Agreed. I mean, I can't fault him because he probably didn't even think he'd still have a recording career five years later, let alone that the polkas would be become a "thing," but knowing that there'd be an all-Stones polka four albums later, JJF feels ineffective in PO45.

Also "The Harlem Shuffle" is in "Polka Party!"

This used to be my least favorite polka (Rolling Stones is before my era), but recently I have been listening to it a lot, and it is quickly becoming one of my favorites! It's the most different of the traditional polkas as it is extremely fast and upbeat!

I love this one, especially how he says "HEY! YOU!" at that song. I've noticed he used a lot of Rolling Stones songs in this one. I wonder what it would be like if he used "Paint it Black" in it or did a parody of the song. :P

It'd probably sound like Paint It Black, but with more of a polka twist to it.

If he did a parody of it, it would sound the same but with different lyrics.

Wrong. He parodied "Paint it, Black" on Off the Deep End, and it actually sounded more like a Nirvana song.

I've noticed a lot of similarities between this and The Hamilton Polka. Some glaringly obvious, others not so much. Hell, the endings to these two polkaseparate are near identical! It makes me wonder if this is the OTHER polka that Al purposely arranged to be too complicated to play live. I can see Al doing that here simply because he knew he would be promoting UHF the film through interviews and press junkets rather than a concert tour for the soundtrack and he knew the next time he went on tour it would be for a different, newer album that he would create a newer, more current polka medley for that would play better to a live audience.
