what's the strangest song you've ever heard?

Forgive me if this has been asked before (I can't use the search option, heh), but what's the most obscure song you've ever heard? For me, it would be "Three Little Pigs" by Green Jelly. It's extremely odd, but rather catchy.

hmm, I'm gonna say "What's The Ugliest Part Of Your Body?" by Frank Zappa, but I'm sure Zappa, Aphex Twin and TISM have done stuff stranger than that

Los Bastardos by Primus. It has a few Young Ones samples in it!

blood for blood (boston hardcore band) covering del shannon's "runaway"

that's the most recent strange thing i've heard, but i can't remember if it's the strangest ever.

Which reminds me, i heard a local band cover "Red Rubber Ball" by Simon and Garfunkel (and yes, that IS a S&G song! I know some other band did it too, but S&G wrote it!) Anyway, the band's sound is nothing like S&G, much more hard rock. Maybe punk. Hard for me to tell...

there's only one answer to this question. "stop ou encore" by plastic bertrand. i have no idea what is going on in that song... i play a game with my friends where i make them listen to it and tell me how long it is...usually they say 5 or 6 mins but it's just 3 mins of god awful noise. a close second is the original version of "head like a hole" by devo... very strange...

I don't know about the strangest song I've heard - probably something off of Bjork's latest album.

As far as possibly the strangest reaction I've had to a song - it was probably Ministry's "Psalm 69."

the cyrkle did the version everyone's familiar with.






uh...speaking of simon & garfunkel....me first and the gimme gimmes did 'i am a rock'...but that's what they do, so it's not really strange.

I love U2's Babyface but to me, that's still a weird awesome song. Along with great Lemon!

There are more, but I can't really think now of they are, but maybe Ben Lee's awesome "In the Morning." song.

Pink Floyd's "Bike" left me staring at the cd player when I first heard it
