艾尔扬科维奇(Al Yankovic)名言

I make charts of songs that are good candidates, good targets, so to speak. Then I try to come up with ideas for parodies. And 99% of those ideas are horrible.

我制作的歌曲图表可以说是很好的候选人,很好的目标。然后我试着想出模仿的点子。99%的想法都很糟糕。

I did have a child, and I was reading a lot of picture books to her, but at the same time writing a children's book was something that I'd been wanting to do for many years, pretty much since the start of my career.

我确实有一个孩子,我给她读了很多图画书,但与此同时,写一本儿童读物是我多年来一直想做的事情,几乎是从我的职业生涯开始。

每当我模仿别人的音乐,并不是要让你真的讨厌别人的音乐。

When I go to my live shows it's often a multigenerational audience, a family bonding experience.

So that's why one of my rules of parody writing is that it's gotta be funny regardless of whether you know the source material. It has to work on its own merit.

所以这就是为什么我写模仿的规则之一就是不管你是否知道源材料都要有趣。它必须根据自己的优点工作。

One of my pet peeves is that sometimes the talents of my band get overlooked because, and it was the same problem that Frank Zappa had, with a lot of groups that use humor, people don't realize there's a lot of craft behind the comedy.

我最恼火的一点是,有时我的乐队的才能会被忽视,因为这和弗兰克·扎帕的问题是一样的,有很多团体使用幽默,人们没有意识到喜剧背后有很多技巧。

艾尔扬科维奇

There are a lot of songs that would ostensibly be a good candidate for parody, yet I can't think of a clever enough idea.

有很多歌曲表面上是模仿的好选择,但我想不出一个足够聪明的主意。
