“Weird Al” Yankovic – Perform This Way

Published July 27, 2011 - 4 Comments

I personally think that Weird Al is a highly under-rated genius.  It’s too bad that he doesn’t get any love from radio.  Well… there might be some comedy-centric stations somewhere that play his stuff, but it should be more mainstream than it is.  Thankfully, we have the internet now!

I read that Lady Gaga initially turned down the request to parody her Born This Way song.  I don’t know what changed her mind… maybe she woke up with a sense of humour one morning… instead of that sense of dreadful ….  style?  I’ve gotten to the point that I don’t really care much about Gaga anymore.  I was initially sucked in by her weirdness, and I’d turn to Vevo whenever she released a new song, so I could watch her video.  Not anymore.  I will admit… I’m still okay with her music, but I don’t have any interest in seeing what she looks like anymore.  Maybe it was the meat dress?  I dunno… She’s different, but I’m focusing on the music… and not the Gaga experience.

I think Weird Al got this one perfect!
