    songs that are just plain fun

    kind of a follow up to the songs that make you smile. These might make you smile, but for different reasons, maybe some harmless wicked twist that is all in good fun. Or maybe there is some inside joke that you share with someone and you wink at your friend or s.o.

     A few I can think of in this vein:

    Everyone's Gone to the Movies - Steely Dan
    Watching the Detectives - Elvis Costello
    Hot for Teacher - Van Halen

    Pretty much the entire catalogue of the Cramps.

    'Rock Lobster' by the B-52's.

    'Wipe Out' by the Surfaris.

    'Louie, Louie' by the Kingsmen

    ...and 'Farmer Louie' by the Trashmen ( on the box set, they do this song because the singer claims they had requests for 'Farmer John' and 'Louie, Louie', but they don't do either of those songs).

    I was just humming that in my head. Now for sure it will take at least a day to get rid of it.

    Hot for Teacher is definitely on the list

    I Am The Walrus
    Rocky Raccoon

    For whatever crazy reason, I think of the song 'Turning Japanese' more often than I should. It is a funny, silly kind of song and as jesseyeric states , once you get it in your head, it stays for awhile.

    A big thumbs up to jkj for thinking of this one.

    I have a few more:

    'Our House' by Madness

    'Leopardskin Pillbox Hat' by Bob Dylan

    'Lather' by the Jefferson Airplane

    'Istanbul was Constantinople' by They Might Be Giants

    'Andy Warhol' by David Bowie
