We’re getting nutty today with a new list! It’s East Side Dave’s Top 5 Novelty Songs Of All Time! Enjoy!
5.) “Born In East L.A.” by Cheech & Chong (1984)
The hysterical comedy duo dropped this parody which they later turned into a movie of the same name.
4.) “The Streak” by Ray Stevens (1974)
Before “Weird” Al emerged onto the novelty song scene, Ray Stevens had this gigantic hit about…well…streaking.
3.) “Disco Duck” by Rick Dees (1976)
Radio DJ Rick Dees scored a massive hit with this silly novelty song about a duck who apparently enjoys disco music.
2.) “Fish Heads” by Barnes & Barnes (1978)
Just who were Barnes & Barnes? I can tell you one thing…they weren’t exactly Simon & Garfunkel. No. Rather than singing about America or New York like Paul and Art did…the mysterious Barnes & Barnes wrote about…fish heads. Legendary.
1.) “Eat It” by “Weird” Al Yankovic (1984)
The undisputed king of novelty songs…”Weird” Al hit this one out of the park. It’s his “Day In The Life” or “Stairway To Heaven”. It’s “Eat It”. Behold.
