“I Remember Larry.”

I Remember Larry, Weird Al Yankovic

This is pretty much going to be a no April Fools’ Day zone again this year. At least, in posts.

“The Saga Begins.”

 

The Saga Begins, “Weird Al” Yankovic

The nice thing about this song is that once you hear it, you no longer actually have to watch Episode I.  Would that Weird Al had done the other two movies, too…

The Polkas of Weird Al Yankovic. One after the other.

Go pee first: you’re going to be watching this for a while.

“Close but no Cigar.”

This one goes out to the President.  Just couldn’t close that sale tonight.

Close But No Cigar, “Weird Al” Yankovic

Such a shame, and mind the video: it’s a bit… roughish.
