Remember when times were simpler? When a pre-Baywatch David Hasselhoff fought crime in a souped-up talking Firebird named KITT?
Youtuber Banjo Guy Ollie remembers. Now's he's covering that "high-tech" Knight Rider theme with his banjo (and his accordion and some other instruments). He reports that he'll soon cover other eighties TV themes like Magnum P.I., Airwolf, and The A-Team.

Weird Al's "The Hamilton Polka" inspired Michael William Hunter to create a song about the accordion-playing musician's life. It's a Hamilton parody set to the tune of the musical's "Alexander Hamilton," called "Alfred Matthew Yankovic."
It's really great! Here's a taste of the lyrics:
Well, the word got around said, “this kid is so weird, man!” Soon he’s posing with an accordion in his mere hands.
Perfect yo skills with classes, get glasses with a thick frame! And the world will surely know your name! What’s your name man?
Alfred Matthew Yankovic.
My name is Alfred Matthew Yankovic.
I can’t find and rhyme for “Yankovic.”
But just you wait. Just you wait.
When he's not making a "Weird Al"-Hamilton parody, Hunter runs "Weird Al"Phabet, a podcast that discusses every "Weird Al" Yankovic song in alphabetical order.

Fans of the Broadway musical Hamilton have been all in a tizzy because "Weird Al" Yankovic worked with Lin-Manuel Miranda on the latest "Hamildrop." It's a squeezebox ditty called "The Hamilton Polka" and it's described as "remixed medley of ‘Hamilton’ hits, featuring Weird Al’s twist on songs like ‘My Shot,’ ‘Wait For It,’ ‘The Schuyler Sisters,’ and more."
