Today is the birthday of iconic parody musician "Weird Al" Yankovic. Yankovic was always one of my favorite musicians growing up. The first compact disc I ever owned was Weird Al Yankovic - Greatest Hits, Volume 2. I have not kept up to date on all of Yankovic's later creations, but I will never grow tired of hearing any of his classic song parodies.
To honor Yankovic's birthday I have included a rare video of a live performance of "Happy Birthday". As Youtube user EvilUncleFrank states, the video quality is a bit poor. But what would you expect form a video that was recorded on July 29, 1983!
Happy birthday to you "Weird Al" Yankovic! Wish him a happy birthday on Twitter.
