"Existential Blues" Tom Stankus. Too long and not funny.
"The Shart Song" Donnie Baker. Proof that Bob and Tom have jumped the shark.

I agree with Dolly - anything by the Chipmunks. (Note: Both the Chipmunks and "The Witch Doctor" were creations of Ross Bagdasarian.)

Chuck Berry, "My Ding-a-Ling". When Berry came to our college campus, he sang that song but not "Maybelline."

Wanda Jackson's "Santa Domingo" is about as mind-boggling spacey as you can get: an Okie rock 'n' roll chick singing a ballad in German about a Mexican couple is downright WEIRD.

Really? "Father Christmas, Do Not Touch Me"? You don't even like the last verse? "He's a most immoral San-ta! He's a most immoral San-ta!" Fair enough, personal likes and dislikes called that for a reason.

Napoleon XIV's horrible "They're Coming to Take Me Away (Ha-Ha)". What a garbage song !

Can't agree that everything by Alvin & the Chipmunks is bad. "The Harmonica Song" is side-splitting.

Oh let's be up front about it. EVERY Ray Stevens song ever is irritating. It's worse now since he's gone political.

"Don't look, Ethel!" indeed.

And the worst version of it was by Pee-Wee Herman. With Peter Griffin a very close second.

Give me unhelpfuls if you must, but here's the proof!

And I can't link the Peter Griffin one as Fox gets stroppy over things like that.

Sorry, my phone conked out. Here is the edited post:

I agree about "Surfin' Bird"; the band was well named.

I like "They're Coming to Take Me Away Ha Ha," but the filler songs on the album are pure trash.

"How Much is That Doggie in the Window?"
"I'm in Love with a Big Blue Frog"
"The Little Blue Man" - if God is merciful, I'll never hear that song again.

There was a singer of novelty songs in the late 50's who was very brassy - any brassier and she'd have been made of metal. She sang "Left Right Out of Your Heart". She also sang a song in which the woman has a series of dreams about a man who "looked just like you," and a song which said that if you were some great man of history, and married to me, you would never have done your great accomplishment, because you'd be home with me. Anything from her.
