The Biggest Ball Of Twine In Minnesota:"Weird Al" Yankovic

Artist: "Weird Al" Yankovic

Album: UHF Official Motion Picture Soundtrack (And Other Stuff)

Appears On (Mixes): The Opposite Of Smoke Is Egg Whites

Song Notes: This is one of "Weird Al" Yankovic's longest songs (his longest is "Albuquerque" from Running With Scissors, and I think only "Genius In France" from Poodle Hat might be longer than this one), and one of his most-beloved by Al fans. It's on the UHF Official Motion Picture Soundtrack (And Other Stuff) (so named, according to Al, because if it were merely a soundtrack album, it wouldn't be nearly long enough as there wasn't enough music in the movie; at least he went the honest route instead of the standard "Music From And Inspired By…" that you find on most soundtracks; especially since I wonder how many of the tracks were actually "inspired by" the movie they're on the soundtrack to, and not merely some random B-side or cast-off track the band had lying around that was thrown on the CD to help sell copies by promising an exclusive track by some big band). All of the attractions mentioned in the song are (or at least, were) real, and could be found in the book and website Roadside America. I think that might be a worthy road trip at some point. - Rev.
