iTunes Review

By 1988 Weird Al Yankovic must have known that he really had something back in 1984 when lampooning Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” with the wonderfully juvenile “Eat It.” Even Worse runs with that gag all the way to the album’s title and cover art, which culminated in the hilarious single and video, “Fat,” a rip on Jackson’s “Bad.” Returning to the roasting of Jackson via references to food and (this time around) morbid obesity, the brilliance of the parody is in the continuation to poke fun at Jackson’s over-posed arrogance; in “Beat It” Jackson played the harbinger of street violence and in “Bad” he attempted to personify it. But Even Worse is much more than just another Jackson ribbing. With his take on Tiffany’s cover of Tommy James & The Shondells’ “I Think We’re Alone Now,” Yankovic reveals the lighter side of science fiction movies in pure Mad magazine fashion with “I Think I’m a Clone Now.” Coincidentally Tommy James takes another one for the team when Yankovic turns Billy Idol’s rendition of “Mony Mony” into the divorcee’s lament “Alimony.”

Customer Reviews

One of my favorites!!

Even funnier he parodied a song and album cover of my other favorite musician, Michael Jackson!! :D Speaking of, this album was made in 1987, waaay before Michael died. And Michael loved it, and he even donated the set for the video. And besides, Al even asked first. So calm down!!! This is a hillarious album by the King
Of Comedy!! Buy it!!!

To the lamers about MJ

Because MJ died, you would take this music off iTunes? Thank god you're not in charge.

WAY music was as popular then as it is now. I came back to find some classics that I couldn't convert. I had this album on cassette tape.

The foremost song parodist of the MTV era, "Weird Al" Yankovic carried the torch of musical humor more proudly and more successfully than any performer since Allan Sherman. In the world of novelty records — a genre noted for its extensive back catalog of flashes-in-the-pan and one-hit wonders — Yankovic was king, scoring smash after smash over the course of an enduring career which found him topically mocking everything from new wave to gangsta rap.
