Quarantine Cafe: Novelty/Humor Songs Edition

In rough chronological order, but I haven't looked every song's release year up. It's all guestimated.

Spike Jones, Cocktails for Two.

Louie Prima, Yes, We Have No Bananas.

Alvin and The Chipmunks, Christmas Don't Be Late.

Allan Sherman, Hello Muddah Hello Faddah.

Buchanan & Goodman, Flying Saucer.

David Seville, Witch Doctor.

Snoopy Versus The Red Baron.

Screamin' Jay Hawkins, I Put a Spell On You.

Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, Little Red Riding Hood.

People who aren't really Beatles fans might be surprised that they did a novelty/humor/parody song: The Beatles, You Know My Name (Look Up the Number). (Well, I mean, I guess Yellow Submarine is a novelty song too. I try not to think of that one.)

Jimmy Soul, If You Want to Be Happy All Your Life.

Napoleon XIV, They're Coming to Take Me Away (Ha-Ha).

The Intro and The Outro, The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.

The Holy Modal Rounders, Boobs-A-Lot.

Frank Zappa, Please Don't Eat the Yellow Snow.

C.W. McCall, Convoy.

Cheech & Chong, Basketball Jones.

Steve Martin, King Tut.

Black Arabs, Sex Pistols disco medley.

Rick Dees and His Cast of Idiots, Disco Duck.

A Doctor Demento deep cut, Ogden Edsel, Kinko the Clown.

Another Doctor Demento cut, Odgen Edsel, Dead Puppies Aren't Much Fun.

The Afternoon Delights, General Hospi-Tale.

Barnes & Barnes, Fish Heads. (One of the Barnes is Billy Mumy from Lost in Space.)

Pac Man Fever.

Eddie Murphy, Boogie in the Butt.

Camper Van Beethoven, Take the Skinheads Bowling.

Weird Al Yankovic, My Bologna.

Content warning. And I don't know if this counts. But this has to be a joke, right? 2 Live Crew, The F**k Shop.

Julie Brown, The Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun.

Superstars of the WWF, Land of a Thousand Dances.

Weird Al, Eat It.

Weird Al, I Lost on Jeopardy.

I think this counts: Biz Markie, Just a Friend.

Rodney Dangerfield, Rappin' Rodney.

Bestie Boys, Fight For Your Right (To Party).

Beastie Boys, Girls.

Bob & Doug McKenzie, featuring Geddy Lee, Take Off.

Bob & Doug McKenzie, the 12 Days of Christmas.

The Fat Boys, Wipe Out.

King Missile, Detachable Penis.

Liam Lynch, United States of Whatever.

The Lonely Island, The Heist.

Tenacious D, F*** Her Gently. Content warning.

The Lonely Island, Jack Sparrow.

Steel Panther, It Won't Suck Itself.

Steel Panther, Eatin' Ain't Cheatin'.

Steel Panther, The Shocker.

Content Warning on those last three, if the titles weren't warning enough.

Let's finish up with three big ones:

And the special effects are part of the charm.

So, as part of the "Junior is 7, let's force movies on him now" initiative (he turned 7 a month ago), I have ET and The Last Starfighter, both which he's loved. I've got to keep this up with more. There's Clash of the Titans, Jason and the Argonauts, The Adventures of Robin Hood, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and many more (I might leave Robocop for another year, though).

My father isn't responsible for much in terms of what I like entertainment wise - he knows not a damn thing about music, and he has never gotten into the same things I did (he regards Star Wars as "that fucking cartoon"), but one thing I did pick up from him was my appreciation of the Bond flicks.

"Red River", in my opinion, is a really great movie, and vastly under rated. "On Wings of Eagles" always makes me a little sad.
"They Were Expendable" was a somewhat "fictionalized" version of the book (they changed the names somewhat), so I guess that John Ford didn't want to pay the royalty.

You should definitely try one of their albums sometime--there's a lot more where that came from. Their semi-famous N.I.B. cover is probably the most normal thing they ever did.

Fun bit of trivia: there is one, and only one, band that has its very own ID3v1 genre tag. That band is Primus.

Some of it, but he mostly talks about people in certain movies and he "explains" parts of it. I watch some of his stuff, his titles say one thing, but he barely mentions the hook at the end and it turns out not to be very important at all. He also has comments shut off, probably to keep people from correcting his errors.

Acts
as if he's spilling "secrets," but they're usually already well known.
He also recently covered "The War Wagon" and said it's was John Wayne's
first role as a bad guy! If you haven't seen it, he's not a "bad guy"
he's just taking back what's his from the real villain. Just stuff like
that. I don't know his background, so I don't know how trustworthy he
is. Now, someone like Rob Word on "Word on Westerns" is a producer and
western actor and a long time tv host. His stuff his better than
LandumC, but I still click on Landum's videos if it's something I'm
interested in.

I've got a moustache-trimmer that's cutting-blades section is about an inch wide that I've used to trim around my ears so I can wear the freaking mask where it's mandated but it's getting really thick on top and I've got a ducktail out the back and I usually keep it quite short so it's annoying like this.

543 #485 I phoned the salon twice but the phone just kept ringing and ringing without voicemail or an answering machine to try doing that.

As I've got a neurotic bent now, I think they might have disconnected any answering machine because then maybe bylaw inspectors would say, "So you're AM is turned on even though your business has to be completely closed, eh?? You're not doing illegal styling at home visits are you?? ARE YOU?!!"

And the salon owner wouldn't know if he was being set up by a bylaw officer either, so I could see disconnecting it completely just to avoid that accusation let alone actually being set up.

It's a shame because I had a good personal excuse to talk to or leave a personal and not work-related message on the machine.

They hired Floyd, who proceeded to do an absurd kiddie show filled with double entendre and obscure Nj rock bands. As well as a group of degenerates and freaks, and called it "educational." No one gave a shit since it was unused bandwidth anyway. He broadcast out of a trailer under the transmission tower on Eagle Rock Ave, and sold T-shirts and 45s as well to make a profit.
