2. 'Eat It'
It's hard to imagine what might have happened to Weird Al's career had Michael Jackson not signed off on "Eat It." That could have easily happened: Al was pretty unknown at that point and Jackson wasn't exactly known for his roaring sense of humor, especially when it came to his music. But sign off on the song he did, and "Weird Al" created an amazing shot-for-shot parody of the "Beat It" video that MTV put into heavy rotation. Suddenly, children all across the country fell in love with this bizarre man singing about food with incredible passion. The success of "Eat It" finally proved that Weird Al might have some longevity to his career, though nobody thought it would be going strong in 2014.
