^ Oh, I could look them up, but the original songs aren't anything I would ever listen to.

Al's 80's stuff was all based on songs I would hear all the time, so I "got" those.

At least he's staying current.
I think that's one thing that I appreciate about his work: the music is topical, but the writing is (relatively) timeless. We can still sing "Eat It," for one thing.

Oh, and there's so much more thought put into "Word Crimes" than "Blurred Lines." So once again, I prefer the parody over the original.
