WACKY WEDNESDAY: This One's For the Birds!



Here's a high-flying tune by Jay Wilbur & His Metropole Players from 1932



The great Mel Blanc had a big hit with his tribute to this feathered celebrity in 1948



The Holy Modal Rounders did this bird ode in Easy Rider



The Trashmen had a big one-hit wonder with "Surfin' Bird." That that actually was a medley of sorts of two R&B songs by The Rivingtons, "Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow" and this one, "The Bird's the Word"



Warning: DO NOT WATCH THIS WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF HALLUCINOGENIC DRUGS! (You might see gooney birds! But I love this lady's voice.)



If, for some strange reason you like these tunes, you might like my Duck Songs post from earlier this year.
