Weird Al Yankovic - Polka Party

'Weird Al' Yankovic - "Polka Party"
(Scotti Bros, 17 Octobre 1986)

Toujours autant branché nourriture, Weird transforme le "Addicted to love" de Robert Palmer en "Addicted to spuds". Sinon nous sommes heureux d'avoir oublié El DeBarge, on ne parlera donc pas de sa parodie, mais plutôt de celle de James Brown, "Living in the USA", qui devient "Living with a hernia", avec ses cris de douleur : aaaoou! La polka indispensable est là, détournant "Sledgehammer" (Peter Gabriel), "Sussudio" (Phil Collins), "Say You, Say Me" (Lionel Richie), "Freeway Of Love" (Aretha Franklin), "What You Need" (INXS), "Harlem Shuffle" (The Rolling Stones), "Venus" (la version de Bananarama, pas celle de Shocking Blue), "Nasty" (Janet Jackson), "Rock Me Amadeus" (Falco), "Shout" (Tears For Fears) et "Papa Don't Preach" (Madonna)… Et l'album finit dans l'humour noir de nouveau : "It's christmas at Ground Zero", noël post-atomique chantée avec une voix type Muppet Show sur une mélodie ultra-joyeuse…
Note polka : (Djouls)
