‘Weird Al’ Talks About Parodies, Plus Bonus New Music!

So you heard earlier this week that the man, the myth, the legendary parody maker ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic has returned to the airwaves! I know you’re as excited as I am so I couldn’t wait to share another release off his new album as well as a great interview with Yankovic which talks about making his parodies and specifically why he’s never parodied “The Boss” Bruce Springsteen.

“Either the timing wasn’t right or he didn’t have a big enough single at the time my album was coming out. Or I just flat out couldn’t think of a clever enough idea for one of his songs. So, yeah, that seems like a glaring omission, but I never got around to doing that. But it’s not because he doesn’t have a good sense of humor, he’s got a great sense of humor.”

You can catch the full interview recap with Yankovic in the below video or click HERE. And of course I insist you check out the video above of one of his new singles ‘Tacky’ which parodies Pharrell’s ‘Happy’. Welcome back ‘Weird Al’, welcome back!
