The hit single, plus more atonal odes to madness varying the bedrock elements of minimal percussion and speeded-up chant/vocals. "Marching Off to Bedlam," "Let's Cuddle Up in My Security Blanket, " "Dr. Psyche, the Cut-Rate Head-Shrinker, " "I'm Happy They Took You Away, Ha-Haaa!" (the last credited to Josephine XV)—all are much more amusing to read as titles than to actually sit through. All of the material is available on the Rhino CD reissue The Second Coming.
Love it, but
i Love this song, it's been my Mom's, sister's, and my "official" song ever since we first heard it. i just wish iTunes had included the B-side, "!Aaah-Ah, Yawa Em Ekat ot Gnimoc Er'yeht", that would have been so awesome.
Reminds me of listening to Dr. Demento on Sunday nights years ago.
Bought this song in memory of my late husband. Just learned it was a childhood favorite of his! ;) I have never heard it before - LOL!!!
