"Gandhi II" is a TV trailer from the UHF movie. "Next week, on U62, he's back, and this time he's mad. No more Mr. Passive Resistance" and it's done to the melody from Shaft by Isaac Hayes.
"Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters from A Planet Near Mars." Yes, sounds like the title of a bad 1950's UFO movie and if you ever heard "Slime Creatures From Outer Space" from Dare To Be Stupid, you get the idea what kind of song it is. I wonder if Al had a pet hamster and was staring at intently enough to come up with a wacky song. Hamsters the size of a blimp, who play electric guitars, and "think the whole stinkin' world is their exercise wheel"... wow!
"Isle Thing" incorporates a TV song with Tone-Loc's "Wild Thing" and Al's mimicking Mr. Loc's voice is simply funny. "I'm watching that Gilligan's Isle Thing" is the tag line to the chorus. His commentary on the various characters is great, as he says that Ginger and Maryann could've used some funky cold medina. And on the Professor, "If he's so fly, then tell me why he couldn't build a lousy raft?" Hasta la vista, little buddy!
Polka time, and this time it's all Rolling Stones song.Read more ›
I have to agree that this isn't one of Al's better albums, and there are a few bits that don't make sense out of the context of the movie. But I still had a lot of fun listening to it, and there are a few songs on this album that I love, including one that I'd rank among his best.
Word of warning to those wanting the movie's orchestral score -- there's only one instrumental track on this album, "Fun Zone," and it's written by Al himself instead of the film's composer. It's still a fun and upbeat number, but if you're looking for the actual score, you won't find it here. (I don't even know if it's available, sadly...)
There are only four parodies on this album, but all are enjoyable to listen to. My favorite of these parodies would have to be "She Drives Like Crazy," his take on Fine Young Cannibals' "She Drives Me Crazy." His parody is very stylistically similar to the original, save some comedic engine and tire-squealing sounds. The other parodies are pretty fun as well, and focus on two of his favorite parody subjects -- TV and food.Read more ›
About half the tracks are items from the movie "UHF;" the rest are songs, including a polka number ("Hot Rocks Polka," a Rolling Stones medley)
All in all, a good album.
