Piano Man Extraordinaire

.

Heckles walked out on the small stage, honked his nose, flapped his huge feet, and squirted water on the first two rows of onlookers with his flower lapel pin.  He strutted over to the large upright and graciously plopped his rear on the seat.  Cracking his knuckles, he brought his hands down hard on the keys.

During practice, the piano would bellow out high bells and whistles.  Today, his hands sank down into the board followed, slowly, by the rest of him.  To thunderous rounds of applause, his final thought was, “At last, I have finally put myself  into my music.”

Fun Time for Music

I love to listen to different types of music.  My favorites would include funny things done with music.  Since this is for the day after the Super Bowl, I will keep it short and simple.  For your listening pleasure, let me give you several different types of “funny” music / musicians.  Just a listening exercise that I guarantee will get you to laugh, at least, a little.

1) Igudesman & Joo: Nightmare Concert

.

I will survive

.

2) Lily Allen – Smile (language?)

.

3) Mozart  Group – Amadeus Jackson

.

4)  Right Said Fred – I’m Too Sexy (original – suggestive?)

.

5) Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain – Teen-age Dirtbag (Suggestive / Language)

You Don’t Bring Me Flowers

.

Finally, for the intellectuals, something not quite funny, but nice / different:

Ted Talks Presents: Jake Shimabukuro – “Bohemian Rhapsody” on the Ukelele! (followed by a very long commercial – feel free to skip)

.

Namaste,

Scott
