In Hear This, AV Club writers sing praises of songs they know inspired by weekly theme and some not, but always songs worth hearing. This week, in tribute To Mandatory Fun, were recounting some of our Weird Al Yankovic songs. Though Weird Al Yankovic made his name on direct parodies, when he takes on whole styleor, in case of Dare To Be Stupid, one band body of workthe, results are often just as successful. Case in point: Albuquerque, nearly 12-minute closing track from Al's album Running With Scissors. Yankovic had always had ability to concisely skewer best, and occasionally worst, of pop music into song, but in Albuquerque he admitted it was conceived as challenge to his fans. I going to make this song so long that people only gonna want to hear it once, said Yankovic, but his attempt backfire. Result Was Not Only One Of Yankovic's Most-loved Songs, But Also One Of Oddest. Over course of song, Albuquerque offers up some of Yankovics most absurd lines, as he tells tale of twentysomething sauerkraut-eating hero escaping his home for pleasures of New Mexico desert. On his way, he survives plane crash, has series of run-ins with locals, and finds love after being attacked by bunch of angry weasels. Albuquerque is Weird Al at his weirdest, as style parody of Rugburns goes slightly askew, inadvertently giving Al eccentric EPIC that was all his own.
