We are the Champions, Queen.

Postby CCJ » Fri Jul 31, 2015 8:27 pm

Hi guys!, I cant find this song
From Bundyology: 0924 We Are the Champions - Queen [US premiere on May 4, 1995, only; reruns and non-US versions feature a sound-alike song]
The episode is "Shoeless Al" at 2:18. It actually doesn't sound like queen, just similar, and I don't know if google is avoiding me but the thing is I can't find this version of the song and I'm not sure it be Queen, any idea/help? Thank you!

Some versions of the episode have a soundalike/replacement for both We Are The Champions and We Will Rock You. I don't know these replacement songs by name/artist, they could've be done by the show's music man, Jonathan Wolff.

Oh, should be that, I was trying to find all the music but I guess this one is gonna be impossible. Just that little part. Thank you anyway.

EDIT: I was checking that episode again, and I noticed the spanish track had that replacement, but the english track had the original song, I'm gonna share those two little parts so all you can compare them.

Thanks. Let me know if you find the replacement tracks for "Black or White" (Bleen ep) or Tainted Love (Enemies) (both in season 10) or any others...

Black or white is the same version without voice in both tracks, and tainted love is the spoof version in both tracks too. I think there are not replacements songs in those episodes.

From Bundyology:

Spoofs of Songs

0709 We Are the World by USA for Africa
1005 Black or White by Michael Jackson
1024 Tainted Love by Soft Cell


They didn't say anything about another version or something.
What songs are you listening in those episodes? The original songs or "The spoofs"?
If I find another one I'll be glad to tell you!

Is it possible to buy a Spanish language version that will run on American DVD players? I’ve often thought it might help me with my Spanish.

The DVD Region in Europe is different, so you can't play DVDs from Europe on American DVD players, but you can play it on your PC, also, I have MWC uploaded with both languages, (Spanish/English) dvdrip quality, if you are still interested I could give you links by private message.

Yes - the spoof songs.
I tend to think of them more as cheaper alternatives rather than proper 'spoofs', like how "We Are the Old" is clearly a spoof.
Anyway - thanks!

Thanks!

Lyrics for this one (the replacement)

We came to win, let's rock
We came to win, let's rock
This is the night for what you're gonna fight for
all of your life you've waited so long for
So now it's my turn to show what I got
I'm giving it all and baby that's a lot, 'cause
we came to win, let's rock!
we came to win, let's rock
we came to win, let's rock


Original We Will Rock You lyrics:

Buddy you're a boy make a big noise
Playin' in the street gonna be a big man some day
You got mud on yo' face
You big disgrace
Kickin' your can all over the place
Singin'

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

Buddy you're a young man hard man
Shouting in the street gonna take on the world some day
You got blood on your face
You big disgrace
Wavin' your banner all over the place

We will we will rock you
Sing it
We will we will rock you

Buddy you're an old man poor man
Pleadin' with your eyes gonna make
You some peace some day
You got mud on your face
Big disgrace
Somebody better put you back into your place

We will we will rock you
Sing it
We will we will rock you
Everybody
We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you
All right

Hi!
I am from Hungary. In the hungarian version they replaced the song too. I searched the original episode on Youtube. There is Queen. My question is: why?? Why did they replace the song?

They probably didn’t want to pay royalties.
