Amish Paradise

Genre: Comedy; Lead Performer: Weird Al Yankovic; Producer (group): Scotti Bros.

Since they’re forbidden to listen to CDs, it’s pretty safe for Weird Al Yankovic to rank on the Amish in ”Amish Paradise”. Still, his parody of ”Gangsta’s Paradise” contains a buggyful of yuks, even when stripped of its hilarious video. With lines like ”But if I finish all of my chores and you finish thine/Then tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 1699,” this is one put-on that’s anything but plain.
