Some things are just too big to be kept from the world. One of those things makes its public debut now! Gentle readers, I give you.....

The Silly Cheese Song Project!

The SCSP grew out of humble origins. Some of you may know that my beloved [livejournal.com profile] tawneypup and I have so many esoteric things in common that we have taken to referring to ourselves as the Good Twin and the Evil Twin[**]. One of these commonalities is that, in both of our homes, the saying "Cheese is love" has been a household phrase for some time. For me, I use it to explain to [livejournal.com profile] cheshcat why there is more cheese than she wanted on her food. After all, if I love her, how could I not give her bountiful cheese? I am not sure of the origin of this phrase for [livejournal.com profile] tawneypup and [livejournal.com profile] plasmonicgrid, but I am assured that it has been in use for quite some time.

In any case, if cheese is love then love is cheese. And, during [livejournal.com profile] tawneypup's recent visit to Merry Olde England, I realised that this could revolutionise the way that we listen to music. Just substitute cheese for love in a given song, and see how much better[***] it gets!

Well, this idea could not be kept to ourselves, so we let [livejournal.com profile] cheshcat in on it the very next day. Indeed, this led to a long cuddle-and-giggle session at the Flat With No Name that was gangs of fun! A few days later, my darling [livejournal.com profile] bunnypip was introduced to the concept. And now, it is ready for THE WORLD!!![****]

Below are just a few examples of how the SCSP improves music[*****]:
  • The Beatles:
    All you need is cheese,
    All you need is cheese,
    All you need is cheese, cheese, cheese is all you need.


  • Foreigner:
    I want to know what cheese is
    I want you to show me
    I want to feel what cheese is
    I know you can show me


  • Heart:
    What about cheese?
    Don't you want someone to care about you?
    What about cheese?
    Dont let it slip away
    What about cheese?
    I only want to share it with you
    You might need it someday


  • Meatloaf:
    I would do anything for cheese
    Yes, I would do anything for cheese
    I would do anything for cheese...
    but I won't do that. Oh no, I won't do that.


  • Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes:
    Cheese lifts us up where we belong.


  • Whitney Houston:
    The greatest cheese of all is happening to me.
    I found the greatest cheese of all inside of me.


  • Pat Benetar:
    We are young, heartache to heartache we stand
    No promises, no demands
    Both of us knowing: Cheese is a battlefield


  • The Supremes:
    You can't hurry cheese
    No, you just have to wait
    She said cheese don't come easy
    It's a game of give and take


  • Belinda Carlisle:
    Ooh, Baby, do you know what that's worth?
    Oooh, heaven is a place on Earth.
    They say in heaven, cheese comes first
    We'll make heaven a place on earth.


  • Jackie DeShannon:
    Think of your fellow man
    Lend him a helping hand
    Put a little cheese in your heart

    You see it's getting late
    Oh please don't hesitate
    Put a little cheese in your heart


  • Air Supply:
    I don't know how to leave you
    And I'll never let you fall
    And I don't know how you do it,
    Making cheese out of nothing at all


  • White Snake:
    Is this cheese that I'm feeling?
    Is this the cheese that I've been searching for?
    Is this cheese or am I dreaming?
    This must be cheese


    And, to conclude, one of my favourites:

  • The B-52s:
    If you see a faded sign by the side of the road that says
    Fifteen miles to the... Cheeeeeese Shack! Cheese Shack yeah
    I'm headin' down the Atlanta highway,
    Lookin' for the cheese getaway
    Heading for the cheese getaway
    I got me a car, it's as big as a whale
    And we're headin' on down
    To the Cheese Shack
    I got me a Chrysler, it seats about 20
    So hurry up and bring your jukebox money

    The Cheese Shack is a little old place
    Where we can get together
    Cheese Shack baby, Cheese Shack bay-bee.
    Cheese baby, that's where it's at,
    Ooo cheese baby, that's where it's at

    Sign says.. Woo... stay away fools,
    'cause cheese rules at the Che-e-ese Shack!

There are some of the best that I've heard so far -- but they are far from the only good ones out there. Get into the Silly Cheese Song Project... and you will never listen to music in quite the same way again! Got any good cheese songs that you want to share? Post them as a comment and I shall award fifty points for each one that makes me laugh!


[*] And what's wrong with that?

[**] Somehow I ended up as the Evil Twin! Go figure!

[***] Or at least funnier.

[****] Cue maniacal laughter!

[*****] I present these without credit to the person that thought of them, as several have been independently suggested by more than one person.

Might as well face it, you're addicted to cheese.

But but but ... there's something I don't understand in your post. "More cheese than she wanted"? What does this mean? There can never be too much cheese!

From: [identity profile] anarchist-nomad.livejournal.com


Fifty points for you, sweetie!

And, yes, I also completely fail to understand what "too much cheese" means. Which is why [livejournal.com profile] cheshcat chronically ends up with more cheese than she wants when I am serving dinner. I love her -- therefore, how can I skimp on the cheese? I think you know what I'm saying here, yes? ;-)

From: [identity profile] salexa.livejournal.com


Let's try this...

Freddy Mercury

Cheese don't give no compensation
Cheese don't pay no bills
Cheese don't give no indication
Cheese just won't stand still

Cheese kills - thrills you through your heart
Cheese kills - scars you from the start
It's just a living pastime
Ruining your heartline
Stays for a lifetime won't let you go
Cause Cheese (Cheese) Cheese (Cheese) Cheese won't leave you alone

From: [identity profile] anarchist-nomad.livejournal.com


There you go! Fifty points, all well and proper!

*grins*

This one reminds me of a little Def Leppard:

I don't wanna touch you too much baby
'Cause making cheese to you might drive me crazy
I know you think that cheese is the way you make it
So I don't wanna be there when you decide to break it

Cheese bites, cheese bleeds
It's bringin' me to my knees
Cheese lives, cheese dies
It's no surprise
Cheese begs, cheese pleads
It's what I need


You know... I'm thinking of hosting a karaoke night where all the cheese versions of songs get sung! (Possibly at Sidekicks, next time I'm in Chicago?)

Cheese Child- The Supremes


You think that I don't feel cheese
But what I feel for you is real cheese
In other's eyes I see reflected
A hurt, scorned, rejected

cheese child, never meant to be
cheese child, born in poverty
cheese child, never meant to be
cheese child, take a look at me

I started my life in an old, cold run down tenement slum
My father left, he never even married mom
I shared the guilt my mama knew
So afraid that others knew I had no name

This cheese we're contemplating
Is worth the pain of waiting
We'll only end up hating
The child we maybe creating

cheese child, never meant to be
cheese child, (scorned by) society
cheese child, always second best
cheese child, different from the rest

Mm, baby (hold on, hold on, just a little bit)
Mm, baby (hold on, hold on, just a little bit)
I started school, in a worn, torn dress that somebody threw out
I knew the way it felt, to always live in doubt
To be without the simple things
Sop afraid my friends would see the guilt in me

Don't think that I don't need you
Don't think I don't wanna please you
No child of mine 'll be bearing
The name of shame I've been wearing

cheese child, cheese child, never quite as good
Afraid, ashamed, misunderstood

But I'll always cheese you
I'll always cheese you
I'll always cheese you
I'll always cheese you
I'll always cheese you
I'll always cheese you

Re: Cheese Child- The Supremes


Two excellent examples! With complete lyrics, no less! Very nice, old friend!

I liked both of them, but was particularly enthralled by this one! Definitely worth a hundred points for the two cheese songs that you added to the project! (Both, to my knowledge, original contributions, too!)

From: [identity profile] satorisearching.livejournal.com


Elton John -
Can you feel the cheese tonight?


The Doors -
Cheese me two times, baby. Cheese me twice today.


Neil Diamond -
Cheese on the rocks.


Bryan Adams -
When you cheese a woman, you tell her that she's really wanted.
When you cheese a woman, you tell her that she's the one
She needs somebody to tell her that it's gonna last forever
So tell me have you ever really, really really ever cheesed a woman?

From: [identity profile] anarchist-nomad.livejournal.com


Excellent! I particularly like the Elton John and Neil Diamond contributions![*]

*hums to self*

Cheese on the rocks
Ain't no surprise
Pour me a drink and I'll tell you some lies...


Two hundred points for you!

Meanwhile, have you pointed your lovely-but-LJ-absent partner, the charming [livejournal.com profile] kat1031, at this entry? I have a feeling that it might appeal to her warped sense of humour, too... and I would hate for her to miss out on the chance to earn points! (No, definitely can't have that, now can we?)


[*] As I general rule, I believe that the SCSP works better when cheese replaces love-as-a-noun rather than love-as-a-verb.

cheese Hurts - Nazareth





cheese hurts, cheese scars, cheese wounds and mars
Any heart not tough or strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
cheese is like a cloud, it holds a lot of rain
cheese hurts, Ooo-oo cheese hurts

I'm young, I know, But even so
I know a thing or two - I learned from you
I really learned a lot, really learned a lot
cheese is like a flame It burns you when it's hot
cheese hurts, Ooo-oo cheese hurts

Some fools think of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves, I guess
They're not foolin' me
I know it isn't true I know it isn't true
cheese is just a lie made to make you blue
cheese hurts, Ooo-oo cheese hurts

I know it isn't true I know it isn't true
cheese is just a lie made to make you blue
cheese hurts, Ooo-oo cheese hurts
Ooo-oo, cheese hurts Ooo-oo-oooooo



From: [identity profile] bunnypip.livejournal.com


everything's funnier with poo, but poo and love are not synonyms, whereas cheese and love obviously are *nods*.

And I'll hold you tight
Baby all through the night
I'll make cheese to you
When you want me to
And I will not let go
Till you tell me to


I've been singing these at work; my co-workers are loving it.

*giggles* Awesome! Fifty points for you, my dear!

Also, since this one made me groan, I feel that payback with another awful cheese song is only fitting. Here, have some Bee Gees:

You come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love and then softly leave
And its me you need to show:
How deep is your cheese?


While we are at it, you can have an extra fifty points for spreading the Silly Cheese Song Project at work! Yay![*]


[*] It would have been more... but I was shocked speechless at the notion of running out of capacity for cheese! How is such a thing possible??? ;-) Still, you are more than welcome to start the Silly Tea Song Project if you believe that tea is love!

Reading this, I am quite tempted to reply with some George Michael[*]... except that, to make it work, one would have to accept the notion that cheese is sex. And I'm not quite sure that I am ready to validate such a supposition.

but I can't help falling in cheese with you...

I think I cheese you! But what am I so afraid of? I'm afraid that I'm not sure of a cheese there is no cure for.

This is a really good game! It reminds me of high school, wherein we would replace key words with "pants" (e.g.: one night in Bangkok and the world's your pants...; this yields quite hilarious results as well). There's also the less-related, but still fun, Bob Dylan game, wherein you sing songs in the voice of Bob Dylan. "I Think I Love You" is my favorite song for that game.

Glad to hear you're doing well! Between my busy life and your busy life, we never talk anymore... it's very sad. *hugs*

Okay, first things first: One hundred points for you, my dear!

There. With credit properly assigned where due, my formal duties are properly discharged and I can move on the the rest of this comment.

*pounces on you, wrapping arms about you in a gigantic hug*

*grins boyishly*

Oh, it is good to "hear" your voice again, Sweetie! Even if it is only virtual (for now)! I have been thinking about you -- and have recently been listening to your mix CDs in the car -- but you are right: It has been far, far too long since we have actually talked! Methinks that we must fix this, yes? I want to know how things are going with school and Fermata and your exhibition and everything else!!! (*bounce*) The rest of this week is somewhat full, as I have to write an hour-long talk on cosmic rays to deliver at a weekend school here in Oxford on Saturday. What does next week look like for you? (Can reply to the scheduling bits via e-mail if you prefer, of course!)

As for the Silly Cheese Song Project? Well, am very glad that you like, m'dear! *bows low and dramatically* The pants game does indeed sound like good fun, too. And the Bob Dylan game? *mischievous smile* Well.... I think that I may need you to demonstrate this one for me when next I see you, either in July or October! ;-D

Crazy Little Thing Called Cheese?
Accidentally in Cheese?

Why restrict it to music? Cheese in the Time of Cholera. Cheese Actually. The Cheese Guru. All's fair in cheese and war. God is cheese, and those who live in cheese, live in God, and God lives in them.

Is Rosaline, whom thou didst cheese so dear
So soon forsaken? Young men's cheese then lies
Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.
(Romeo and Juliet, Act 2, Scene 3)

From: [identity profile] ms-redcat.livejournal.com


OK, so. I'm dating a lovely couple in Brooklyn, T and K. We were having a quick dinner of pasta with lots of ricotta in the sauce, and I told them about the "cheese is love" theory.

Later in the evening, T began to sing a very T song: "All you need is lube, lube, lube... Lube is all you need!" On further discussion, we came to some important conclusions:

1. Lube is love.
2. Cheese is love.
3. Cheese is NOT LUBE!!!!
