My thoughts On Medium Rarities + Remade tracklist

Post by YankoSwag 8888 »

I think this might be one of my favourite Weird Al Yankovic albums, I love finally being able to hear a good quality version of Pac-Man or Take Me Down. While I love the concept of the album but I think the track list could have been a litle bit better. I thought there were a few to many songs from recent TV shows at the end, which works fine but I wish it had songs like It's Still Billy Joel To Me & You're Pitiful. That complaint aside I can't wait for this. I made an updated track list for fun:
1. Take Me Down
2. My Bologna 1979 version
3. School Cafeteria
4. Yoda 1980 version
5. Dr. Demento Jingle
6. Pac-Man
7. It's Still Billy Joel To Me
8. Dare to Be Stupid (Instrumental)
9. Jurassic Park (Japanese version)
10. Headline News
11. Since You've Been Gone (Karaoke)
12. The Night Santa Went Crazy (Extra Gory Version)
13. Spy Hard
14. Like A Surgeon (Truth Or Dare Remix)
15. Lousy Haircut
16. Homer and Marge
17 You're Pitiful
18. Eat It (Unplugged)
19. Gonna Buy Me A Condo (Unplugged)
20 Radio Radio
21. Word Crimes (demo)
22. Happy Birthday 2016 Version

I think the original album is good, but being a big collector of Al rarities I was a little disappointed with it. While I love the concept I can't see myself buying SB just for MR so for now I'll just have to stick with this bootleg version.

It was a pipe dream to get our hopes up for a true rarities compilation. Al is pretty vocal about not really wanting his older stuff out there. I know that theres a lot of concert only songs that he probably souldnt be ashamed of, but how many were because of lack of permissions and how many were one joke songs?

I still have my fingers crossed for some band demos being released some day. I remember Bermuda said that some of them were quite good, and that maybe they would surface at some point (with Al's permission, of course)

Hmm, that rarities list is terrible. Not too many rarities though it did say medium rarities. Pretty medium.
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!

The original is worse.
