"Weird Al" was, absolutely, included and important and for the first time, I recorded 3 all-new covers with accordion and vocals!
Who plays instruments other that an accordion (I mean other covers)?

BTW, you speaking voice is kind of sexy |) (don't get me wrong, your singing voice is also great, but it's quite different, so I thought it's worth mentioning).

MyBologna, not bad! -Your cover of My Bologna reminds me of Al's 1979 single.

Ten years ago (hard to believe it!), I posted a polka medley of 90% Al original songs (due to tempo restrictions/song choice, Smells Like Nirvana and Ricky made the final cut). I finally finished recording a decent-sounding, updated take that takes into account the albums that have been released since 2006... hope you enjoy!

And because there's no other appropriate name for it, it's called "Polka #27."

Ever since Al brought back "Melanie" at the 501st bash, I've been drawn to this song day after day. I decided to make a little piano arrangement for it.

Hey guys!

So I haven't done any Al songs onstage in 7 years, but tonight at a Holiday cabaret for a theatre group I work with I got to bust out the accordion and sing "The Night Santa Went Crazy"! :accordion:

Here's the video:

Covers of Al songs

Post by BeJimmieHourL »

Thank you so much, Shinureal Im doing the same thing with piano, and I know what you mean, its scary how quickly I forget songs, ha ha. I can spend a month learning them and then forget them in a couple weeks

DJcooltrainer, I actually dont have any sheet music, since I do all of my covers by ear, but if youd like I could send you some notes about the Dark Force song, at least, since its fresh on my mind.
