Since I grew up with music videos on MTV, I grew up with Weird Al. And I love him. Here are my all time favs, with brand new tracks making the list!

    Parody of 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams

    Al is the king of not overthinking things. With what does the title rhyme? Or sort of rhyme. Tacky? Great. Fill in the blanks.

    Weird Al Yankovic

    Parody of 'Royals' by Lorde

    Whenever there is a really deep message in a song, we can count on Al to turn it into something that couldn't matter any less. Foil? Who cares? I do. Because it's funny.

    Eat It

    Weird Al Yankovic

    Parody of 'Beat it' by Michael Jackson

    I listened to Michael as much as one could when I was a kid. When it was time for something else, I was glad there was Weird Al, that sounded enough like Michael for me to get my fix and crack up at the same time.

    Smells Like Nirvana

    Weird Al Yankovic

    Parody of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' by Nirvana

    A tip of the hat to the fact that they could have been saying anything. Jalapeno? A mulatto? La-dee-da-ya. Who knows what the heck they were saying, but I know what Al was saying, and it is funny!

    Weird Al Yankovic

    Parody of 'Bad' by Michael Jackson

    Another Michael song, another parody about food? Like I said, Weird Al keeps it simple. Plus, the similarities between 'Beat It' and 'Bad' are there, so it stands to reason that the parodies would be similar.
