Monday is Labor Day, which means it's a good time to turn to the hardest-working man in the annoying-music business: Jim Nayder, a man with whom every conversation is a labor of love. In a recent interview with Weekend Edition Saturday host Scott Simon, Nayder — host of The Annoying Music Show! produced at Chicago Public Radio — describes a passel of tunes with which to wind down the summer.

"Shine on Harvest Moon," Singin' Sisters of Syracuse

"Juanita Banana," J.R. Corvington

"Oscar Mayer Anthem," Evolution Control Committee

"Beds Are Burning," Elakelaiset

"Something," Telly Savalas

"Having My Baby," Piranha Man From Pakistan (submitted by Buzz Kilman, Chicago)
