Thread: Infectious Novelty Songs on YouTube

    Default Infectious Novelty Songs on YouTube

    Searching thousands of songs on YouTube, you come across song here or there that just grabs your attention when you hear them and stick in your mind. The songs may not have charted, they may be an original, a cover or a parody, but they are so infectious or catchy.

    Of course we are not searching for real artistic value, but that "x factor" in the song that makes it infectious and catchy like for example Rebecca Black now infamous "Friday"

    I had mentioned The Corrigan Brothers - "There's No One As Irish as Barack O'Bama"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HplZ_taHXLM

    This was when he was elected the first time.

    Now the Corrigan Brothers have released a 2012 version for the next presidential campaign asking that "Vote Irish, vote O'Bama" LOL

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQn4eVdXy_w

    They also take shot at Sarah Palin, the Tea Party and many others LOL

    I have even more versions of this infectious song:

    Here's Erin Own

    Kyle Andrews is a relatively new artist not well known

    But he id this song: "You Always Make Me Smile"

    The music video for the song was filmed in Utah during an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest water balloon fight and naturally it went viral in no time.

    When you're gloomy, just put this and you will become cheerful almost instantaneously provided you sing with it....

    The Piglets - Johnny Reggae

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lJDeYIh4No

    I love it as it has a basketball reference as well LOL

    Lyrics

    "What's he like, Mavis? He's a real tasty geezer!

    He's grown his hair a bit but it's smooth, not too long
    An' he wears a baseball shirt with a number 17 on
    He looks great in his big white basketball boots
    He's stupid over football an' he looks me in the eyes when he shoots

    Reggae, Reggae, Reggae
    Here comes Johnny Reggae
    Johnny Reggae, Reggae, lay on me

    Reggae, Reggae, Reggae
    Here comes Johnny Reggae
    Johnny Reggae, Reggae, lay on me

    He'll always start a fight for me, he's always on the phone
    At the dance hall in the evening he'll always take me home
    In his fringe and buckle stompers and his two-tone tonic strides
    He's a real tasty geezer an' I'm his here inside

    Reggae, Reggae, Reggae
    Here comes Johnny Reggae
    Johnny Reggae, Reggae, lay on me (4X)

    Johnny Reggae!

    Reggae, Reggae, Reggae
    Here comes Johnny Reggae
    Johnny Reggae, Reggae, lay on me) (2)

    Reggae, Reggae, Reggae
    Here comes Johnny Reggae"
