I saw this song
In another thread here and found it utterly hilarious, even before I saw a parody of it.. (In the same post)

It made me wonder, what other songs that are clearly meant to be serious, come across as funny as hell...? Whether by themselves, or by the passage of time.

This always gives me a laugh:

And this too:
I guess any threatening, boastful, "I'm such a badass" song by nu-metal bands or boy bands really. I can't take them seriously.

Honorable mention goes to some local rapper (I forget his name) who had a song about what a hard thug he is and how he's going to kill anyone who fucks with him. Each verse was total edgelord shit that ended with:

Whatchu gonna do
When (name) comes to kill you?
*pause*
Not a fucking thing!
(Last line delivered in an extremely high falsetto)

Never failed to make me laugh my ass off. I'll have to see if I can find it.

At the 2:18 mark, he does a Bob Dylan impression, and it makes me snicker a little each time I go through it. I have a hard time laughing at much, but the entire album is very emotional, so I'm usually opened up enough to feel everything coming through by the time it gets to that track. This is, in my opinion, one of the best songs to come off of what stands as my all-time favorite album, because it's able to carry so many different feelings without losing balance or grace.

I know he's trying to make a deep point and whatnot here but every time he caps off the chorus with that little "If I'm alive, that is" I can't help but crack up. It sounds like he just remembered "Oh shit, can't follow through on my big dramatic chorus if I die!"

Oh yeah, also the strings and pianos and constant Am-Em acoustic progression combine to make the instrumental an absolute ham-and-cheese sandwich

A sob story of a starving Somalian woman gathering rice grains ("pearls") for her little daughter. Her life, the singer laments, "hurts like a new pair of shoes".

I suspect stardom, not to mention her gig as an international protester, has treated Kidjo a little bit too well.

And who could forget the OG unintentionally hilarious song?

I used work with an older guy who had been DJ in the late 1960s/early 1970s, when they actually had to spin vinyl over the air. It came up on some shuffle or something and he started laughing. When I asked why, it turns out this was their go-to song for poop breaks, since it was the longest song they were allowed to play. He said it felt weird to hear it without his pants around his ankles, feverishly trying to finish his business, since there were times when he was the only one in the station and he had to get back to cue up the next song.

He also said it probably got far more air play than it othewise would have due to this.

Can't hear this song without thinking of that story. :geek:

SOMEONE LEFT A CAKE OUT IN THE RAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIINNNNNNN!!!!!!!!

I can't really tell if its so bad its good or just plain bad. But that chorus is legendary. Really dig the Donna Summer cover in all of its bombast. ps, you only need to listen to the first few mins.

So I actually heard this song many years before I ever heard the one that obviously inspired it:
To this day, it's really hard for me to think of the "real" version without thinking of the Brak version.

Also,
This dude is taking himself so seriously... But the lyrics he's singing are just...
Mad respect though, because the Crash Test Dummies are the only people I've ever seen actually perform Weird Al's parody of their song with him on stage.

Because it's too long and it reminds me of Seinfeld.

One of my mom's friends is a folk singer, and so he makes most of his money playing at weddings or events and taking requests for tips. Apparently, a large portion of folk singer community, himself included, refuses to play this song because they are asked to play it so often and it's so long and so melodramatic.

This song is off one of my favorite albums, and it's far and away the worst song on said album:

It started off sad, then I realized it was just extremely repetitive misery porn. The funniest part came in the last verse. I jokingly predicted that the last kid would become a child prostitute.

Then I had to move away
Then he begin to smoke crack
Then he had to sell ass

Needless to say I lost my shit when I first heard it.
