    “All Virgos are extremely friendly and intelligent EXCEPT FOR YOU!

    Expect a big surprise today when you wind up with your head impaled upon a stick.”

    I literally just got this song out of my head after a week of waking up and it being the first thing to pop into my brain. Cool video but don’t know if it was worth another week of this.

    Oh god the memories. Turns out I still know almost all of the words beat for beat even 20 years after I first heard it lol.

    Bless Weird Al. The world is a better place with him in it and making content.

    It is frightening how many horoscopes I remembered and could sing along to in a song I haven’t heard in nearly 20 years.

    I know all the words to this song, and I didn’t know that fact about myself until about a year ago, when I listened to it for the first time in about 20 years. Somehow, all the lyrics just came back to me. The brain is amazing.

    Love me some Al, and this song is one of my favorites. Gotta say though, I’m not overly impressed with the video. It’s alright, but it feels to lack the pacing of the song. Some of the skits are funny, but too many are just some person/face being slightly sad.

    A neat project that makes sense since it’s a collaboration with his comic book artists, but I’m bummed he hasn’t put out an album in nine years. I listened to a bunch of his music through the Weird Al Radio stunt recently, and I was struck by how much was 80s-90s parodies. I imagine he was super busy with the “biopic” movie, but coinciding it with a new album full of modern parodies — e.g., Lizzo, BTS, Bad Bunny, whatever’s in these days — could have upped his cultural awareness among younger audiences and maybe even gotten him on the Billboard charts again. As a fan of his, I hope he has something new in the works and doesn’t just keep banking on nostalgia.

    Alright this is so weird. A few days ago i was back on a weird Al kick since I used to listen to him a ton when I was young. I remembered this song and was listening to it a lot, surprised I still knew all the words. I searched Reddit to see if there were any threads or discussions around this song but there wasn’t anything recent. Then 2 days later this pops up on /r/videos ??? Such a minor thing but life is just weird sometimes man

    now you may find it inconceivable or at the very least a bit unlikely that the relative position of the planets and the stars can have a special deep significance or meaning that exclusively applies to only you, but let me give you my assurance that these forecasts and predictions are all based on solid scientific documented evidence so you would have to be some kind of moron not to realize that every single one of them is absolutely true – where was I?

    Oh my goodness. My childhood. Running with Scissors was my favorite album by any musician ever. This is amazing

    Honestly I have had a garbage day and you have no idea how much I needed something like this to make me smile. Thank you random internet stranger. I’m gonna listen to weird Al songs tonight to cheer up
