A Global Army of Veteran Rockers
I am reminded to my junior high days when we all laughed our selves silly over Cheech and Chong bits..without having the foggiest notion what they were talking about...
Dave's not here...
Cheech and Chongs version of Low Rider is pretty cool as well. Funnily enough I thought it was theirs for a long time until I discovered War.
I just bought the 45 for "Earache My Eye"! Great childhood memories
Being a Catholic girl, we also chortled over Sister Mary Elephant...
Doctor Hook definitely were not eveyones cup of tea. They usualy had a fair share of humor in their songs though.
This National Lampoon track is hilarious...unless you feel Lennon is beyond parodying. The vocalist is Tony Hendra, who played the manage in This is Spinal Tap's manager. The lyrics are supposedly all lifted directly from Lennon Remembers:
How could I forget this one...even comes with actual film of the session. The immor(t)al "I'd Rather Be Dead" by the late, great Harry Nilsson:
That is definitely twisted...I was unenlightened to the song, and having a chorus of "old people" singing "I'd rather be dead than wet my bed..." Fine, fine, fine.
Can this really be the first Kinks tune on this fine discussion?
Could not find a video to post but this is a pretty funny little song by a good old folkie, John Gorka
Hank Senior Moment John Gorka
Your heart is broke Your liver too Your stomach's turned It's back on you
Lonesome and gray You cannot say Where all the dough went
You're having a Hank Senior Moment
So pass that jar Or your guitar And I will play The fading star
Oh, please don't ask About my past Or how the show went
I'm having a Hank Senior Moment
The jesus of cool looks a bit like a made for tv grandpa..when and how could this have happened?
Does not rock preserve us from getting old?
Even though Mr. Lowe as gotten Gray, he left a few hundred chuckle worthy songs in his wake..
