WACKY WEDNESDAY: Another Year of Wacky!
It's been two years since I started the Wacky Wednesday feature on this blog.
Wacky Wednesday, was created "to introduce you, the reader to strange, funny and/or confounding music -- the type of "unclaimed melodies" that the Firesign Theatre's Don G. O'Vani was talking about when he said, `if you were to go into a record store and ask for them they would think you were crazy!' "
We've seen a lot of wackiness since Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014. Last year about this time I did a Wacky Wednesday best-of. Guess what ... I'm doing it again.
Here's a sampling of wacky memories from the past year, including that time we heard some singing clowns
We had fun with Mash-ups
We heard songs by music greats as performed by the international stars who loved them. Here's a Beatles song by Bollywood titans Mohammad Rafi & Asha Bhosle
And here's a Hank Williams favorite by a Swedish group, The Long Gone Smiles
We payed tribute to The Marx Brothers
And Jimmy Durante
And Napoleon XIV
And we still had time for karaoke nightmares. Amanda, light of my life!
And whatever the Hell this is ....
Stay wacky, my friends. It may keep you from going crazy.
