Description: A handful of contemporary movies have whimsically looked back at the '80s. Various bands have borrowed from the time period's musical trends with a tongue-in-cheek attitude. But Weird Al was busy sending up that decade while it was still happening. On Dare to Be Stupid, Yankovic parodies, among other things, smash hits by two reigning divas of yore.

Top Picks: "Dare To Be Stupid" and "Slime Creatures from Outer Space""

First, the desire to explore a culture I identified with and wished to learn from and second the acceptance of where and what I am at the time (then and now).
