Weird Al Yankovic has a new album coming out and his new song Don’t Download this Song is hilarious. If you’ve been following the insane story of the RIAA suing grandmothers and teenagers then you’ll really appreciate the irony of the lyrics.
I know by blogging about this I’m just a witting pawn in their marketing campaign but this song can’t be ignored. It must be downloaded. Go ahead disobey the very title. Here is the MP3 URL. http://www.dontdownloadthissong.com/DDTS.mp3 Don’t worry they want you to have it. Really. It’s the ultimate double speak. They tell you to do one thing and expect you to do another. Ah… the psychology of marketing.
