'Orgy On My Own' is a "Weird Al" Yankovic song recorded in 1981. The only confirmed time it has ever been played live was the second show on June 12, 1981, at Knott's Berry Farm. Other than that, not much is known about the song.
This song is one of Al's early works, released before his self-titled debut album in 1983. It is no surprise that this song is hardly available, as most of Al's early, pre-1983 portfolio is in fact, unavailable. They have mostly been played on unrecorded episodes of the Dr. Demento Show, and the fact is that Al is very embarrassed about his early music. Al has even said in an unknown interview with the public he would rather have a naked image of him released on the internet than have an old song released to the public.
'Orgy On My Own' was originally uploaded to YouTube in 2012 by user JohnnyLurg, but this video was taken down, previously making this one of the rarest "Weird Al" Yankovic songs in existence. However, the song was eventually saved by Reddit user invisiblehippo97, who sent the file to LMW user stewartisme. The song was then uploaded to YouTube on September 5th, 2015, along with a mirror on MEGA.
- A keyboard version of this song was submitted to the Dr. Demento Show (a radio show dedicated to novelty songs like Al's), but it was never aired.
- This song is very unlike Al's other songs, as it has more "inappropriate" content, as opposed to Al's normal PG-Rated songs.
- Al doesn't actually sing the main part, he only does the background vocals and accordion. Lead vocals were performed by Joe Earley.
