Any favorite songs that you really like that are actually embarrasing to anyone else around you?

I happened to really like CSN&Y's "Our House," which my wife refers to as "That Wimpy Song!"
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

Todd Rundgren, "We gotta get you a woman"

Has the line refering to girl friends, "They may be stupid, but they sure are fun!"

My wife was offened the first time I played it, and I happen to love all of Todd's work

Oh no!!! Not Political Correctness in songs and music now . . .

Many years ago we quickly realised that we were not going to use Frankie Goes To Hollywood's "Relax" for our children's discos.

However, I personally find it rather entertaining. There have been anti-war songs I've disagreed with. Some old fashioned love songs that make you want to vomit! Some songs used for National or Political purposes . . .

I believe free expression in music should remain; after all we have to look at what passes for art in Galleries (upon entering the Tate in Liverpool a member of staff advised us to contribute to the collection ON THE WAY OUT and NOT on the way in!) Needless to say they did not get a penny. PC in comedy I detect is starting to 'soften' at last. Long live freedom to express (and to criticise!)

I know all the words from any song by ABBA or by the Carpenters.
I know "C is for Cookie", "The Alphabet Song", and "The Aligator King and His Seven Sons."
The list goes on, but I won't.
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

I have no pride or shame in the music that I enjoy.
I enjoy some of Tiny Tim's old songs, like "On The Old Front Porch"
I also like some of the old demented songs like "Dead Dog Rover", "Fish Heads", "Shaving Cream" etc...

Tiny Tim - !

Is that the guy that recorded "Tip-Toe Through The Tulips" all those years ago?

My kids used to roll about in laughter when I used to sit at the piano and play and sing "I'm Writing a Letter To Daddy" from the movie 'What ever Happened to Baby Jane'. They may just react differently now though . . .

Songs from Ren & Stimpy, that incredibly wacked cartoon. My wife hides her face and tries to slink away if my best friend and I get started on these:

The "Happy Happy Joy Joy" song, complete with the adlib lines "I'll teach ya to be happy — I'll teach your grandma to suck eggs!", and "I told ya I'd shoot - but you wouldn't listen!"

The "Log" jingle ("it's better than bad, it's good!")

And most especially their truly bizarre "Canadian Kilted Yaksmen" anthem. Great to belt out in a bar when you are a few sheets to the wind.

I must admit I am laughing at the thought of a guy who looks like dpe on TV appearing on Sesame Street singing with mupets. <g>

BTW my favorite has always been the Alphebet song as sung by big bird... you know...

"abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz is the most remarkable word I've ever seen." and my daughter (5) loves when I sing "I've got two eyes"

After the turn of the century,
In the clear blue skies over Germany,
Came a roar and a thunder men had never heard,
Like the screaming sound of a big war bird.

Up in the sky, a man in a plane,
Baron Von Richtoffen was his name.
80 men tried, and 80 men died.
Now they're burried together on the countryside.

In the nick of time, a hero arose.
A funny looking dog with a big black nose.
He flew into the sky to seek revenge,
But the Baron shot him down...
Curses, foiled again!

Now Snoopy had sworn that he'd get that man.
So he asked the Great Pumpkin for a new battle plan.
He challenged the German to a real dog fight,
And when the Baron was laughing...Snoopy got him in his sights!

The Bloody Red Baron was in a fix.
He tried everything but he run out of tricks.
Snoopy fired once...then he fired twice.
And the Bloody Red Baron went spinning out of sight.

With me so far? Remember the chorus?

(My thanks to the Royal Guardsmen)
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;

Not too many songs can get three sequels!
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.

I always loved the follow-up to that Snoopy song, with the Red Baron and the Christmas bells...

Arrrrgh, you actually LIKE that thing?

My *worst* Christmas song would have to be "The Night Santa Went Crazy" by Weird Al Yankovitch. (And I happen to LIKE Al a lot!)
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.

Several years -- and jobs -- ago, I got into the habit, when I noticed that everyone else was getting uptight or crabby, of belting out:

Sunny day, sweepin' the clouds away...

Usually got some really interesting reactions. And if not, I could just keep going till they couldn't stand it anymore.

Kill 'em with kindness.

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
A beautiful day for a neighbor
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
It's a neighborly day in this beautiwood
A neighborly day for a beauty
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?

I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you
I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you so,

Let's make the most of this beautiful day
Since we're together we might as well say
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won't you be my neighbor?
Won't you please
Won't you please
Please won't you be my neighbor?


Rest In Peace Fred Rogers. We miss you. Smile

In general: Sugar, ah, honey, honey.... You are my candy girl... And you've got me wanting you.

For Christmas ('tis the season...): Doug and Bob McKenzie sing, "The Twelve Days of Christmas".
