My Pal Foot Foot!

The other day, I was musing on a song I'd heard once on Doctor Demento's show years ago. Advertised as a recording from 70,000BC by The Shaggs, the tune was My Pal Foot Foot. So I figured I'd see if this random bit of doggerel was available on the iTunes Music Store, which has quite a random collection, with many obvious things missing, but many oddballs present.

To my surprise, there were no fewer than three different versions of the Shaggs song, along with a cover version by another band (on a Shaggs tribute album whose existence boggles me).

There is truly some odd stuff out there.
