Greatest Hits (Cassette) ~ Weird Al Yankovic (Artist) Cover Art

Greatest Hits (Cassette)

By: Weird Al Yankovic (Artist)



Weird Al Yankovic Artist Snapshot:

The undisputed king of the parody song, accordionist/singer/comedian "Weird Al" Yankovic has recorded send-ups of songs by popular artists as wide-ranging as the Knack, the Kinks, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Nirvana, and Eminem. His seemingly simple jokes ("My Sharona" becomes "My Bologna"; "Beat It" to "Eat it") are actually supremely crafted interpretations that zero in on the tiniest details of the original songs and videos. Yankovic's parodies continue to entertain--especially the artists that provided the source material for his jokes--decades into his career. His 2006 album, STRAIGHT OUTTA LYNWOOD, (featuring the Chamillionaire parody "White & Nerdy") cracked the Billboard Top 10 shortly after its release.

Product Notes

Favorite topics on this collection of Weird Al classics include food and medical problems. Superstar Michael Jackson gets sent up twice: "Bad" is transformed into "Fat" and "Beat It" becomes "Eat It," a hit in its own right. Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" is turned into a paean to potatoes, "Addicted to Spuds." And Los Lobos' version of the durable "La Bamba" is reconfigured into "Lasagna." Madonna's "Like a Virgin" becomes a song about a different kind of beginner on "Like a Surgeon," while James Brown's "Living in America" is parodied on "Living with a Hernia." If you want to take a funhouse mirror trip back to the 1980s, Greatest Hits is a good way to do it. Produced by rock & roll veteran Rick Derringer, who rocked out with Johnny and Edgar Winter and produced Meatloaf and Kiss. --Fred Cisterna
