And I’ll be there before you know it
I’ll be gone before you see me
And do you think you can imagine
Anything so lonely
And I know you’d really like me
But I never stick around
Because time keeps dragging on
“The Ballad of Barry Allen,” a song about the downsides of being a speedster. Original song by Jim’s Big Ego, performed here by Eben Brooks.
Lyrics available here.
This song works so well I had to get @axonsandsynapses (my regular “has a better memory for music than me” contact) to confirm that it was actually a parody. It’s based on a version of the Child ballad “The False Knight On The Road,” and it just…works. Really well. I love space folk songs. Especially for Firefly.
“The Man Dressed in Brown,” by Eben Brooks
Okay, so I think this song is hilarious. I have no idea if anyone else will think this song is hilarious. It’s something about the combination filk lyrics and the song being filked, which is a weird old ballad about trying to force people to marry you.
…anyway. “Geeky Girls,” by Eben Brooks (from his new album! which can be found here)
Eben Brooks’ reimagining of Five For Fighting’s “Superman” as sung by Lex Luthor

I once wore a helm, or should I say, it once wore me
It’s kind of silly and kind of sad – “Being Doctor Fate,” by Eben Brooks, to the tune of Norwegian Wood
