30 Strangest Songs of All Time

30 Strangest Songs of All Time. Sometimes songs are obviously strange from the get-go. Others seem cool at the time, but, looking back, are just plain odd. From bizarre subject matter to downright undecipherable lyrics, there has been no shortage of weirdness over the airwaves through the years. Now, don't get us wrong—just because a song is strange doesn't mean it's a bad song. We're not saying that all of these are stinkers (but some definitely are). That being said, there's no denying that there's something distinctly...odd about all these entries.

The psychedelic phase of the Beatles is well-remembered, but "I Am the Walrus" is the peak of their psychedelic acid rock phase. The nonsensical lyrics have been interpreted a number of different ways. They've been seen as either an homage to or jab at Bob Dylan. They've also been posited to be purposeful nonsense once Lennon found out his former teacher was having students analyze Beatles lyrics.

But it wasn't just the Beatles who came up with crazy song names. "Surfin' Bird" by the Trashmen? It only has three full sentences. "Muskrat Love" by Captain & Tennille? Yep, it's actually about muskrat love. And we're not even going to try and explain the strangeness of "Cotton-Eye Joe" by Swedish group Rednex. It's beyond explanation.

Here are 30 of those weird-but-memorable songs!
