I remember two songs that cracked me up from the Dr. Demento days. ( I finally found videos)

 

"The Ballad of Irving" - Frank Gallop https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD8EtvWW8nw 

 

"I'd Rather have a Bottle in Front of Me (than a Frontal Labotomy)" - Randy Hanzlick M.D.

My Old School - Steely Dan

 

"Oleanders growing outside her door
Soon they're gonna be in bloom
Up in Annandale.
I can't stand her
Doing what she did before
Living like a gypsy queen
In a fairy tale."

Carrie Anne, Hollies

"Popsicle" - Jan & Dean.

 

Was originally by "The Todds". Jan & Dean put a little "surf vibe" into the song. But both are cute. Reminds you of chasing the ice cream cart/wagon/truck and saving popsicle sticks.

"Love Potion No. 9" - Originally by The Clovers - a lot of covers of this song but still my favorite is by The Searchers. I think they were the first to do a cover.
