So, who was caught off guard the first time they heard this? I got the album when it was first released and it was one of my first CDs EVER. So since I didn't have a whole lot of experience with CDs, I fell for the gag right away. I immediately thought to go to the store and ask for a replacement.

But then, I looked at the liner notes and saw that there were no lyrics listed for the song, so I knew it must have been intentional. I think the gag would have worked better if they included complete, phony lyrics in the liner notes. Then, everyone would really think there was a mistake on the disc and they'd run out to the stores and demand replacement copies only to find that their replacement had the exact same mistake on it! :lol:

That is my all-time favorite Al song.

Seriously

Well, maybe not absolute favorite, but it is in my top 3.

And it is in the movie UHF when Uncle is floating on his raft in the pool and Mr. Big calls.

Actually, pretty much knew about this when I bought the CD, because I saw UHF. But, it used to confuse me that when the song stopped, She Drives Like Crazy would start, and there's almost no blank space between the songs, so whenever that song would start, I thought I was still on Let Me Be Your Hog! It was only for the first couple listens, but I caught on!

I didn't have a problem with the song "coming out of nowhere". I think I'd seen UHF a few times before I bought the cd, so I knew about it already. I like this song! The end always cracks me up! Especially the needle ripping across the record! :D

4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

I think I bought the CD before I saw the movie. I don't remember, to be honest. It was a long time ago. But in the movie, the song doesn't cut out like it does on the album. It just stops when Harvey turns the radio off.

Yeah, I thought about that after I posted. I guess that's why I like to hear the ending on the cd.

I remember vinyl records and I'm only 28. I do remember having a record player.

When I bought the UHF soundtrack (I hadn't seen the movie yet...actually I didn't even know the movie existed. I bought the CD in like...3rd grade), I thought Let Me Be Your Hog was the best song on the entire album. Seriously. I loved it. It was so hilarious. Whenever I put that CD in, I always went to that song first.
