Weird Al's even Covered Up with a parody song. Chamillionaire, whose song "Ridin'" was the basis for "White & Nerdy", reported that he received praise from people overseas, saying "people were telling me they had heard my version of Weird Al's song".
Al wrote the lyrics to "The Saga Begins" with 99% accuracy... without having seen The Phantom Menace. He got all of his information from fan sites and went to see a pre-screening only to check his work.
It's said that, when Weird Al went to watch the pre-screening, he actually cheered when Anakin told Shmi that he was going to be a Jedi.
According to one report, he sent the song to George Lucas before the album released, and was told later, "You should have seen the smile on his [George's] face."
And Don McLean admitted that since his kids also played the song so often, when Don performs "American Pie" in concert, at times he accidentally sings Al's lyrics.
ALBUQUERQUE. (Superfly, "I. HATE. SAUERKRAUT.", the Hermaphrodite, and the point where he loses track of the story all count.)
The breathless list of items in "Hardware Store".
To the point where Weird Al won't sing the song live. Why? Because he doesn't think he'll ever be able to do that again.
