Ms Brain Diva has challenged me to come up with my top 10 favorite songs of all time. This is quite a daunting task, I have to say. However yesterday on the way home from the airport we picked up WERS Boston Emerson College radio, which has a children's show that I have been a fan of since my biggest one was a toddler. Now this is not your "Barney" etc... tunes, they play Disney and other family movie soundtracks, classic pop tunes like the Jackson 5, The Partridge Family... LOL AndWeird Al. I love Weird Al. One of the best VH1 Behind The Music's was two hours on him. Anyway, I just heard one of his that made me laugh to effing hard I was near tears. You must sing it in your head for full effect- it's a parody of Avril Lavine's Complicated.

A Complicated Song by Al Yankovic
Uh huh ... extra cheese
Uh huh, uh huh ... save a piece for me
Pizza party at your house
I went just to check it out
Nineteen extra larges
What a shame
No one came

Just us eatin' all alone
You said, "Take the pizza home"
"No sense lettin' all this go to waste"
So then I faced
Pizza all day
And every day
This cheese 'round the clock
Is gettin' me blocked
And I sure don't care
For irregularity

Tell meWhy'd you have to go and make me so constipated?
'Cause right now I'd do anything to just get my bowels evacuated
In the bathroom ... I sit and I wait and I strain
And I sweat and I clench and I feel the pain
Oh, should I take laxatives or have my colon irrigated?
No no no

I was feelin' pretty down
'Till my girlfriend came around
We're just so alike in every wayI gotta say
In fact, I just thought I might
Pop the question there that night
I was kissing her so tenderly
But woe is me
Who would have guessed
Her family crest
I'd suddely spy
Tattooed on her thigh
And son-of-a-gun
It's just like the one on me
Tell meHow was I supposed to know we were both related?
Believe me, if I knew she was my cousin we never would have dated
What to do now?
Should I go ahead and propose
And get hitched and have kids with eleven toes
And move to Alabama where that kind of thing is tolerated?
No no no no no no no
No no no no no no no
No no no no no

I had so much on my mind
I thought maybe I'd unwind
Try out that new roller coaster ride
And the guide
Said not to stand
But that's a demand
That I couldn't meet
I got on my feet
And stood up instead
And knocked off my head, you see?

Tell meWhy'd I have to go and get myself decapitated?
This really is a major inconvenience, oh man, I really hate it
Such a drag, now ...
Can't eat, I can't breathe, I can't snoreI can't belch or yodel anymore
Can't spit or blow my nose or even read Sports Illustrated
Oh no
Why'd I have to go and get myself all mutilated? (yeah, yeah)
I gotta tell ya, life without a head kinda makes me irritated
What a bummer
Can't blink, I can't cough, I can't sneeeze
But my neck is enjoyin' a pleasant breeze
nowHaven't been the same since my head and I were separated
No no no
