I like Quuen but that is a funny song, sometimes I would hear my teacher mumble "I want my bike, my bicyle." And I would laugh. lol.

Oh, sorry, I don't know that Pink Floyd song, I thought you meant a Queen song. lol.

Does it really?! I'll have to download that then, that's brilliant.

As for me... I'm not sure what mine is. Bigmouth Strikes Again by the Smiths, maybe?

My strange/disturbing vote goes to Leonard Cohen's "Dress Rehearsal Rag"...which made me want to stick rusty coathangers in my eyes!

My strange/weird vote goes to Frank Zappa's "Ship Arriving Too Late to Save a Drowning Witch".

But then again, the terms 'strange/weird' and 'Frank Zappa' are really quite redundant.

Hmm...Bjork's "Oceania" (anything by Bjork, really) probably ranks up there.

Maybe one of MC Hawking's songs.

Sadly, I didn't *hear* the song, but my sister reports having heard "the weirdest, worst song ever" at a Ben Kweller concert, performed by "the worst opening band ever" called The Unicorns. She said their closing song was called "We're The Unicorns--and We're People Too."

I was thinking about this question and couldnt come up with a good answer, then I realized that what I was listening to at the moment pretty much fit this description.

I cant pick a song, but the 'In the Aeroplane Over the Sea' album by Neutral Milk Hotel contains some of the weirdest songs ever. On first listen, some are almost completely unlikable, containing some bizarre and off the wall lyrics and instrumentation. On further spins you start to realize all that's going on in the songs, or how simple they really are. I cannot explain why I even like this stuff to myself, I wouldnt think I'd like it in many ways.

I found this description of the album on allmusic.com, and I really agree with it:

"Perhaps best likened to a marching band on an acid trip, Neutral Milk Hotel's second album is another quixotic sonic parade; lo-fi yet lush, impenetrable yet wholly accessible, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is either the work of a genius or an utter crackpot, with the truth probably falling somewhere in between. ....In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is undoubtedly a major statement, but just what it's saying is anyone's guess."

Nick Cave's "The Carny" is a pretty bizarre bit of spoken-word story set to strange moody music, and featuring a disappeared carny and his dead horse. It's really quite mesmerising in a way.

"singing the blues" from tricky is what comes to my mind now.

i can't listen to pink floyd.

seriously. when i hear their music, i get overwhelmingly uncomfortable and shut it off as quickly as possible. i'm not kidding. i literally get scared. i don't know what it is, but it terrifies me.

i guess it's like, a pink phobia.

or something.
