Not many nommers, but I really love this thread. Laughter is the best medicine they reckon, and you guys and gals have given me some great chuckles since we started it. Keep it up! We'll go thru to sunday as usual, then Monday is a full moon so I might have to go OOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWTTTTTTTTTT for awhile.

P.S. I'm enjoying this thread too Mondo. I'm sure we can get to 20 - we just have to get the old grey matter working.

I don't usually play this one, but Johnny's nom gave me inspiration:

They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus Anymore - Kinky Friedman
The Portree Kid - The Corries
Throw the Jew Down the Well - Borat

Are you sure you're on the right thread 2old? Novelty songs? As a Four Tops fan, I rather take exception to that! If you were aiming for the sub-3 min thread, there's already a Four Tops song nommed there (Reach Out I'll Be There).

About as novel as it get's for me, Val, I'm afraid. The title sounds a bit 'ello 'ello! Was hoping to nominate Derek & Clive....but they don't sing songs....

I shan't press you for any further explanation 2old. However, I think anyone giving points to that nom, in this category, should be required to provide some clarification as to why.

Hi Liq. The original OP did say anything that makes you laugh (I believe) - there are plenty of songs that make me laugh with frustration as well as humour, maybe this is one of those to 2old?

Hello Al. I agree that certain songs can be rendered funny simply by their sheer naffness, even if the 'artist' that recorded them may not have seen it that way. Maybe the lyrics are completely trite or the vocal delivery is some way short of note perfect. There could be any number of justifications. However, for a nominator to categorise a song as novelty simply because they don't like it is stretching it a bit. The title of this particular nom contains the name of a character from a Perry & Croft sitcom and that somehow justifies its inclusion? Nah, not buying that at all I'm afraid.

An hour to go before we switch to voting. Any more nominations? I'll be back after the penultimate episode of Desperate Housewives!
