Tuesday Mixtape | 113 Songs To Brighten Your Day (Side 3)

308

“Weird Al” Yankovic and Phil Spector might not have a lot in common — aside from being on your TV screen this week, that is. I just binged the illuminating and well-balanced new four-part doc Spector, and IMHO it does a fantastic job of recapping and contextualizing the legendary producer’s traumatic personal life, his illustrious career and the horrific killing of Lana Clarkson — without ever veering into hagiography or sensationalism. Of course, if that’s a little heavy for you, there’s always Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. It has everything you could want from a “Weird Al” ‘biopic’ — a hilarious and outrageous mish-mash of fact, fiction, fantasy and (yes) parody, featuring a VIP cast led by a distractingly buff Daniel Radcliffe and even a cameo by Al hisself. I highly recommend them both. But first, make your way through these 113 new singles, videos, cover tunes, remixes, unburied treasures and live performances — including a few dozen you won’t see or hear anywhere else. Your Tinnitist-approved tracks are tagged with a 💡. That gives me an idea:
