If Weird Al Yankovich was doing traditional music instead of parodies, we’d recognize him as one of the greats of his era. Think about it. His first hit was the Michael Jackson knock off “Eat It,” That was in 1983. Since then he’s followed every single musical trend thats emerged over four decades and spun it into 14K gold.
And now, in less than 24 hours, he’s able to turn this around and encapsulate what we are all thinking to perfection. THIS is the anthem for 2020. It needs to be saved onto as many formats as possible - digital, CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-track, laserdisc, whatever - stored in a time capsule so future generations will know what it was like to live in our times. And so historians can appreciate the towering genius of this true artist.
