SP19-08 NOVELTY SONGS— THE LAST LAUGH

TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Tony Moon

When recorded music began selling in the ’20s and ’30s, novelty songs dominated the hit parade. This lasted for more than 40 years—then poof! They nearly disappeared from top 40 radio, but why? This course will give you some answers. We’ll take a humorous, nostalgic trip recalling those funny songs with video and recordings. We will relive the laughter created by some of the world’s most creative singers and songwriters, from Spike Jones and Ray Stevens to “Weird Al” Yankovic. You will smile, snicker, and have a great ol’ time! Join us…they just don’t write ’em like they used to. Silver Member: $90; Gold Member: $81.
