    In Response to Amusement in music - songs and artists that make you laugh (on purpose):
    [QUOTE]This thread is for songs and artists that make you laugh.  I added 'on purpose' because I'm not talking about songs you laugh at because they're really bad or really stupid.  I'm talking about stuff that was meant to be funny. First up for me is 'Talk to Ya Later' by The Tubes.  This is a song that always makes my wife and I laugh.  (I was fortunate enough to find someone with a sense of humor that's a lot like my own.) On paper the lyrics may look nasty or misogynist, but if you know the band and hear the song you know it's all tongue-in-cheek...mostly anyway.  Musically it's a very tasty number with great punchy hooks and some nifty soloing at the end. I met her on the Strip It was another lost weekend The band was too slick And the people were twisted So I asked her for a date She reluctantly agreed Then we went to my place And she never did leave (She won't even miss me when she's gone And that's okay with me, I'll cry later on) It's been six months She hasn't shut up once I've tried to explain She's driving me insane (She won't even miss me when she's gone And that's okay with me, I'll cry later on) Talk to ya later Don't want to hear it again tonight Talk to ya later Just save it for another guy Talk to ya later Don't want to hear it again tonight I'll just see you around Get out, I'm telling you now Do you catch my drift? What could be plainer than this? Nothing more to be said Write me a letter instead I don't mean to be cruel But I'm finished with you (She won't even miss me when she's gone And that's okay with me, I'll cry later on) Talk to ya later Don't want to hear it again tonight Talk to ya later Just save it for another guy Talk to ya later Don't want to hear it again tonight I'll just see you around

    The Rolling Stones - "Stupid Girl"  

    I'm not talking about the kind of clothes she wears
    Look at that stupid girl
    I'm not talking about the way she combs her hair
    Look at that stupid girl

    The way she powders her nose
    Her vanity shows and it shows
    She's the worst thing in this world
    Well, look at that stupid girl

    I'm not talking about the way she digs for gold
    Look at that stupid girl
    Well, I'm talking about the way she grabs and holds
    Look at that stupid girl

    The way she talks about someone else
    That she don't even know herself
    She's the sickest thing in this world
    Well, look at that stupid girl

    Well, I'm sick and tired
    And I really have my doubts
    I've tried and tried
    But it never really works out

    Like a lady in waiting to a virgin queen
    Look at that stupid girl
    She b*tches 'bout things that she's never seen
    Look at that stupid girl

    It doesn't matter if she dyes her hair
    Or the color of the shoes she wears
    She's the worst thing in this world
    Well, look at that stupid girl

    Shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up
    Shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up
    Shut-up, shut-up, shut-up

    Like a lady in waiting to a virgin queen
    Look at that stupid girl
    She b*tches 'bout things that she's never seen
    Look at that stupid girl

    She purrs like a pussycat
    Then she turns 'round and hisses back
    She's the sickest thing in this world
    Look at that stupid girl



    And as much as I thoroughly despise hip hop, and I mean _hate_ hip-hop,  Eminem's first album (the parts my friends played in their cars) was hilarious.

    Star, Star always got a rise out of me, no pun intended.

    Hank Williams Jr. did a lot of cut-up, nutty music. Some of his music has a meaning, some of it can't be taken too seriously. He did a lot of funny outragious music.

    Remember the song by Van Halen, 'Big, Bad Bill' (is Sweet William now)?

    How about J.Geils Band with "No Anchovies, Please"

    Cream - "Mother's Lament" ( the barbershop trio song).

    They could rock, but they had a sense of humor, also.
