NOVELTY SONGS

      

And after I promised every one that I wouldn't start a novelty music page! I think it was the History of the Bonzos CD that did it. Man, they were funny! But it's not all about being funny. Novelty, as I understand it, is about being different, wacky, frivolous, or in the words of Blotto - akimbo.  Or willing to experiment, bend the rules and take some chances -- just like I'm doing by starting this page! You tell me: why isn't Dr. Demento on the radio anymore?

And, now, the songs -- as advertised on TV!
