Poodle Hat Posted on May 20, 2003 by Alexei Kosut Three hours, four record stores, two busses and one traffic ticket later, I’ve got it.
Congrats! How is it?
Pretty good! There are a couple tracks I really like, and a few I’m not yet sure of, but nothing bad. I haven’t been keeping up on popular music well enough in the past year to know how good the parodies of recent songs are (although I really like the first track, “Couch Potato,” which is a parody of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”) There are, of course, a lot of originals, as well a few parodies of older songs (“Piano Man” and “I Want It That Way”), which I can appreciate fully :)
Disclaimer: It’s got a QuickTime logo on the back, which I think means that I have to approve of it, since I’m a soon-to-be Apple employee.
What all Songs are on the CD I haven’t found much info an the different songs? Please e-mail me back with the answer.
The Web is replete with information on Poodle Hat. You might start with The Official “Weird Al” Yankovic Web Site. Also of interest might be Amazon, which has a complete track listing along with audio previews of several of the songs.
I found your site while I was “Weird Al” surfing. After listening for several weeks, I can say Poodle Hat is one of Al’s best works. Worth the wait. It won’t replace RWS as my favorite, but it’s darn close.
