Star Trek Song Parodies

Can anyone think of any pop songs in particular to turn into parodies based on or around the Star Trek universe?

"Ma-Ma-Ma-Belle" by Electric Light Orchestra (1973)
Star Trek parody title: "Ma-Ma-Majel" (tribute to Majel Barrett Roddenberry)

"Rubber Duckie" by Ernie (Sesame Street) (1970)
Star Trek parody title: "Fuzzy Tribble" (some of the fuzzy Tribbles actually squeak like a dog toy)

"Maybellene" by Chuck Berry (1955)
Star Trek parody title: "Majel-lene" (again, a tribute to Majel Barrett Roddenberry)

One of the most recent trending filk covers is "Klingon Style", covering PSY's Gangnam Style phenomenon. Watch the original on YouTube, then find the parody. It's translated the original Korean into the original Klingon. B-)

Re: Star Trek Song Parodies

Trekkies and We Know It, a parody of Sexy And I Know It by LMFAO, made me laugh like hell.

As for recent pop songs....well, I don't follow a lot pop music anymore. "Call Me, Maybe" has been parodied by just about everyone, so it surely would be ripe for a Trekkie spin. "Call Me Janeway" or "He's Dead, Maybe" or something like that.

Alliota-Haynes-Jeremiah, who were best known for their regional hit Lake Shore Drive (LSD), did one called Beam Me Up Scotty.

Not sure if you'd consider it a spoof, since it was written as-is.
