Happy Birthday

To the brilliant pop parodist Alfred Matthew Yankovic, better known as Weird Al.

He is 55 today and finally reached number one with the release of his album Mandatory Fun in 2014. Much deserved. He started on the Dr. Demento radio show and never looked back. He has so many wonderfully hilarious parodies that it is hard to single any out, but I have to highlight Foil from his latest album which is sung to the tune of Lorde's Royals. I liked it so much that I have previously posted it on this blog. 

Weird Al has said that Mandatory Fun may have been his last full length album and that he may focus his efforts on releasing singles from now on.
