Weird Al Yankovic - Alapalooza

'Weird Al' Yankovic - "Alapalooza"
(Scotti Bros, 5 Octobre 1993)

En pleine dinosaure-mania, Weird reprend l'obscur et très niais "MacArthur Park" de Richard Harris en un "Jurassic Park" où il réussit à raconter toute l'histoire du film en moins de 4 minutes… Ajoutez à cela un clip tout en pâte à modeler hautement psychédélique et ça y est, vous avez envie de connaître cette chanson par cœur! Ce sont ensuite les Red Hot Chili Peppers qui en prennent pour leur grade dans un mélange "Under the bridge" / "Give it away" / "The Flintstones" assez parfait autant que yabadabadou. Billy Ray Cyrus lui prend très cher dans "Achy breaky song" : 'Don't play that song, that achy breaky song, the most annoying song I know, and if you play that song, I might blow up your radio, ooooo'. La parodie qui suit d'Aerosmith est trop bien vue: à la place de "Living on the edge", Weird parle d'un plat qui serait resté depuis bien trop longtemps dans le frigo: 'There's somethin' wrong in the fridge today, I don't know what it is, food I can't recognize, My roommate won't throw a thing away, I guess it's probably his, It looks like it's alive… And livin' in the fridge…'. À noter aussi le très court (et très culte) "Harvey the wonder hamster" ('he doesn't bite and he doesn't squeal, he just runs around on his hamster wheel'), et enfin pour clore l'album une version polka de "Bohemian rhapsody" de Queen assez hallucinante.
