My Favorite Guys

Many years ago, when I posted more actively on fanfiction.net, I made a tradition of posting a new Rurouni Kenshin-related song “parody” along with every chapter or story I put up. Most of them were very stupid, but there were a couple of diamonds in that rough (if I do say so myself) — and one such was My Favorite Guys. Years later it occurred to me that it wouldn’t be too difficult to dig up those old lyrics and make a music video out of them, so I did. In other words, yes, that is me you hear singing, and I apologize profusely for it.

The instrumentation comes from a karaoke CD called Just Tracks: Sing The Hits Of Rodgers and Hammerstein. It’s really a dreadful track; it has all this background noise like whoever made it recorded it off of something else by putting an actual microphone up against the speaker it was playing out of. I would definitely not recommend buying this CD, or probably anything bearing a similar title.

Many thanks go out to my mother (not that she sees this stuff) for her sound-related assistance. She couldn’t make me or the awful karaoke track sound any better, but without her I couldn’t have recorded this thing at all. She is awesome.

Lastly, the lyrics:

Psychos with glasses and kanji-marked brawlers…
Weapon collectors and gay sickle-haulers…
Deadpans who never show any surprise…
These are a few of my favorite guys.

Paisley bandannas and big crimson collars…
Dark puppet-masters and kenjutsu scholars…
Warriors who fight with their bangs in their eyes…
These are a few of my favorite guys.

Red-haired assassins and wolves that are taller…
Prodigal smilers and cruel girlfriend-maulers…
Masters of moves in just one or two tries…
These are a few of my favorite guys.

When the real world’s jerks and losers start to make me mad,
I simply remember my favorite guys,
And then I don’t feel so bad.

  1. I’m not sure why I missed this when you posted it, but I’m glad I watched it now. It was very cute! The lyrics are great. I’ll have to take the advice and remember MY favorite guys when things get me down. Oh wait, I already do. *has 1×2 on the brain at all times*

    Btw, you have a nice singing voice.

    1. I know you have 1×2 on the brain at all times :D I am glad I have finished this particular video, because now I can make videos about them and that will satisfy the part of my brain that they’re coming to dominate.

      I’m glad you liked it! And I’m glad you could tolerate my singing XD Thanks so much!
