The Weird Accordion to Al
my obsessive song-by-song exploration of the recorded output of American pop parodist "Weird Al" Yankovic
With the Kickstarter for the Weird Accordion to Al on, I figured it would be the perfect time to look back on my experiences following Al’s amazing tour last year.
With this landmark piece, we’ve reached another milestone: end end of Al’s studio albums! Huzzah! Go us! Now it’s book time!
Al’s parody of Pharrell’s monster hit is a wonderful exercise in bad taste.
Al channels the Pixies to satirize the infernal entitlement of the first world and their non-problems.
It’s a paradigm shift!
Al comes in like a wrecking ball on a zippy tour through the top hits of the early teens.
Al inhabits the mind of someone afflicted with Post-Traumatic-Silliness-Disorder in this wonderfully goofy Foo Fighters pastiche.
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.
