"Weird Al" Yankovic on the economy- Whatever You Like

You can have whatever you like...as long as it's in within my budget. New official single from "Weird Al" Yankovic, satirizing the economic crisis and the hit single by T.I.. It's all about the Washingtons!

Also, an interesting interview/article from Wired about Al and his possible place as the father of modern Internet parody.

Brilliant. He's still at the top of his game. Government cheese!

I'm doing the poor college student thing at the moment and this song describes my girlfriend and I.

Sad really.

Seriously. Has Wierd Al been watching me and taking notes?

Is that a song parody, or an original? I'm going to guess parody, because the music is too bland and uninspired for an Al original.

Yeah, it's a parody of T.I.

One of my family's favorite recipies growing up was a concoction of my mom's called (creatively) "Stew Rice" consisting of, yes, Minute Rice and a can of Dinty Moore stew. I love this song with all my heart.

The parody rocks better than the actual song.


Weird Al rocks.

A parody curiously titled the same as the original- a "Weird Al" first.

"Whatever You Like" by "Weird Al" Yankovic
A Parody of
"Whatever You Like" by T.I.

Little bit confusing, but keeping the same title to deliver an exact opposite message is kinda a cool twist on Al's song parody formula.

I'll visit the hated iTunes store and buy it to support this experiment.
