Top Ten Tuesday! The Top Ten Funniest Songs I Know

Chances are that you don’t know many of the artists or songs on this list, but if you want to add something new to your iPhone that will bring a smile to your face when it comes on unexpectedly, I strongly recommend these songs. I’ve excluded parody songs. I’ve provided links to the Youtube videos so you can play them while you read blogs. (Warning: some songs may contain PG-13 language or themes)

10. 88 Lines about 44 Women by The Nails: This song is peppy, upbeat, and from the 80’s but stands the test of time. It’s still in my collection. Video

9. Stacy’s Mom by Fountains of Wayne: This is “Mrs. Robinson” for a new generation.

8. King of Spain by Moxy Fruvous: A hilarious and underrated Canadian band from the 1990’s. Video

7. Chicks Dig It by Chris Cagle: Just so you don’t think I only listen to obscure alternative music I threw in a country song: Video

6. Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-Lot: An ode to well…you know. Video

5. The Bad Touch by Bloodhound Gang: A ditty honoring sexual euphemisms. If you are easily offended, don’t listen. Video

4. Pretty Fly for a White Guy by The Offspring: The hilarious and true story of my life. Video

3. Girlfriend in a Coma by The Smiths: An amazingly peppy and upbeat song considering the topic. Video

2. Connecticut is for F—— by Jesus H. Christ and The Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse: This always makes any list of my favorite songs of any kind. There was no official video. The one I’ve linked to looks home made. Video


1. Pantera Fans in Love by Nerf Herder: Truth be told, this band could have placed several songs on the list. This isn’t the funniest oone, but the other was so inappropriate that I chose not to sully #ThePhilFactor with it. Video

As always, it’s tough limiting these lists to ten. What are some of your favorite funny songs?

Have a great Tuesday! ~Phil

  1. One of my favorites is Scotty Doesn’t Know by Lustra, it’s the song that is played all through EuroTrip.
    Another great list!

  2. all great choices for their own reasons –

  3. I haven’t hear of most of these songs, she says crawling out from under her rock. I can think of funny videos for songs -like The Foo Fighters, Walk, but the song isn’t funny itself!

  4. In 1991 Meryn Cadell released “The Sweater”. Still holds its humour after all these years.

  5. Excellent list, Phil. I always liked Stacie’s Mom.

  6. Hah! I laugh at “I got stoned and I missed it”, by Dr Hook, as I recall.

  7. 9 and 6 and 4 and 3
    All quite familiar to me
    And because your judgment is the best
    Hope i’ve time to see the rest
    But if its funny songs you crave
    Check out the CheeseBergens’ Bandcamp page.

  8. I knew four of those. 🙂

  9. You should check out these ones:
    Business Time by Flight of the Conchords
    Gonna Make You Happy Tonight by Tripod

    And you’ll probably enjoy some of the stuff by Axis of Awesome. My favourite of theirs is the 4 Chord Song, but it’s probably not their funniest.

  10. I tried to convince my friend (years ago) to name her baby girl Stacy, so she could be Stacy’s mom. She argued that the joke would not age well, but I think time will prove me right.

  11. I can’t believe you’ve included Moxy Fruvous, as most people I know have never heard of them! I saw them at a street fair in Decatur, Illinois in the late ’90s. My friends and I became instant fans, bought their CDs, and saw them several times in the midwest in the coming years. We even saw them in Chicago during my bachelorette weekend in 2000. Thanks for the blast from the past! (My personal favorite was My Baby Loves a Bunch of Authors
