A brief history of Weird Al's polka medleys
« on: June 16, 2011, 11:25:44 AM »


Although Al is known for his lyrical parodies, the brilliance of the polkas is that they expose current pop songs' silliness simply by changing their genre. For over 25 years, they've been staples of his albums. In honor of the just-released "Polka Face" (oh yes he did) from Alpocalypse, which comes out Tuesday, we present a brief history of Weird Al's polkas.

I know I am posting in an old thread, but listening to a few of Weird Al's songs, it seems like he might be a skeptic. Has anyone heard anything definitive?

If is doesn't know about organized skepticism, I would suspect he's one of those people who "didn't/doesn't know he's a skeptic."
