Great video! Too bad Bermuda had to play such a repetitive pop beat.

I wonder if that gets frustrating not being able to show your chops?

Weird Al should put out a concept album with wacky / tacky original stuff.

But then again not. Bermuda would be out of a job and then he'd get really mean. ;-)

Knowing Mr Bermuda a bit, I can relatively confidently tell you he has no problem playing a pop beat and having a good time of it. It's all about attitude, and his is good.

Just saw this video on the Rolling Stone website, and knew if I headed over the DW there would be a thread!

Another brilliant video, and song by Al, I really don't know he always manages to get really funny lyrics (replacement lyrics) that fit and scan so well.

If you have not yet seen it, go!

Of course that's a loop in the recording, but we are playing it live on Conan this Thursday. FWIW, it will sound just like the recording.

I don't stray much to begin with, but it really takes discipline to repeat 1 bar over & over without any variation! We'll see how I do in a few days!

Wait'll ya see and hear tomorrow's video (my personal fave!) Either catch Al on The View, or check out www.weirdal.com after 11am ET. :)

This is indeed the hardest thing for me to do. Maybe it depends on your musical background, but I spent so much of my formative years trying NOT to repeat myself that doing something extremely repetitive is almost physically uncomfortable for me. But I've made it a priority to get better at it over the past few years with good results.

Looking forward to seeing the show, Jon!

This is actually one of the things that I'm really good at. When I get into an money beat groove, I can stay there for quite a while.

At least one Sydney radio station has been promoting the "Tacky" video.

Just watched "Word Crimes". Both WC and Tacky are so well done. Great attention to detail lyrically and musically.

Well done to all involved.

@bermuda - any danger of a tour down under in the future?

Great job all round. "Not taking yourself seriously" yet with a strong underlying professionalism is a very tough thing to do.
