问熟谙欧美娱乐圈的你一个问题，据说有一位歌手以在歌曲中揭大牌明星的短为乐事，将Madonna,J.Lo,Simon Cowell,Osburne一家等一众高人通统得罪可个遍，请问此人是谁？什么？Eminem？错！再提示一点：词人连Eminem也不放过，还把他的著名作品改得一塌糊涂哩！怎么样？猜不出来吧？哈哈，看你如此诚实的份上宣布答案：此君名叫Al Yankovic,绰号"Weird Al",乃是货真价实如假包换的音乐顽童一名！看看下面的一组照片就知道他的能耐了！尤其是，这个家伙，还凭借一张名叫《Poodlw Hat》的专辑获得了2004年第46届格莱美奖的"最佳喜剧专辑"．
本人前段时间在一家快要拆除的打口店里淘到了两张这个家伙的专辑，一张83年发行的处女同名专辑《Weird Al Yankovic 》和一张99年发行的专辑《Running With Scissors 》．里面不乏一些经典歌曲的恶搞，像"I Love Rock n Roll"被恶搞为：''I Love Rocky Road'',本人觉得最经典的是《Running With Scissors 》这张专辑的第一首歌''American Pie''被恶搞为以星球大战前传一为故事背景的歌曲"The Saga Begins "．其中还有一首歌"Polka Power"是99年脍炙人口的多首歌曲的串烧,看来国内的某些歌手的创新还是借鉴于国外的这些怪人．至于其他Yankovic自己创作的歌曲，歌词的一贯幽默无厘头就不用说了，可能是由于摆脱了既定曲式限制的缘故吧，音乐上更加自由，爵士，ska，曼波等音乐元素被他信手拈来，并且在任意涂抹之间纳而化之，达到了万花丛中过，片叶不沾身的境界．
现在懂幽默的人越来越少了，在音乐圈里就更不好找，所以你一定要抓住"Weird Al" Yankovic这个大活宝哦！
Over the last quarter century, "Weird Al" Yankovic has emerged as a comic chronicler of pop culture, satirizing various musical genres and trends and demonstrating mind-bending versatility. The singer-songwriter first exhibited this gift in 1979, where as a college disc jockey he recorded "My Bologna," a spoof of The Knack's "My Sharona." A devoteé of musical satirists Spike Jones, Tom Lehrer, Allan Sherman and Stan Freberg, Yankovic's budding career took off when the song became a sensation on radio's nationally syndicated "Dr. Demento Show."
And thus the die was cast. Just a few years later, Al landed his first recording contract and has since created an extraordinary legacy of music and ground-breaking videos, including parodies such as "Eat It," "Like A Surgeon," "Fat," "Smells Like Nirvana," "Bedrock Anthem," "Amish Paradise," "The Saga Begins" and many others. In addition to directing his own music videos, Al has overseen clips for Ben Folds, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Hanson and The Black Crowes. He also created the critically acclaimed opening title sequence to the Leslie Nielsen film "Spy Hard."
As his career grew, Al made the triumphant transformation from pop music satirist to multimedia star, having done his own television specials for MTV ("AL-TV"), Showtime and the Disney Channel, among others. In addition to his own network series ("The Weird Al Show" on CBS in 1997-98), Al also has been featured on many VH1 shows and specials including a profile on "Behind the Music" that was one of the most popular installments in the history of the series. In 2002 Al's debut feature film, the 1989 cult classic "UHF" (which he co-wrote and starred in) became an instant Top Ten best-seller upon its release on DVD. In 2003, Al and his band guest-starred as themselves on "The Simpsons."
In further testament to his enduring appeal, Al has amassed 25 Gold and Platinum album certifications in the U.S., Canada and Australia, as well as four Gold-certified home videos and a four-CD boxed set retrospective. He has won three Grammys (and nine nominations) and received an MTV Video Music Award nomination for "Smells Like Nirvana," which was named among the "Top 100 Music Videos Of All Time" by Rolling Stone. Al's highest-charting, best-selling album to date, Bad Hair Day (1996), stayed on the Billboard Top 200 for 56 weeks and sold nearly 2 million copies. His latest concert tour brought him to 143 cities in the U.S. and Australia in support of the Grammy Award-winning album Poodle Hat. In total, Al has sold more than 12 million albums, making him the biggest-selling comedy artist in history.
