Parody or Polka song you wish was on Mandatory Fun?

Post by spunkyandy »

I highly anticipated 'Carry On' by fun. to be either in parody form or on the polka track on Mandatory Fun. Wow, did I get that wrong! I can understand why he didn't use it, but I do love the accordion accompaniment. :pentiums: :accordion:

I kind of wanted to hear "Counting Stars" or possibly "Let It Go" in the polka, but I don't know where they'd fit.

Weird Al knows where everything fits.

I wish Al did a "Muse" style parody sometime in the future. Might be vocally challenging, but I believe in him :D

I'll admit, after Well Well Well released that fake polka tracklist a few months ago...I was disappointed to find that Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" was NOT included in "NOW That's What I Call Polka!"

I've said this before and I'll say it again. I would've gladly traded a "Blurred Lines" parody for a parody of either "Story Of My Life" and "What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction.

I'm happy with the album and thought Al did a fine job with "Best Song Ever" in the polka, but before the album came out I would've preferred Al went a little harder on One Direction and relegated "Blurred Lines" to the polka. I will admit "Word Crimes" is growing on me quite a bit lately.

I had thought Adele would have at least gotten polka treatment.

It would have been cool to here a "Problem" parody or polka, same with Dark Horse, Any of Taylor Swift's new songs, and if not the let it go parody, maybe in include it in the polka, a little more direction would have been fun, surprised Al hasn't done any Adele yet.
