95 Songs of Summer, #53 - "Coconut" (1972)

To this day, I would make a case for Harry Nilsson's "Coconut" being one of the funniest hit songs of all time.  Funny, infectious, and a well-deserved hit that has remained so across the generations, in large part due to a terrific rendition on "The Muppet Show" that my kids watched dozens of times on a VHS tape that wore out long ago.

And with this weather we're having, a lime in a coconut  is sounding pretty good to me.

"Coconut," Harry Nilsson, from the summer of 1972.
