THE BEST Novelty Songs

Green Child O’ Mine

Green Child O’ Mine

Novelty band The Merkins celebrate the second season of The Mandalorian with a parody of the Guns N’ Roses track Sweet Child O’ Mine, with the lyrics rewritten to be about everyone’s favorite 50-year-old child, Baby Yoda. The lead vocals are spot-on thanks to special guest singer Alvi Robinson of the rock band The L.A. Maybe.

Chuffed (Dad Song)

Chuffed (Dad Song)

We wish that people used the word “chuffed” more here in America. But in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand, it’s a popular term for being excited about something. So with the language lesson over with, enjoy as Aunty Donna sings about some things that get dads really chuffed.

The Legend of Neil Norman Wilkinson

The Legend of Neil Norman Wilkinson

“He used his lungs… to breathe in oxygen!” Elliot Mason presents a song about a totally ordinary guy doing totally ordinary things. Accompanied by a playful animation by Justin Mason, the silly lyrics remind us of the sort of thing Monty Python’s Flying Circus might have created. From the album Life Is Like a Movie.

Alfred Matthew Yankovic

Alfred Matthew Yankovic

“Weird Al” Yankovic has already done a great send-up of the musical juggernaut Hamilton with “The Hamilton Polka.” As good as that is, we also love The Weird Alphabet’s parody, which is more of a prototypical novelty song, changing the lyrics to tell the origin story of the man behind “Another One Rides the Bus.”

Puddles: Stairway to Gilligan’s Island

Puddles: Stairway to Gilligan’s Island

Back in 1978, Little Roger and the Goosebumps figured out that the lyrics to the theme from Gilligan’s Island lined up perfectly with Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven. While we loved the novelty of the classic mashup, Puddles Pity Party really ramped up the vocals and theatricality. Oh, and on a related note…

Bin Guy

Bin Guy

Is it possible to write a song that only uses three-letter words, and actually have it make sense? Musician Brett Domino proves he’s clearly up to the challenge with his track “Bin Guy,” a song about unrequited love and taking the trash out. From the album Keytar Your Heart.

Never Google Your Symptoms

Never Google Your Symptoms

We’ve all been there at one point or another. You’re feeling off, and you’ve got an unusual mix of symptoms that you can’t quite figure out. Swedish physician and novelty musician Henrik Widegren reminds us about the worst possible thing you can do when you’re sick. From the album Medical Melodies And Surgical Songs.
