When I was a wee lad, I was notorious for re-writing songs. I totally thank Weird Al for that. (I still have his first four albums… on vinyl!) I still remember the first time I heard his parody of Toni Basil’s “Hey Mickey” called “Ricky”. And thus began my obsession with making up my own lyrics to popular songs. And I love every sing polka medley he ever did. Because I’m weird like that.
I’m guessing most of you have probably seen this video since it was released last week, but I keep giggling when I think about it. Because I love Weird Al. And that’s what he does. After I hear one of his parodies, I no longer ever hear the original song in my head.
I love the hat-tip to Madonna at the 1:20-ish and the 1:50-ish marks.
And that is how I expect drag queens to dress.
Until next time...
