oon after I turned 30, I found myself at a party where someone put on the B-52s’ “Rock Lobster.” It was the first time I’d heard the song in years, and as I listened to it, I was struck by how funny it was. Not just in a “ha-ha, this is silly” way, but in a “this is actually really clever and cleverly done” way.

I started thinking about other songs that are funny without being explicitly jokes. These are songs that use humor as a tool to enhance their musicality, or to make a larger point about society or human nature. They’re not parodies, and they’re not goofing around—they’re using laughter as a means of expression.

What follows is a playlist of such songs. They span genres and decades, but they all have one thing in common: they make you laugh while also making you think.

“I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor

This song has been a staple of karaoke bars and parties for years, with its message of strength and resilience in the face of adversity. But it also has a funny side, as evidenced by its inclusion in the “Weird Al” Yankovic parody “I Will Survive (Parody).” Gloria Gaynor’s original version is a party anthem that will get everyone on their feet, with or without the humor.

“I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred

This song is just plain funny. The lyrics are ridiculous and the delivery is perfect. It’s the kind of song that will get everyone dancing and laughing at the same time.

“I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly

This song is often cited as one of the most beautiful and inspirational songs of all time, with lyrics that touch on themes of hope and possibility. However, the song also has a very funny side, as it was featured in the hilarious movie ‘Step Brothers’ in a scene where Will Ferrell’s character is trying to learn to fly. As a result, the song has become something of an internet meme, with many people referencing the ‘Step Brothers’ scene whenever they hear it played.

“I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston

This song is often cited as one of the most popular love songs of all time, but it is actually a pretty funny song if you think about it. The lyrics are full of platitudes and cliches, and the delivery is just over the top. It’s hard to take Whitney Houston seriously when she’s singing this song, and that’s what makes it so funny.

“I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston

When it comes to getting the party started, there are few songs that can beat Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” The 1987 hit is infectiously upbeat and guaranteed to get even the most reluctant guests on their feet. And, best of all, it doesn’t rely on humor for its appeal. Whether you’re hosting a party for friends or family, this song is sure to get everyone in the mood to have a good time.

“I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys

This song is funny because it’s so earnest. The boys are just pouring their hearts out and they really, really mean it.

“I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas

This song is sure to get everyone moving, even if they don’t know all the lyrics. The Black Eyed Peas have a way of making catchy tunes that are impossible to resist, and “I Gotta Feeling” is no exception. Even if you’re not a fan of the group, you can’t help but tapping your foot along to this one.

“I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz

“I’m Yours” is a song by Jason Mraz. It was released as the first single from his third studio album We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.

The song peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Mraz’s highest-charting single to date. It also peaked at number one on the Adult Contemporary chart, becoming his first single to top that chart. The song became a hit in many countries around the world, reaching the top ten in Australia, Canada, Denmark, New Zealand, and Norway.

“I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston

This song is often mistakenly thought of as a romantic ballad, when in fact it is a thinly veiled message of stalking and obsession. The lyrics make it clear that the singer will never stop loving the subject of the song, even if they don’t love them back. This is not a healthy attitude to have in a relationship!
