Best Parody Target

Post by TMBJon »

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

Had a tough time deciding. I really love most of the parody targets here. But had to go with Eye Of The Tiger.

Eye of the Tiger is possibly my favorite song Al's ever parodied, along with Lose Yourself.

In order:

Eye of the Tiger
Beat It
King of Pain
Jeopardy

If it had been a different Police song, probably that, but Beat It wins for me here.

Solid targets though. Not a bad song among them, imo
You have quickly thought up such matchless phrase?

In order:

1) "Beat It"
2) "King Of Pain"
3) "Eye of the Tiger" (2 & 3 may switch places, depending on my mood)
4) "The Safety Dance"
5) "Jeopardy" - Al's version is better remembered for a reason

As much as I love Beat It, Eye of the Tiger is my favorite. I love inspirational, Rocky songs!
