Friday by Bob Dylan

I first heard this song in a helicopter over Vietnam. It was a Friday.

update: Thanks for frontpage NG! Also, that is not Black in the corner, I wish no violence to come to her or anyone related with this.


That was pretty funny and catchy!

Jeremy, I never expected you--of Sloth TV fame--to make something so minimalistic and hilarious out of a YouTube video. Most of the time, when a fad gets started on YouTube, it becomes nauseatingly bad (YouTube Poop for example). However, I did enjoy this little gem that originated from there. Aside from that, I'll give my two cents...

Visuals: I like how Bob, the dead woman, and the guitar were drawn in this considering the minimalist graphics this had, and the lip sync was above average. However, the guitar playing animation was jerky, but something like that is hard as hell to make it look good.
Sound: The guitar solo was quite nice and I also liked the vocals as well. They may not be up to par with Evil-Dog, Druox the Shredder, or Xarnor; but that would defeat the point of this.
Content: For a novel concept, I found this to be pretty funny at times. Unfortunately, it tended to drag at times due to the spartan graphics. Of course, this didn't need to be like the Stick Slayer, but a change of scenery or a different angle could have helped.

What I liked:
-Novel idea
-Nice drawings for something that's bare bones
-Funny and catchy
-Good guitar solo

What I didn't like:
-Tended to get redundant
-The guitar animation was jerky and could have used a bit of easing.

Overall: It may not be your best submission, but I still enjoyed this regardless of that. Here's a nine from me to you.

Thanks old NGer! My apologies that I didn't credit the musician more clearer. The song was not by me, but by another guy who parodied the original song, so I'm just offering something more interesting to look at than a youtube image. His name is Mike Bauer, "HeyMikeBauer" on youtube, a link at the end of the loooonnnnng flash video or in the NG credit section. A fair review, I will take it! Thanks again.

this y it great

if u dont see fryday by rebeca brown first then this is a peace of a but thats the point the song is a harible song and that is great!

Ha... hahaha

This just goes to show how much the tone and style of the music can change the meaning of the lyrics. In this version the lyrics have more of a downtrodden, sarcastic feel just because of the Dylan style as opposed to the horrible, horrible original. It's kind of hilarious. Also your voice reminds me more of Lou Reed in the Velvet Underground than Dylan.

The animation is cool, but it loops too much and gets boring after a while. Also, why is there a dead girl in the back?

People find this review helpful!

Fun......... fun, fun, fun

I honestly think that only Bob Dylan would be able to pull that song off and still sound meaningful. Good take on an AWFUL, AWFUL song.


Good drawing and animation, 8 stars.
