“Weird Al” Yankovic is one of the funniest and most entertaining song parodists in the world, as well as one of the most successful. This list is my personal selection of his best parody songs. I am absolutely sure that you have heard at least one of his parodies (or, if you have not, now is the time to discover this versatile artist), because some of them have equally hilarious music videos in which “Weird Al” makes fun of the artists he satirizes and/ or of the message of the songs and creates real masterpieces of entertainment.
