The Dumbest Questions Ever Asked in Song

Foxes actually make a kind of high-pitched bark/scream sound. You would've known that if you just searched the Internet for, like, ten seconds.

Music, as a largely subjective medium, lends itself to some thought-provoking questions: What is the best concert you have ever seen? Which is the better band: the Rolling Stones or the Beatles? Did the career of Styx really happen? Sometimes, though, the questions are asked in the songs themselves. Many of these are fine, well-worded queries ("Are you gonna go my way?" by Lenny Kravitz or "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" by the Shirelles, for example).

Of course, it's more fun to dwell on the stupid ones. If you have any questions you would like to add, do so in the comments section below. Note, these questions should not include "Where did this writer come from?" or "How soon can he go back there?"

The philosopher Voltaire instructs us to "Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers." I prefer the wit and wisdom of the great "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, who regularly barked at his wrestling foes, "Just when you think you have all the answers, I change the questions." It's too late to change the inane questions that have been asked below, but perhaps we can hope for more thought-provoking ones in the future.

Bryan Adams' "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?": "Tell me have you ever really, really, really ever loved a woman?"

Really? Absolutely. Really, really? I think so. Really, really, really? I think only one-time collaborator and tantric legend Sting can truly say that he has.

Rick Springfield's "Jesse's Girl": "Where can I find a woman like that?"

The better question here is where can Jesse find a better friend than the openly covetous, super-swarthy Springfield. It's one thing to steal a sly glance at your chum's lady when you can get away with it, but if you're lookin' in the mirror all the time, wondering what she don't see in you, you are either a horrible person, Simon Cowell or (in Cowell's case) both.

Black Eyed Peas' "My Humps": "What you gonna' do with all that junk? All that junk inside your trunk?"

Come on, will.I.am. Don't ask questions for which you already have the answer.

Chicago: "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?"

Peter Cetera & Co. have repeatedly proven to have genuine issues with time, as first they didn't know whether it was 25- or (20) 6 to 4, now they apparently don't have any idea what time it is at all. Chicago may not have been the Beatles, but the band certainly sold enough records to buy its members reliable timepieces.

If you think "What Does The Fox Say?" is a serious piece, the joke has flown right over your head...

FWIW, Kanye West didn't write the line "Can we get much higher" - it's a sample from the 1983 song "In High Places" by Mike Oldfield, with vocals by Jon Anderson from Yes.

The fox song is stupid. I still love the Killers, but that's one of my least favorite songs by them.

Best concert? It would be ELO the week after their friend John Lennon was killed. They came on stage in the old Checkerdome and proceeded to do covers of Lennons music. It was an incredible and sad concert. At the end the place was lit by lighters held high and silence! I will never forget that experience.

I can't stand that song! Most ridiculous song ever. Jeff - Lady Gaga sounds like Ace of Base. They were on the music scene first.

I dont mind it, yet. But, I still can't stand to listen to "I Saw the Sign" by Ace of Base. Although some of their music sounds like Lady Gaga!

So glad that the Killers "Are we human..." is on there. I'd always just thought it was "dancers" because that would make logical sense, but now that I've learned it's "dancer" i hate it even more.

what the dude below me said... how do you leave out who let the dogs out? and that coming from a guy who called the killers "an overwrought hot mess of a band?" all credibility lost.

Can you imagine how messed up preschool is going to be? I was going over animal sounds with my 3 year old, asking him what sounds different farm animals made, and I noticed that he was doing the sounds in the tune of this song, so I threw in, "what sound does the fox make?"..........you can only imagine his answer, "hati-hati-hati-ho"! Baahahahahaha!

-1 for the exclusion of "Who let the dogs out?". Did anyone ever figure out who to point the finger at for that one?

I know hate is a very strong word. But the more I hear that "song", the more the feeling of hate for it grows.

That does remind if something I've always wanted to know - what DOES the fox say?
