3. 'Amish Paradise'
"Amish Paradise" may well be the single funniest song in the vast Weird Al catalog. Lines like "And I've been milkin' and plowin' so long that even Ezekiel thinks that my mind is gone" are still hysterical nearly 20 years later. The song is a spoof of Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise," from the soundtrack to Dangerous Minds. At the time, just about everyone thought it was funny besides Coolio. He bashed Weird Al to the press, saying he did the song without his permission. It's the closest thing to a scandal in Yankovic's history, though a couple years later Coolio changed his mind and said he loved the song. He made peace with Weird Al many years ago, but the controversy lives on every time VH1 shows his Behind The Music.
