    [​IMG] Are there any Weird Al fans out there? If so, what's your favorite song?

    Mine is Albuquerque :grin: : "Way back when I was just a little bitty boy, living in a box under the stairs in the corner of the basement of the house 1/2 a block down the street from Jerry's Bait Shop (you know the place), well anyway..."

    [​IMG] Gotta love Weird Al! I haven't heard too many of his songs, but so far my favorite is "Amish Paradise". Ever seen the music video? :D

    I've been a "Weird Al" Yankovic fan since his first hit "My Bologna" ;) I don't think he made a song I didn't laugh at! I forgot to mention I saw him on two different tours and the last one I won the tickets off the radio :) I think the janitor in "UHF" is Kramer from Sienfeld, am I right?

    I met him in a swamp down in Dagoba
    Where the water bubbles all the time like a giant carbonated soda ... S O D A soda

    I saw this little runt sitting there on a log, I asked him his name and in a raspy voice he said Yoda. Y-O-D-A Yoda, yo-yo-yo-yoda.

    That's my favorite (sung to the tune of Lola)

    [​IMG] Wierd al is great!! I love all his songs! My favourites are probably - the jerry springer song, albuquerque (it's freakily similiar to a friend of mine in it's mannerisims "no i want you to cut off my arms and legs with a chainsaw!" so i did. hehe) and finally the first i heard.... dare to be stupid (it was in transformers the movie soundtrack - arguably one of the best soundtracks of all time, well argued by me that is :p ).

    I've liked Weird Al for many many years. Once I saw him live. That was excellent.

    Saruman, I believe there's a notice on his website saying that most of the parodies running round the net (the only one I can remember specifically is "Oops, I got pregnant again") were NOT done by Al. Those last titles in particular strike me as not his sort of thing. He doesn't go there, especially since a big part of his following is kids.

    You know, I haven't seen the video for Amish Paradise, but I did see him perform it at Just for Laughs once.

    I don't know, but everywhere I look it is written that these songs are "by Weird Al Yankovich".

    And there is a great song, called What if god smoked cannabis, also "by Weird Al", but it is a woman's voice singing.
