Here at WebTV Hub, we’ve made no secret of our love for parody king, Weird Al Yankovic. In this video he’s taken the tune of Bob Dylan’s popular ditty Subterranean Homesick Blues and composed a song made up entirely of palindromes.
For those of you who aren’t word nerds like myself, palindromes are words or phrases that read the same forwards and backwards. For example, Mr Dylan’s name Bob is a palindrome.
Of course, finding palindromic words is easy. But finding enough palindromic phrases to create a song is freaky cool.
Weird Al’s also replicated Bob Dylan’s iconic clip for this song. This helps us clearly see each palindrome, which in turns makes us further appreciate the genius of the man.
