For Sri H., "Steel Monkey" from Jethro Tull
And for Bling Bling, some tune-free, though leggy, Czech Hip Hop
This song makes me hate clapping, celebrating, people, and the world. Other than that, I'm not sure why it didn't win the Eurovision song contest for the Swiss.
One last one, then I'll stop picking the low hanging fruit of Eurovision songs -- the 2003 UK entry by Jemini.
Wait, they put the drummer in FRONT of the guitarists?

So, this is an all-time blues classic sung and played by a national treasure.
For doofaloofa, imagine if the Book of Kells were singing "Four Green Fields" or some cool **** like that (you can update / adjust the example to de-wankerize it as need be). I was going to try to fix it myself, but Ireland's top national treasure according to the first web page that came up is Colin Farrell and he doesn't even look like he smells OK, you know, so I left it. Also, Maeve Binchy was coming up a lot. I mean, fer feck's sake.
Meat Puppets, "Monkey and the Snake"
A great 'un.

Helen Kane, the voice of Betty Boop, does "Aba Daba Honeymoon."
A charming, whimsical, upbeat calypso number by the great Harry Belafonte, with casual but horrifying references near the end to primaticide and primatophagia.
