Great song (as stupid as it is). Any time I have a party I play that one and no matter how much they hate to admit it, everybody loves it!

Uh Oh! - The Nutty Squirrels

An early 60s rip-off of Dave Seville and the Chipmunks---really though, it was good--non-stop sophisticated jazzy scat singing at 78 rpms, lol. The man behind the squirrels was Don Elliot, sort of a middle-weight jazz trumpeter from back in the day. 8)

Dirty Water by Rock and Hyde

They had more hits .....in Canada anyway as "The Payolas" as 2 of 3 would know being from good ol' B.C.

Paul Hyde himself is a one hit wonder for his tune "America is Sexy"

and as we all know Bob Rock went on to produce albums like Dr. Feelgood for Motley Crue and St. Anger and The Black Album for Metallica

Ooooh! Has anyone here ever heard this one?

"Funk Dat" by Sagat:

Why is it that EVERYTIME I'm walkin' down da street
Somebody needs to stop me just to give me a flyer?
Come on, man! FUNK DAT!

Get outta my way!

Why is it that EVERYTIME I walk into da bank
Da tellers look at me like I'M the one who robbed them last week?
Come on, man! FUNK DAT!

What are you lookin' at?!

Why is it that EVERYTIME I turn on the radio
I hear the SAME 5 SONGS 15 times a day for 3 months?

Get a new DJ!

Why is it that BUMS ask me for money when I ain't got none?
What is it an IN thing or something? Lemme remind this dude he ain't got no money

Get a job!

You know, everytime I see my neighbor, she tells me to stay outta trouble
Da other one looks at me like I'M the one who got her daughter strung out
....Come on, man....FUNK DAT!

What are you lookin' at?

(sigh) Seems like everytime it never fails, it never fails
I'm just chillin' in my crib, mindin' my own business, and somebody wants to call me just to talk about nothin'.

Get a life!

Why is it that when I go out to a night club
Only da ugly chicks wanna step up to me?
I mean like I'm ugly or somethin', huh?
What do you mean, huh?

Get outta my face!
