Court Links: Weird Al and Tuesday CD Releases

16 Nov
Weird Al Yankovic

This embodies Weird Al Yankovic

Everyone has had the experience of listening to a Weird Al Yankovic parody song and thinking it was the original. Heck, I would even go out on a limb and say that Weird Al has introduced more people to Rock and Rap than the radio. Come on, tell me you have not listened to “Amish Paradise,” “Eat it,” or any of Weird Al’s neverending catalogue of comical songs., a humor and video site, asked Weird Al to write them an article about his favorite parody songs and to make a list of stories behind songs he wanted to parody but couldn’t. And, in normal Weird Al fashion, he went well above and beyond the call of duty.

Check it out:

Music CD

Now boys and girls, this archaic bagel shaped disc was called a CD-Rom. People used to listen to music that was stored on this.

Notable November 17th CD Releases

John Mayer: “Battle Studies”

– Mayer’s fourth studio album mixes blues and stories and track 7 is his own version of “Crossroads” based on The Creams version. If that is not enough to buy this album I do not know what is.

The Chairs: “Nine Ways”

– “The Chairs released its first full-length last spring, and has since pro­duced two EPs, and now a sec­ond album. Due out on the 17th, Nine Ways is sim­ply an incred­i­ble album, some­thing not even the out­stand­ingly high quan­tity of work The Chairs pro­duced this year could sti­fle. The album show­cases nine rather unique ways to die, or more accu­rately, to be killed, not only in each of its tracks (dur­ing which a total of eigh­teen peo­ple pass away) but on the var­i­ous album cov­ers (yes, there are mul­ti­ple cov­ers), each cor­re­spond­ing to a track and method of death. But Nine Ways is not just more mor­bid than the band’s last album: it is also more exper­i­men­tal, more detailed, and more intel­li­gent. Nine Ways is noth­ing short of an amaz­ing album.” Review from Plumbiferous:

Them Crooked Vultures: “Them Crooked Vultures”

– The much anticipated debut album from the supergroup that includes vocalist and guitarist Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss), bassist and keyboardist John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) and drummer Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana). An interesting combination of hard rock that is certainly worth checking out
