‘Africa’ (Weezer, starring Weird Al Yankovic)

Got turned onto this.

Africa, Weezer

That’s not Weird Al singing and that’s not Weezer playing, by the way: they’re lip-syncing to the actual song.  Also: the set is derived from Weezer’s Undone – The Sweater Song, for we are deep in the land of the Meta-Joke.  As one might expect from a project that involves both Weezer, and Weird Al.

Still: not bad.

Weird Al/Weezer does life cover of Toto’s Africa.

I’m gonna just say it.

The live Weezer cover was not that great, until Weird Al showed up.  Then it became great.  I’m sorry to say that, but in your heart you know it’s true.

‘Party in the CIA.’

OK, so it’s my ringtone.

Party in the CIA, Weird Al Yankovic

And, someday, hearing that will horrify someone.  I kind of look forward to that day.

Tonight is the last night of Weird Al’s tour…

…and if you missed it, I am legitimately sorry to hear that.  It has been, honestly, a triumph for Weird Al; by all accounts, he is honestly surprised that people would flock to hear songs like “The Night Santa Went Crazy” or “Your Horoscope For Today.” But we did. And it was worth driving in the snow at night in Washington DC to go see.

:pause:

Very little else is.

‘(This Song’s Just) Six Words Long.’

(This Song’s Just) Six Words Long, Weird Al Yankovic

This may be the single cruelest song that Weird Al Yankovic has ever written.  What makes it extra-cruel is that the criticism is spot-on, expertly presented, and issued by somebody who happens to be as musically gifted as George Harrison was. I’m impressed.

I may be missing tonight’s @alyankovic concert.

The weather’s getting worse here. The kids are already home early and they’re predicting rain turning to snow turning to maniacs on the road frantically trying to avoid the frozen-hell-rain of the angry sky gods. Because DC. So I may be missing this.

Yes, that absolutely sucks.  How is it it’s snowing? In Maryland? In March?

‘Foil.’

I really need to get a ringtone of this for my phone.

Foil, Weird Al Yankovic

Certainly my Illuminati character in Secret World Legends must have one.
