“Weird Al” Yankovic is the master of song parodies and pop culture references, so naturally he would mock television over the years. In 1995, “Weird Al” put out The TV Album, which compiled all of his TV-related songs up to that point. Well, he hates it. Now that over 10 years have passed, the album seems kind of arbitrary. There are so many more recent songs about TV songs that deserve recognition, so here are five songs from “Weird Al’s” collection that either weren’t on The TV Album or were included, but still hold up fairly well today.
Since a list of “Weird Al” song parodies about TV is still in the pipeline, today’s video is “Weird Al” Yankovic’s “Money For Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies* .” The song has the Beverly Hillbillies theme set to the tune of The Dire Straits’ “Money for Nothing.”
