Weird Al Yankovic - Bad Hair Day

'Weird Al' Yankovic - "Bad Hair Day"
(Scotti Bros, 12 Mars 1996)

Cet album s'écoula vraiment bien aux Etats-Unis (1,7 millions d'exemplaires vendus), alors qu'il nous a paru plutôt un peu faible ici. "Amish paradise", parodie de la version de Coolio du hit de Stevie Wonder "Gangsta' Paradise" est vraiment marrante, sinon "Cavity search" est sensée être une parodie dentaire de U2 ("Hold me Thrill me Kiss me Kill me" sur la b.o. de "Batman & Robin"), mais U2 se parodient déjà assez eux-mêmes depuis des années, alors… "Gump" reprend le "Lump" des Presidents Of The United States Of America en racontant l'histoire du célèbre film avec Tom Hanks ('he's Gump, he's Gump, he's not too bright'). "Phony calls", c'est "Waterfalls" de TLC, un peu facile sur le fond, mais très bien parodiée sur la forme, ce qui à défaut d'être irrésistible est un minimum utile... Finalement, on retient surtout "The alternative polka", medley en folie de "Loser" (Beck), "Sex Type Thing" (Stone Temple Pilots), "All I Wanna Do" (Sheryl Crow), "Closer" (Nine Inch Nails), "Bang and Blame" (R.E.M.), "You Oughta Know" (Alanis Morissette), "Bullet With Butterfly Wings", (Smashing Pumpkins), "My Friends" (Red Hot Chili Peppers), "I'll Stick Around" (Foo Fighters), "Black Hole Sun" (Soundgarden) et "Basket Case" (Green Day)!
