Happy Birthday Weird Al Yankovic

Today Weird Al Yankovic turns 54. He has earned his fame doing song parodies and his perhaps the most famous in his genre. It is good today is his birthday because we all need a smile or laugh.

His parody of Michael Jackson's "Beat It" launched him on the scene, his version was "Eat It"

He covered Michael Jackson's "Bad" with a song called "Bad"

He reworked Madonna's "Like A Virgin" into "Like A Surgeon"

Today's artists are not exempt from Weird Al, he reworked Lady Gaga's "Born this Way" into "Perform this Way"

Miley Cyrus "Party in the USA" was reworked into "Party in the CIA"

He has made parodies of songs n many genres of pop music and through many generations. Weird Al is still going strong creating new parodies and we wish him a happy birthday!
