"just released"???????

I've had an MP3 of this song since 7/11/14, I downloaded it from Dr. Demento Basement tapes #4. I never knew it wasn't released (or just out there)!!

 

It's OK....not my fav Pac-Man song of course, but it's on my MP3 player.

Officially, it will be on the rarities disc of his career-spanning box set coming out soon. He posted a video of it on Vevo.

 

I think I got my copy from Napster.

Yeah, the song was released years ago on the aforementioned Basement Tapes CD that you'd get with your Demento Society membership. (And I think you can still order it via The Demento Society.)

 

It's simply listed as "Bonus track by 'Weird Al' Yankovic." When I played the CD and heard the song, I thought the title was a way of dodging the "Apple Police," as some Beatles fans call 'em. But it turns out that Al's track on the next year's Basement Tapes volume also had the same title, but it was an Al original (don't remember which one off the top of my head), so I guess it might be that the list was made before they decided which Al song would make the cut.

Supernatural, perhaps...baloney, perhaps not.

That explains how I got it before everyone else! Thanks!

Thing is....Al is also a vegetarian. :)  (But I think for different reasons. I think he's veggie because he found it to be a healthy diet; Macca is a vegetarian due to his strong animal rights beliefs.)

 

I think Al also had a "Black or White" parody that had to do with chicken as well for which Michael Jackson wouldn't grant his blessing, also citing vegetarianism.

Supernatural, perhaps...baloney, perhaps not.
