As we head into Super Tuesday, political satirist Randy Rainbow looks to the wisdom of the Lloyd Webber canon to help us find our way past the gaffes, blunders, missteps and exits among the Democratic candidates.

In a mash-up of “Any Dream Will Do” and “Coat of Many Colors” from the hit musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Rainbow underscores the one definitive truth for Democrats this election cycle: “Any Dem Will Do.”

As usual, Rainbow’s wordsmithing is on point and clever.

“How will I choose / It’s like the lotto / But here’s my motto / Any Dem will do”

Start your day with a bit of Randy.

(Hey, I like the sound of that…)

Parody: Randy Rainbow ‘There Are No Rules For Donald’

Political satirist Randy Rainbow is back to brighten our week with his new video, “No Rules For Donald.”

The song is a parody of the smash hit “New Rules” by Dua Lipa.

As some of the commenters on the YouTube page noted, this is slightly darker than earlier parodies which is perhaps as it should be. There’s not much funny about this situation anymore.

Murray teamed up with Emmy Award-winning choreographer Travis Wall for this parody of the Billie Eilish hit, “Bad Guy.”

Fun video for a Saturday morning. Check it out below along with the parody lyrics:

Lyrics:

Nice shirt and pants is that Jcrew

I know just what you want to do

Stay in, postmate cookies but you

can’t seem to stay awake

Barry’s Bootcamp at 6 am

Too bad I hit the snooze again

V Shape, Six Pack just won’t happen

Hold please, my Samsung broke

So you’re a fun gay

Stay out way past one gay

Never having kids gay

Friends with Antoni gay

Well Im the bad type

Best friends with your mom type

Never been to Spotlight

Hate to stand at bars type

I’m a bad gay

DUH

I like it when you take my whole family

nosebleeds, Hollywood Bowl

Lyft Pool to save just 3 bucks home

You’re my gay Romeo

Don’t want to join your dodgeball team

Too much high school PTSD

Won’t wear a jockstrap and jersey

(Unless you’re Gus Kenworthy)

So you’re a fun gay

Stay out way past one gay

Never having kids gay

Friends with Antoni gay

Well I’m the bad type

Best friends with your mom type

Never been to Spotlight

Hate to stand at bars type

I’m a bad gay

DUH

I’ll never call you Dad

I know that you get mad when we’re alone

You said you’re scared of me?

I mean, I don’t see what you see,

But let’s get just your mom on the phone

I’m a bad gay

I’m a bad gay

Giuliani, here you go again

Can’t trust what he says on TV shows

Randy Rainbow Skewers Trump With ‘Cheeto Christ Stupid-Czar’

Political satirist Randy Rainbow’s latest hysterical offering is his mashup of tunes from the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice classic musical, Jesus Christ Superstar.

But in this iteration, Rainbow riffs on Donald Trump’s recent headlines when he tweeted about a political pundit referring to him as the “King of Israel,” and when he looked up to the sky and said, “I am the chosen one.”

So, Randy mixes his magic on three songs from the show: “King Herod’s Song,” “Everything’s Alright,” and the title track.

“Cheeto Christ, Cheeto Christ / He’s like if Jesus were pumpkin-spiced.”

The segment with dueling Lindsey Grahams is cute, but my favorite moment is incorporating Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s now famous ‘clapping’ at one of the Donald’s State of the Union addressed.

Cute way to start the week. By the way, did I mention Randy is nominated for an Emmy Award in the short form category? Congrats to Randy!
