About

Webster’s Dictionary defines “novelty” as “something new or unusual.” The novelty song is a unique form of musical expression and has produced some of the most fun, outrageous and fascinating singles in pop history. The heyday of the novelty song may have been the 50s, 60s and 70s, but each decade since has produced a handful of goofy tunes that seem to catch the public’s imagination. 25 All-Time Novelty Hits features three #1 hits as well as 14 songs that hit the top 10.
