Didn't Weird Al Yankovic have a version?

I heard this news yesterday, quite sad, indeed. I was a fan of the song! To anwer diane's question, I think Al Yankovic's version was "My Bologna," right?

Have a great week!

Anything Fits a Naked Man is correct.

I don't know...sure I liked the song and we made up really lame dances to it in Grade 6 or whatever grade it was... but to honest that guy could have been dead for the last 20 years and I wouldn't have known any different so I can't really be all "OMG, SO sad...." when really that song was only a blip on my pong screen and well... ok maybe this sounds cold, but I don't really feel touched by the death of people I don't personally know and especially people I don't personally know and haven't thought about since circa 1980 and so yeah, this doesn't make me feel sad I'm afraid and it also doesn't really make me feel like hearing the song.

Off topic my word verification word is "wovenize" which I don't think is a real word but sounds like it should be.

Gage - Yeah. I agree. They really only had one hit.
