I love this song too! I love listening to it really loud while driving and some of the looks I get when the car next to me actually listens to the words is priceless.

It is a good song. Very random and bizarre humor. Its this kind of humor mixed with his other types of humor that make him "Weird Al.

I love this song too...

the bari sax solo in the middle is great

anyone else notice that he does the entire last verse in one breath...

or is it just editing?

Don't wanna start a new topic, so I'll post here [it kinda fits, anyway! :P]
I guess everything I thought I knew WAS wrong! See.. I was playing around with several tracks in Cool Edit Pro [an audio mixing software], and when chosing the remove-vocals feature, I listened to EYKIW.. and got a surprise during the bridge. When the accordion normally plays, you can clearly hear "Do" on every beat. Before, it seemed like some random instrument, but.. Yeah. And at the sax part, there's a deep voice [I'm pretty sure they're all synthetic voices, but then again..] going "la la la" to the same melody as the sax and guitar. Quiiiiiite clearly. And yet, I barely noticed it at all the first time I heard it. Maybe it's just me, but.. I dunno, it just stood out so much. Yeah, I get excited easily :lol:

edit: you can listen to the modified version here

Wow. I never noticed that before, either. Very interesting.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

Everything you know is wrong is one of my favorite originals. I love the lyrics, so random, so great.

Wow, that is freaky! The do do part is funny sounding. Now that I listen to the regular song I can hear the do dos.

Anyway, I really like this song. It's one of my favorite origionals. It's got the accordion, the baritone sax (I learned what that was from reading here), and it has continuous random lyrics that I like.

This song is one of my favorites too. Its so pointless and random that its funny. I love listening to it while my mom drives fast and I just hop in my seat.

EDIT: I listened to the modified version and it sounded so awesome. I never noticed some of the sounds. I didn't even the notice the "Do"s and "La"s until then.
