Adam Ant sings the scifi?

Here’s today’s science fiction and fantasy medly tribute to the songs of Adam Ant.

I’m the dandy SFF author who you’re too scared to mention
I spend my cash on collectibles and writing novels for your attention
The devil take your podcasts and your Dr Who figures collection!
The trash you watch on TV you’ll qualify for next year’s old age pension!

I’m the dandy genre author so sick of easy fashion
The steampunk boots and 19th century suits that people think so dashing
So what’s the point of print publishing when market share is the Kindle taking?
It’s kind of tough to watch Stargate Universe when no more series are they making

We’re the dandy genre authors so tired of excuses
Of deep meaning philosophies where only showbiz loses
We’re the dandy genre authors and here’s our invitation
Throw the BBC’s literary coverage overboard and join our genre nation

We don’t follow Stephen Fry on Twitter
That would be a joke
You know we’re going to defriend him defriend him
So FaceBook can take note take note

Margaret Atwood
Margaret Atwood
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of
Don’t you ever, don’t you ever
Stop writing SpecFic, showing me you’re handsome

If the words unwritten
Get stuck in your throat
Send a Borders token token
Write it on a bankrupt Euro note Euro note

Margaret Atwood
Margaret Atwood
Hard SF is nothing to be scared of
Don’t you ever, don’t you ever
Stop writing genre fiction, showing me you’re handsome

When they saw you kneeling
Crying words that you mean
Opening their eyeballs eyeballs
Pretending that you’re Soylent Green Soylent Green

Goody two goody two goody goody two antigravity shoes
Goody two goody two goody goody two antigravity shoes
Don’t watch Game of Thrones – what do you do
Don’t watch Game of Thrones – what do you do
Subtle Star Trek in-jokes follow
There must be something he’s hiding.
