I decided to post this topic because, suprisingly, there isn't much other topics about any of Al's polkas. In fact, the only other one I saw was "Polka Party!". Everyone can use a bit more polka in their life :D

This is one of my favorite polkas. Anyone else think it was particuarly good?

I think it's great! It brings back so many memories from the '90s every time I hear it. Also, it's the only polka that I have ever found a midi for.

Yeah the nineties had some great music and Al really did a great job covering the best of the best of the nineties- all in one song.

My favorite is "Bohemian Polka"! Least favorite is probably "Angry White Boy", 'cause I never heard most of the songs.

Huh...I kinda thought Angry White Boy Polka was one of his best ones (well except for Alternative Polka) but that's just your opinion...not mine hehe ;)

I'm just the opposite of Lazenby- hate Bohemian and love Angry White Boy....wait, it sounds like I'm some kind of bigot! :blink:

Yeah...I'm not too big a fan of Bohemian Polka. All it is is Bohemian Rhapsody to a polka. Not that that is bad, but it's just not as creative as Al can be. :D

Hey did you notice in that last post I had, that I had 2 words right next to each other twice. "All it is is Bohemian Rhapsody..." and "Not that that is bad...". I just thought I'd point that out because it doesn't happen to often :P hehe

It doesn't help that I hate Bohemian Rhapsody. Not that that ( ;) ) should make me dislike the Al version- I love Achy Breaky Song, and hate Achy Breaky Heart, so that's not the explanation. I didn't like it when Constantine did it on American Idol, either, even though I have to admit both he and Al do their versions beautifully. But it's the only Al polka that I don't like.
