    I like the eBay one and your posting it reminded me of one of Weird Al's semi-recent songs that cracked me up: Word Crimes

    Boots Randolph did the original recording. The Benny Hill Show used it as a theme song.

    The Martian Hop by The Ran-Dells considered a one hit wonder. Released in 1963 it is somewhat a DooWop song.

    I have this on 45 somewhere in the house. Years ago (70's) I couldn't let my aunt toss it in the trash. The B side has the same song, backwards.

    I also have a weakness for Richard Cheese. He does songs you know ala Bad Vegas loungesinger.

    Sonya, I'm also a Big fan of Richard Cheese. I crack up every time I hear his "Smack My Bitch Up" even though I've heard it a thousand times.

    Last night something reminded me of this one from "The Whitest Kids You Know":

    I knew there would be someone else who had heard of him. That's another good one, but not sure I have that one in my music folder. Hmm.

    Dan rolls his eyes whenever one of his songs comes up on our playlist although I've seen him grin when he does "Holiday In Cambodia". :haha:

    I heard this on drive back home today. "I'm gonna hire a wino to decorate the House" - my Dad thought that was one of the funniest songs ever.
