"Weird Al" Yankovic - Jurashiku Park ('Jurassic Park' - Japanese Version) (separately, live! - belting & musical interlude both not to be missed).

Lyrics are in this Reddit thread.

Also, unironically, MacArthur Park is a good song.

I didn't even know that Weird Al had a Jurassic Park song until this post. If you haven't already seen it, the music video has some great claymation! Weird Al Jurassic Park Music Video

Nice job, Weird Al! I appreciate the one second (visual) shout-out to Cubism at 2:24 in the English version.

"MacArthur Park" is a hilariously awful (unironic) song, despite or because of the fact that it was based on actually true events.

This is fabulous. Thanks! He just fucking went for it.

(I can't really defend the claim that these are similar. But, in other smart, weird, language-shifted media, this makes me think of Caballero Reynaldo's two albums that are covers of Frank Zappa.)

[edit: Parco MacArthur is also great.]
