Whale fluke

Follow the bouncing ball

On this thread about "Weird Al" Yankovic's new album and the song "Don't Download This Song" -- a song I told a colleague this week "may be genuinely brilliant" -- leonardpart6 wrote:
The only thing wrong with "Download" is that I genuinely wish he'd have gotten a bunch of other singers to perform it with him, USA For Africa-style, just to underline the whole thing.
OK, here's what "Weird Al" needs to do: On his next tour, set up video screens showing the lyrics to the chorus of "Don't Download This Song," so that fans can sing along precisely to
Don't download this song
Don't go pirating music all day long
Go and buy the CD like you know that you should
Oh don't download this song
and
Don't download this song
Even Lars Ulrich knows it's wrong
and so on.

Al could even pass out cigarette lighters just for that song.
