Law school song parody

Cute video, and here's an article from ABA Journal, by Debra Cassens Weiss (as Debra Cassens Moss, she wrote a 1991 ABA Journal cover story, "Judges Under Fire -- ALJ Independence at Issue," about seven Indian Probate Administrative Law Judge clients at the Department of the Interior whom I was honored to represent. They opposed abolition of the job of DOI Chief ALJ under the first President Bush.  The DOI Chief ALJ was revived under the second President Bush.

Law school drudgery chronicled in 2L's hit parody video

West Virginia University 2L Andy Loud is giving his mom some of the credit for the success of his music video about the drudgery of law school life.
The parody of Maroon 5’s “Payphone” got more than 100,000 views just two weeks after it was posted on YouTube, the Charleston Daily Mail reports. “Now, 10,000 of those hits are probably just my mom clicking ‘refresh,’ ” Loud told the newspaper.
Loud wrote the lyrics and rapped for the video featuring the vocals of his friend, Tyler Murray, a West Virginia grad who works in retail, according to the Daily Mail and Their band is Chocolate Ghost House, named after a level in a video game. Here are some of the lyrics:
I’m at a law school / Trying to keep cool / All of my prospects looking blue / Just doing my readings / Motions and pleadings / And case briefing International Shoe …
If the Eighth Amendment does exist / How are they allowing all of this? 

“If you would like a crash course in what it is like to be in law school, just listen to the song,” Loud told “And if you still want to go to law school, good for you.”

I would love to see a full blown fantasy historical musical on the positive transformation of the law based on Saint Augustine. It could be called, "Debasement to the Roof Tops".

How is your singing voice Ed?
