Overview

The Golden Age of Novelty Songs by Steven Otfinoski, Stve Otfinoski

This fond look at one of music's most enduring genres examines novelty songs in a definitive narrative that pays tribute to the men and women whose bizarre humor has given us a chuckle, a groan, and a barrel of laughs.

From zany hits of the 1950s to musical madness of today, the long, rich history of novelty songs is detailed in such chapters as "Flying Saucers and Singing Chipmunks, " "Soul Humor, " Parody, " "Monsters, Madmen, and Other One-Hit Weirdos, " "Country Fried Corn and Funny Folks, " and "Rock Laughs at Itself."
