Mr. Popeil

Post by JEDM »

I've always liked this one; probably in my top favorite style parodies.

I've never been a fan of Mr. Popeil, to be honest. Probably among my least favorite songs of Al's if I had to choose, actually.

It's not a great song, but the level of detail within the song replicating the B-52's is impressive.

Yeah, Al did a great job nailing down the B-52's style, but the song itself is just OK.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

I really dig this song!
Especially the live version! (from the King Biscuit Flower Hour recording)
I couldn't tell a dirt clod from a plate of caviar.

This is a good song. Even though the song is about Samuel Popeil, I remember watching the Ron Popeil infomercials as a kid. I know I wanted to buy his stuff. I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
