What is your favorite unintentionally funny song?

Asked by diavolobella (7925points) October 6th, 2010

This question is a spin off prompted by the question about bad bands.

Sometimes you just hear a song that is meant to be meaningful, deep, dramatic, romantic or touching and instead, it’s just hilarious. It might be because it’s overblown, has cheesy music or lyrics, the artist is pretentious or (my personal favorite) it features an artist performing in a language they are clearly not familiar with and the song is not translating at all as intended.

What is your favorite unintentionally hilarious song and why? Links, if possible, please.

My personal favorites are two songs by the metal band Accept. I find their song “Dogs on Leads” hilarious. It’s incredibly cheesy and the lyrics are absolutely ridiculous. I personally don’t find the concept of a dog on a lead to be that threatening and bad a**.

My all time winner is another Accept song: “Son of a B*tch”. The ludicrous lyrics. The concept. And they are serious!! It’s like Spinal Tap, only real. But most of all I adore the singer’s delivery, especially the line “Take this, Ughhhhhhhh!!!”

While My Guitar Gently Weeps by George Harrison with the all-time lamest song line ever: “I look at the floor, and I see it needs sweeping.”

@marinelife (alternate lines)

I look at the chickens and see they are peeping?
I look at the willows and see they are weeping?
I look at the ewes and I see they are sheeping?

HAHA

@ucme -I love Clint Eastwood and want him to sing “Havin’ My baby” while I am havin’ his baby.

@lucillelucillelucille…...& just where exactly does Mr. Shaw fit into these shenanigans? I mean, I know he’s been dead a while but necrophilia can be a hard habit to break :¬)

Bubbly by Colbie Calliat. I keep thinking she’s doing drugs with the whole “it starts in my toes, makes me crinkle my nose” nonsense.

Anything R Kelly. Love love love.
“Sex in the kitchen, over by the stove…put you on the counter, by the buttered rolls…”

I mean….come on. Poetry.

@SundayKittens. By the buttered rolls???? Seriously?? That’s a winner.

Limp Bizkit: It’s all terribly hilarious. You can almost hear Fred Durst trying to come up with a rhyme in the studio…
“Sometimes some things turn into dumb things…”
“I did it all for the nookie, so you can take your cookie…”

@diavolobella It only gets better. Youtube.

@lucillelucillelucille You beat me to it. But honestly, that song is too retch-worthy to be funny. It’s unintentionally horrifying.

I’ve got a soft spot for melodrama:
I’d Die for You
You Are My Destiny
Cross My Heart and Hope to Die

Some one that has braved H.I.M. or Panic at the Disco ought present some of their cheesier offerings.

@perg That man doesn’t appear to be breathing, let alone singing.

Wait, wait! Can’t forget William Shatner! He’s a song-stylist of the first order!

aprilsimnel's avatar

@SundayKittens – He got to “HIGH!”, and I was done.

I think any song in which Celine Dion sings “Lurrrrrve” qualifies.
