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!
