I been gettin' down to "They're Coming To Take Me Away (Ha Ha)" by Napolean XIV. The flip is the same song but backwards... like if you just played the "A" side in reverse. The label on the flip is also bacwards. They really put a lot of effort into it.

Goddamn Great Drum Music

There's not even a record inside. It's a piece of carboard in the shape of a record that has some weird greeting on it. The cover has a bunch of naked bitches on it though!

The first record I ever stole was the "Witch Doctor". Got it from music class in the 7th grade. Still have it. Btw, I stopped stealing things a long time ago, so you don't have to be afraid to invite me over.

Steve Martin's "King Tut" is not only my favorite novelty record, it's one of my all-time favorite records, period. When I saw the King Tut exhibit in Ft. Lauderdale last month I was singing that song all through the museum. What a douche. "He gave his life for tourism."

Andy Rotzz has this awesome Rhino LP called "the worst songs ever recorded" or something like that. First track is "Now I Wanna Be Your Dog" sung by some three stooges imitators. I highly recommend this record to fans of the novelty genre.

I have Vince Vance & The Valients "Bomb Iran" (to the tune of Barbara Ann) on 45- that's a good one. "Goin' to a mosque, gonna throw some rocks, gonna turn Iran into a parking lot..."

I'm going to make a "Killed By Novelty" mixtape one of these days.

Good Punk Rock IS Novelty,especially with deviant themes.

The Deviants, because you can't tell if their records are supposed to be novelty.

I was convinced Eminem was a novelty act until I heard his second cd.

Amazing Grace! Now that's a funny-ass song, especially when all the generic black chicks wanna do those goddamn vocal scales up & down like a fuckin' guitar solo.Elvis too.I gotta turn that shit up louder than a mothafucka!

Novelty?? Now you're talkin!! There's nothing more fun than drunken nights turning on uptight friends to some silly music. Just off the top of my head...

I love song poems. Check out the "Beat of the Traps" LP or that latest CD song poem comp "Do You Know the Difference Between Big Wood and Brush". Has anyone seen the PBS documentary on this? Jimmy Carter says yes!!! There's a great website at www.songpoemmusic.com .

I second that Rhino LP "Worst Songs Ever Recorded" -- mine came with a barf bag.

One of my most favorite records from when I was little (and still is one a fave) Nervous Norvus' "Transfusion" b/w "Dig". There's a great CD compilation put out by Norton with some other amazing shit on it -- "Ape Call", "I Like Girls", "The Fang" and one of the best drunkard songs ever "The Blackout Song".

I can't stop laughing every time I hear the Jim Backus song "Delicious". It's flip side, "I Need A Vacation" is just as good.

Shit, I can't wait to get off work and crack open a few and laugh my ass off.

I've been wanting to put together a nice list of Halloween novelty songs. Any help here? Bazooka Joe?

Keep 'em comin!

Anybody heard "Inferno!" by the John Buzon Trio? It's a famous organ lounge record, I think it was in Incredibly Strange Music, but anyway... there's a 45 of his and one side is the story of the three little pigs hith a slow mellow instrumental backing. The guy telling the story gradually increases the speed of his narration until he's doing one of those "fastest talker in the world" deals and when the big bad wolf goes into the hot pot at the bottom of the chiminy yeah the fire place, that's what it's called... anyway, the fast talker screams YOW! and he keeps tra la laing in it. NUTS!

Check out Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham / Fox in Socks" LP. There's a slow version and a fast version of "Fox in Socks". I swear that the fast version sounds like one of the first rap battles. The dude is flying on these completely twisted tongue tales. Plus he's totally white as this was from the mid-60s. "Green Eggs and Ham" is pretty cool in a jazzy beatnik sorta way. There's one listed now on eBay here (not my listing):

Yeah..these are great. I picked up 5 or 6 from this series a few years back used for $7 a pop and was very happy.

Da Yoopers upper peninsula shenanigans. Holy shit "Songs For Fart Lovers" has the song "I Never Heard My Mom Fart" and "I'm A Turd" on it. Delete some Television from your hardrive and share this on Soulseek please!

the Buckner & Garcia lp with "Pac-Man Fever" on it has 7 other songs on it about video games and it kills.

Dr. Demento's Dementia Royale record has "Punk Polka" on it.

Jim Backus "Delicious" is sooo awesome. I gotta find that again immediately. I had all those K-Tel comps (Dumb Ditties et al.) I still grab em when I spot 'em. Haunted House, Little Red Riding Hood, Ape Call, transfusion... classic!
Posted: Mar 18, 2006 10:16 pm
Jim Backus "Delicious" is sooo awesome.

Seriously!! This was always on the playlist for those "You wanna come up and listen to some records?" last-call afterhours parties.

Some of that Da Yoopers stuff is pretty great. Here there is this guy called Benny Grunch who is more or less the Yoopers of New Orleans. There are a LOT of great Cajun novelty songs too. If you go here and listen long enough you'll hear some: http://www.warpradio.com/Tuner.asp?id=4275

Hey nobody's said shit about THE CURLY SHUFFLE!!!!!! Maybe because it's so awesome that it has completely eclipsed novelty status and is now regarded as classic rock. In my mind, at least.

How 'bout any local novelty songs? Anyone in Cleveland circa 1986 will remember "Bernie Bernie" - an ode to Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar to the tune of "Louie Louie". Anyone have a copy of that???

In Portland, we had the "Rip City" rap, an homage to the Trailblazers.

At Louisiana Music Factory, I think there is an entire section for New Orleans Saints novelty songs.

by The Ivy 3..I love that song..

I don't think this counts as a novelty record, but I was introduced to Hulk Hogan's "Hulk Rules" album last night, and it was incredible.

I have a sad story to tell you.
It may hurt your feelings a bit.
Last night when I walked into my bathroom,
I stepped in a big pile of ...

Shaving cream, be nice and clean.
Shave everyday and you'll always look keen.

I think I'll break off with my girlfriend.
Her antics are queer I'll admit.
Each time I say, "Darling, I love you,"
She tells me that I'm full of ...

Shaving cream, be nice and clean.
Shave everyday and you'll always look keen.

Our baby fell out of the window.
You'd think that her head would be split.
But good luck was with her that morning;
She fell in a barrel of ...

Shaving cream, be nice and clean.
Shave everyday and you'll always look keen.

An old lady died in a bathtub;
She died from a terrible fit.
In order to fulfill her wishes,
She was buried in six feet of ...

Shaving cream, be nice and clean.
Shave everyday and you'll always look keen.

When I was in France with the army,
One day I looked into my kit.
I thought I would find me a sandwich,
But the darn thing was loaded with ...

Shaving cream, be nice and clean.
Shave everyday and you'll always look keen.

And now, folks, my story is ended.
I think it is time I should quit.
If any of you feel offended,
Stick your head in a barrel of ...

Shaving cream, be nice and clean.
Shave everyday and you'll always look keen.
