I prefer the studio version but it's not available.

But "One arm Steve" has the best opening line of a song ever.

"Well one arm Steve yeah he threw me out the door"

"You have to do the Jimi Hendrix thang"! I don't really think Albert meant to laugh at Stevie while recording this. I think he was just blown away at how much he sounded like Jimi.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b49vcN0cGis - I think it was on Dr. Demento once, but Charles and the Count Basie Orchestra are both mainstream.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOZPBUu7Fro - Going by Wikipedia it's one of the top-selling singles in the world.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sKbvN--oH8 - I don't know that it's humorous, but Lauper occasionally had a silly funny quality.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACGUasFWVsI - Seems like it has a satirical quality anyway.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGASPnqc8fU - Originally by Glenn Miller.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_vuP...eature=related - Roger Miller is known for comical songs, but he also did a fair amount of mainstream country.
