    This was mentioned before but I didn't see any link to the tune so here it is. The cheese factor is just fantastic in this one -- a Wipe Out knock off using bongos. Who'd have thought?!

    Paul McCartney - Tropic Island Hum

    It's the way that we bong on the bongo
    It's the way that be bang on the big base drum,
    It's the way we sing in the song book,
    Plays the tropic island hum
