by | 6th, November 2009

john-and-edward2YESTERDAY, Anorak began its campaign to have the X Factor twosome John & Edward Grimes, aka Jedward, record a novelty record and, with luck and a following wind, take it to No.1 in time for Christmas.

To give them a clue as to the levels expected to them, we deliver the Top Ten Novelty Records Of All Time.

Can John & Edward Grimes join this elite band of cheap and chirpy talents? Join hands in a Millennium Prayer that they do:

10. On Top of Spaghetti,  Tom Glazer & the Do Re Mi Children’s Choir.

Tapping into rich vein of laughing at foreingers. As performed on Noel Edmond’s Swap Shop – more from him later:

9. The Shamen: Ebeneeza Good

The Drugs policy ininitiave set to music, The Shamen told us that Es are good. Can Gerry Sadowitz work his magic for Jedward, or will he just murder them in their cells? Whichever way it goes, it would make great telly…

8. Barbara Windsor, Cheeky Sorta Bird

Busty Babs gives it what for. Not ’alf! See our Barbara Windsor pictorial tribute here.

7. St Winifreds School Choir – There’s No-One Quite Like Grandma.

More schmulzx than a New York deli. Grandma is not far away, she’s taken herself off to a home and plugged her ears with chewed Nuttalls Mintos. Do Not Recusitate:

6. Mr Blobby

Mr Blobby was played by John Grimes standing on Edward Grimes shoulders. They then married and became John & Edward: 

5. Tom Lehrer – Wernher von Braun

They don’t make ’em like this anymore.

4. The Chanukah Song, Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler can be funny. Really. He can be. It’s just the scripts and the lighting that make him look terrible:

3. Ray Stevens – The Streak


2. Star Trekkin The Firm

1. Shaddup You Face” by Joe Dolce
