"Weird Al" Yankovic channels The Doors on Craigslist

Ray Manzarek plays keyboards too!

 Weird Al Yankovic channels The Doors on Craigslist
"Weird Al" or Jim Morrison? Hard to tell

You're not a real somebody until "Weird Al" Yankovic parodies you. And if that's indeed the case, then The Doors are definitely somebodies - the musical satarist apes Jim Morrison and uses a melange of Doors-inspired melodies in his latest track Craigslist.

The musical homage - an amalgam of When The Music's Over with snatches of other Doors-esque passages - is dead-on, and with very good reason: keyboardist Ray Manzarek plays on the track.

Lyrically, Craigslist sends up the popular classified site with laser-beam focus. Check out this stanza:

Whoa, yeah!

You've got a 65 Chevy Malibu
With automatic drive, a custom paint job too
I'll trade you for my old wheelbarrow
And a slightly-used sombrero
And I'll even throw in a stapler, if you insist

By the way, the "whoa, yeah!" is eerily authentic-sounding. And as for Yankovic's mid-song beat poetry in which he fights with a barista, well, we suspect Morrison is grinning somewhere.

Check it out below. Say, is it just us, or is "Weird Al" Yankovic getting better with age?
