Weird Al Yankovic sings “The Elements”

Weird Al Yankovic in concert at the Golden State Theatre, Monterey, 2018-05-17.

My wife and I got to see “Weird Al” Yankovic in concert in Monterey last Thursday night. He covered Tom Lehrer’s “The Elements”. This is interesting because….

  • Al doesn’t often do covers, but often does parodies.
  • Tom’s song was itself a parody.
  • The source material (from “The Pirates of Penzance”) was, some say, partly a response to the rampant musical piracy in the U.S. at the time.

So there’s a thing. Anyway, I really enjoyed the concert, and I wanted to test some experimental binaural microphones I’d constructed. Bada-bing! Bada-boom!

So, please Don’t Download this Song, and if you want to help Al and Tom get their Solid Gold Humvees, then support them by doing stuff!

Oh, and Emo Philips is a great opener, very funny, and (despite rumor) still alive.
