Happy, Weird Al Style
« on: July 15, 2014, 03:58:34 PM »
Found on Facebook thanks to following Neil Gaiman's page:

I think it's one of his better songs.  I haven't really liked much of his stuff since Amish Paradise and the Star Wars version of American Pie.

I love this one!  Looks like they all had so much fun making the video.  He looks amazing too!  Hasn't changed a bit.

I heart Weird Al.  Some of the lyrics sounded like thread titles from E-hell.  He knows his tacky!

If you like that one, take a look at his version of Blurred Lines. It's called Word Crimes and is also wonderfully brilliant.

I am amazed at his ability to rhyme; he's got a set near the end of linguist, distinguish, and english. Fantastic!

Ah-ha, Weird Al has a new CD.  It was mandatory for me to order Mandatory Fun immediately.   :)

Yeah, it released today. My husband has also declared it mandatory. Our oldest already added it to her Spotify.

He's also posting a video from his new album to his site every day for the next week or so.  Woo hoo!  New Al videos!  I'm very excited.

I posted the "Word Crimes" video link in the Grammar thread.  ;D

Thanks for letting me know that!  "Eat It" will always be one of my very favorite videos.

These videos significantly brightened up a very stormy day.  That's so much for posting the links.
