Wesley Willis - Greatest Hits - Volume 3

Upon first listening to this artists most people write him off as some kind of guy who is just trying to make a buck with goofy songs but upon a little investigation one finds that this guy was actually a serious artist (who also happened to be a schizophrenic) who believed in what he did. This isn't to say that I don't find lots of humor in the songs but I also hear the love and devotion in songs like 'Rock and Roll McDonalds' and 'I'm Sorry That I Got Fat.' How can you not love any song with a lyric 'McDonald's hamburgers suck'?

  1. Too bad you linked to the wrong album. The link is for his first greatest hits, not volume 3 like you have pictured. Funny thing is the same picture is in the archive with the song titles on it. There are 25 in the picture and 22 in the archive and none match. I think you better quit eating at McDonalds. The grease may be getting to you.
