How can you talk about parody without mentioning Weird Al. I was introduced to him through a weekly radio show I used to listen to as a teenager, The Doctor Demento Show. I would like to think it is still on the air waves somewhere, but sadly it has been gone from the local radio station for many years. Doctor Demento did more than just parody songs there were a host of comedy songs played as well. I heard many great songs over the years and have a copy of a special Doctor Demento Christmas CD. I wanted to pick a favorite song to put on this post, but don’t have a clue where I would begin to pick a favorite. Thinking about this I have a few that have stuck in my head and although Boot To The Head, Wet Dreams and the classic They’re Coming To Take Me Away are all great my choice is The Little Blue Man. This is a song from 1958 by Betty Johnson and this YouTube video is the best version I have seen. Take time to be a little silly, laugh a little bit and stay a little demented.
