Is anyone else a fan of his?

Just heard 'A Complicated Song' which is almost as funny as 'Amish Paradise'. :O

If not Wield Al then whats your favourite comedy music track?

Yer i used to be a big fan but that was years ago My favourite song was called hororscope i think. Now for comedy i like Rodney Rude.

Just downloaded "The EBay Song" by Weird Al from Google. The lyrics are hilarious, with a very catchy tune. One of Al's best

Dr Hook had some good stuff. Penicillin Penny, Cover of the Rolling Stone, Freaker's Ball spring to mind...:ok:

'Kinko the Clown' is my favorite.

Someone who can get a laugh out of a song about a pederastic child killer is truly weird, yes.

I think he's mining the same vein of humor as Tom Lehrer, just taking it all a bit further. I wonder what Professor Lehrer makes of Weird Al.

Ah! Seoul!

Weird Al - awesome. The video to 'Amish Paradise' needs to be seen! "Baby got jack! (I like small butts)" is my favourite.

Kevin Bloody Wilson - good in his time, but a bit samey - there's only so many times a singer saying 'c*nt' can be funny.

The Macc Lads - unbeatable for sheer crudeness! 'No sheep 'till Buxton' and 'Buenos Aires / Buenos Aires '90' are 2(3) of their best.

Frank Zappa, RIP, did a few brilliant numbers... Titties and Beer, Camarillo Brillo and Dynamo Hum are old favorites that come to mind. Also an incredibly talented guitarist.
