Can you name the Weird Al parody?

You know the tunes, now guess the spoofs!

We'll say it... Weird Al Yankovic might just be THE great American.

While that's probably up for debate, Al's lasting impact on comedy music is undeniable. Beginning in 1979, Yankovic has taken some of the most popular songs in music history and made 'em all whacky.

So, what about you? Are you weird enough to know the parody versions of the following songs? We'll list the real ones, and then we'll give you three choices as to what the "Weird" version is.

  1. Michael Jackson - "Beat It"
  2. Huey Lewis and the News - "I Want a New Drug"
  3. Madonna - "Like a Virgin"
  4. Robert Palmer - "Addicted to Love"
  5. Tiffany - "I Think We're Alone Now"
  6. Los Lobos - "La Bamba"
  7. The Offspring - "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)"
  8. James Blunt - "You're Beautiful"
  9. Chamillionaire - "Ridin' Dirty"
  10. Lady Gaga - "Born This Way"

One of the all time favorites is Amish Paradise with Mrs Brady Florence Henderson cameo.

'Fat' (Bad) was the best ever. Great video.

10/10 and I hadn’t heard most of these. I’d like to see a comparison between Weird Al and Svengoolie. In fact, Sven had a “Beat It” parody about a whole year before Al did (back from his “Son of Svengoolie” days).

La Bamba and Addicted to Love gave me pause until I remembered a common theme to a lot of Early work (even that might be a spoiler, hint)

You're Beautiful took me a second as well

Knew a bunch of these but also didn't know quite a few, too. I just had to put on my weird hat, and that seemed to work.
One of my favorite Weird Al songs, though not a parody, is this joyous, and totally hilarious, romp:

I'm getting "video unavailable" here. Which song are you talking about?

Yeah, sorry. You have to click on "Watch on Youtube" right below where it says it's unavailable. Enjoy Weasel Stomping Day(just don't watch if you are averse to some comic claymation graphic violence of weasels getting stomped on).

9/10. I know the earlier Weird Al songs but not the later ones. A lot of guesses.

9 out of 10. Have never heard #8. Smells like Nirvana is one of Al's best.

Yep, he makes fun of the stupid lyrics of Smells Like Teen Spirit! For the younger posters, Teen Spirit was a deoderant marketed to adolescent girls!
