“Everything You Know is Wrong”, is Al's loving tribute to They Might Be Giants. It's one of those songs where Al gets everything right. According to Al: My They Might Be Giants homage. What can I say about that? TMBG is one of my favorite groups. I know they don’t like the association with novelty music, but I’ve always admired their quirkiness. I tried to write a song sort of in their style, but perhaps even a little bit more twisted, and for fans of The Giants I put little references in here and there, little allusions to other songs of theirs, and I’m proud of that because it’s one of those songs where I think it definitely sounds like them, but it’s hard to pinpoint exactly which song it sounds like. A lot of my pastiches are like, “Oh that’s sort of like this song mixed with that song,” and this one is a little bit harder I think to decipher exactly where the inspiration is coming from.

Going by the preview, are there no overdrive sections?

This is definitely my favourite Weird Al Track, and it is a great challenge for Pro Keys, which are great by the way. Thank you for making this.

If you have the ability you should record yourself playing and post to Youtube. Also I have many many many other challenging but fun pro keys charts in my legacy releases :)
