I got to thinking about Weird Al recently after hearing him do a Lady Gaga parody. It's easy to write this guy off as a goofball, but no doubt over the years he's brought a smile to many a face. As far as faves go, lots of folks would likely say MJ's "Eat it" or Coolio's "Amish Paradise"

However mine is the skewering of Kurt Cobain's sometimes unintelligible singing and that classic video <pretty ****ing funny

My favorite stuff was his non-parody music. That's Your Horroscope for the Day, The Night Santa Went Crazy, and Albuqerque were all amazing.

White and Nerdy was pretty funny.

My favorite Weird Al moment is when Coolio got ridiculously upset when he did his parody of Gangsta Paradise...

Damn... That is a tough one. He has so many that I like it's not funny. I guess I will go with this... But that is only for the sake of this thread:

The "I'm Fat" spoof of Michael Jackson's "I'm bad" is my favorite video. Watch the I'm bad video first then I'm fat, it's hysterical.

I don't think I ever had a favorite but Weird Al rocks! I used to love to listen to him and Ray Stevens as well. Anyone remember him??

I forgot all about Ray Stevens.... don't think his performing or videos were/are the caliber of Mr Yankovic's but he definitely had his moments like "Ahab The Ayrab"

Amish Paradise . . . Man this was some funny ****. From the imitaing of Coolio's hair to the water running down his face like it was with the fat guy singing and the sweat running from his face. Classic parody from Weird Al

I can't even begin to think about what the crowd at a Weird Al concert looks like. I can't get this image of carnies and hobos head banging out of my mind...

I have seen him twice. All you have to do is imagine a Sci-Fi convention crowd minus costumes.
