Hello BlogClanners! Mushroompaw here with my first article! Today I will be turning normal songs you may have heard into warriors songs about the cats we all know and love! I hope you enjoy this as it is my first time writing an article for the blog, so let’s begin!

The first song is Counting Stars, by OneRepublic. I have changed it to be about Jayfeather, the grouchy old medicine cat we all love, who is grumpy on the outside, but really sensitive on the inside. I think this song rewritten perfectly describes how Jayfeather feels about his blindness, so here it is.

Lately, I’ve been wishing I could see, dreamin’ about the cat that I could be.
Lately, I’ve been wishing, praying hard,
But no more counting wishes, we’ll be counting stars……
Those cats up in the….. stars.

I see the light, shining from above.
In dreams I see, and I love.
Half Moon is the only one, pelt shines brightly, like the sun.

Blind, but I’m not that blind,
Young, with a leader’s mind,
I don’t think the stars align,
Gotta watch it all the time.

And I
Feel something so wrong, about Dark Forest rising.
And I
Feel something so wrong, about Dark Forest thriving.
I couldn’t lie, couldn’t lie, couldn’t lie,
Everything that blinds me makes me wanna cry.

Lately, I’ve been wishing I could see, dreamin’ about the cat that I could be.
Lately, I’ve been wishing, praying hard,
But no more counting wishes, we’ll be counting stars.

Lately, I’ve been wishing I could see, dreamin’ about the cat that I could be.
Lately, I’ve been wishing, praying hard,
But no more counting wishes, we’ll be, we’ll be counting stars.
Yeah, yeah
I feel the flames, and I feel it burn,
Down this river, every turn,
Dream is our five-letter word,
Collect them herbs, watch them burn.
Blind, but I’m not that blind,
Young, with a leader’s mind,
I don’t think the stars align,
Gotta watch it all the time.

And I
Feel something so wrong, about Dark Forest rising.
And I
Feel something so wrong, about Dark Forest thriving.
I couldn’t lie, couldn’t lie, couldn’t lie,
Everything that blinds me makes me wanna cry.

Lately, I’ve been wishing I could see, dreamin’ about the cat that I could be.
Lately, I’ve been wishing, praying hard,
But no more counting wishes, we’ll be counting stars.

Lately, I’ve been wishing I could see, dreamin’ about the cat that I could be.
Lately, I’ve been wishing, praying hard,
But no more counting wishes, we’ll be counting stars.

Take them herbs, watch them burn,
Sink in the lake, it was Flame’s turn.
Take them herbs, watch them burn,
Sink in the lake, it was Flame’s turn.
Take them herbs, watch them burn,
Sink in the lake, it was Flame’s turn.
Take them herbs, watch them burn,
Sink in the lake, it was Flame’s turn.
Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly.

Lately, I’ve been wishing I could see, dreamin’ about the cat that I could be.
Lately, I’ve been wishing, praying hard,
But no more counting wishes, we’ll be counting stars.

Lately, I’ve been wishing I could see, dreamin’ about the cat that I could be.
Lately, I’ve been wishing, praying hard,
But no more counting wishes, we’ll be, we’ll be counting stars.

Take them herbs, watch them burn,
Sink in the lake, it was Flame’s turn.
Take them herbs, watch them burn,
Sink in the lake, it was Flame’s turn.
Take them herbs, watch them burn,
Sink in the lake, it was Flame’s turn.
Take them herbs, watch them burn,
Sink in the lake, it was Flame’s turn.

This song reflects Jayfeather because it tells the story of how he feels inside and how all his thoughts are sometimes overwhelming. These are all the things Jay has had to deal with. He’s had a hard life, believe it or not. Imagine being born blind, being told you can’t achieve your dreams, being lied to about your parentage AND being accused of murder. Then having your sister ‘die’ only to come back and be brutally killed again. After all that, STARCLAN DOESN’T SPEAK TO YOU, EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE BEEN RELYING ON STARCLAN YOUR WHOLE LIFE!

Next song is Sunroof by Nicky Youre. I have changed this song to be sung by Cloudtail about his relationship with Brightheart. This song is about sunningrocks, and how mates can go to the rocks to sun themselves and relax. I made this song before coming up with a cat to put is with and I think CloudxBright is probably the best ship in my opinion in the first arc. Anyways, now to the song.

La da la da da, la da da da
La da la da di da da, la da da da da
La da la da da, la da da
La da la da di da
We’re sitting on Sunningrocks,
Pads so warm, feel like socks.
I only got one thing on my mind,
I got no worries I’m here with you,
You’re making me feel brand new.
Now I got that sunshine in my life.
You got those amber eyes, and your pelt…. you know it.
You got me padding after you wherever you go,
If StarClan was real, this would be prophesied,
We would be written in the stars,
Yeah, we’re padding though the brambles and thorns,
I really need to get some warmth up in my paws! (I got no worries I’m here with you)
I’m feeling like this might be my time to bake in sun,
With you, with you,
We’re sitting on Sunningrocks,
Pads so warm, feel like socks.
I only got one thing on my mind,
I got no worries I’m here with you,
You’re making me feel brand new.
Now I got that sunshine in my life.

I’m sitting on sunningrocks
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, ooh
I got no worries I’m here with you
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, ooh
Yeah, we’re padding though the brambles and thorns,
I really need to get some warmth up in my paws! (I got no worries I’m here with you)
I’m feeling like this might be my time to bake in sun,
With you, with you,

We’re sitting on Sunningrocks,
Pads so warm, feel like socks.
I only got one thing on my mind,
I got no worries I’m here with you,
You’re making me feel brand new.
Now I got that sunshine in my life.

La da la da da, la da da da
La da la da di da da, la da da da da
La da la da da, la da da da
La da la da di da da da
La da la da da, la da da da
La da la da di da da, la da da da da
La da la da da, la da da da
La da la da di da

It’s just perfect. Am I right or am I right? 😉

Now for this next tune, I picked Cheap Thrills and I made it about Sparkpelt and her insane hunting skills as an apprentice. I think my version of this song works well with Sparkpelt because she was very good at hunting even as a young cat. On her first day out hunting, Sparkpaw didn’t miss a catch, while Alderpaw couldn’t catch anything, no matter how hard he tried.

Come on, come on, let’s get the hunting on,
It’s a leaf bare night, the prey won’t stay long,
Gotta practice my stalk, gotta work on my crouch,
It’s a leaf bare night, the prey won’t stay long,
‘Til I hit the forest, hit the forest,
I’ll get all I need,
No I ain’t got prey, I ain’t got prey,
But I got skills, baby.
Baby, I know that ima go out, and I’ll hunt tonight.
(I love hunting!)
Baby I know how important it is that I hunt tonight,
(I love hunting!)
But I don’t need no prayer to the stars,
As long as I can hear their footsteps,
I don’t need no prayer to the stars,
As long as I keep hunting.
Come on, come on, let’s get the hunting on,
It’s snowing outside, the prey won’t stay long,
Gotta sharpen my claws, shake out my pelt.
It’s snowing outside, the prey won’t stay long,
‘Til I hit the forest, hit the forest,
I’ll get all I need,
No I ain’t got prey, I ain’t got prey,
But I got skills, baby.

Baby, I know that ima go out, and I’ll hunt tonight.
(I love hunting!)
Baby I know how important it is that I hunt tonight,
(I love hunting!)
But I don’t need no prayer to the stars,
As long as I can hear their footsteps,
I don’t need no prayer to the stars,
As long as I keep hunting.

I don’t need no prayer to the stars,
As long as I can hear their footsteps.
I don’t need no prayer to the stars,
As long as I keep hunting.
(Oh, oh, oh)
Baby, I know that ima go out, and I’ll hunt tonight.
(I love hunting!)
Baby I know how important it is that I hunt tonight,
(I love hunting!)
But I don’t need no prayer to the stars,
As long as I can hear their footsteps,
I don’t need no prayer to the stars,
As long as I keep hunting.

La-la-la-la-la
(I love cheap thrills)
La-la-la-la-la
(I love cheap thrills)
La-la-la-la-la
(I love cheap thrills)
La-la-la-la-la
(I love cheap thrills)
