You're Pitiful...

It's a parody of James Blunt's "You're Beautiful" which was slated to go on Al's last CD but Blunt's legal team wouldn't allow it. (James Blunt, however, was pleased with the song) so Al decided to offer it for free on his website! (scroll all the way to the bottom)

Ha ha, thanks Al, and screw Atlantic Records.

Weird Al's a genius.

Got to love Al. He is a parody genius. And to find a loophole around the suits - great, just Great..

I love this song, but this has been available for a long time now and he frequently sings it at his concerts. I also seem to remember him letting you download "Don't Download this Song"

Your Pitiful? Pitiful spelling I guess is what it refers to. Unless it's refering to something of mine...but I don't think it does.

Met him once, at a video store opening, when video stores were a new idea.
Really nice guy. Even though it was the end of the day, his manager had to tell him to stop talking to us and go home!
Maybe 25 years ago?
I have a great picture of Al and us with my toddler daughter looking at him like he was a space alien!

That one has been around for a while, it's a good song. I just saw Al in concert about a week ago. At one point he had on a shirt that read "Atlantic Records (still) sucks!" Great show by the way.

I would've thought his site would've been better constructed. hrmm.

Don't you just hate grammar Nazis?

Fair point. I have seen blogs done better. That being said would it really be weird Al if it was a flashy website ?

I might just have to pickup The Essential "Weird Al" Yankovic CD!

he released his version of 'whatever you like' as well which is also hilarious. leave it to al to take on our economic situation

His twitter feed, @alyankovic, is also really good.

I just have to say, I really admire this guy for always being different. I'm sure there were points in his career were people around him tried to convince him to go more "main stream" in his music choices, but he stuck to what he loves. Gotta love a guy like that! GO AL!
