To Summarize: when it comes to Weird AL i’m Big, Massive and Hard: WAIT.
That came out wrong.
Mr. Weird Al just released his new CD – Mandatory Fun – and to celebrate I’ve been looking at all thing Weird All. I looked at the Top Ten Weird Al Originals. Now I’m looking at the Top Ten Weird Al Parodies
NOTE: Yes I know your fav song (insert title here) didn’t make it. To you – and only you – I say this. IT WAS #11. I SWEAR!!
This is the best of all Weird Al’s parodies. It’s based on MJ, it has a GREAT video, it funny as hell and the song is brilliant. This is what happens when you take a GREAT song and give it to another GREAT musician to parody it. You get a GREAT SONG PARODY.
After many years of ‘being gone’ in many people’s mind, this song brought Weird Al back to the forefront. It is also one of my personal anthems.
This song made Weird Al – in the words of Chamillionaire – GANSTA. This opened up Al to the rap world. After this he did P-Diddy, Eminem and Chamillionaire
His first Star Wars song. He took a puppet and made him even more legendary then he was.
As a geek I love computers. As a geek Weird Al loves computer. As a geek and a Weird Al fan I love hearing about how Weird Al loves computers.
Rumour has it that Madonna gave Mr. Weird the idea for this song herself.
Another Star Wars song. For many people this was the best part of Episode One.
This is the first one. This is the parody that started it all. Ok technically it was My Bologna BUT this is the one that skyrocketed him.
HEY – he’s gonna sit by you.
How do you save a GREAT song after it’s been played to death by the internet, radio, and TV? You let Weird Al have a crack at it. He saved this song.
10. Party in the CIA
This wasn’t the most popular song on the Alpocolypse CD – A Miley Cyrus parody – but unlike Born this Way, Whatever you Like, Another Tattoo and TMZ (which were great song btw) Party has some incredible lyrics. It was smart and funny, playing on facts, rumours and movie legend all rolled into one great song.
