Peaches  
Without a doubt, "Peaches" by the Presidents of the United States of America is one of the weirdest songs I've ever heard.

Moving to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches
I'm Moving to the country, I'm gonna eat me a lot of peaches
I'm Moving to the country I'm gonna eat a lot of peaches
Moving to the country I'm gonna eat a lot of peaches

Peaches come from a can
They were put there by a man
In a factory downtown

And if I head my little way
I'd eat peaches everyday
Sun-soaked bulges in the shade

Moving to the country, I'm gonna eat a lot of peaches
Moving to the country, I'm gonna eat a lot of peaches
I'm Moving to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches
Moving to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches

I took a little nap where the roots all twist
Squished your rotten peach in my fist
And dreamed about you, woman
I poked my finger down inside
Make a little room for an ant to hide
Nature's candy in my hand or can or pie

Millions of peaches, peaches for me
Millions of peaches, peaches for free
Millions of peaches, peaches for me
Millions of peaches, peaches for free... Look out!

Millions of peaches peaches for me
Millions of peaches peaches for free
Millions of peaches peaches for me
Millions of peaches, peaches for free... Look out!


Don't ask me what my strange fascination with this song is. I don't want to know.

Re: Sorry, long comment
It's interesting to see two different songs where eating a lot of peaches in the country equates to a happy, peaceful life. I wonder if they're related, of if there is just some deep-seated feeling that peaches = peace in our consciences. (Though typing that out, I can see why, since "peach" and "peace" have four out of their five letters in common.)
