The Weird Accordion to Al
my obsessive song-by-song exploration of the recorded output of American pop parodist "Weird Al" Yankovic
Al’s here to distinguish what’s proper English in this infectious parody of Robin Thicke, Pharrell and T.I’s “Blurred Lines.”
Al has an important message about his team being great and yours sucking in this delightful, demented, wonderfully verbose spoof of college fight songs.
Al gets deliciously dark and conceptual in this conspiracy-minded parody of Lorde’s “Royals”
Al channels Southern Culture on the Skids to skewer our culture’s obsession with fame.
We begin our exploration of Al’s final studio album to date with this infectious parody of Iggy Azalea’s infectiously obnoxious smash “Fancy”
We come to the end of yet another album with a hilarious, epic Jim Steinman pastiche that finds an unusually grounded Al righteously unleashing his inner crank.
We hit another milestone as we explore Al’s naughty-nice tribute to his pals in Hanson.
Al gets ink-obsessed in this infectious parody of B.O.B and Bruno Mars’ “Nothin’ On You”
Al gets uncharacteristically political in a delightfully dark parody of Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA”
Al sets his satirical sites on the tabloids once again in this clever parody of Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me”
