I Love Rocky Road” is a 1983 song by “Weird Al” Yankovic about a man’s obsession with rocky road ice cream. It takes place in an ice cream parlor, rather than in a bar. It was videotaped rather than filmed. In “I Love Rock ‘n Roll”, Joan Jett says “Ow! In “I Love Rocky Road”, Weird Al says “Ow! Demento makes a cameo appearance as a cashier. While Al is playing his accordion, the cover photo for the single can be seen. Yankovic wears a black leather jacket with the I Love Lucy logo, as a reference to Yankovic’s first music video, “Ricky”. The ice cream in the video was actually mashed potatoes because real ice cream would melt under the stage lights. When Yankovic sings the line “If I get fat and lose my teeth, that’s fine with me,” he smiles to reveal all his teeth have either fallen out or are rotten.

In a contemporary review for Rolling Stone magazine, David Fricke gave the album four out of five stars, calling the album a “statement of purpose” and “an ambitious, sometimes difficult record that is exhilarating in its successes and, at the very least, fascinating in its indulgences. Two drastically different moods dominate the new album. That dichotomy is particularly explicit in “Private Investigations,” a long, unorthodox ballad in which Knopfler plays a private detective hardened by a life of combing through other people’s dirty laundry.
