MAJOR EDIT #1: Feedback noticed and most were fixed (suggestion courtesy of TMBJon) and for "Melanie", some could perceive it as an original, and some could perceive it as a style parody. I included "OR" to separate the confusion. All feedback will be taken into consideration. Thank you.
MAJOR EDIT #2: Added "UHF", "Off The Deep End", "Alapalooza" and the "Headline News" single. Slightly tweaked the formatting for AL-bums 1-5, and did a quick but thorough search on all the songs TMBJon mentioned was wrong and updated "Midnight Star", "That Boy Could Dance", "Nature Trail To Hell" and "Melanie" [as seen on the Weird Al Wiki, which is why I put (*WIKIA) after the information]
MAJOR EDIT #3: Added "Bad Hair Day", "Spy Hard" single & "Running With Scissors".
MAJOR EDIT #4: Added "Poodle Hat" and "Straight Outta Lynwood" with "You're Pitiful" single attached
MAJOR EDIT #5: Added "Alpocalypse". Also mentioning all the people who accurately lists the song(s) in each track.
MAJOR EDIT #7: Added "Mandatory Fun".

Only going to be posting official released Al albums and songs. [Including Spy Hard, Headline News & You're Pitiful]
Edits will be made (to put up another album's worth or two) every day I'm on [Monday-Saturday].
One small thing to note: I've not heard songs from some of the artists style-parodied [in the 1980s/1990s albums]; I'm just looking for the complete and FINAL update.

[P] indicates that it's a parody of a certain song
[SP] indicates that it's a style parody/pastiche/homage of a certain artist and song
[O] indicates that it's an original song by "Weird Al" Yankovic
[C] indicates that it's a cover of an official song
[POLKA] indicates that it's a polka medley

(*OLD) indicates that I found the information from an old packet I made in the mid-to-late 2000's [contains scattered list of what's a style parody or not that's not listed anywhere else]
(*WIKI / *WIKIA) indicates that I found the information on the song's album's Wikipedia page (WIKI) or on the song's Weird Al Wiki page (WIKIA)
(*WOWAY) indicates that I found the information through looking through the entire song's WOWAY forum page
"NO ARTIST/SONG SPECIFIED" indicates that people have not gone further into the song's style to figure out what exactly is style-parodied.

No way for any of these.
Especially the first three. Such A Groovy Guy is a style parody of an unreleased Weird Al song?

TMBJon, in the case of "Such A Groovy Guy" [check the corresponding WOWAY topic], the closest I could come to confirming what it is was a quote from Lazenby.

TheLazenby wrote:In the past, I've bemoaned the fact that "Never Met A Person As Wonderful As Me" never saw a studio remake... but perhaps it did.
"Such A Groovy Guy."
No, the songs aren't that similar, but does anyone else think that "Never Met" evolved into SAGG? Both are just Al bragging about how great he is. Sure, SAGG is considerably more harsh (the character changed from 'what an a-hole' so 'what a psychotic a-hole!'), but I can see how one might have become the other.

That's just TheLazenby's opinion though. Hardly definitive.

And what in the world is your connection between I'll Be Mellow When I'm Dead and I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, other than the similar titles?

Wow. A lot of these are tenuous at best. Yeah, the piano line from "Hold the Line" sounds kind of a little bit like the piano in "Midnight Star." And that's it. Al's style parodies can sometimes be difficult to decode, but when we figure them out (or when they're revealed to us) it becomes almost obvious. They don't just contain one element of one song.

I mean all you have to do is listen to five seconds of Jimmy Buffett's "Cliches" to know that one's wrong.
