Are These the 20 Dumbest Songs Ever Recorded?

A writer for a Minnesota newspaper called the “Morrison County Record” asked his readers to name the DUMBEST SONGS OF ALL TIME.

With their help, he came up with a list of the Top (or I guess BOTTOM) 40.

It turned out to be a pretty decent list.

Check out the first 20 from the list:

1.  “They’re Coming to Take Me Away”, Side B by Napoleon XIV  (1966)  (This was just the song played backwards.  It appeared on the B-side of the single.)

2.  “Louie, Louie” by the Kingsmen  (1963)

3.  “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)” by Ylvis  (2013)
