No Roy, I did love the Rambo part, I had just forgotten about it. I also loved that they were overly dramatic when it came to how many explosions went off. XD

Hmm, I haven't seen too many of his music videos, but of the ones I have seen, I'd say "White and Nerdy" is my favorite.

It's harder to pick favorites of just his songs. Some that I especially like are "Polkamon," "Smells Like Nirvana," "Trash Day," and "You're Pitiful." He's truly an amazing musician; he mimicks every artist's sound so well, and his lyrics are so witty! XD

Yeah, that's why I love to listen to him sometimes when I'm not feeling so great. Laughter is the best medicine.

Did you know he was elected valedictorian in his high school? And that he majored in architechture?

Yeah I knew that. Because he was so smart, he was able to do his work as parodying works, playing polka, and making his own originals. Really, comedy is hard to do in music form and only a few can do it so that's why Weird Al was a perfect match for it.

ADXC, have you ever listened to Bob Rivers or Ray Stevens? They're in the same vein as Weird Al. Bob Rivers's specialty seems to be AC/DC parodies because he can imitate both of the lead singers almost flawlessly. His best song is "Dirty Deeds Done With Sheep" (a parody of "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap"). Ray Stevens has actually been at the trade longer than Weird Al, but he doesn't do parodies. I think he started in the 60's. Check them out sometime.

Almost anything other than White and Nerdy because of it being way WAY too overplayed, and I disliked it in the first place...

other that that he's good

"Pacman" is a great song, as is "Yoda Chant". I also love "Genius in France" because he's doing a style parody of Frank Zappa, and he nails it perfectly. I also like "You Make Me", because he's style parodying Oingo Boingo (Danny Elfman's band), but "Pancreas" has to be one of my absolute favorites.
"To be a good listener, you must acquire a musical culture...you must be familiar with the history and development of music, you must listen...to receive music you have to open your ears and wait for the music, you must believe that it is something you need ...to listen is an effort, and just to hear has no merit. A duck hears also." - Igor Stravinsky
