The ultimate staple of every record in Weird Al's discography has to be the polka medley. While the rest of the tracks are parodies, the polka is the only time where he actually takes the lyrics from the originals, reintroducing them for the contemporary polka audience. In his latest, "NOW That's What I Call Polka!" from his freshly released Mandatory Fun, he covers several pop smashes we've all heard, or overheard.

Miley Cyrus – “Wrecking Ball”
Foster The People – “Pumped Up Kicks”
One Direction – “The Best Song Ever”
Psy – “Gangnam Style”
Carly Rae Jepsen – “Call Me Maybe”
will.i.am – “Scream & Shout” (Feat. Britney Spears)
Gotye – “Somebody That I Used To Know” (Feat. Kimbra)
Pitbull – “Timber” (Feat. Ke$ha)
LMFAO – “Sexy And I Know It”
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – “Thrift Shop” (Feat. Wanz)
Daft Punk – “Get Lucky”

You'll notice that some of these are dated, but it doesn't seem like the singer/parodist is too tech-savvy. I mean, he doesn't even have a SoundCloud page. Check out "NOW That's What I Call Polka!" below:
