Dona Quixote takes off from my favorite musical. The rest of the musical happened later. (8/00)
On The Sloop NCC-74656 they just won't let Harry go home. (9/00)
Mark's Song provided another chance for me to rhyme 'sage' with 'phage'. Mark was the dull dude who sent Janeway a Dear John letter in "Hunters". If you listen closely to the lyrics of "Scarborough Fair", you'll notice the singer asks the impossible of his former true love. (9/00)
The Wreck of the Alternate Voyager was a challenge from my consulting physicist Debbie. She thought "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" by Gordon Lightfoot would make good filking material. You be the judge. (9/00)
Chakotay used to be "Fernando" by ABBA. The singer/narrator is B'Elanna Torres. (9/00)
The Delta Quadrant's Greatest Hits/Borgstory happened when Dr. Deb challenged me to filk something off America's Greatest Hits/History. So I filked the entire album. (12/00)
I Fought the Borg was like
shooting fish in a barrel: it's a little low-content ditty, echoing "I
Fought the Law" by Sonny Curtis. (1/01)
ASC Awards 2003 first place for MIS Filk/Poem/Drabble
When I was Borg is a sad song sung by Seven, after "Yesterday, When I was Young". (5/01)
ASC Awards 2001 second place for Voyager Poem or Filk.
Killing Me Softly is another sad song, sung by one fanfic writer to another. The accusation of theft should not be taken literally. The title of the original is the same as that of the filk. (6/01)
Janeway: The Musical! (Filk of La
Mancha) was a long time coming. It started small with my first
filk, the opening number. Now there are twenty. Familiarity with the
original musical "Man of La Mancha" is not absolutely necessary, but
it helps. (2/02)
ASC Awards 2002 first place for Voyager Filk or Poem.
Vote for the Roses, a filk of "Run for the Roses", was inspired by the start of voting for the Awesome Author Award. (3/02)
The Simple Joys of Captaincy, a filk of "The Simple Joys of Maidenhood" from Camelot. (4/02)
Accustomed to the Phage, a filk of "I've Grown Accustomed to
Her Face." I'd been meaning to filk that for a very long time - it was
one of those no-brainer filks, like "I Fought the Borg." (8/02)
ASC Awards 2002 second place for Voyager Filk or Poem.
The Sound of
Sickbay, a filk of "The Sound of Silence." I blame Liz. (12/02)
ASC Awards 2002 third place for Voyager Filk or Poem.
The Borg Queen, a filk of "The Boxer." Now I am a true filker. (1/03)
Where is the Fic?, a filk of "Where is the Love?" which asks the eternal question of Voyager fandom. This was written as a live chatfilk, with some significant later edits. (1/03)
Holodeck Hero, a filk of the Beatles' "Paperback Writer" starring Tom. (7/03)
Goodbye to VOY, a filk of The Carpenters' "Goodbye to Love" from a retiring muse. (7/03)
Killing Me Softly was altered slightly for posting to ASC. (1/04)
The Sound of Borgness is a full filk
musical of The Sound of Music. It came out a little sillier
than intended. (1/04)
ASC Awards 2003 third place for MIS Filk/Poem/Drabble
See the TOS page for more Trek filk.
To learn more about scifi folk music, visit filk.com, "where music is too important to be taken seriously."
I keep a page of the original lyrics to all my filky masterpieces.
For your own filking, be sure to consult the capitalization rules for song titles and one of the handy rhyming dictionaries at Lycos or Write Express.
