Best Parody Target

Forgetting about the now well-known Weird Al parodies, which of these five original songs do you actually like the most?

None of these really do it for me, but Rock and Roll is alright.

In order:

I :inlove: Rock and Roll
My Sharona
Another One. Bites the Dust
Stop Dragging My Heart Around

In 1983, these were all "modern" songs, but they're all classics now. The one I like the most is "Another One Bites the Dust".

Another batch of solid choices, I don't think there's a bad one in the bunch.

Gotta go with Queen, though. Definitely.

My rankings (best to worst):
1) "Another One Bites The Dust"
2) "I Love Rock N Roll"
3) "My Sharona" (2 & 3 are somewhat interchangeable, depending on my mood)
4) "Mickey"
5) "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around"

I like Queen as much as the next guy, but I went with Joan Jett.

I love 'I Love Rocky Road'. It's just so fun to head bang to.
