars
We'll use them when we get to the hardest part
I'm leveling up now
Because we fought hard right from the start
Yeah baby we fought hard right from the start
we fought hard right from the start

I obviously went with Leveling Up Now because I think Donald Trump is NOT something Al would do. Al doesn't write political songs. He's said that many times.

I said it in the chat thread but Al would not do a song that political nor would he likely touch a song that has been widely parodied already like Uptown Funk without a very solid concept.

I think ours was much more in line with Al's style and content, while still maintaining originality.

Leveling Up Now was clearly the better parody, as it was closer to what Al would do, which was the main point of the challenge. Grant chose the Uptown Funk parody because it "surprised" him more, but it was only surprising because it was not what Al would ever do. Al has never done any sort of political song and has shown no interest in starting. Whenever Al tries to do a song about a singular person it never turns out well for anyone anyway. He would also not parody Uptown Funk unless he had the best idea ever for it. Thinking Out Loud was the better option by a long shot. Grant made a huge mistake.

Uptown Funk, I think, is much too repetitive to be parodied. Maybe it would fit in a polka medley, because I don't think there's as much material to be dealt with.

I dunno, I REALLY like CNR...

Also, Uptown Funk melody is perfect. It's similar to Tacky, it's upbeat and lively! It's really fun!

Yeah, and Uptown Funk has been parodied a million times on youtube already. Perform This Way and Achy Breaky Song were not well received when they came out.

You're saying Weird Al fans didn't like PTW and ABH?
