(YouTube)   You've always wanted to hear "Gangster's Paradise" as an Oktoberfest song, complete with accordions and tubas? Sure you have. No, don't pretend you haven't--it's okay; I won't tell anybody   (youtube.com) divider line

And something in an American Folk sound along the lines of a Peter Paul and Mary or perhaps a John Denver...

Yeah, that was ...not good. Weird Al did it already, a thousand times better. If he did it as a polka, it would sound like a polka and be good.

The Hildegaard Von Blingen ones are especially good.

Myk-House of El: Yeah, sounded like a rejected segment from one of Weird Al's polka medleys.


Weird Al's polka music is probably some of the best ever recorded.  It's no surprise that regular polka doesn't sound as good.

No love for "Pastime Paradise"?

"Gangsters Paradise" debuted in my childhood, and after my brother listened to a local radio station playing it something like 40 times in a row (really) my dad pulled out a record with this on it.

Ditto, and I didn't learn about Pastime Paradise until I think 2 years ago.

Well, I mean in general.

And I do have a theory:  For any given melodical musical instrument, you can find a video on YouTube of someone playing AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" on that instrument.

One of my favorite versions:

I will admit that I prefer listening to Bohemian Polka to Bohemian Rhapsody.

I love Queen and Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the all time greatest songs. But there is something about it that just works with Weird Al's polka beat and the faster tempo.

I've always liked that rendition of Mr. Sandman, but I've never seen the video. That was awesome! From the guys dressing in drag to the doubling down on creepy clowns, yes. Perfect. Love it.
