Remixing – Misery Business

April 4, 2011

Here is an example of Zenon fans remixing the movie in order to create new meaning and media surrounding it.

The song is by Paramore and is called “Misery Business.” Its about how good the singer feels when stealing the boyfriend of a girl that doesn’t like her. In the movie, Margie likes Greg before Zenon comes to Earth. Once Zenon is on Earth and it is apparent Greg likes her, Margie tries doing whatever to sabotage her. In the end, Greg and Zenon end up together. Although the plot of the movie does not match the song’s lyrics perfectly, to emphasizes Zenon and Margie’s rivalry in a different way than the movie does.
