New Weird Al: Is this the worst song you'll hear all week? (Maybe not!)

Posted on

No, this is not another post about Mel Gibson’s girlfriend’s song — though the shoddy lyrics of Weird Al’s latest tune, “Craigslist,” certainly could also have been co-written by the Braveheart star. (Instead, it’s kind of a retread of “When the Music’s Over” featuring Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek, though not really a direct parody, per se — um, maybe more of an homage?)

So we won’t directly call it; instead, we leave it up to you, readers: Clearly, there’s already some stiff competition out there and yes, it’s only Tuesday, but we have to ask: Is this the worst song you’ll hear all week? (Hey, maybe it’s the best!)
