Weird Al Yankovic Trivia Questions

1. The song starts with Al telling us "I wanna ha I wanna ha I wanna ha, I wanna really wanna really really wanna ziggy ziggy ah!" Which Spice Girls song is he singing here?

From Quiz
Polka Power! - "Weird Al" Boils Down the Late 90s

Answer: Wannabe

"Wannabe" was the Spice Girls' debut single. Recorded in less than an hour, the song topped the UK Singles Chart for seven weeks and the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks. It would go on to be the number one song in 37 countries and in 2014 a study conducted by the University of Amsterdam with more than 12,000 participants chose the song as the most easily recognisable pop song of the previous 60 years.

2. "'Cause I'm the king of cellulite. Ham on, ham on, ham on whole wheat, all _____"

The lyrics are from the song "Fat". The song was first released in 1988 on the album "Even Worse". The lyric is from the first stanza of the song.

3. In the weeks prior to the release of "Mandatory Fun", "Weird Al" Yankovic shared costumed photos of himself on his Facebook and Twitter feeds. What theme was used for the photos and the album design?

From Quiz Mandatory Fun

Answer: Communist Propaganda

"Mandatory Fun" was the last album to be released on Al's contract with RCA Records. Al indicated that he wasn't planning to stop recording however; he believed his craft was better suited to quick releases on the Internet. Al had occasionally remarked about the "obligations" of recording contracts, and perhaps the "Mandatory Fun" title was a swipe at them. The album art featured a Soviet-style propaganda theme with pictures of Al posed like Che Guevara and Mao Zedong.

4. A lot of Weird Al's parody songs have a 'foody' theme. Which of them has the following lyrics? "Never gonna stop, eat it up, such a tasty snack, I always eat too much, then throw up"

9. What album is the song "Trapped in the Drive-Thru" from?

The Scott Jacobson Gallery described it thus: "Blown vessel with yellow interior layered with clear glass, then layered with red and finished off with brown, sand blasted cameo exposing all the colors."
