I'll give the A Saga Begins piano intro's tempo map a try if you can send me the file(s).

Hey, if you want a venue guy, I'd like to throw what I know to you. Especially if "Bedrock Anthem" is on your list.


Hi, I'm Ryan. I author stuff.

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

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "Tacky"

ObPfK4W.jpg

Fun Fact: While filming the music video for “Tacky” which is one continuous shot throughout, Al had to rush down 5 flights of stairs and change clothes so that when he appears both at the beginning and end of the video his clothes are different. Also, Jack Black twerks in this video. I’d say he pulled it off!

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "Smells Like Nirvana"

JgD7HU8.jpg

Fun Fact: The lyrics “bargle nawdle zouss” came to Al when he woke up in the middle of the night. He wrote it down because he thought those words might be important some day.

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "I Love Rocky Road"

xZ1dEnY.jpg

Fun Fact: The ice cream in the music video was actually mashed potatoes because real ice cream would melt under the stage lights.

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "Your Horoscope For Today"

31TVPk7.jpg

Fun Fact: This song is from my favourite album of Al’s “Running With Scissors”. This song was discussed to be included in C3’s Weird Al 12 pack but never happened. Well now it’s here! NOTE: Horn section is charted on keys.

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "Let Me Be Your Hog"

vWVOGYl.jpg

Fun Fact: This is a song from Al’s movie “UHF” which I totally recommend checking out if you haven’t already. It’s one of my favourite movies of all time. This song appears on the radio in it’s entirety. NOTE: The song is actually 18 seconds long but due to Magma’s 30 second song limit, I had to end it at 30 seconds. I made this song as a joke because it’s so short and stupid but I thought I’d throw it in here. The difficulties represented in this file are false but I honestly just made it to troll my friends :P

 

Check back soon for Part 2! ;)

any weird al is always welcome!

 

Hoping to see some of those polka medleys, becuase medleys (and songs that change a lot like bohemian rhapsody) are always super fun on rock band

Smells like Nirvana and Rocky Road..........Excellent!  Hope to see Midnight Star sometime down the road which is one of my favorites of his original compositions.

Any chance that, as part of this project, we might get upgraded versions of the 1 or 2 Al songs in the database that don't have pitched vox/pro keys?

Possibly. I don't want to say anything right now as I have other songs lined up for release soon so if anything it probably won't happen for a while. And I would need the other authors permission to do that before I go do any of that stuff :)

I hope Bite Me is gonna make the cut, it's definitely Al's finest work as he uses a vocabulary that would make William Shakespeare jealous and an instrumental that the Beatles and Genesis together couldn't think of!
