Yet Another Early Clue to the New Direction

From 1984, here's Weird Al Yankovic, on a TV variety show somewhere in the Mystic East, performing his Michael Jackson parody "Eat It." With subtitles.

As always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to tomorrow's Listomania.

I HATE Weird Al.

He's. Not. Funny.

Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.

Evergreens. Mr. Weird has been well known since the seventies, is still around, still well known and still has some chart success!

Food related songs?

"He's. Not. Funny."

Still, you gotta admit that "Bob" song is darn clever.

Okay, there's just no fooling you guys.

Mike and Ali -- your first ever Co-No-Prize is being sent to you by worm roundup [see: Rocky and Bullwinkle] as we speak.

And I should add that there's a proviso to the category that I will expound on when the list goes up after midnight.

Setting Star Wars Ep. 1 to "American Pie" was a hoot, if a bit overwrought.
