  • Ryan from Somewhere In, NjThat is the best video ever. I've practically memorized the lyrics!
  • Robert from Denver, CoThis song is absolutely brilliant. I love the complexity of the palindromes and the way they all perfectly rhyme. The man is a genius.
  • Chris from Claremont, CaI am HUGE fans of two artists, Michael Jackson and "Weird Al" Yankovic
  • Ralph from Newton, MaActually Al calls this type of song a style piece. His best one is probably "Dare to be Stupid" which totally captures Devo's style in both sound and lyrics. Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo says that that song came out when Devo was unable to recreate their own sound and he hates Al for being able to do them better than they could at that difficult time for the band.
  • Alex from New Orleans, LaIt's not really a parody so much as a style parody. But the video does copy Dylan's "video"
