Mandatory Fun by Weird Al Yankovic

Mandatory Fun
by Weird Al Yankovic [Compact Disc 781.66 Yan]

This album is done in the usual Weird Al style. He sings parody versions of pop songs with his own strange lyrics and polka influences. They are funny, but are more enjoyable if you've heard the original song. This one came out recently so it has recent pop tunes tracks. I didn't think this one was as good as previous ones, but I don't listen to pop music much these days, so I didn't know too many of the tunes. I'd recommend it if you want a laugh, although you might try some older Weird Al albums too if you're like me don't keep up with pop music anymore. -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library [ see Kristen's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]
