Late, Late Night FDL: Mission Statement

“Weird Al” Yankovic – Mission Statement

Yankovic spoofs corporate culture in Crosby, Stills & Nash-style track

For his last video release off new album “Mandatory Fun,” Yankovic harmonizes with himself over music in the style of “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes”-era Crosby, Stills & Nash. The lyrics are full of the kind of day-to-day corporate mumbo-jumbo that will be familiar to anyone who works in an office — or has listened to the news recently.

“I wanted to do a song about all the ridiculous double-speak and meaningless buzzwords that I’ve been hearing in office environments my entire life,” Yankovic told the Washington Post via email. “I just thought it would be ironic to juxtapose that with the song stylings of CSN, whose music pretty much symbolizes the antithesis of corporate America.”

What’s on your mind tonite…?
