Dare To Be Stupid

Dare To Be Stupid by "Weird Al" Yankovic
Released: Jan 1985
Label: VOLCANO
When the third installment of Weird Al's Nose Picker Trilogy came out, many of today's thirty-somethings were rocking Velcro "shoelaces" and rolling with multi-sided dice. It was a special time when all that mattered was procuring ninja throwing stars and learning the secret warps on Atari's Crystal Castles. Yankovic's reworking of a Huey Lewis hit yielded these brilliant lyrics: "I want a new duck - one that won't try to bite. One that won't chew a hole in my socks, one that won't quack all night." Turning the Kinks' "Lola" into a song about master Yoda was another magnum opus.
