Achievement Whore

This song was created in homage to my dear wife, who is not only wonderful but also is a raging achievement whore. It is based on “Jessie’s Girl” by Rick Springfield (link will come later). I could save my own embarrassment by saying that the inspiration to use this song came to me in the car or while playing, but I am ashamed to admit that it was while watching Glee.

Special thanks goes out to Reyman on Grizzly Hills! Your support helps keep the music going!
The music for this song was bought at http://www.karaoke-version.com, where you can find many songs without background vocals.

This song was played in episode #192 of The Instance Podcast.

Achievement Whore

It started with a patch, yeah, it was there when I got back online
The first one I dinged,
it felt so sublime
I knew right then that I had to make them mine
And I watch the points as they rise
I’m about to get another,
I just know it
Yeah, I am grinding for more so late late at night

You know, I think I’m an achievement whore
I think I’m an achievement whore
Why do these points affect me like crack?

I group and even raid, but loot is last thing on my mind
You know, I feel so giddy when the next one is through
But I still can’t stop
till I get another two
And I watch the points as they rise
I’m about to get another,
I just know it
Yeah, I am grinding for more so late late at night

An achievement whore, I think I’m an achievement whore
Why do these points affect me like crack
like an achievement whore
I think I’m an achievement whore
Why do these points affect me
Why do these points affect me like crack
(break)

And I look at my list all the time,
plan the next place I need to be
I need more points, I need them all the time
I’m like a junkie in serious need

Tell me, why do these points affect me like crack

(break)

Ya know, I think I’m an achievement whore
I think I’m an achievement whore
an achievement whore

Why do these points affect me like crack
like an achievement whore
I think I’m an achievement whore
I need more and more, achievement whore

  1. I first heard your music through listening to “The Instance” and I think that it is just fantastic. All your songs are really well done, and they’re good enough to both make me laugh and also love the song for being a great tune.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. First time i heard this today.
    Being a connoisseur of WoW parodys and originals pieces, I have to say this song is 10x better than the song of the same title by Gigi and her crew. Very good song parody in its own right.. but much better being wow based.
