I recently stumbled across the YouTube version of "The Hitler Rap" by Mel Brooks. This brings back memories. I bought the single when it came out on vinyl in 1983. It was my first rap record (well, kinda, sorta...). One of the greatest, most surreal comedy performances ever. I learned all the words and performed them over and over until I knew them by heart. The great thing is the combination of perfect musical, video and choreographical expertise with such a ludicrous theme. Heil Mel !!!

Incidentally, I was 30 in 1983 and Mel Brooks was 57, last year I was 57 and I'm glad to say Mel Brooks is still with us.
