After the middle-of-the-road Even Worse, Al made a movie, UHF, now a cult 80's film, and the soundtrack to it shows him back in form. How many hours did Mr. Yankovic lie awake thinking about how to incorporate the lyrics to the Beverly Hillbillies song to Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing". Mark Knopfler was generous enough, as he also did the guitar for this song!
"Gandhi II" is a TV trailer from the UHF movie. "Next week, on U62, he's back, and this time he's mad. No more Mr. Passive Resistance" and it's done to the melody from Shaft by Isaac Hayes.
"Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters from A Planet Near Mars." Yes, sounds like the title of a bad 1950's UFO movie and if you ever heard "Slime Creatures From Outer Space" from Dare To Be Stupid, you get the idea what kind of song it is. I wonder if Al had a pet hamster and was staring at intently enough to come up with a wacky song. Hamsters the size of a blimp, who play electric guitars, and "think the whole stinkin' world is their exercise wheel"... wow!
"Isle Thing" incorporates a TV song with Tone-Loc's "Wild Thing" and Al's mimicking Mr. Loc's voice is simply funny. "I'm watching that Gilligan's Isle Thing" is the tag line to the chorus. His commentary on the various characters is great, as he says that Ginger and Maryann could've used some funky cold medina. And on the Professor, "If he's so fly, then tell me why he couldn't build a lousy raft?" Hasta la vista, little buddy!
Polka time, and this time it's all Rolling Stones song.

By Amazon Customer HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on July 4 2003
Format: Audio CD
In the great tradition of the Beatles's "Hard Day's Night" album, "UHF" not only presents all of the songs that appeared in "Weird Al" Yankovic's 1989 film of the same name, but additional songs recorded in the studio. By now, the "Weird Al" formula is set in stone. Producer Rick Derringer not only plays guitar but makes sure the parodies on "UHF" sound as much like the originals as possible (e.g., "She Drives Like Crazy" versus the Fine Young Cannibal's "She Drives Me Crazy"). This serves to set up the humor of the lyricism sung in Yankovic's weird but strangely compelling voice (his singing talent as a parodist is probably the most overlooked aspect of his success). Yes, "Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters From a Planet Near Mars" is one of his worse original compositions, but clearly the man needs to purge such things out of his system with appalling regularity. But "Weird Al" makes up for this with "Gandhi II," a brilliant take off on the theme from "Shaft." "Money for Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies," "Isle Thing," and "Spam" all reinforce the "Weird Al" fixation on two key ingredients of modern American popular culture, namely television and food. The polka medley makes its return on this album, with "The Hot Rocks Polka" devoted entirely to the music of the Rolling Stones (I am still waiting for "Weird Al" to take on the Beatles, but that might require an entire album--which is perfectly all right with me, boys and girls). Ultimately, "UHF" is neither as good as the album that preceded it, "Even Worse," or the great one that would follow, "Off the Deep End," but on balance it is better than any of his first four efforts.

UHF was a bust at the box office, but is acheiving cult status on dvd. The cd is fine for anyone who enjoyed the humor of "UHF," and the music of Mr. Yankovic. Look and see:
1. Money For Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies: 4/5 From the movie.
2. Gandhi II: 5/5 A funny sound clip from the film.
3. AOFRHFAPLM: 2/5 The name makes it repetitive.
4. Isle Thing: 3/5 Kind of a Dumb Parody
5. The Hot Rocks Polka: 5/5 Rolling Stones fans will love this one!
6. UHF: 4/5 "We got it all on UHF."
7. Let Me Be Your Hog: 2/5 Was featured breiefly in the film.
8. She Drives Like Crazy: 3/5 Funny parody.
9. Generic Blues: 0/5 I didn't care for this one.
10. Spatula City: 5/5 Just like #2.
11. Fun Zone: 2/5 Semi-amusing instrumental music.
12. Spam: 3/5 Funny parody of Stand.
13. The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota: 5/5 Weird Al has always saved the best for last, from "Nature Trail to Hell" to "Albuquerque."

This was my favorite Al-bum, well, until "Poodle Hat" came along, but anyway, it's got one ultra-awesome song, eight great songs, one good song, and three mediocre/bad songs.
1. Money For Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies - 3/5. Gets a little old after a while, but still good.
2. Gandhi II - 5/5. Hilarious clip from the "UHF" film.
3. Attack Of The Radioactive Hamsters From A Planet Near Mars - 5/5. Cute little song. Also notable for the longest title of a Weird Al song.
4. Isle Thing - 3/5. Good lyrics, but I never liked the original.
5. The Hot Rocks Polka - 5/5. One of his best polkas. You'd really appreciate this if you were a Stones fan.
6. UHF - 5/5. Very funny song with a great tune. The music video is one of his most complex and funny.
7. Let Me Be Your Hog - 5/5. The shortest Weird Al song, only 0:17 seconds. It's also one of his stupid.
8. She Drives Like Crazy - 2/5. His voice is a little annoying on this one.
9. Generic Blues - 5/5. One of his best songs. Hilarious suicidal blues number with some witty lyrics.
10. Spatula City - 5/5. Another great clip from the film.
11. Fun Zone - 4/5. Al's only instrumental (if you pretend the "heys" and "yeahs" aren't there).
12. Spam - 5/5. Great REM parody about everyone's favorite lunch meat.
13. The Biggest Ball Of Twine In Minnesota - 6/5. Al's seven-minute-long epic tale of a tourist family going out to see the biggest ball of twine in Minnesota. One of my top three Weird Al songs. Pure genius. You are bound to love this awesome song!
So, UHF is worth buying for "Gandhi II", "Attack Of The Radioactive Hamsters From A Planet Near Mars", "The Hot Rocks Polka", "UHF", "Let Me Be Your Hog", "Generic Blues", "Spatula City", "Spam", and "The Biggest Ball Of Twine In Minnesota".
