Feeling a little "Weird"

Yes, today is Wednesday. Tuesday is the day Janet at www.theartofgettingby.com ASKS her question. I can ANSWER Tell It To Me Tuesday any day I want to. Nyah.

Janet writes (yesterday):
Today's TITMT is...
What, in your opinion, are the best satire songs? Just to clarify, the songs need not be spoofs or remakes and/or they can be tongue in cheek or sarcastic. Really anything that has made you chuckle over the years for whatever reason, will probably suffice.

A long time ago, there was a guy named Yankovick who was the polka king. The polka "prince" is no other than Weird Al Yankovick. Bear with me - it's my first time posting videos, but these are my absolute favorites. They're all separate posts, but I think you will get a chuckle out of them....

I love Weird Al. Without exception, he does all his parodies BETTER than the original artist did their original song (well, okay - "Like A Virgin" was a little sucky...). The "Complicated Song" is a great example of this. If you go to www.YouTube.com and look up Avril Levine's version you'll see what I mean.

Enjoy!

We should just all agree, Weird Al is the king of this.

He just is.
