TMBW Theme Song/Archive

From This Might Be A Wiki


  • The song you choose must be a TMBG song. (obviously)
  • The new lyrics must have to do with this wiki or wikis in general.
    • For a huge list of examples, see the Taglines page. Here are just a few:
    • The Editing Museum, is open to the public
    • Wiki-squisite Dead GUI, rotating text on a web page...
    • Put your cursor over the edit tab
  • You must create lyrics for the whole song. So if the song has 3 verses and a chorus, you need to write lyrics for 3 verses and a chorus.
  • Each user may only have one entry.
  • All entries must be completely saved before May 6th, 2006 at 11:59PM EST (22:59 CDT).
  • No changes may be made to any entry after the deadline, no matter how minor the change. Any changes will be reverted.

How to Enter[edit]

  • Create a subpage of your user page with the name "Theme Song" by going to your user page and adding "/Theme Song" after your name in the address bar (e.x. User:AtionSong/Theme Song).
  • Start the page by copying and pasting the following, and then filling in the details:
{{Theme Entry|
  Username = Type your username here
| Parody_title = Type your new song name here
| Original_song = Type the original TMBG song name here
  • Now, type <pre class="lyrics-table"> and begin writing your lyrics on the next line.
  • Once you are finished, put </pre> on the bottom.
  • List your name under the Entries section of this page by copying and pasting this and filling in the details (leave the four tildes):
| Username
| '''[[User:Username/Theme Song|New song title]]'''
| [[Parodied song]]
| ~~~~


All entries will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Singable
