Hilarious, I love it. I hate the original, but that was a tour de force.

I made it through about a minute. Sorry, but there's just no rescuing a colossal piece of shit like that song.

I suppose next they did something by Bon Jovi...

I like how he stays in the beat. The guy from this one didn't do that (but he did have an Atari 800XL):

I thought it was an appropriate parody ... I'm pretty sure you like staying alive just as much ...

I am however left wondering where I went wrong, as one of my teenage sons actually likes Eye Of The Tiger ... something to do with some ridiculous parody movie ... help ...

Stayin' alive is a class tune.
Eye of the tiger is just embarrassing.

I have little problems with Eye Of The Tiger. Not the best of songs, the chorus and singer's voice could've been better, but the way you lot trash it, it seems like none of you guys is familiar with Dutch folk.

That is a piece of cake, I'd like to see some smart ass to program a printer to play The Black Page...

Does anyone know how this actually works? It's cool, but I'm a little confused.
