I haven't been around the forums long enough to completely grasp the whole story behind Crazy Cow Therapist. It's sad, because I like to have fun and make fun of things, and I can't do it here. Anyone care to explain the joke?

What joke? Crazy Cow Therapist is a real Al song; one of the rarest of his rarities. (Right behind OOMO.)

See what I mean? This would be fun if I were actually in on the joke!

Yes, thanks again Dave! I really enjoyed this, and the commentaries on the top 20 were great too.

So it seems some people really did vote for CCT. Are the points shown the actual points that it earned or did you just make that up? How did you account for the "missing" points that were alotted to a fake song? Or am I wrong and nobody really voted for it?

I did some checking, and Running with Scissors is the only album to have all of its songs nominated. "Weird Al" Yankovic and Alapalooza are the only albums to not have any songs in the top 20. Running with Scissors, Dare to Be Stupid, and Even Worse all have the most number of songs in the top 20, each having three songs. Interestingly, all three Running with Scissors and Dare to be Stupid songs are in the top 10, two songs from Dare to be Stupid are listed back-to-back in the top 5, and all three Running with Scissors songs are ranked back-to-back-to-back.

Additionally, the top 10 list includes two songs each from Bad Hair Day, UHF, Poodle Hat, Off the Deep End, and In 3-D.

By In 3-D, I assume you mean Dare to Be Stupid. And by two songs, you mean at least two, except for BHD, UHF and OTDE which only have one. :P

Still that's interesting about RWS. I hadn't noticed that.

I should have just nominated the whole medley instead of picking one song from it.)
