Weird Al's New Parody - Craigslist

I proudly admit to being a Weird Al fan. And I've brought my son over to the "Al" side. We can often be found cruising around town with White & Nerdy or Amish Paradise blasting from the car speakers (but we're polite and keep the windows rolled up).

According to his website, Al's new album won't be out until (maybe) next year, but over the summer, he's leaking five new songs on the Internet. The first, Whatever You Like, a T.I. parody, came out a month or so ago. The latest released today.

Craigslist is in the in the style of The Doors (original Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek plays). If I were to rank this with Al's other songs, I'd put it somewhere in the middle. Fun, but not as unique and catchy as the above mentioned ditties. And I much prefer his earlier Ebay parody. But this song did make me smile because both my sisters are on a Craigslist roll right now, selling everything from toddler beds to empty packing boxes. For me, it's relevant.

If you want to keep up with the latest Weird Al news, you can follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

Have fun, and parody on!
