Offbeat/Satiric music
« on: July 26, 2008, 07:26:52 pm »
I've just become a real fan of  satiric songs(the Uk's Ivor Biggun(eg:- "Graffiti Night Fever" , and especially the US's Weird Al Yankovic(eg:- "Don't Download This Song" etc.) I've never heard of them before. Anyone else a fan of Yankovic?

There's a new generation of that imo with "Tenacious D" and "Flight of the Conchords."

Bloodhound Gang isn't really satirical, but definitely offbeat, and their songs crack me up. They're pretty crude though, so if you don't like that, I wouldn't recommend them.

I remember Weird Al from way back in the 80's. I'll have to check out these new satirical artists!

Yes...affirmative... I love  "The flight of the Conchords" at the moment. 'I'm the Hiphophiphopapotamus my lyrics are bottomless!'
I really like 'Sellotape, the tape of love' 'Leggy blonde' 'Robots' there all great.
