Somewhere Over This Rainbow
I came across the parody song last night by a fellow named "Randy Rainbow." Yeah, I'm going to guess that's not his real name. Though I'm surprised he's using a pseudonym because not only is the parody quite good, but the production of the video is absolutely wonderful and joyfully clever.
The song is to the tune of "You Can't Stop the Beat" from the musical, Hairspray, written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. This version is called, "You Can't Stop His Tweets."
If you don't know the original, here it is from the film. No need to watch the whole thing (since it runs almost nine minutes...), though it's a lot of fun, but enough to get an idea of it.
And here is Randy Rainbow's version --

Wow, glad you discovered Randy Rainbow! We've been watching his videos on YouTube for the last year or so and they are all of a similar high quality, though Can't Stop the Tweets is certainly one of his best. There are many more so check them out!

Don, thanks for your note. Actually, I *had * checked others out and planned to post a few. And yes, "You Can't Stop the Tweets" did seem like one of the best, so I lucked out at the top...
