Thank you for taking the time to read my review and feel free to leave me a helpful/not helpful feedback. God Bless America!
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".
Since there isn't enough movie material to fill an alubm, those are sprinkled amongst some new offereings. The big winner, in my mind, is "Generic Blues". Imagine if B.B. King had Al's offbeat sensibility and you get the idea. I love when the guitar solo kicks in and Al shouts "Make it talk boy!" Then, after hearing the siren-like drone, follows up with "O.K., now make it shut up!"
"The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota" is the album's disappointment. At nearly seven minutes of rambling about a family's dream vacation to see the eponymous ball, it feels like a shaggy dog story with the best line in the middle with it's tribute to odd tourist stops ("like Elvis-o-rama, the Tupperware museum, the bole weevil monument and Cranberry World").Read more ›
