Songs that make you laugh / smile

I want to put together a CD of songs for my commute (one hour each way). I want songs that are going to make me laugh or smile. So far I have:

* Don't Worry, Be Happy
* They're Coming to Take Me Away
* It's a Good Day (Perry Como version)

Help me fill the rest of the CD !

No sense retiring if you can't sleep at night worrying if you have enough "cushion" in your numbers.
20 Mondays to go - assuming I don't chicken out again !

Every time I listen to this live recording from Elvis I smile. He starts cracking up during the song and cannot stop laughing.

Is that the one by Napoleon XIV ? I first heard that on the Dr Demento radio show.

This one should cover a chunk of the commute...
