Last album in my top 3, probably takes the 2nd place spot, here's why:

The Saga Begins: 10/10 - Amazing parody, everybody knows it. Still, one of the only parodies to not destroy the original. What a memorable summer when that movie came out. And this legendary ALbum.

My Baby's In Love With Eddie Vedder: 10/10 - Absolutely hilarious, great lyrics, accordion and I don't like Eddie V at all.

Pretty Fly For A Rabbi: 10/10 - One of the only Offspring tunes I could simply live without, Al's is amazing, one hell of a parody here.

The Weird Al Show Theme: 10/10 - Best theme song ever. Great Show, watched them as they aired and still today on DVD.

Jerry Springer: 10/10 - What more do you want in a parody, this is what parodies were made for. So well done.

Germs: 7/10 - Least favorite track on the album, still awesome though.

Polka Power!: 10/10 - Amazing polka, one of my favorites. Loved most of these songs that summer, definite Polka Power!

Your Horoscope For Today: 10/10 - Good god, what a masterpiece. Pure gold here, just incredible all around.

It's All About The Pentiums: 10/10 - What lyrical genius, my god, shows Puff whateva exactly how to do it!

Truck Drivin' Song: 8/10 - Not too bad at all, not the best.

Grapefruit Diet: 9/10 - Hilarious but not like the others on here.

Albuquerque: 10/10 - See Horoscope For Today! Plus Jims amazing delicious leads, could never get enough of that blazing guitar work!!

"Germs" is a style parody--are you referring to "Closer" as the original?

The whole album gets a 10/10 for me, except I would give Grapefruit Diet a 9/10, it's not bad, just doesn't seem as great as the others.

No sorry that was because I was burnt out. I actually meant to type it is my least favorite original on the ALbum but that it's a great style parody even though I don't prefer it compared to any of the other originals. The review got typed up 3 times 'cause this laptop is misbehaving and deleting stuff so each time the review got shorter, crappier and then I was just making errors. Good eyes on that!

1. The Saga Begins. Just the perfect song and subject to merge for a parody.

2,Albuquerque. I remember not knowing what to expect from this song the first time I heard it, and it totally blew me away! It's like having an extremely long phone conversation with Al,that never ends. Some of his funniest "lyrics".

3.It's All About The Pentiums. Not really being all that tech savvy, I don't suppose I even understand what he's talking about most of the time. But a good song & video.

4. Grapefruit Diet. Sort of the spiritual sequel to "Fat". I love swing music and it was fun hearing Al in that genre.

5.Polka Power! One of his best polkas since the 80's! After the Hip Hop/Grunge/Alternative dreck that made up the last couple polkas, there was actually some pretty good pop tunes represented here. Bonus points for including Matchbox 20's "Push". Every time one of my favorite bands makes it into an Al polka,it's cause for celebration!

6.My Baby's In Love With Eddie Vedder. Some excellent accordion work here. I wish Al would feature tracks like this more often. Never cared for Pearl Jam,so it's all good.

7.Germs. Being something of a Germ-phoebe, (Not "Howie Mandell" level,thankfully) I can get the joke. I still crack up with "It kinda upsets me".

8.The Weird Al Show Theme. My little brother was always impressed how Al switches from his "nerdy" voice to his "Serious!" voice during this song. Fun little ditty.

9.Pretty Fly For A Rabbi. Fun song. As a gentile,I'm guessing 60% of the jokes are going over my head,but still very funny.

10. Your Horoscope For Today. Kind of a lessor played track for me. I like the concept of Al having fun with the "horoscope craze",but I never really got too many laughs from it.

11. Truck Drivin' Song. Ditto above. I like the music. The lyrics are a little disconcerting...

12.Jerry Springer. Ugh. I guess it's better than Talk Soup,but that's like darning it with faint praise...
