For those of you know Weird Al Yankovic has a new song called eBay a parody of some backstreet boys song or justin timberlake song. Still its funny check it out. Its on the latest album Poodle Hat. I saw him live in concert just recently and he did his song All about the Pentiums. All decked out in bling bling. He tossed a laptop into the crowd. Front Row seats i had Awesum show.

Most people in this genre of

Most people in this genre of music are "one hit wonders." Very few humorists have the staying power of Weird Al. He's been doing this for over 20 years and he's just as clever and just as thorough in his treatment of any subject as he was in the '80's! Truly prolific in his songwriting.

He's gotta go on the list of top humorists/comedians of the last 100 years for his satire on pop culture.

When I heard the Weird Al Eba

When I heard the Weird Al Ebay song for the first time a full year ago, I laughed my butt off. It is a total classic.

I saw myself on so many of the lyrics.

It's a parody of "I Want it T

It's a parody of "I Want it That Way" by the Backstreet Boys.

iTunes link:

Personally, I think the "Piano Man" by Billy Joel parody is better:

...but then again, I've never been very big on Weird Al.

Weird Al Yankovic Song for You eBayers out there

I love the eBay song! It's great. I love eBay, too, so I could defintely relate to it. However, I take issue with your comment about Al throwing a laptop into the crowd while singing "It's All About the Pentiums". I've seen Al in concert 4 times, and that song was performed at all 4 concerts. He didn't throw anything into the crowd, and simply wouldn't. He loves his fans, and wouldn't risk hurting any of them. I'm glad you enjoyed seeing him live, but don't say untrue things about him.
