Filking is fan-made songs, usually but not always to other people's music.
For example, if I were to write a song to the tune of "We Will Rock You"
calling it "Chrestomanci" (with the chorus "Chrest-o-Chrestomanci", of
course *g*) that would be a filk.
I suppose it could be argued that professional singers filk too "Hello
Muddah Hello Faddah" could be filking of Ponchielli for example but that's
not how the word tends to be used.
