Weird Al Yankovic’s Top 5 Original Songs [VIDEO]

Weird Al Yankovic is mostly known for his musical parodies. He’s been poking fun at pop stars for over 30 years and 13 albums. However, that is not all he does. Al also writes great original music. The originals are sill comedy records and are often style parodies. For example a super serious, angsty, grunge song about calling in for work.

So, as a public service I will now cull the wheat from the chaff, the curd from the cheese, the green peppers from the pizza, to bring you the best of the best: The Top 5 (maybe 6) Weird Al Yankovic Original Songs (in no particular order)!


Bob…This song from the 2003 album Poodle Hat is a Bob Dylan style song. A fun bit about this song is that the lyrics are palindromes; words or phrases that read the same in both directions.


The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota…I love this goofy, meandering, story song from the UHF soundtrack album. TWINEBALL OR BUST!


My Baby’s in Love with Eddie Vedder…This Cajun/Blusegreass song off the Running With Scissors album is the anthem for all us guys that grew up with crushes on the alternative, English lit girls at school.


Why Does This Always Happen to Me?...Another track from the Poodle Hat CD. This song is a pitch perfect satire of music made to capitalize on tragedies.


Everything You Know is Wrong…From Bad Hair Day, Al teaches us the proper use of time travel.

Maybe 6)

CNR…Number maybe 6 on the list is a song off the latest album Alpocalypse. It’s a White Stripes style ode to the star of one of my favorite X-Files episodes: Charles Nelson Reilly.
