I have been a fan of Al Yankovic’s career from the first time I heard “The Saga Begins” back in 1999. So, as a true fan, I went out Tuesday and bought his newest, and last under contract, studio album: Mandatory Fun. I have listened to the whole CD a few times now, and have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. Admittedly, I do not love every song on the album, and I can sympathize with some fans longing for the good old days before YouTube made parodying a quick and multitudinous thing. None the less, I recommend the album and suggest checking out the videos Al is releasing all this week (8 videos in 8 days, starting 7/14/14).
Are you a Weird Al fan? If so, what’s your favorite song of his? Also, am I the only one that thinks it would be awesome if he, or at least someone, did full polka versions of some of the songs from the polka medleys?
