Parody Who’ll Stop The Pain

For a few months now, I have been participating in Community Karaoke put on by the American Council of the Blind (ACB). To participate, you submit a recording of a song that they will then play on Saturday nights at their virtual event. Sometimes they will do a theme night and you choose songs that go with that.

This past Saturday, the theme was novelty songs or parodies. It was a lot of fun to hear what people came up with for that. Initially, I was not going to do it. I didn’t think I had enough time to find and record the right song. I have sung made up versions of songs before; as a kid my friends and I used to do that quite often, but never to show anyone else. I am one of those crazy music people who loves to find a song for everything and when there is not one, I use an existing song and change the words.

On a side note, I have been personally experiencing chronic pain with my eyes for quite some time. It got to the point last year where the pain was so bad that it became necessary to have surgery. Unfortunately, the pain is still a daily struggle and one day as I was talking to my fiance we started to wonder who will stop the pain. The song Who’ll Stop The Rain by Creedence Clearwater Revival came to mind. So, we sat down and within a few minutes had some lyrics for the verses. I recorded it and submitted it to ACB. I figured I would share it here as well. I may also add some other parodies I have done from the past.
