My Top 10 “Weird Al” Yankovic Original Songs

Last April Fools’ Day, I counted down my Top 10 “Weird Al” Yankovic parodies. It was a great list, and it fit the day perfectly.

My Top 10 Songs of 2016

My Top 10 Songs of 2014

Back at the end of 1983, whatever radio station (80s pop music) I listened to at the time had its annual year-end countdown. A song I didn’t particularly care for topped the list, so I decided to make my own list. As a dorky new teenager, I did a weekly Top 10 list, and at […]
