Being funny when writing a song is really hard. Times and tastes change and sometimes a joke isn't funny the 30th time you have heard it.
My two favorite songwriters who are consistently funny are John Prine and the Fountains of Wayne team of Adam Schlesinger and Chris Collingwood.
Adam passed on pretty early on in 2020 from Covid, much like Prine. This recording was from a tribute done in 2021. There is a certain weight to the performance given the reason for the show but I love the way Buchannan belts this out. Great tune, great performance.
