I helped write most of the songs, so if you to take a listen, feedback would be appreciated in a major way. Thanks!

Okay, this one comes straight from the artist's MySpace account, even if it's in a low bitrate.

"Don't Download This Song", Weird Al Yankovic. That's right. Not only did Weird Al get a MySpace, he's offering a song off his next album up over there. No, it's not a fake--that is most definitely Al. And he's talking about music "piracy". He even makes a dig at Lars Ulrich, whose actions make me want to post "Enter Sandman" here out of spite.

Silly Songs

There's been some interesting omissions in the funny so far--or, at least to my ancient brain there have been, so here are a few of my favorites. And, yes, more Weird Al, who has been posted, but one can never get enough of Weird Al.

Kyle's Mom's a Bitch from South Park the Movie

No South Park?! I think I fell in love with this show from this song.

I've Got a Theory from Once More With Feeling (Buffy Musical)

While not all the music is funny in the least, this one...well, when Anya starts blaming it on the bunnies, I end up rolling every time.

Quiche Lorraine by The B-52s

I believe Rock Lobster has been posted and while I love that one and have some rather odd connections to it from high school, this one is my fave of their early '80s music.

You Put The Spring in Springfield from The Simpsons

I could have posted both these albums in their entireties, but chose a couple of my longer favorites. It's a song about a burlesque house!

We Do: The Stonecutter's Song from The Simpsons

Capt. Picard, Mayor Woody (Guttenberg), and an alien, where can you go wrong?

Two Dozen and One Greyhounds Medley from The Simpsons

Only Mr. Burns...

The Saga Begins by Weird Al

Okay, I have a penchant for Star Wars. I have a need to see George pay for the last three episodes and the gerbalization of Obi's face. This song makes me happy.

Yoda by Weird Al

It's a theme! Do two songs make a theme?

Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun by Julie Brown

No Julie Brown?! OMG, every song is just too funny. I remember the video for this one. I could so see my homecoming queen pulling this.

Make It Through The 80s by Julie Brown

I woke up every school day in college one year and put on this album to this song as I got dressed. Yes, album. *g*

Enjoy!

    Cell Block Tango from Chicago
Steelers Believe

Parodies!!!

Opening up with something that my fellow Stillers fans will get: Puhlahmalu - From a local act in Pittsburgh known as MrDevious, "Puhlahmalu" spawned from a mispronunciation of Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu's name by, if I remember correctly, an analyst on FOX. Done to the tune of the Muppets' "Mahna Mahna" song, it's kind of old (seriously - Antwaan Randle-El hasn't been a Steeler since, like, March), but still incredibly funny.

The Firm - "Star Trekkin'" - I cannot believe this hasn't been posted yet. Or maybe it has and I missed it. But here it is. One of my faves.

Star Trek Rhapsody - Another Trek parody, this one to the tune of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." I think I've listened to it too much, because I pretty much have it memorized.

Tenacious D's rendition of the Star Trek theme song. This is too funny for words, really. Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek wrote lyrics for the theme song to the Original Series. The lyrics, obviously, were never used. This is Tenacious D's version of the song - with the lyrics.

And lastly: Lords of the Rhymes. I have no idea who did this. If anyone knows, please tell me, because I have it on my iPod under Unknown Artist. In any case, it's hilarious. Basically a rap tribute to the Lord of the Rings. And I loves it. :)

ETA: the last one was done by a group who also called themselves Lords of the Rhymes. Good to know, lol.

Bring the funny.

Just a few for right now.

There's already been a bit of Veggietales, but I had to post a few classics. (The original "Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" video is here, btw.)

The videos have an "intermission" with a bit by Larry the Cucumber: "Silly Songs with Larry". The first one was "The Water Buffalo Song" www.sendspace.com/file/2hmrnt "Everybody's got a water buffalo/Yours is fast but mine is slow/Oh where'd we get them, I don't know/But everybody's got a water buffalooooooo!", which ends with the producer, Reginald Archibald (an asparagus) telling him to "Stop being so silly!"

Then there's the classic: "The Hairbrush Song" www.sendspace.com/file/fk3ktf which is an operetta about Larry's inability to find his hairbrush post-shower. Yes, indeed. That old saga.

My favorite pointless Animaniacs song, "Lake Titicaca". www.sendspace.com/file/rjwb7l You can guess what it's about.

And finally a non-animated selection. *gasp* "Basted in Blood", a protest song about Thanksgiving by Sarah McLachlan and "Cinder Calhoun"/Ana Gasteyer. www.sendspace.com/file/b6qzmt Aired during an SNL in 1997, the week before Thanksgiving. Sarah was the musical guest. "We gather together/For yams, beans, and cranberry sauce/But have you given much thought lately/To the turkey Holocaust"

Enjoy.

Comedy!

The Arrogant Worms are a Canadian musical comedy trio. I think that's really all that needs to be said for them, other than this - if you ever get the chance to see them live take it. I guarantee you will laugh until you can't breathe.
There was already one Arrogant Worms song posted to this theme, I've got my fingers crossed for many more, as my own collection is depressingly lacking.

The songs -

Canada's Really Big - The Worm's version of a national anthem, extolling our country's indisputable virtue. It's big. Really big. Bigger than almost all other countries, even a continent or two. As they say, "The economy is lousy, we've barely got an army, but we can still stand proudly, 'cause Canada's really big!'
A must for any patriotic Canadian.

Forgive Us, We're Canadian is another patriotic ballad. In response to a critic who said that their show had 'too much Canadian content'. Probably will only be funny if you are in fact Canadian.

The Last Saskatchewan Pirate is about a farmer who goes bankrupt and has his land taken, and so turns pirate instead of resorting to welfare. Sung in an upbeat 'yo ho' style so you notice the hilarity, less notice the social commentary.

A night In Dildo will be the last Canada-centric song in this list, this one Newfoundland-oriented, more specifically absurd place names that exist there. And yes, Dildo does exist. I've seen the sign. Friends had a Christmas card family portrait taken under it.

Jesus' Brother Bob - "I guess you haven't heard of me, I wouldn't be surprised. I bet you know my relatives, their names will never die. My mother is a saint and my brother is a god. But all I am is Jesus' Brother Bob".
My personal favourite moment is when Bob celebrates that 'finally people will get to know me for me.' since his brother is dead on the cross, followed by a greeting - 'Hi Bob' 'Hey Judas'.
Irreverent and really really funny.

Carrot Juice Is Murder - Apparently this is a parody of an animal rights song I've never heard. A quest to free vegetables from our oppresive regime. By any means necessary, up to and including murder for the sake of saving one more cauliflower. A stirring cry to justice for a repressed minority!

Let There Be Guns is an eminently logical argument for the right to bear arms.
I swear. Really. How can you fault the logic of 'nobody'd ever get shot, cuz everybody'd have a gun!'? Flawless.
Until someone decides they need a rifle......

I Am Cow - A choral tribute to the virtues of the cow. An excellent example of totally absurd music with pretty three part harmonies. Has to be heard to be believed.
