"Ricky" is a duet with voice actress Tress MacNeille. It is a parody of the 1982 song "Mickey" by Toni Basil and a loving homage to I Love Lucy that finds a Cuban-accented Al crooning of both his wild desire and his eternal frustration with his daffy spouse. It’s a song whose affection for its source material comes through in every note but even in this cozy, nostalgic homage to our halcyon black and white past there’s a note of New Wave anti-consumer prickliness when MacNeille-as-Lucy reminds her hubby in one of the many meta lines dotting Al’s discography,  “Every day’s a rerun and the laughter’s always canned.”
