    I love this video! I discovered it on You Tube about a week ago and my sides still hurt from laughing 🙂

    Although Dylan is a pretty good song writer, as a singer he leaves a lot to be desired. My idea of Hell, or at least Purgatory, would be having to listen to a jukebox with nothing but Bob Dylan and Yoko Ono songs!

  2. Donna V says:

    That is good, thanks Tito! Elaine, I used to know a guy who enjoyed mimicking Dylan. When Steve had a bad head cold, his imitation went from good to dead on perfect.

    Here’s another vid poking good-natured fun at other ’60’s pop icons:

  3. All palindromes, that’s awesome…

    One of the strange things about Weird Al is that he’s more inventive and creative than most of the acts he’s parodied (although I would not include Dylan in that category).

    LOL. The Weird Al video was clever as all get. The Beatles video almost had me in tears.

    Great stuff guys.

    Easily as good a Dylan send-up as Bowser & Blue’s “Polka Dot Undies,” only this one you can play for the kids! Al’s vocal talents never cease to impress me!

    Donna V, you have to look up the literal versions of David Hasselhof’s “Hooked on a Feeling,” or my fave, Tears for Fears’s “Head Over Heels.”

    “Oh, no, Don Ho!”

    My thoughts exactly.

    “Senile felines”

    Sounds like the cats owned by an acquaintance of mine.

    “Go hang a salami, I’m a lasagna hog!”

    See first comment 🙂
