This is a favorite of mine because it's the lead track to one of my favorite albums. The words are very clever. He does a pretty good job with that Amish accent, and I like how he uses the cool new words at the end but still in an Amish accent. This is also one of his first raps when rap was really popular. This kind of showed me that I actually do like rap. I usually just don't like the words or singer. When I heard "Gangsta's Paradise" for the first time, I was disappointed. I like how Al changes the words in the chorus. Koolio, on the other hand, just says the same thing over and over: "We've been spending most our lives livin in a gangsta's paradise. We've been spending most our lives livin in a gangsta's paradise. We've been...etc." The music video is one of my favorites. It's very funny. I love how Steve's sun dial stops working. Also, the reversed scene amazes me. It had to have been difficult to learn to say all of the words backward to the correct tempo. Okay, I'm done now. I like this song...

This song will always be special to me because it was the first Al song I ever heard, back in 1996. It launched me into casual fandom, and prompted me to buy BHD, and to see Al live for the first time. Without Amish Paradise, I might not be an Al fan today.
I agree that it's not Al's best song, but it's a very good one. It was very cleverly done, and it really increased Al's popularity.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

I think this just might be Al's best song. Very good.

OMG! That's the very same year I became a fan! :o Wow! I was six and Katrina was seventeen, and we were having a sleepover. She randomly decided to introduce me, as my older uncle Kent had done for her, and I became a "casual" fan as well. It was eight years later, when the very same aunt, then 25, casually asked me if I wanted to go to a Weird Al concert. I vaguely remembered the old videos, and agreed. ((Besides that Jace had been trying to convert me to fandom for almost a year beforehand.)) The concert blew_me_away, and I bought OtDE and Alapalooza, got a copy of the tape of videos, and joined this forum, and became a major fan. Katrina is now 26, and I am now an obsessive fan and Al-Gal.

Wow, sorry I had to go into that huge origin story thing... :lookaround:
Are we playin' horseshoes, honey? No, I don't think we are...
