Insane Ian (If You're Wondering If I'm Stalking You) I'm Stalking You 
A few months ago, Jace McLain of Nuclear Bubble Wrap told me he was working on a parody of Weezer's "[If You're Wondering If I Want You To] I Want You To" about a stalker. It seems he thinks Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo shouldn't be writing songs from the perspective of a teenager anymore, especially now that he's in his forties and had that groovy pedo-stache for a while. Jace wanted to write a song that took this creepy factor and multiplied it.

Personally, I didn't think it was creepy enough.

After NBW announced they were no longer doing parodies, I asked Jace if I could take a crack at the song, since his version would never be released, and the end result is here. This is yet another track from my perpetually-in-pre-order CD/DVD Collection "Grand Theft Audio", which I will have out by the end of this year if it kills me.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Very funny, dude! Creepy, but funny. So, when are we going to see a video for this one? :)

THIS IS SO FUNNY!!! I'm excited, 2 II CD's with Weezer parodies.

Who are you going to be stalking in the video? :) Funny, well done.

These are some pretty sharp lyrics dude. Could use a few production tweaks before you put it on the album. But overall, this song made me laugh my ass off. Great job man.

Great song! I'll have to share this with the girl I'm seeing through *my* telescope...

Good, but reminded me about of Weird Al's Melanie. In fact, was the garbage line supposed to be an homage to that song?

Sweeeeet. I'm glad you used this parody. Captures Rivers' creepiness quite nicely. :)

Thanks all! I hadn't planned on their being a video, but that may change...

Lee, yes, when writing this, I thought of it as a spiritual sequel to "Melanie", or perhaps, in keeping with current trends, the "Hollywood Remake".

I remember when Jace sent this to me a while ago. I always thought it was a neat idea, good to see it hasn't gone to waste. As usual gents, great performance!

Wow. I just finished the lyrics for my September song "Starstruck" last week. I was so delighted and excited. The way I captured the looney mental goings on inside the mind of the narrator. And the music is coming together nicely for my upcoming unique song about ... a guy ... who's stalking ... a movie star ... oh fuck me.
