OK, this thread is not devoted to "Best songs", "Most moving piece of music" or suchlike deep issues.
Rather, it is devoted to delightful (or ridiculous) trivia music.
I'll start out with two:
The incomparable Eartha Kitt and her "Where is my man?":
[MEDIA=youtube]abMx3EoXCr0[/MEDIA][/URL]
and Boney M's tune that contains the poetic gem "Rasputin-Russia's greatest love machine":

Enjoy at your peril! :smile:

This is clearly the best version of "Tainted Love":

And while we're at it, here's the original (banned)"Relax" video:

http://www.harrynilsson.com/page-son-of-schmilsson-stereophonic-lp.html" [Broken] by Harry Nilsson is full of good spoof songs.

There is the country sounding "Joy"

in part:
"Joy to the world was a beautiful girl, but to me Joy meant only sorrow"


Rockn' "You'r Breaking my heart"

"You'r breaking my heart, your tearing it apart so F... You."

I could not help of think of "Spaceman" while the Astronauts were stuck on the Space station after the Columbia diaster:

"Going round and round when you go'na let me come down."

The war protest song. "Ambush"

"We sang our song until the enemy opened fire, now we don't sing our song no more" sic

"I'd rather be Dead" about being an invalid sang with back up by a chior from an old folks home."

I"d rather be dead, I'd rather be dead then wet the bed"

Sorry for not having all the lyrics, or even links to them. I was amazed to hear "You'r Breaking My Heart" in the sound track of "Breakfast on Pluto" a pretty recent movie.

My favorite rendition of Wagner's classic is the bugs bunny "What's opera Doc?"

Here is the horrid classic "Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" by Leonard Nemoy, with an additional verse I haven't heard before. Unfortunately (?), I haven't found the original video that contains this additional verse:
