Look up The Funky Western Civilization on youtube, there are some major similarities there. Definitely a near parody

Thanks! I'd never heard any of Tonio K.'s music before, Yankovic's song makes more sense now.

Tonio K is fantastic. Look up more of his work. Of course im a big fan of early 80s New Wave,

I haven't done this in a long time. I need to start doing it again. Very fun song. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

I just listened to Tonio K's 'Funky Western Civilization'. Interesting song. I see now what inspired 'Happy Birthday'.

If I don't know the other person that well, this is my go-to thing to post on people's walls on their birthday.

OMG someone did that to me today for my birthday considering how she knows about how much of a Weird Al kick I'm on! <3 Love this song!
