Harry Potter Filks, submitted by megapsyk. People seem to really enjoy Harry Potter. I'm not exactly sure why, but CNN once told me that "Pottermania is taking the world by storm," therefore putting it in the same category as saying the word "like" a lot or getting AIDS. "Harry Potter Filks" is a website containing over 1800 musical parodies based off Harry Potter crap. You read that correctly: OVER 1800 MUSICAL PARODIES BASED OFF HARRY POTTER CRAP. Now 18 parodies I could understand, and 180 parodies might be acceptable in some weird, Internet way... but 1800? Seriously, 1800? Nobody's going to read 1800 parodies, much less write them.

We Didn't Start The Story A filk by Tracy Hunt to the tune of We Didn't Start the Fire by Billy Joel

Vernon Dursley, fateful day, owls flying, baby stays
Albus sighs, Hagrid cries, Harry is so young.

Dudley's birthday, at the zoo, I think Arabella knew,
Harry went, Piers too, we meet a Parseltongue.

"Harry Hunting", Dudley's mates, post's in, Vernon waits
See's what's come, goes berserk, the Dursley's run away.

Harry's birthday, on the rock, Hagrid arrives, Vernon's shocked
Pink umbrella, Dudley's tail, Harry's on his way.

I always hypothesized that the only thing better than Harry Potter would be Harry Potter to the tune of a Billy Joel song. I'm pleased to say that I was 100% correct.
