While we’re naturally drawn to things that sound pleasing, we get the most out of music that makes us feel a certain way.
We love music that makes us sad, music that makes us nostalgic, music that makes us joyful and music that makes us laugh.
That last one is perhaps the hardest for an artist to successfully accomplish. There’s nothing worse than a song that tries to be funny and just isn’t.
There won’t be any of those on Double J this week though, as we look at only the absolute most hilarious songs in the history of music.
Join Tom Ballard for The Funniest Songs in the World Ever J Files, from 8pm AEDT Thursday 30 March on Double J.
To coincide with this week's J Files, we asked five great Australian comedians what they thought was The Funniest Song in the World Ever.
