Weird Al Spoofs James BluntWeird Al - "You're Pitiful" (Download MP3)
June 8, 2006
The prince of parody's latest target is the ubiquitous James Blunt single, "You're Beautiful." Download it here!
Weird Al, the quirky song parodist who's paraded around as everything from a New Kid on the Block to a gangsta rapper to a Jedi Knight, is back with his latest spoofy version of a chart-topping hit: James Blunt's "You're Beautiful." Al morphs Blunt's sensitive-guy appeal into visions of a Halo-playing, Star Trek-uniform-wearing, Slurpee-sipping loser. The chorus becomes a tongue-in-cheek tribute to this social reject: "You're pitiful / You're pitiful / You're pitiful it's true / Never had a date that you couldn't inflate / And you smell repulsive, too / What a bummer being you." We can't wait to see the video...will Al rip off his shirt in the rain and cliff dive?
