This thread is dedicated to those weird songs some bands play. Of course, you have bands such as They Might Be Giants, Tom Waits, Frank Zappa, The Clash, and a few others that play a bunch of weird, wacky songs. (Please, no Weird Al sh*t).

Hell, even Pink Floyd has an oddity called "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave Grooving With a Pict." The Eagles even did a number with "The Greeks Don't Want No Freaks."

So bring it. Bring out your bizarre, fun, wicked songs. Let's hear 'em.

Can't go digging for video from work, but offhand...

"Hocus Pocus" by Focus (the yodeling song)
"I Wanna Polka" by the Ivan Offelcockich Orchestra
"88 Lines About 44 Women" by The Nails
"DOA" by Bloodrock
"Plexiglas Toilet" by Styx (a strange untitled track hidden on an early album)
"The Sheriff of Huddersfield" by Iron Maiden (a B side on an LP import single)
