Book and Music Parodies

Since I love music and also books and reading, these videos are right up my alley.
The first video “If You Love to Read” is based on the music of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.”
The second video “Read It Maybe” is based on the music of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”
Both videos are from the New York State Reading Association.
Lyrics for both videos are below each video.

IF YOU LOVE TO READ

LYRICS:

If You Love to Read (based on the music “Rolling in the Deep”)

There’s a story waiting to be told
Waiting for all of us, whether we’re young or old
The story is in there if you take a look
Go ‘head and and open up, the pages of a book
If you ask me, I will read with you
Don’t underestimate the things that books can do
There’s a story waiting to be told
Waiting for all of us, whether we’re young or old

The stories inside can open your mind
They’ve got me wishing now that I could read them all
The stories inside can take you for a ride
I can’t help feeling

That you can have it all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
If you love to read
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
The stories there, just turn the page
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
You can find it, in a book
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

Books they have a story they will tell
Comedy, comic, romance, horror,
and poetry as well

When I’m feeling like there’s no place for me
I know I’ll always feel at home
in a library

(I really wish you, you would read to me)
The stories inside can open your mind
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
They’ve got me wishing now that I could read them all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
The stories inside can take you for a ride
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
I can’t help feeling that

You can have it all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
If you love to read
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
The stories there, just turn the page
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
You can find it, in a book
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
You can have it all
If you love to read
The stories there, just turn the page
You can find it, in a book

Throw yourself into every open book (woah)
There’s something for everyone if you take a look (woah)
Turn the pages, and then before you know (woah)
Books will pay you back in kind just watch your knowledge grow

(I really wish you, you would read to me)
You can have it all
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
You can have it all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
It all, it all, it all
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

You can have it all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
If you love to read
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
The stories there, just turn the page
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
You can find it, in a book
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

You can have it all
(I really wish you, you would read to me)
If you love to read
(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)
The stories there, just turn the page
(I really wish you, you would read to me)

(Pages gonna turn, when you love to read)

You’ll find it
You’ll find it
You’ll find it
You’ll find it in a book.

READ IT MAYBE

LYRICS:

READ IT MAYBE (a Call me Maybe Parody)

I got a library card
it kinda caught me off guard
it really wasn’t that hard
and now I’m on my way

Then this one book seemed to shout
Come on and check me out
I wonder what it’s about
and now I’m on my way

Dog-earred pages turning
Cur-i-os-it-y is burning
Checking out and then returning
Always reading always learning!

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here’s a book now, so read it maybe
I know you’ll like it, so don’t be lazy
Just take this book now, and read it maybe

Hey I just met you, and this is crazy
But here’s a book now, so read it maybe
and all the other books they can’t escape me
but here’s a book now, so read it maybe

Just come inside for a look
and when you find that right book
you’ll be on the hook
And then your on your way

It’s all here on the shelf
It’s Informational wealth
You can find it yourself
And then you’re on your way

Dog-earred pages turning
Cur-i-os-it-y is burning
Checking out and then returning
Always reading always learning!

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here’s a book now, so read it maybe
I know you’ll like it, so don’t be lazy
Just take this book now, and read it maybe

Hey I just met you, and this is crazy
But here’s a book now, so read it maybe
and all the other books they can’t escape me
but here’s a book now, so read it maybe

Before books came into my life I was just so bored
Just really so bored…yes I was so so bored
Before books came into my life I was just so bored
right out of my gourd. yeah I was so, so bored

I know you’ll like it, so don’t be lazy
Just take this book now, and read it maybe

Hey I just met you, and this is crazy
But here’s a book now, so read it maybe
and all the other books they can’t escape me
but here’s a book now, so read it maybe

Before books came into my life I was so bored
Just really so bored… I was so so bored
Before books came into my life and I was so bored
yeah I was so bored

So read it, maybe

I thought I would continue with a few fun posts for the summer…that still mention books and libraries.

I saw this picture this morning. Who would have thought that even books inspire tattoos?

Take a look at this article from Publishers Week earlier this year about The 5 Books That Inspire the Most Tattoos.

Or look at this site of Literary Tattoos.

A tattoo for me? Never! But it’s fun to read about.

The Green County Public Library in Ohio has created a video mashup of library scenes from old tv and movie clips.
I paid close attention to see if one of my favorite movies, The Breakfast Club, was included and it was.
I recall when The Breakfast Club first came to the theaters, a school district library supervisor I knew was appalled at several of the scenes. In the movie, students serving Saturday detention in the library switch cards in the card catalog (remember those) and rip out pages from a book. It should have made me cringe since I could remember typing hundreds of cards in my college cataloging class. But I still thought it was funny.

Enjoy this clever video!
