30 days of music#25 – a song that makes you laugh

I have massive admiration for Hugh Laurie as a comedian and musician.  Most funny songs out there sacrifice musical quality to make jokes, but Hugh is able to write something hilarious, that also sounds great, has a fantastic rhyming pattern, and sings it with an arse-wateringly enviable voice.  As hs’colleague Stephen Fry agrees:

Hugh can sing splendidly, and play any musical instrument you throw at him, the son of a son of a son of a son of a son of a bitch.

Hugh Laurie’s comedy songs are well worth exploring; let this be your teaser.
