"We tend to think of successful songs as the carefully crafted result of great artistic vision and hours of grueling, dedicated work. This isn't always the case, though.

After seeing Beck and one of the songs I don't really much care for on the list of 6 Classic Songs That Were Supposed to Be Jokes, I suddenly started to like him a little bit more. And The Beasty Boys, because I love me some satire.

I'm guilty of liking pretty much all of these. But to me, that's part of what can make satire so enjoyable- when it is simultaneously satirical and just really good.

All of those are great, I loved Loser when it first came out.

Don't Worry, Be Happy

Oh! Louie Louie I actually know about! The recording that we know and love was actually a cover. The band only had enough money for one recording of it, and didn't realize that they had recorded them practicing (or something like that). My husband tells the story a lot better than I do lol.
