Are all of you aware that there are two versions of the UHF song? There's a 5 minute version and a 4 minute version. The 5 minute version has a longer opening with Al saying, Chica, Chica, Chica, Chica. Where was the 4 minute version used and where was the 5 minute version used? Album, Single, Music Video, Movie Credits.

The four minute version is used on the music video, and I think on the single. The 5:30 version is used on the full album, during the credits and on the DVD menus.

Actually, there are THREE versions of the song.

There's the album version, the single version, and the film version. The film version is actually a bit longer than the album version and has a definite ending instead of fading out like the album version.

BTW, the single edit can also be found on "Permanent Record: Al in the Box" and "Greatest Hits Volume 2."

Ah... I wouldn't have known, because I haven't got the album.

WHAT?!?!?! I was so happy when I got that album. I dont know why, but it made me happier than I had been since Alapalooza came out.

Is the five minute version on the TV Album? Cause I was listening to that cd and that song sounded different. Or is it my imagination?
