    Here's a quote from an interview by Andrew Denton with singer Chris Isaak, taken from Denton's interview show Enough Rope.

    Once again, the memory power of tdpri members amazes me. I hadn't though to "Tennessee Bird Walk in years!
    The 1960's were the golden age of novelty and "cut-in" records ( short segments of popular songs put together under the guise of an interview or newscast).
    Hey, does anybody remember a song that was a morbid parody of death-song "Last Kiss" by J.Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers?
    I think it was called "I Want my Baby Back". It was tasteless, sort of funny and banned from most stations.
    After the accident that end their date that evening, the singer observes "I looked up, and there was my baby,,, and over there was my baby... and over THERE was my baby!"

    I had a recording of Homer and Jethro performing "I'm my own Grandpa"!
    Homer and Jethro recorded some great parodies and their pure cornball humor
    obscured some great musicianship. But y'all already know that...

    could probably post several pages of Ray Stevens' classics. Here's one:


    and AFAIK (which is sometimes not so far), he passed the torch to Weird Al:

    Ray Steven' Ahab the Arab was one of my favorite records when I was a kid.
    Kinky Friedman covered the song many years later on his Lasso from El Paso album.

    I'm glad to see Stringbanger's posted a Spike Jones tune. Spike did a great job on Memories Are Made of This, with the dogs barking...
