Two-fer Tuesday: Songs That Would Never Be Hits Today

DaGoddess @ 04:00

Let’s face it, there are some songs that would never be hits in this day and age. Then again, some weren’t even hits back when they were released. But having a hit isn’t always necessary to entertain your audience. Of course, it helps if they have some idea what you’re doing. Then again, since when did musical entertainment HAVE to make sense? Sometimes music wanders into “Who’s On First” territory and, guess what? We don’t care. We’re along for the lovely lilting ride.

Three of my favorite examples of this:

I’d thought maybe I’d include songs from Kay Kyser (with whom my grandfather used to play) and Spike Jones (a family favorite), but it turned out most of their songs all made sense! Go figure.

Also, I’d like to give a “happy birthday” to my big sis! She’s a pretty amazing lady.


  1. Bert Lahr. Wasn’t he the Lion from The Wizard Of Oz?
