Yes, there are some book-related comedic songs out there.  Not many, mind you, but there are a few and here’s a new one I just discovered.  It’s by an attractive female comedienne named Rachel Bloom and she has uploaded a great video of her, ahem, “love affair” with science fiction author Ray Bradbury, entitled “Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury.”  While I’ve never wanted to have carnal relations with Mr. Bradbury, I discovered his work when I was around 13 or so and loved all his stories and novels.  I read every one of his books that the Oceanfront Branch of the Virginia Beach Public Library had.  Other than ERB’s John Carter of Mars books, Bradbury’s work was probably the first science fiction I had ever read (though I read the other day that he, disingenuously IMO, only considers a single one of his works — Fahrenheit 451 — to be science fiction.)

This is, of course, not even remotely work-safe (my first post of this nature), so consider yourself warned and click on the link at your own peril!
