What makes this song so good is "The Humpty Dance."

Greatest song ever.

Really?

The full version of The Humpty Dance is great. Digital Underground was good. Even in a Dan Aykroyd movie.

Found this on youtube today.

"Polka Your Eyes Out" as performed by a children's dance group

File this under strange places to see Al's music show up. Also, "Cradle of Love" is extra creepy when performed by little girls. :lol:

Wow, pretty cool find!
Really good performance by the kids too. It's a shame their music teacher is so bad at audio editing. Seriously, how did they think that second transition was at all passable?

It always bugged the CRAP out of me that he changed the lyrics of "Ice Ice Baby" - 'Check out the beat' rather than 'hook.'

Any reason for that??

MAYBE it was a reference to how Vanilla Ice claimed he changed the melody to Under Pressure by changing one note... but I doubt that's the reason.

I feel like he also got the line in Polka Power! wrong from the Smash Mouth song when the original lyric is "allow if you're still alive, six to eight weeks to arrive". I'm reasonably sure he says "but now if you're still alive, six to eight weeks to arrive"... which doesn't make sense.

Likewise - in The Hot Rocks Polka, he says "If I could stick my hand [rather than 'pen'] in my heart".

I've just found out that back in 1993 "Polka your eyes out" was really popular in Lithuania due to some guy dancing ridiculously through it in a comedy show. It sort of became a viral video of that time :lol: .

Youtube

It was so popular that one radio station made a whole episode of a show called "back to the 90s" about it. The host/announcer/guy (how do you call a person talking on a radio?) explains what "Weird Al" Yankovic is by describing "Fat" video in unecessary detail and yet failing to mention that Al is still doing his thing up till this day (well I guess it was off topic for a show about 90s...). He pronounces his name so ridiculously (something like "Werd El Yankovich") I was giggling all the time.
I found it while I was doing my regular check up on Lithuanian part of the web to see if they finally discovered Al (not really).
