Top Ten Weirdest Songs of the 1960sBKAllmighty The 60's was a decade where novelty songs were all the rage. Any topic, no matter how strange, could be used in songwriting. Believe it or not, a song about a three-legged donkey in space had just about as good a chance of being a hit as the latest Simon & Garfunkel love song (and to be honest, with music where it is today, I'd take a three-legged space donkey song over whatever's on the radio nowadays - at least there wouldn't be any "whoa oh oh's" plaguing the chorus of that song). Please note that the names listed beside the items on this list are the names of the individuals/groups that originally performed the songs (not necessarily the ones who wrote them).
The Top Ten
This was on Family Guy lol. - Catacorn
I thibj of Peter Griffen - FerrariDude64
A shameless ripoff of the Rivington's song "Papa-oom-mow-mow" [also on this list], but there was not enough money at stake back then for the lawyers to get involved.
Creepiest song ever written. But I still love it. - PetSounds
For some reason all eyes focused on me whenever this was played on the radio. And now I'm typing and and sending this from the asylum...
I actually still like this song! - Britgirl
I believe this is a cover version of a song from the 1920's, but is that or the song's question really important? - Billyv
The song was written for Nimoy by Charles Randolph Grean. - BKAllmighty
Spelled wrong, possibly why there is no link to a sample.
This was taken straight from the way it's spelled on Wikipedia. Typically the titles of their pages aren't spelled wrong, I don't think. - BKAllmighty
It's Faddah. "Typically," Wikipedia gets a lot wrong. Not a dependable source.
Weirdest song ever, period. - Brobusky
Not a novelty song, but a 60's heavy-rock anthem. The title was a drunken corruption of "in the Garden of Eden."
