The novelty song is a form of popular music in which laughter or amusement is a primary aspect of its entertainment value in addition to any musical merit. Such songs often include, comical, nonsense, parody, satire, surprise, Innuendo, adult, and "gimmick" elements. Their meaning often rests on some pre-existing context or material extant in popular culture and require this to remain meaningful. Many novelty songs can become "one-hit-wonders" for otherwise little know artists.
