Last week I suggested “You’re Beautiful” should be retired, Gnarls style. Even James Blunt’s sick of the song (“This is an award for the most overplayed record of the year,” he admitted at last month’s Ivor Novello Awards). Until then, here’s the next best thing: Weird Al’s parody.
Stereogum hasn’t been amused by Weird Al since “Smells Like Nirvana.” And this tune … well, let’s just say it’s not going on the iPod. But if you’re curious: “Weird Al” Yankovic – “You’re Pitiful” (MP3)
“You’re pitiful / You’re pitiful / You’re pitiful it’s true / Never had a date that you couldn’t inflate / And you smell repulsive, too / What a bummer being you.”
Lyrics via Spin. Wonder what Al’s next target will be. I hope not “Crazy.”
Speaking of crazy:
THIS IS AL and wife Suzanne at their wedding.. [Oops — that was apparently a joke photo.]
