I edited and updated TMBJon's point-outs and added everything from "UHF" to "Straight Outta Lynwood". At the bottom, I mentioned I still have at least 10 more originals' WOWAY subjects to look through (100s of pages), so updates for "Alpocalypse" and "Mandatory Fun" won't be uploaded until I know for sure I got a solid list of style parody info to post. Thanks to all and I appreciate your feedback.

[yeah, decided to double-post instead of edit my recent post.]

My version of "The Ultimate Parody Guide" (containing ALL ALbum songs and most notable singles) is now complete. Like I said, any criticisms regarding the style parodies will be taken into account. Everything from " 'Weird Al' Yankovic" to "Mandatory Fun" is covered.

I actually just recently noticed that Al was right in calling "Biggest Ball of Twine" a parody of both Harry Chapin and Gordon Lightfoot.

I knew that the verses are obviously Chapin's "30,000 Pounds Of Bananas" - but it just hit me that the chorus is "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald."

"Christmas At Ground Zero" has a LOT of Yogi Yorgesson's "I Yust Go Nuts At Christmas" in it. The verse melody is identical.
