Speaking of Jurassic Park, it's quite a fun song... but it lost a lot of value for me when I realized that its parody target was, like, a billion times funnier than the end result.

The original Dumbledore singing a sad love-loss song in an incredibly hammy manner, whilst seriously overusing a metaphor about a lost cake? FOR OVER SEVEN MINUTES??? And it's a great song, too!
It doesn't matter if I do things for a reason, or on a W-H-I-M... Just stand back and enjoy the show, cuz baby, I perform this way!

Twister.
:censored: ing, Twister.
Ignoring the obvious, the song is too repetitive and annoying, and it REEKS with the late 80's. :annoyed:

I'm not familiar with 100% of his catalog yet as a latecomer. But I've liked about 99% of his catalog so far.

Only one I've heard that didn't do too much for me was "The Brady Bunch". It starts off all right, but the second verse is just him very haphazardly shoehorning the lyrics to the Brady Bunch theme into the melody, and it's just too forced to work. Also, he can't duplicate the synthesizer sounds of the original very well -- the song's too fast and I think even in a higher key than the original.

(Is it just me, or did he get a lot better at replicating the original sounds after ousting Rick Derringer as his producer?)

It's amazing how some of us could absolutely love songs that others loathe :lol: Like some of what others call the worst songs are some of my absolute favorites!
My list of what I perceive as the worst ones per album (or at least the ones I skip over the most):

WAY: Buckingham Blues (Gotta Boogie and Happy Birthday are close runner ups for me)
I3D: That Boy Could Dance
DTBS: Slime Creatures from Outer Space
PP: One of those Days (Don't Wear Those Shoes too tbh)
EW: Alimony
UHF: Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters from a Planet Near Mars (and Generic Blues)
OTDE: I actually don't dislike any of them, though Airline Amy is probably the weakest
Alapalooza: Ugh I can't decide between Young, Dumb & Ugly, Talk Soup, She Never Told Me She Was A Mime, Waffle King... not a fan of any of them
BHD: Another album where I can't pick one I really dislike. I'm So Sick of You maybe the weakest but even that I kinda like
RWS: Yet another that I just don't dislike any really. Maybe the Weird Al Show theme? Idk, I like them all haha
PH: Trash Day
SOL: Canadian Idiot/Virus Alert
Alpocalypse: Whatever You Like, Stop Forwarding That Crap to Me
MF: Sports Song

"Weird Al" Yankovic: Gotta Boogie, kinda Buckingham Blues and Happy Birthday
"Weird Al" Yankovic in 3D: That Boy Could Dance
Dare To Be Stupid: Slime Creatures From Outer Space
Polka Party: Christmas At Ground Zero, maybe Toothless People
Even Worse: Stuck In A Closet with Vanna White
UHF: Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters from A Planet near Mars, and kinda Generic Blues
Off The Deep End: I Can't Watch This
Alapalooza: Young Dumb & Ugly, kinda Talk Soup, SNTMSWAM, Waffle King
Bad Hair Day: Everything You Know Is Wrong (I actually don't mind this song but I tend to skip it over other songs on the album), Syndicated Inc I like only for the accordion solo
Running With Scissors: Grapefruit Diet, maybe Germs
Poodle Hat: Trash Day, and I kinda don't like Couch Potato
Straight Outta Lynwood: Canadian Idiot, possibly Virus Alert
Alpocalypse: Craigslist (love the music, the lyrics bore me)


Omg I realized I posted on this forum 5 years ago, I love how some of my opinions have changed since then
