Songs that are meant to be funny, or on occasion, just really weird. These days 'novelty songs' refers to anything so weird or funny that it's not quite tasteful to enjoy it. Novelty songs get no respect. And, unfortunately, little radio play. (With the Barenaked Ladies being a possible exception).

Here's quickly compiled list of some novelty songs, listed by artist. It is by no means complete, and for the most part only includes songs that have been noded. Please /msg me for additions, or add a WU of your own.
