July 23rd 2016 - "Weird Al" Rock Band Part 1

 

 

July 30th 2016 - "Weird Al" Rock Band Part 2

 

 

 

August 10 - "Weird Al" Rock Band Part 2.5?

 

 

August 17 - "Weird Al" Rock Band Part 3

 

August 28 - "Weird Al" Rock Band Part 4

 

"Weird Al Yankovic - "Wanna B Ur Lovr"

wxvyIpc.jpg

Fun Fact: Al says this is one of his favourites to play live because the reaction from the crowd is different every time and he has so much fun seeing what the crowd will do every time he plays it.

The Hint: The hint was referring to the lyrics “Girl, you must be Jamaican, because Jamaican me crazy”. 

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "NOW That's What I Call Polka!

5Etslx1.jpg

Fun Fact: This is “Weird Al”’s 11th polka medley. The title is a parody of the “Now That’s What I Call Music!” compilation albums.

The Hint: The hint was referring to Al previously parodying “Achy Breaky Heart” by Billy Ray Cyrus with “Achy Breaky Song”, and “Party in the USA” by Miley Cyrus with “Party in the CIA”. This polka includes “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus. Hence, why this version sounds a little wackier :P.

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "Couch Potato"

7UccVLM.jpg

Fun Fact: This was going to be the lead single off of Poodle Hat, but Eminem didn’t want that because he was concerned it would hurt his career, you know what I’m sayin’? AS IF being a “Hardcore Alf fan” doesn’t hurt your career already! :P

The Hint: The hint was referring to the Al TV interview with Eminem where he kept saying “You know what I’m sayin”? And Al kept screaming at him to shut up.

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "You Don't Love Me Anymore"

1pec1j1.jpg

Fun Fact: This track has a hidden track at the end of it called “Bite Me”. Which then makes this track 14:07 according to Wikipedia! The music video is a parody of “More Than Words” by Extreme.

The Hint: The hint was referring to the lyrics “You know, I even think it's kinda cute the way

You poison my coffee just a little each day” This might be why Bret Michaels of Poison might enjoy this song over a hot beverage! :D

I've had Lame Claim To Fame in the works since I started to chart, if I can help on this one and a few others such as Genius in France , I'd be pleased!

I will probably take a look at Lame Claim to Fame seeing as I was eyeballing that one. Can you maybe PM me the RPP so that I can take a look? Thanks! Looks like we might have a solid collab going for Genius in France! When I get to the Poodle Hat stuff I'll ding you guys again!

Cool, really hoping someone finally agrees with me that When I Was Your Age would be a really fantastic Rock Band song.

Glad to see people are excited! Please keep in mind that I am only one person, so obviously I cannot do the entire discography, that's why it's the "Greatest Hits" project ;). With that said, the first release is looking great and I hope to have it out as soon as possible!

Great project.

Like I've mentioned here before, "Weird Al In 3-D" was the first music (back then...it was a cassette) that I ever purchased with my own money.  I was 7 or 8 years old.  He's an American icon, as far as I'm concerned.

 

After AJFOne23 gifted us with "Nature Trail to Hell"...it's all gravy to me.

If cornered, I guess I'd have to root for "I Lost on Jeopardy" to make the cut for this project.

This project is so awesome that I will probably think about it every day before I go to sleep. And then again when I wake up.

First pack should be released this weekend! It's getting done quicker than I thought so keep an eye out for it in the next couple of days! Prepare your kazoos and your armpits for doing armpit farts! ;)

Forget the "working for a living".  Forget the taxes.  Forget the imminently approaching death.

 

I've found that the worst part of growing up was that I somehow along the way lost the ability to make armpit farts.

Put some lotion on your armpits. Works for me every time.
