Annoying Country Song.
Elmo Shropshire's "Grandma got Run Over By a Reindeer", a Christmas Country Nightmare.
Veterinary doctor Elmo Shropshire (yes, that's his real name) created this song back in 1979. He was heavily into bluegrass music and had formed a band. I believe he was hook on Jose Feliciano's "Feliz Navidad" and decided to create something more annoying.
Investing $40,000 of his own money, he created an album and video. Word has it he's currently involved in a class action lawsuit against Sony about royalties and ringtone sales.
More irritations... Don't mess with my Toot Toot In 1985 country music stations in Missouri started bombarding the airways with this song. Written by Rockin' Sydney and picked up by John Fogerty (singer, Credence Clearwater Revival) and others. It's goes like this...
Don't mess with my Toot-Toot
Don't you mess with my Toot-Toot
You can have the other woman
But don't mess with my Toot-Toot
She was born in her birth suit
The doctor slapped her behind (whack!)
He said "You're gonna be special"
My sweet little Toot-Toot
Why is this annoying? Well, if you got some co-worker singing this song constantly because he thinks the song is about cocaine (Toot-Toot), you might get annoyed, eventually. Or slap someone silly...
By the way, they made two versions of this song in Spanish. With men and women singing.
Sonora Dimamita, No Te Metas con Mi Cucu
Jesus Christ. I've listened to this song constantly for over two decades.
Rockin' Sydney, if you're looking down at me from that BIG Choir in the Sky, I've only got one favor to ask from you. If we meet in the GReat Beyond... Please, please, don't sing that song. 'Cuz if you do, I'll surely strangle your eternal soul.
