IMHO, the videos for the five Internet Leaks songs are his funniest. Skipper Dan is a classic. Weird Al's one of my favorites; unfortunately I only have his first, maybe only, Greatest Hits CD. The rest of the songs of his I have I DLed off of Walmart. I have seen him live though; the Youtube vids of his concert appearances don't quite do it justice. If you can make a show, go. You'll be laughing for weeks.

Favorite songs: It's All About the Pentiums, White 'n' Nerdy, Skipper Dan, I Lost on Jeopardy

I am not his biggest fan, but I certainly do like some of the songs....

My favorite would either be constipated or Albuquerque. :lol:

Ill have to beg borrow or steal that E-bay song since I cant get I-tunes anymore.

But I love what he did on the similiar topic of "Craigs List". He managed to persuade the actual keyboardist for the Doors to join him in a perfect send up of the Doors on the song "Craigs List". He does a dead on Jim Morrison belting out a bluesy psychedelic saga of selling yard impliments on line while backed up by the real Ray Manzarek.

Another of my favorites is the "Hot Rocks Polka"- a medley of the top hits by the Rolling Stones- all done polka style.

I love his music. I just wish I could sing along to it, but he's got a funny voice and really strange notes sometimes, so it's hard.

BIG Weird Al fan here. I love "White and Nerdy," "Eat It," and just discovered his parody on Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Wikipedia has a good article on him.

Not a full song, but on his Alternative Polka, he was originally planning to include Weezer's "Buddy Holly", however, singer Rivers Cuomo denied his permission. Here it is:

I wonder if I could find the full version of it somewhere :? I found a torrent with all his CDs excluding his collections/complications a couple days ago in perfect 320 quality mp3 :D Most of what I had pirated before Poodle Hat was was in 128q & some had problems. Only problem with the 320 is that his song You Don't Love Me Anymore has about 10minuts of space after because it was like that on the CD sense it was the last song & his song Headline News wasn't in it sense it was only on his TV album which was a complication. I won't post any links sense posting torrents violates the rules here but you can probably find it fairly easily if you google

I created a folder in his main one amongst his other CD folders with just his polka songs in it :geek:

I'm disappointed that he didn't use 'Viva La Vida' in the latest medley, that song just begs for a 2/4 treatment. Also too heavy on Lady Gaga content, but I admire that he's had the same band members for 30+ years

I've always loved Weird Al and in 1996 (I think) saw him in concert at the Warner Theater in Erie, PA. Every now and then I'll bust out my version of "Yoda" lol

Amish Paradise, Virus Alert, Don't Download This Song and Fat (Bad by MJ) are some that aren't mentioned that I recall being rather funny.
Pretty Fly For A Jedi was okay but not one of his best songs.
