    My all time favorite as kid was Open The Door Richard by Dusty Fletcher

    A few others:

    Alan Sherman - Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah
    Coasters - Charlie Brown
    Steve Martin - King Tut
    Chuck Berry - My Ding A Ling

    and who can forget, though many have tried, Tiny Tim's - Tip Toe Thru The Tulips?

    That's one novelty song I think I can do without. It was funny for a short while when I was a kid, but now it just grates on me every time I hear it.

    I always got a kick out of Eat It by Weird Al. At the time, Beat It was soooooo overplayed and Eat It kinda took the edge off. :)

    Another dumb one I liked (don't bother seeking it if you have not heard (of) it, you will be disappointed!) TV Dinner by Dragonfly. That one is best appreciated when under the influence of, well, something. :)

    I like the "1-877 Kars For Kids... K. A. R. S... KARS for Kids" song... every time I hear that jingle, I sing it for the rest of the day!

    Though the song sticks with me, I hear this isn't really a quality charity with a small amount of the proceeds actually reaching the target.

    Take this Job and Shove it.

    She got the Gold Mine. I got the Shaft.

    Can't Touch This -- that song got on my ever loving nerves.

    "Pac man Fever" was a definite favorite when I was in grade school!

    I remember Jim Rome, on his radio show, used to play a song called "Yakety Sax" that would inevitably chew up about an hour of discussion from callers. I think it was from Benny Hill, IIRC.

    Yakety Sax (sp?) is old! I remember it from when I was maybe 10 yo, not to admit my real age. I don't think Benny Hill was around then.

    Another Benny Hill tune I like is the Ronnie Aldrich rendition of Fur Elise. I can't ever hear that tune, anywhere, without imagining Benny chasing that bald guy and patting him on the head! :)

    Another game related tune about Space Invaders:

    He's hooked, he's hooked, his brain is cooked.

    That could be about Vegas, too! :p

    I always liked the Weird Al Yankovich stuff. This is one of my favourites.
