Here are my Top 8. The first 3 were easy, but it got surprisingly difficult narrowing down #s 4-8. Skipper Dan BARELY edged out Good Old Days. . .

1. Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota
2. Your Horoscope for Today
3. One More Minute
4. Good Enough for Now
5. Dog Eat Dog
6. Waffle King
7. Genius In France
8. Skipper Dan

What a fun thread. I had to narrow down to 8 from 20, and I'm not even sure how/why I ended up with the 8 I did. I've found lately that I actually look more forward to Al's style parodies over polkas and parodies, so this list was definitely tough for me to limit to 8. Oh well I'm rambling now, so hope you enjoy it! ;)

1. Dare To Be Stupid
2. Frank's 2000" TV
3. Young, Dumb and Ugly
4. Germs
5. You Don't Love Me Anymore
6. Skipper Dan
7. CNR
8. Good Enough For Now

I'll do a Top 8...
1.) Hardware Store- A masterpiece. One of the only true original songs by Al, as it isn't even a style parody. The tool naming part is very impressive.
2.) Everything You Know is Wrong- Such a catchy song. I really like TMBG, so that might explain my love for this song. Even better, Nostalgia Critic and Linkara have used this song multiple times!
3.) Weird Al Show Theme- Something about this song. I don't know why I love it. And, it's short in sweet!
4.) Albuquerque- One of Al's funniest songs! I don't care if it borrows a lot from Dick's Automotive (in fact, I really don't like Dick's Automotive)!
5.) The Night Santa Went Crazy (Extra Gory Version)- I don't really mind the regular version, but they're both the same to me. I don't have a dark sense of humor, but this song is hilarious!
5.) Christmas on Ground Zero- Pretty dark song, but really catchy. I love Christmas music too, so this one does not disappoint.
6.) Skipper Dan- Creative and catchy. Not the funniest song by Al, though.
7.) Dare To Be Stupid- Funny and a great singalong song.
8.) UHF- Reminds me a lot of the movie, which, fun fact- I've never watched completely! Still, nice song.

I think it's a nifty challenge, just picking 8. Mine would be (in no particular order)...
BBOTIM, Good Ol' Days, Albuquerque, Mr. Frump in his Iron Lung, Bob, Germs, Truck Driving Song, and Good Enough For Now.

Ask me tomorrow, and you might get a completely different list, though.
