Smash Fiction is a debate-style comedy podcast in which a rotating cast of nerds argue on behalf of their chosen fictional characters. Only one can win!

Jun 7, 2020

This episode originally aired as the Patreon bonus episode for March 2018. The original description follows:

I think it's safe to say that writing this song has been an exploration of Skeletor's sensitive and emotional, yet still very evil, side. Based on how many times he's utterly failed over the years, he's finally turned to a classical music piece to maybe make a name for himself, but even then, still can't escape He-Man.

When I started out with writing this song, I was torn between writing a bombastic, dissonant piece or a more somber, emotional one. I basically attempted to combine all of those feelings into this twisted, classical amalgamation. I started out with samples of all the hosts' most terrifying Skeletor laughs and some extremely dissonant piano... and then, because I'm Liz Logan, thought it would be a great idea to go from evil (what you would expect) to something unexpected, i.e. pleasant sounding. Then, I wanted the end of the song to be Skeletor's mental snare and bass-driven march to actually completing something for once. Bravo!

LYRICS for "Skeletor Symphony No. 1"

No one cares for me,
No one seems to see

That I'm so powerful
That I even impress myself.

I like to feel evil.
I live to be bad.

You're a loser Skeletor!
He-Man, you boob!

Everything I do
Is for the sake of evil!

Too bad I'm surrounded by dolts and halfwits and brainless idiots
Who couldn't even beat a motley group of gnomes

Skeletor is love!

Evil

You poor metal munching morons

And this is how it ends,
With Skeletor triumphant, at last!
