I am talking about those cute/unusual/freakin’ strange songs that tickle your fancy, the ones that don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of being a top ten hit. Please take notice of the words “Your” and “three” in the title. I want
three songs that are on your personal list, not a link to some list on someone else’s website.
Existential Blues - YouTube
The Smoke Off-Shel Silverstein - YouTube
Weird Al Yankovic: Genius in France - YouTube
That’s my personal top three.
Timothy - Buoys - YouTube video with lyrics
Chat Room - Bob Rivers - YouTube video
Galaxy Song - Monty Python - YouTube video
It is really hard for me to narrow down to three, given my fondness for Weird Al Yankovic, Bob Rivers, and Monty Python. Even Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall have produced some amusing music (I do like both as stand-up comedians).

Man, it’s hard to pick only three.
- Ogden Edsl (the lyrics video was the easiest one to find, even though they misspelled Roman Hruska’s name) Dead Puppies
- Paul and Storm (lyrics again) The Captain’s Wife’s Lament
- 7 Seconds of Love (video by the actual band) Fun With Pork
Ask me again tomorrow and I’ll probably give you a different list.
Surfin’ Bird, Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah, and They’re Coming to take me Away are right out?
Manny Moe and Jack by The Dickies
Ukulele Blues by Martin Mull
Shaving Cream by almost anybody.

While these are not exactly novelty songs, they’re meant to be silly, and it sounds like the musicians had fun recording them:
You Know My Name (Look up the Number)
Chet Atkins (his version):
Diddy Wah Diddy

D’oh… I forgot about Spike Jones!
Hey, Chefguy, there is a SJ song that had the line, “the pistol shot adds a lot” - do you which song that is?
