Weird Al Yankovic recently ran into Iggy Azalea at a radio concert, and he showed her the lyrics to a parody song he had recorded based on her hit single “Fancy.” While Weird Al doesn’t need to get artists’ permission to release parody versions of their songs he revealed that he likes to let artists know he is releasing parody tracks based on their songs whenever he can.
Below is Weird Al’s “Mandatory Fun” album track list. Which song do YOU think is a parody of “Fancy”? Our guess is either “Handy” or “Tacky.”
2. Lame Claim To Fame
4. Sports Song
5. World Crimes
6. My Own Eyes
7. NOW That’s What I Call Polka!
8. Mission Statement
10. First World Problems
12. Jackson Park Express
The album will arrive on July 15, 2014 and Weird Al plans to release 8 music videos over 8 days to celebrate the album arrival!
