Greetings all! It’s that time of month again when we all get a little weird. No, not like that. Get your mind out of the gutter, but not too far. In honor of Valentine’s Day this month, the selection is “Wanna B Ur Lovr” from the album Poodle Hat.
The amount of innuendo, no matter how ridiculous, in this song is, well… ridiculous. It’s a great song filled with some of the cheesiest pick-up lines you’ll ever hear. To those of you not lucky enough to have seen Al perform this song live, you really are missing quite the experience. That would include the tiger print pants and sport coat he wears.
This song is a style parody of the artist Beck. Beck is perhaps most known for songs like “Loser” and “E-Pro”, and is known for playing a lot of the instruments in his music personally. If you have ever heard any of Beck’s music, and know this is a style parody of Beck, the song starts to make a little more sense. At the very least, it explains the instrumentation of the song.
I hope you all have a lovely Valentine’s Day, or Singles Awareness Day, whichever you may be celebrating. To those of you starting to see winter really set in here in the States, stay warm and safe. And of course, as always, stay weird!
