On a whim, I decided to have some musical fun this morning.
Last month I posted a number of songs by Albert Hammond, including the 'one hit wonder' Gimme Dat Ding, performed by The Pipkins. One comment noted, "Oh great. Now that last tune is stuck in my head." Yes, it is sort of that way, isn't it?
It's far from alone as a 'nonsense' song that climbed the hit parade.
Britain has a long history of such songs. Here, from 1956, is one from the immortal Goon Show, a long-running comedy series (and a lifetime favorite of mine). Of course, it's the Ying Tong Song.
America is no slouch in the nonsense song department, either. Here's a 1958 hit, My Friend the Witchdoctor, performed by 'David Seville' (in reality Ross Bagdasarian Sr.).
From the same year, here's Sheb Wooley performing The Purple People Eater.
Ten years later, Mah Nà Mah Nà debuted in an Italian film, but won greater fame when the Muppets released their first version (one of several they would perform).
And, to close, let's have one from the new millennium: the Crazy Frog Song.
There . . . I daresay that combination has thoroughly discombobulated your Sunday morning!
