Silly Songs We Love


There have been many myTakes and Questions on music recently. But I have not seen one yet on Silly Songs, so I thought now is the time. These songs were pretty much just nonsense, but they were fun and have lasted for decades.

Silly Songs We Love

Some of my favorite silly songs follow:

Ray Stevens had many others beside this one. But he was certainly not alone in giving us Silly Songs.

Every Halloween we heard Bobby "Boris" Pickett with


Chuck Berry entertained his audiences with

After a few of those we were singing

I have many more that seem to have a life of their own, but I would like to hear what Silly Songs you remember fondly (or not so fondly).

    Now that I've pasted a few links I don't actually know what I've put here. But some are nonsense, some are just, nobody ever really realised that nobody knows what it's about. Or can tell.

    • Thank you. good choices. I preferred the original Witch Doctor, but this one was ice, too. Your second video is not available in the US, so did not get to check it out. :-)

    • Yeah, it was great, I got to have a go at the nerve tester, not that I went out very far, my grandparents wouldn't let me. But that's okay, I'm not sure I would have let myself.
      And I surprised myself with just how much energy I had, I was jumping from rock to rock and hanging as far over the edge of the cliff as I dared. Quite a view from up there.

      My phone also has no memory left to spare after all the photos I took.

    • Lifetime memories! :-)

    • Well, it is different. but don't get caught singing "Little Girls" near a kindergarten or you may pend some jail time for being a pedophile (which was even mentioned in comments with the music video I saw)

    • Haha yea!

  • Electric Light Orchestra, Queens, Pink Floyd :) ?

    • I definitely like ELO and Pink Floyd. Do you mean Queen, have not heard of Queens. Definitely like Queen. Anyway, they are good, but I don't know of any "Silly Songs" from them, which is what I am talking about in this Take.

    • So do I, but there are some recent groups that I do like. I love Enya and feel bad that they (she) are not putting any more songs out. But there are also many other recent songs that I like, plus I like certain music that is geared to certain instruments. Love bagpipes and marimbas!

    • Today I miss musicians using such classic and old instruments like ELO, Queen and Pink Floyd did.

  • Miley Cyrus songs should be in there. I don't like any of them personally, but most people do...

    • That is one that created all kinds of funny images in your mind long before any of his videos on that were out. Absolutely hilarious, The Mississippi Squirrel Revival can be seen at https://youtu.be/K16fG1sDagU
      Thank you for mentioning this one! :-)
