For me it's Boris The Spider by The Who - that song is well silly.

One of two.... David Bowie - "The Laughing Gnome" and Nirvana - "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Neither of them have any meaning whatsoever - but they're both so funnily silly daft stupid.

Many of the songs by Queen - ever really listened to the lyrics in "Bohemian Rapsody"?

Why Don't We Do it in the Road? by The Beatles. Two whole lines of lyrics--and pretty self-evident!

Don't believe me?

It's the One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Eater....Which is just ridiculous.

Though MacArthur Park....aka "Someone Left the Cake Out in the Rain" is up there.

It's the One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Eater....Which is just ridiculous.

Okay, now that song is stuck in my head along with:

Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini by Brian Hyland

Rubber Biscuit by The Chips (Blues Brothers did a great cover of it on Briefcase Full Of Blues)

There is also a Purple People Eater movie (1988) where "a kid plays the old novelty song "Purple People Eater" and the creature actually appears". Neil Patrick Harris plays the "kid". Other "stars" include Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Ned Beatty, Shelley Winters, Little Richard, Chubbie Checker and Peggy Lipton (among others).

maybe Frozen Embryos is even sillier. (21st of July)
