"Weird Al" Yankovic - Craigslist
"Weird Al" may well have been one of the most influential singers on me growing up. He had silly, funny songs perfect for a 12 year-old boy, and they were all hit rock songs to begin with, so it was win-win. But with this genius new video "Craigslist," Weird Al parodies my favorite band of all time, The Doors, but not by spoofing one of their songs. He delivers the entire Doors ouvre in earnest, accompanied by their famously zealous keyboardist, Ray Manzarek. He croons about selling old cars like mine on Craigslist It's the best of the both worlds.
