If there's an upside to the coronavirus (there isn't), it's that Randy Rainbow is stuck inside and has the time to wrote more song parodies than usual. This one is terrific -- not necessarily his best rhymes, but the words are a hoot and some real laughs from the production values. Plus, it has a bit of a different focus than most, this time sort of somewhat on him. If you can't quite put your finger on the song it's parodying, though it sounds familiar, the original is "Go the Distance" from the Disney film, Hercules, with a score by Alan Menken and David Zippel.
