My father had a collection of Spike Jones songs on 45s, and my siblings and I used to go into hysterics listening to them. I think Peter Schickele of PDQ Bach fame must have owned a set, too. grin12

#7 sounds like the guitar intro to Lonely this Christmas, either by Elvis or Mud, but I think those start with a backing vocal overlay... headscratch

Not that one, Lex sad

It comtains the immortal lines:
"You came home at quarter-past eleven,
Fell down underneath the Christmas tree"
