“Weird Al” Yankovic has been singing parodies since 1976. If you’re looking for a way to brighten up your day then just listen to some Weird Al!
“We were pretty much scared out of our minds. I was straight out of college, and all of a sudden they were flying me out to New York to perform live on national TV – The Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder. And I was wearing these horrible, crazy quilt velvet pants that a friend of mine had found at a thrift shop, and, you know, barefoot, frizzed-out hair. It was quite a look. Jon Schwartz is a serious talented drummer, and I had him on his knees poundin’ on my accordion case, blowing into duck calls, siren whistles. I mean, if you’re in my band you can’t have too much of a sense of dignity. (laughs)”
