The Xena Song Parody Page
What is a Xena Song Parody (XSP)?
A Xena Song Parody (XSP, pronounced "zisp") is a song whose lyrics have been replaced with Xena-related lyrics. If you are familiar with filk, this concept should be clear to you. You can replace every word of the song, or you can try to stick with the original song's meaning as much as possible. The only requirement is that your new lyrics fit the melody.
Structure of this website
On a couple of songs you will see the original lyrics in a table alongside the parody lyrics. This is because the parodist sent me both. I thought about including original lyrics in every song but decided it would be waaaaaaaaaaay too much work for me.
- There are currently sixty-nine songs on this site. You can view the listings of songs sorted by the original artist, sorted by the parodist, or sorted by title.
- Included with each song is a mailto link to the parodist (except where s/he has requested otherwise). Just click on the parodist's name to send him or her a comment! No nasty comments, please.
- Included on most of the songs' individual pages is a link to a page about the original artist. In most cases, I did a search on Yahoo and chose the page that seemed like the artist's "official" page. If the official page was unclear, I chose one that looked good. For some artists, I couldn't find any pages. If you know of a page I should be linking to, please email me.
Send Me Your XSPs!
If you have written a XSP and would like it to be included on this page,
please email it to me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. If possible, please include the full title and
composer's name for the original song.
