Fast Food

I was at a fast food place a few days ago (I won't say which one), but
I had an experience that reminded me of this 1982 novelty song...

Fast Food - Stevens & Grdnic

I recently watched an episode of Batman (Adam West / Burt Ward) and remembered some audio tracks that came out at that time...

These are decidedly different (ouch that is) so listen at your own risk...

Boy Wonder I Love You (Burt Ward with Frank Zappa)

The Riddler (Frank Gorshin)


I've added new cuts to most of the previous blog posts...

The Metal Muncher!

Betty Davis Eyes

Most of you are familiar with the Kim Carnes cut from the 80's...

Kim Carnes - Betty Davis Eyes

but here are a few different takes on the tune...

Rotunda - Colonel Sanders Thighs
Bruce Baum - Marty Feldman Eyes

Existential Blues

I stumbled across this little gem... from 1982... whatever this guy was on when he wrote this tune I'd be interested!... I love the "Wizard of OZ" references....

Tom 'T-Bone' Stankus - Existential Blues

However... while the above cut is quite excellent... the cut below is, on a scale of 1 to 10, about a (-5)...

Tom 'T-Bone' Stankus - Existential Blues Part 2

Weird Al Yankovic

No novelty song collection would be complete without a few Weird Al cuts...

Weird Al - Yoda
Weird Al - Still Billy Joel
Weird Al - Another One Rides the Bus
Weird Al - Stop Draggin My Car Around
Weird Al - Happy Birthday
Weird Al - I Want a New Duck

If you like these, Weird Al has many a CD out there with similar material!...
He even made a movie in 1989... "UHF"
