“Weird Al” Is Back

“Weird Al” Is Back July 3, 2009

New style parody of the Doors about Craigslist from “Weird Al”, released just 2 weeks ago online.  The new album slated for next year is called Internet Leaks and he’s leaking the tracks himself one at a time as he gets them done apparently.

Youtube has busted Al’s monopoly on cultural parody:

As a parody songwriter, Yankovic has had some competition as sites like YouTube have grown in popularity. “That’s the biggest problem for me right now,” he says. “20 years ago when I was starting out I could be unique. I was pretty much the only guy out there doing these kind of parodies. Now if I get an idea for a song, I’ll check. ‘Oh, I wonder if anybody else on YouTube has had this idea already. Yes, 500 people have had that idea.'” But Yankovic fans shouldn’t worry that his comical spirit is broken. “I can’t let that stop me because I’ve still got my job,” he says. “So I trudge on ahead and I hope my parody is hopefully better than the others.”
