Biography

The time has come. “Weird Al” Yankovic, the biggest selling comedy recording artist of all time, has returned to demolish the pop landscape with Alpocalypse, his first full-length studio album in nearly five years.

Few would have guessed that Yankovic, who as an awkward, accordion-playing teenager got his start sending in homemade tapes to the Dr. Demento Radio Show, would ... Read more in Amazon's Weird Al Yankovic Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

These 4 discs present 50 songs from modern rock's most unique and prolific parodist, Weird Al Yankovic. The set is not spiked with outtakes, rarities, or live versions, so fans who already own the majority of Yankovic's catalog will likely want to shy away from this collection, unless they merely live to give money to Weird Al. In his own inimitable fashion, Weird Al skewers almost every major pop-culture trend and puffed-up, pompous pop star. The rest of the songs are celebratorily wacky ditties, the workings of a splendidly talented--and mildly twisted--imagination. --James Conde

As an American, i am probably more farmiliar with Al's music, and I must say these 4 CDs sums up his whole career... apart from the more recent albums, like Running With Scissors. Once you hear these songs, you'll forget the original lyrics, and whenever you hear the original song on the radio, you'll be 'singing al'!
A great buy.

Until very recently, I was under the impression that "Weird Al" was simply that guy that had a couple of hits in the late eighties with Michael Jackson parordies. This changed when I chanced on hearing the other parodies I had forgotten about. These songs such as "Achy Breaky Song", "Living with a Hernia" and "Smells Like Nirvana" are all included on this very comprehensive box set. The biggest suprise for me was the amusement brought by his parodies was completely overshadowed by the hilarious original songs. Songs like "The Biggest Ball Of Twine In Minnesota", "Good Old Days" and the brilliant "You Don't Love Me Anyone" may make you believe the the title of "The King Of Parody" doesn't give full justice to Weird Al's comic ability. I very much recommend this collection even if it's just you can see the look on the faces of everyone dancing along to "Christmas at Ground Zero" at the Xmas party before they actually begin to comprehend what the lyrics are saying.

If you like silly songs and parodys you will love this. He has a unique way with words and he throws all song writing rules out of thhe window. Al is not afraid to put the world in its place with songs like "Christmas At Ground Zero" and "Dog Eat Dog". However nothing you have ever heard will prepare you for his Polkas, fabulous arrangements of songs to a Polka tune. A must for any record collection and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
