Review of "Off the Deep End - Weird Al Yankovic"
Where do we start? We see a slight resemblance to an album cover we've seen before, yes, Nirvana's album "never mind" looks so similar, obviously the baby has grown and is that a doughnut I spy? Who could possibly be the artist of such an album? Alfred Matthew Yankovic or better known as Weird al Yankovic - Born 1959 proud owner of three gold and five platinum records in America, and I bet there's alot of you who have no idea who this guy is!
Alfred is famous for his comical song writing skills, well I say song writing, by that I mean he writes the lyrics, someone's already made up the tunes. We just love the way he rewrites the lyrics so that they aren't criticising to the original artists work (He didn't even make one comment about 'children' in any of his Michael Jackson rewrites!) but add humour, and the lyrics just seem to fit so perfectly as if they were meant to be.
All the other songs are just as great! I'm sure there's a song that will tickle your fancyYou just gotta love this guy! OK so maybe it's not the stuff you'd really listen to at grandma's but it's the kinda stuff you'd catch your mad grandma listening to when you come round to help with the cleaning!
If you haven't had the delightful experience of listening to Weird Al, what are you waiting for? Amazon gives a very good price of $10.99! There's a song to suit everyone, from his Avril and Nirvana to his Christmas collection - We just can't get enough!(As this is my first review all comments are very much appreciated - Constructive criticism please! lol! Thanks Jo xx)
