I've heard the name, but I wouldn't know him from the guy who cuts my grass. Nor do I think I know any of his songs. Any idea what song might be the parody target? I'm not so optimistic about this one as I am the other three confirmed parodies, but I'll give Al the benefit of the doubt and listen with an open mind. I'm hoping it's not another "Trash Day."*

IMHO, Usher isn't anything special, and I don't think any of his songs are good targets
for a parody, but I'm sure that whichever songs Al chooses to use, he'll make something awesome out of it.

Usher's hit "Yeah" was one of the biggest songs of last year. I think it is a great choice for parody actually.
Dave, check into that song, which I am almost certain will be what Al is parodying.

Even I've heard "Yeah!" (although I didn't realize that Usher sang it until recently. . .up until now I knew it existed, but basically just ignored it.)

Good parody target, though.

Those of you who don't recognize the song Usher "Yeah" I think you'll find yourselves in mrmeadows' position when you finally hear it. You've probably heard the song (at the very least, the msuic is one of the most memorable/catchy tunes in recent memory). I'm very interested in hearing what Al does with this, especially the Ludacris portion.

I have personally hoped for a parody of Yeah! for some time (since before AL started recording for this album). Also, IMHO, I think AL should actually write a song about himself called Al! Listen to Yeah! It sort of lends itself to a parody about Al and TBITB.

I really don't get the appeal of Usher. But of course working with kids it's impossible not to know who he is. Kids (especially girls) absolutely Usher these days. To me he's pretty mediocre compared to other artists on the hits radio stations, though. I agree that it's almost certain that "Yeah" will be the song parodied.

Now the question is what the heck rhymes with "yeah" that Al could repeat several times and make into a funny chorus? :lol:
