After reading Kat at Angel Who Swears’ post on surviving her childhood from the 1970’s and then reading Robbie Yate’s funny poem entitled “Cold,” not to mention just reading one of the funniest damned posts from Lille Sparven called, “An Exciting Geographical Discovery” — well, how could I not be inspired to share funny songs that I remember from my childhood. (If you haven’t already read these posts, all you have to do is click on the highlighted portion and it will take you directly to their posts — and, please, let them know what you think! We all need love and encouragement from you! Also, if you like what you read here or in the others’ posts, please tell family and friends to check us out!)
Our house was always full of music when I was growing up and, of course, these tunes were catchy and easy to sing along with or they had a funny story to tell. Except the last song, “They’re Coming to Take Me Away.” I gotta admit, as a little girl, that song terrified me. It’s a little intense. Ah, good times.
Mom and Dad played all of these songs on the radio or our Sony stereo. Some of of these songs hail back to well before I was born. Anyway, I hope that for those of you who are old enough to remember them, it will put a smile on your face. For those of you who have never heard some or any of these — well, it’s about time, doncha think? How else are you gonna be well-rounded if you don’t educate yourself with truly fun music?
Of course, this isn’t a complete list of silly songs. I’m hoping that you will share your favorite funny or silly songs in the comment section below. Or maybe you’d like to share a favorite memory that these or other songs bring back. Anyway, as we head toward the end of August and another summer, I thought these might be fun. I know I enjoyed putting this baker’s dozen together for this post. Also, a special shout out to my blogger bud, Allen at The Midnight Goose, who without his help, I could never have provided you with anything more than a link. Thanks, again, Allen!
Last but not least, I dedicate “Hair” by the Cowsills to my big brother, Richard! Just cuz.
I hope y’all enjoy!
