Lots of Weirdness

Posted by shanoah on July 31, 2008

You know what Sex (I’m A) reminds me of, Sean?

Like a lot of things, Weird Al Yankovic. Specifically, this Polka from his “In 3d” album:

Polkas on 45

Yes, one of the songs in his Polka Medley for this album was “Sex (I’m A)”, and I’m certain that’s where I first heard it.

Of course, Al’s always been a bit off the deep end.

And if you’ve heard his concerts, you may know he also plays medleys of old and unreleased music of his at them. More on that in a minute.

But first, a commercial break:

Got Milk? (The Weird Al Show)

All right, I’m back. And now for a recording of a screen at Dementia 2001 that was showing a medley from a Weird Al concert in 1997. In two parts:

Weird Al Medley 1997 – Part 1

And Part 2

The songs, in order, are:

Laundry Day*
Chicken Pot Pie*
My Bologna
Syndicated Inc
Another One Rides The Bus
Gee I'm A Nerd
Achy Breaky Song
Phony Calls
Cavity Search
Green Eggs & Ham*
Eat It

I think “Gee, I’m a Nerd” in here is just great. Oh, and Chicken Pot Pie never made it onto a cd simply because Paul McCartney, as a vegetarian, didn’t want it on an album.

Silly, really. I’m a vegetarian, and I think it’s cool…
