I'm surprised nobody has mentioned 'Willy and the Hand Jive'!

Another great favourite of mine:-

I'm walking backwards for Christmas
Across the Irish Sea
I'm walking backwards for Christmas -
It's the only thing for me
I've tried walking sideways
And walking to the front -
But people just laugh and say:
'It's a publicity stunt'
So, I'm walking backwards for Christmas
To prove that I love you

[from Spike Milligan, unknown across the atlantic, I fear]

Reel Big Fish - "She Has A Girlfriend Now"

There's a line where the guy trying to get the girl back sings "I'll even cut my penis off for you" and she replies "that's so cute" ... makes me friggin' laugh every time.

Of course there are many, many Zappa songs that make me laugh too.

I forgot a GOOD one that I only heard for the first time a few months ago:

Willy Nelson's "Cowboys are Frequently, Secretly Fond of Each Other."

"I Kissed A Girl" is what reminded me.

Mike Patton is the master of this:

Faith No More - RV, Gentle Art of Making Enemies, etc.
Just about anything by Mr. Bungle, "Girls of Porn" being the best song intro of all time.

YouTube - Mr. Bungle - Girls of Porn (Club Lingerie 1991)

The stuff he did with Dillinger Escape Plan is brutally funny.

Cracks Me Up Everytime..

On special occasions (Father's Day, My Birthday etc..) I make my two sons perform Flight of The Conchords "The Most Beautiful Girl In The Room". This version was recorded last summer -- my 14 year old on guitar and backup vocals and my then 18 year on lead vocals. They made this recording for my iPod themselves so don't flame me about the recording quality of the clipping in one spot.

Two irresistible performances, one from each side of the Atlantic.

Jack Hodges in "Everything Is Fresh Today" (amazing performance in the chorus)

and Fats Waller in "Your Feets' Too Big" (just plain amazing).

Cheers,

I used to be a major fan of Dire Straits (still am, just a little overdosed). I think Industrial Disease and Money 4 Nothing are funny.

(And then Wierd Al makes it even funnier ...)

I think humour is often a forgotten ingredient in great pop songs ...

Some of Donovan's songs were very funny, and non-politically correct and therefore often expunged from compilations ... Intergalactic Laxative cracks me up ...

Dr. Demento comps always get good laughs.

'My Name is Larry' - I love it when his brother says

" and I AM A CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT!"

that's actually a pretty sad song, though...

'Frosty the Dope Man'

'Pussy Whipped Again' by David Allen Coe

Van Halen 'Unchained' during the breakdown when Diamond Dave is harassing someone in the booth about getting some leg tonight for sure.

Producer/Engineer/DJ extrordonnaire Howie B., who gets very little love around here had a label called Pussyfoot Records. They specialized in naughty bits. Comp called 'Suck it and See' track called "Twitchin'", hilarious.

Harry Chapin '30000 Pounds of Bananas'

oh, and this little gem from Jim Stafford, 'Cow Patty'

did you mean funna ha ha ha ha ha ha, or funny as in that boy's a little funny?

Jimi Hendrix's live version of "Gloria" where he says Noel Redding got a girl named Gloria, and her breath smell like whupped pussy.

Re: the Infectious Grooves -- The whole Sarsippius thing was hilarious. AWWW, DON'T TOUCH MA BOOTY!

Any Tim and Eric fans in the house? These guys do a show on Adult Swim called Tim and Eric Awesome Show (Great Job!). An insane but hilarious sketch show. Lots of silly songs.

Huge fan here, spent the entire last Saturday evening watching seasons 1 & 2 from my DVR with a best friend of mine who is also a #1 fan. I had ordered it from Amazon and they backordered it until season 2 came out...and both of them arrived today in the mail!!!

I already have the entire season 3 DVR'd and the first episode of season 4 (which started Feb 8th) recorded as well.

Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job is one of those things that, no matter how horrible anything could be during the day, I know I can go home and watch over and over again and melt away the seriousness of life.

They avoid pop culture references almost like the plague, which is great because you can get that stuff anywhere...!

I was blown away not only by the comedy but the impressive quality of writing in the Dewey Cox movie...I've been known to actually sit around just listening to the soundtrack...

Also, goes without saying damn near anything by Wierd Al...particularly lately, his "Confessions Part III" was mind blowing...funny, and he absolutely nails the production from the Usher track.

One more...if you can get your hands on it, Tom Waits' sort of unofficial bootleg, usually referred to as Dime Store Novels, live at Ebbets Field in Denver, in 1974...he's rather intoxicated throughout, and his between song banter is second to none, particularly when he tells the story about the 2 hobos...give it a listen
