Weird Al – Carrying The Song Parody Torch! [VIDEO]
Song parodies. I've loved them since I was a kid. Love hearing them and love writing them more!. Alan Sherman started my love affair in the 60's with song parodies. When I was a kid, this was a huge hit. It was everybody's favorite camp song "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah", a parody of a classical tune called "Dance of the Hours"
Fast forward to today.
Al Yankovic is on a roll. He has parodied everyone from Michael Jackson to …well, whoever! And that brings me to his newest release- "Mandatory Fun". In it, he parodies the likes of Robin Thicke (Blurred Lines), Miley Cyrus, One Direction and Pharrell Williams. Here's one of them.
Hysterical. Unfortunately, he doesn't parody a lot of country songs. (Gee, I wonder who's around to take up the slack?)

Weird Al - thanks for staying weird all these years and keeping parodies alive!
