I abosolutely love Weird Al. But that's a concertina on his back, yes? I think you need to upgrade him to the full size accordion. :-)

Nice, but wrong year. Al's debut album was 1983, and his first big hit "Eat It" was 1984.

Ah, those were the days. I remember listening to "Another One Rides the Bus" among others...

I question the title. Before Wierd Al, Tom Lehrer was doing some lyrical parody of his own.

I think he did another one rides the bus on Tom Snider with just a cardboard box and his accordion.
My friend was on the show that night....Weird Al was much better!

Going to see him in July!

Sorry, it was way before 85. He was well established by then.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!
No greater love is lost than that not shared.

I missed him last time he was out here on tour, but I've still got my enhanced 5.1 surround sound CD to enjoy.
