Dr. Demento Presents: Greatest Novelty Records of All Time, Vol. 3: 1960's

by Dr. Demento



Dr. Demento Presents: Greatest Novelty Records of All Time, Vol. 3: 1960's presents the decade's funniest singles, some of which -- Napoleon XIV's "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!," Bobby "Boris" Pickett's "Monster Mash," Allan Sherman's "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah!," and the Trashmen's "Surfin' Bird" -- are still classics today. The '60s were arguably the finest years for novelty rock, and the tracks that didn't endure in the pop culture canon are still pretty funny, as Rusty Warren's "Bounce Your Boobies" and Dr. West's Medicine's "The Eggplant That Ate Chicago" prove. Lonnie Donegan's "Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour (On the Bedpost Overnight)?," Ray Stevens' "Guitarzan," the Hollywood Argyles' "Alley Oop," and Tiny Tim's "Tiptoe Through the Tulips With Me" are some of the other highlights of this fun collection, which is perfect for anyone who likes their nostalgia served with a comedic twist.
