Again, so clever and inspired. Wonderful job. Totally sums up the whole show as well as work with the song.
Author's Response: I have to concede, this is as much inspired by Weird Al Yankovic's 'Spam' as it was by REM's original.

Oh my God. Hilarious and it so worked so well. I can picture the crew doing the Grease Lightning Dance and everything. That was bloody brilliant. terrific choice of material and then you got it all to work. Go Delta Flyer indeed. Smart. Very smart and very musical and very funny. Impressive. And then to top it all Neelix sings Sandy/Kessie. Bloody brilliant. Inspired is what it is.
Author's Response: I may have mixed up my response for this with the one for the first piece. But I thank you nevertheless. Also, Robbie MacNeil is easy to imagine as subbing for Travolta or Jeff Conaway.

I want to be Jimmy's Girl! Classic.
Author's Response: Thanks, although I fear younger readers may have to YouTube for the original song and really get the tempo. Also--will she follow him? :)

Oh wow. Brill. Not very the way one likes to remember the great battle but very well done. Qapla Ke!
Author's Response: The original song is a guilty pleasure. I can't see Worf really belting it out--but I can see Michael Dorn singing it.

Oh dear. Grease is the word! Amazing the things you come up with. And it must take so much time. have you a time machine?
Author's Response: Some of these are almost ten years old. I had a site once, but it's largely gone now, and I've been moving to save what I can while I can still google the remnants. It also affords me a chance for clean-up and coherence. Given Tom's love of classic cars, this one just jumped to mind.
