That's a direct cover of Harry Nilsson's song.

I need to update my title of this song to include everything in the medley. Funkytown comes before Emotional Rescue too!
not to mention the toilets at Madonna Inn

Here's what I've worked out:

If I Could Make Love To A Bottle, Tomorrow (Annie), Symphony #5 (Beethoven), Yo Ho A Pirate's Life For Me (Disney), I'd Rather Be Dead (Harry Nillsen), Tired of Mowing the Lawn (parody of "Tired of Towing the Line" by Rocky Burnette), Funkytown (direct cover, then turns into "Taco Bell" parody), Emotional Rescue (style parody of the Rolling Stones song/album), Brass In Pocket (Pretenders lyrical adaptation), crescendo ending

Suddenly, I'm reminded of Jace's earliest songs he gave me years back. I guess silly, and immature lyrics come with the territory of starting out as a parodist.

These early recordings also show just how far Al has evolved as a satirical artist, from the days of the wacky and random, to the now of intricately, intelligent humor. Al has, indeed perfected his sound and style.

Maybe so, but in this case the song is not a parody but a direct cover. See the original here.

@Minnick: You've missed my point. Just because I'm reminded of a friend's early works doen't imply what you're thinking, so I'd suggest keeping those comments to yourself.

@TMBJon: I missed that, thanks.

@Eyeball Chair: Thanks, I appreciate it, man.

That list sounds about right.

Of course, this thread is called "Won't Eat Prunes Again," not "Random Medley" (what should we call this medley)?
