I chose some thing purposely bland for the name of this show but it still doesn't seem right. Suggestions for something equally boring are always welcome.
Here's the pertinent information if you need it:
PAT BOONE- Wish You Were Here, Buddy (1966)
GANIMIAN & HIS ORIENTALS- Come With Me To the Casbah (1959)
ROY SMECK- Twelfth Street Rag
from Russian Rhapsody, 1944
TOM LEHRER- Smut (1964)
One of many topical songs Lehrer wrote for the American version of That Was The Week That Was
LIL JOHNSON- If You Don't Give Me What I Want
THE GOOFERS- Wow
from Bop Girl Goes Calypso, 1957
Too bad you can't see the visual. It's pretty insane. One of them plays the trombone while swinging on a trapeze. It used to be on You-Tube. You may say “so what” but I bet you couldn't do that.
from The Surfsiders Sing The Beach Boys Songbook, 1965
STAN FREBERG- The Great Pretender (1956)
”If nailed down to pick my favorite of the twelve [on this album], I would probably pick The Great Pretender because in addition to coming out fairly funny it lampoons a musical trend that I personally loathe. In all my records I have conscientiously tried to separate not as a record artist but as a satirist. There's a difference between pointless ridicule and earnest satire. A satirist is a critic who seeks to improve society by pointing out its affectations and absurdities through use of humor.”
One of many parodies by him (as well as Spike Jones, Mickey Katz, and others) I heard before ever hearing the real songs.

DRIMBLE WEDGE & THE VEGETATIONS- Bedazzled

NERVOUS NORVUS- Dig (1956)
Years ago I had this on a mixtape of beatnik songs I lent to a friend who while listening to it on acid decided I was sending him secret messages through this song. Mr. Whipple
