    Alright gents and lassies, I have had the idea to create a Middle Earth inspired karaoke event! Ultimately, this means changing the lyrics to popular songs to include LotR references or themes. I do not have an idea of when this event will occur, most likely a Friday or Saturday. However, I need your help!

    I would like your suggestion for songs that I and others can change into LotR themes. Example: Hotline Bling, Don't Stop Believing. Please share your suggestions down below, and if you feel so inclined make your own parody and share it here. Of any and all community submitted parodies, I will put them into a vote, and will be included! Also, I will need someone to stream the background tracks for us to sing over in teamspeak, so if anyone would like to volunteer that would be awesome! If you are interested, please let it be known so we (I) can get some ideas flowing!

    For song suggestions, use this prompt [Song Name - Artist]

    Sounds ghastly o_O, yet at the same time it makes me wish so very much that my mic wasn't broken, so I could take part in the singing :(...
    Well, should at least be fun to listen to! :)

    I love this idea and I'm totally up for helping.
    Man, so many ideas for this one popped into my head right away. I'll try to get a rough draft of revised lyrics up soon...

    Hey, so I know this is a repost of myself from last July, in the music thread, but I would love to hear this sung by people:

    Let's walk in style, let's walk for a while
    Magic carpet can wait, we're only passing the time
    Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
    Are you gonna ob us or not?

    Give us a job or give us the freebuild
    Don't tell the new guy what happens with slash-kill
    Ignore the warp list, Rivendell's a short trip
    Ranking up's for the sad men

    Can you imagine when Rohan is done
    Turn our endless bonemeal into the sun
    Covering deserts, or grassing the plains
    The server's led by the, the mad men

    Forever droog, I want to be forever droog
    Do you really want to dig forever, forever and ever?
    Forever droog, I want to be forever droog
    Do you really want to dig forever? Forever droog

    Some are the build staff, some are the guides
    Some are the officers and some are the kings
    Sooner or later, they all will be gone
    Why don't they stay droog?

    It's so hard to feel alone like old members
    I don't want a revamp like Bree built by players
    Climb the Endless Stairs in Moria
    And the Stairs are forever

    So many adventurers are joining today
    So many survivals that we cannot play
    So many people who used to be blue
    We're with them too

    Forever droog, I want to be forever droog
    Do you really want to dig forever, forever and ever?
    Forever droog, I want to be forever droog
    Do you really want to dig forever, forever and ever?

    Forever droog, I want to be forever droog
    Do you really want to dig forever?
    I'm assuming these can be mcme-themed parodies, not just lotr.

    So I'm thinking of having the event mid- February. Unless there is a conflict, that way people have time to make and submit their suggestions. Check back for more announcements soon.

    I just realised the title of the thread contains the word "First". I can assure you this is far from the first Karaoke.
