Weird Al - Polkarama

In a previous post (I'm on a Boat) I mentioned Weird Al Yankovic's Polkas.  Specifically this one.

I decided it merited a post all of its own.
It is hysterical.  I love it.  It openly mocks the most popular songs of the year (2005).  My personal favorites are "Don't Cha," "Candy Shop," and "Gold Digger."  The macho swagger and sexual overdrive of these songs, while seemingly justified by the heavy beat and sexual panting of the rap/hip-hop genre, are laid bare as meaningless and adolescent when placed on top of Weird Al's quaint and peppy accordion polka music.
It is dry, satirical humor at its finest.
