Album #15

Post by mrmeadows »

Okay, I know we fans are not entitled to any new songs by Weird Al. He's given us 14 albums that will continue to give us joy for the remainder of our lives. But....what if his contract had called for just ONE more album? Well, we likely would have had a new release by *now*, with 5 brand new parodies, 6 originals and a polka. Still, for all we know we may never hear another new Weird Al song (much less an album) ever again, so all we can do at the moment is dream.

So let's dream! Put together an imaginary tracklist of what you think Album #15 might have been! Come up with 5 parody ideas (just the titles), and then get creative/silly with your ideas for his 6 originals.

Here's one I came up with. Caveat: I KNOW Al could do much better than this, but like I said...there's probably not going to be any more "traditional" ALbums in the near future, so we gotta come up with our own. For this one, I included a brief explanation of what the originals would be about, but for the parodies I only give the parody title + what it is a parody of. I'll let the reader's imagination do the rest. ;)

AL-BUM #15: "LEAVE ME ALONE"

TRACKLIST

1. Star Trek (parody of "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran)

2. If They Could Only See Me Now (Ramones/Sex Pistols style-parody about a perennial loser musing about how he wished all the people who used to pick on him growing up could see all the mundane "wins" in his adult life, such as being awarded Employee of the Month at Hardee's and winning $25 on a lottery scratcher ticket.)

3. Take Ibuprofen (parody of "Cake by the Ocean" by DNCE)

4. Vote for Me (Campaign song for a candidate whose proposals get progressively more ridiculous as the song goes on. Done in the style of "Hamilton")

5. Steam Something (parody of "Say Something" by Justin Timberlake)

6. Beer Flight (Tom Waits style-parody about a guy at a brewery tasting all kinds of different beers with unique--and often gross--flavors. This one is just for me, as I'm a Waits fan and enjoy a good microbrew...but I realize that Al would probably not do a song all about alcohol consumption. :P )

7. W.A.P. (Weird Al Polka)
---Featuring "W.A.P.", "This is America", "Havana", "Blinding Lights", "Bad Guy", "Shape of You", "ME!", "Hotline Bling", "Hello", "Harmony Hall", "Work", "No Tears Left to Cry", "Uptown Funk", "Chandelier", "Old Town Road"

8. Pandemic Lockdown Blues (because it seems like Al would have to do a humorous song about all the lame stuff one does to keep themselves occupied during lockdown. Done in the style of a blues song, obv.)

9. Hashtag #Bummer (parody of "Hot Girl Summer" by Megan Thee Stallion)

10. Next! (K-Pop style-parody about online dating, and all the bad dates the singer ends up having to endure. By end of song he finally finds someone he likes...but that person thinks *he's* a dud and never gets back to him.)

11. Fishing License (parody of "Driver's License" by Olivia Rodrigo)

12. Bottom of the 72nd ("epic" closing song in the vein of "Casey at the Bat" telling the story of the world's longest baseball game and all the crazy plays along the way, sung in style of Charlie Daniels' "Devil Went Down to Georgia" country storytelling song)

My thought on Weird Al Polka's closing lyrics:

I'm gonna take my horse to...
The old town road
The old town road
The old town road
I'm gonna ride... 'til I can't no more, hey!

YES, I definitely think the 15th ALbum would have a K-Pop style-parody. I would looooove to see him even imitating the dancing in their videos lol. One can dream. Also, kinda bummed that we probably won't be hearing Bad Guy on the accordion :/

I wish I were creative as you (or Al). My brain is coming up blank with more parody ideas.
