    Wierd al for those who dont know makes parodys of songs that are hits at the time! He is about to tour australia with a follow up tour of the U.S. He recently had a new album come out but one single didnt make it onto the album. A parody of James Blunts "Your beautiful". The song is great in classic wierd al fashion.

    If you would like to check it out go to his website and scroll down to the bottom for a free download of the single.

    Aw gee, thanks for a trip down memory lane ! :)

    Our son liked Weird Al and he had a lot of Weird Al tapes, when he was growing up here.

    Then one year, while our youngest daughter was looking for something weird/unique different to stand out from the crowd for her try out, for her elementary school talent show.

    Weird Al did his parody on Addicted to Love with Addicted to Spuds. :)
    I suggested to my youngest, if she is really looking for unique weirdo comic, she could do a song and dance to Addicted to Spuds. ;)

    She agreed. So I made her a huge hand sew outfit outfit. She went on stage in front of everyone dressed like a lil cute Idaho potato spud with only her own feet showing, singing and dancin to 'Addicted to Spuds'. :)

    hey now...SHE WON FIRST PLACE in each.. with her own talent, singin dancin and also won first place in costume design uniqueness, in said elementary school talent show ! LOL

    {my son probably will get the new CD anyhow too, he still likes weird al}

    I got tickets from work for his show a few years back. He had a guy working the crowd (goofing on people walking in, playing pranks on people sitting down, etc) and his show was actually pretty solid.

    I believe the first wierd al concert i went to was back in 1992 at the california state fair. Between galaghar opening with his smash amatic and wierd als videos running in the background while he sang his songs. it was a great show! In the middle of a couple songs he had the actual singers of the songs he was doing the parody on make guest appearances and sing along with him.

    Thats a memory that will last me till the day i leave this world.

    Seems kind of silly that Atlantic balked at giving permission for the "You're Beautiful" parody, when the actual artist did not. :-/
