You can’t beat Weird Al for satires of hit songs. And, being a word nerd, this is one of my favorites.

2. Post a song that you love by an artist that was not one of their biggest hits.

I’m a big Jackson Browne fan, but this is one of his lesser known songs.

3. Post a song that was featured in a tv show or in a movie.

Do you remember the TV hospital drama St. Elsewhere from the 80s?

Okay, your turn.
