This is the most derivative thread I've ever seen.

Thanks for the Weird Al. I'm hoping there is a good chunk of his more original stuff to come throughout this. "Everything You know Is Wrong", "I wanna be your lover", "Jackson Park Express", "UHF", "You Make Me", "Melanie" and then maybe "Trapped in the Drive Thru"

 

Honestly, what you've already thrown up is awesome. Weird Al is always a great addition to anything. For anything you do in the future, in case I forget, thanks for the additions.  :awesome:  :awesome:  :awesome:  :awesome:  :awesome:  :awesome:  :awesome:  :awesome:  :awesome:  :awesome:  :awesome:  :awesome:  :awesome:

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

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "First World Problems

UDwgap4.jpg

 

Fun Fact: "First World Problems" is a style parody of The Pixies. This also happens to be my favourite song on “Mandatory Fun”!

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "Jurassic Park"

kZdtMD6.jpg

 

Thanks to Gigakoops with help on tempo map and beat track!

 

Fun Fact: Al had made the song Jurassic Park because he enjoyed making another classic rock song which combined a recent movie topic with it. That song was “Yoda”. The music video for Jurassic Park was created almost entirely of claymation. Here’s the song in Japanese cause why not? "https://www.youtube....h?v=bcEY9TPrAn8"

NO I WILL NOT CHART THIS IN JAPANESE THANK YOU FOR ASKING  :P

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "I Lost on Jeopardy"

BGLihpU.jpg

Fun Fact: This was the 4th music video Al had ever done, and it includes cameo appearances by Greg Kihn, the original song creator, Art Flemming, Dr. Demento, Don Pardo and Al’s parents, Mary and Nick.

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "Like a Surgeon"

ojoxN73.jpg

Fun Fact: The parody idea for this song was actually partly from Madonna. She asked her friend how long would it be until Al made “Like a Virgin” into “Like a Surgeon”. Al normally didn’t take suggestions for parodies from others, but he liked her idea so he went with it.

 

"Weird Al" Yankovic - "Polka Face"

vgxJ10i.jpg

Fun Fact: This was Al’s 10th polka medley. Each song section has a different animated style in the music video.

Told the wife just a couple of days ago that I was really hoping for "I Lost on Jeopardy" and she said she'd love to see "Like a Surgeon"!  Thanks so much for these, from both of us!

Fun Fact: This was Al’s 10th polka medley. Each song section has a different animated style in the music video.

 

If I remember correctly, this was also the Weird Al's first polka medley to get an official music video.  Of course there have been lots of good fan videos, especially if you don't mind watching ponies.

 

Thanks for another great batch of songs!

SO AWESOME. I have always loved his polka medleys, it's great to have another one.

 

You know to stay in line with the Weird Al theme, you'll have to make this a 27 part series. Here's to hoping!

Or maybe I stop the project after I have released 27 songs?! :o :P

That would also be acceptable... provided of course you later followed up with periodic batches of 27 additional songs each.

Hey guys, I was super busy this last week so I didn't have as much time for Part 3 but I'm hoping to get it out within the next couple of days! I'd usually like to get a pack out at least once a week or once every 2 weeks but I was just really busy the past week. Next pack is looking good though!
