Silly Songs: Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah

Allan Sherman: Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah


I actually am quite surprised that Allan Sherman's classic hasn't made an appearance yet this week. To me, this is the quintessential funny song. It's not often that a purely humorous song can make its way all the way up the charts to #2 and get a Grammy to boot.

This song was based off letters Sherman's son wrote to his parents while he was away at camp. It has since spawned Sherman's own sequel song as well as a game, a musical and a children's book.
