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.

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.

Beck - Today has been a fucked up day

I see quite a few of you mentioned Bjork...and it has suddenly reminded me of the opening ceremony for the Olympics. Now THAT was scary! I didn't know whether to turn off the TV and run out the room screaming, or press the mute button.

Has anyone ever heard that Tenacious D song 'Tribute'? You know... 'Needless to say, the beast was stunned...' something something... 'He asked us "Be you angels?" and we said "Nay we are but men" Rock!'

One of the a cappella groups at my high school did it last spring, and I realized I hadn't heard it in years. I really like it though - strange though it may be.

Although, the Reliant K version of Veggie Tales' 'The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything' is... a little strange. But .
