    Default Weird Al Yankovich

    Any Weird Al fans around? I don't listen to him often, but I think his music is very funny. My husband and I have a strange tradition when we drive downstate to see family, our playlist tends to kick off with a few Weird Al songs.

    He's sure had tremendous staying power. And it all started with Dr. Demento. Now, there was a unique radio program.

    He is hilarious. I like his songs a lot. For those that don't know, he does hilarious fake interviews too.

    He's a very nice guy. You'd never imagine that he'd be a quiet person in real life.

    I love his parody of Eminem's "Lose Yourself," called "Couch Potato," among many others. He can rap like its nobody's business. He has a one of a kind mind with words, and is an excellent performer, a good writer of cheesy polka music, and possesses an all around amazing and original personality.

    I heard that he turned down a 5 million dollar beer endorsement deal.

    Do you love Ludwig Van Beethovens music?
    Does his life-story/music inspire you?
    Can you strongly relate to the emotions on his music?

    I love Weird Al. I saw him in concert at a county fair in Wisconsin. There was no fee other than admission to the fair, which was $25 or so. He showed hilarious films featuring fake interviews of him with George Harrison, Andre Agassi, and others. His encore was "Albuquerque", probably one of this longest songs (maybe his second longest), and his performance was even longer than the recorded version, and I'm certain much of it was improvised.

    I think his work has suffered a little thanks to the declining quality of popular music in the last decade or more. It's hard to produce excellent parodies without decent source material to parody. But I still like his original songs.

    Two of our favorites were "Living with a hernia" and the "American Pie" parody about Star Wars -both of them the video versions of course. An older one we loved was "I Lost on Jeopardy". Funny, funny guy.
