It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad Countdown

Last night the Doctor Demento Funny 25 once more treated us to another batch of silliness (Doctor Demento! Huzzah! Long may he reign!) and gave us our annual update to the madness that is the Top 100 (or so) Demented Hits (from Funny 25’s). This year, it was all about Ookla the Mok, and the band had the #1 song (Tantric Yoda) as well as #11 (Go To Bed) and #15 (Mr. Mxyzptlk/Bizarro World). Since there weren’t any additions to the countdown above it, that puts “Tantric Yoda” into the top 100 (or so) at the currently 17-way tie at number 95.

In fact, the only returning songs to the countdown were “Pencil Neck Geek” by ‘Classy’ Freddie Blassie and Shel Silverstein’s “The Smoke-Off”. Blassie’s wrasslin’ rant gained a few points but didn’t move up from its #7 spot. Meanwhile, the kick from being in this year’s top 20 pushed “The Smoke-Off” up from #15 to a tie with Travis Meyer’s “The Devil Went To Jamaica” at #12.

Here’s this year’s list from along with some fun links.

    I personally prefer Art Paul Schlosser’s “Your Pretty When Your Wet” over “Google”.
