As a child I adored Spike Jones and his City Slickers. When I grew up, I realized what consummate musicians he had to have in his band, in order to be able to record the zany pieces that they did, and I admired them even more. When I look around at today’s musical personalities, no one can hold a candle to Spike.

Well, except for one guy. Wierd Al Yankovic is the true heir of Spike Jones.

Enjoy this medley of classic polka tunes.
