Thread: Weird Al

  1. #251
    Just found out last week that he will be playing at the Northwest Washington Fair in Lynden, so I think I will go see that. I've lived near there all my life, yet have never been to a grandstand show there, and only ever went to the fair two or three times that I can recall. Last time was probably in high school.

    His website shows a 110-card limited edition trading card set. I don't even collect the cards, but...

    Shouldn't Al be doing a Lady Gaga medley about now? He could call it the "Polkaface Medley" and substitute "Oom pah pah!" for that little hook in "Bad Romance". Could you imagine Al doing a take on all of that crazy woman's costumes??!!!!!

    No.

    Weird Al has too much taste to touch that talentless tramp.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I'd beg to differ. He's parodied lesser groups than that. Ummm... Milli Vanilli, anyone?

    - Michael Jackson
    - Madonna
    - Milli Vanilli
    - Robert Palmer
    - Chamillionaire
    - R. Kelly
    - Greg Kihn
    - Toni Basil
    - Joan Jett
    - James Brown
    - U2
    - Survivor
    - Avril Lavigne [sp?]
    - Tiffany
    - Billy Joel
    - Billy Ray Cyrus
    - Billy Idol
    - whoever sang "Macarthur Park" first (Richard Harris? Donna Summer?)
    - whoever sang "Lola"
    - Red Hot Chili Peppers
    - Coolio
    - Green Day
    - Back Street Boys

    Many of those are "one hit wonders" or flashes in the pan. I don't know if she's even pan flash-worthy; I put her in the same category as Marilyn Manson (edgy on purpose, but mainly a waste).

    What about Crash Test Dummies?

    Nice job with the list BCJ, that coves a bunch of them (not counting the polka medley people).

    I did say it was "some" of his parodies (I missed the CTD, and also Nelly, Queen, Los Lobos, and Tone Loc as others come to mind); yes, the polkas weren't included as they were covers, not parodies.

    I blanked out on the Kinks.
