Music that makes you laugh out loud
« on: December 29, 2018, 12:09:30 am »
i know we've had the lachrymose music thread, but I don't think we've done this.

I recently became aware of this remarkable piece by Bach. It has been set for the Associated Board Grade 7 exams, 2019-20. I have started to learn it - the Gigue from Partita no.1 in B flat.

I think he really was in piss-take mode here. It's wonderful!

Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Holst: The Planets (some of it); Orff: Carmina Burana; Tubular Bells.

"Waiter! I ordered the Carmina Burana"

"Sorry, Sir. That's Orff..."

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

Music from the 'classical' period doesn't - generally - lend itself to mirth. However this really is laugh out loud funny

Learning that piece is on my "to do" list.

Much of Shriekback's output over the years has made me smile.  It's a taste I acquired in the early/mid 80's and they still amuse me.  However, Pointless Rivers really did make me hoot with laughter.

The first time I heard this I was totally blown away with the sheer joy of it. I think it helps if you have played the original.

Live At The Portland Arms ~ The Soft Boys.  Uncle Bobby's lyrics are frequently hilarious - for eg "Uncorrected Personality Traits" - but this is on a different level altogether.
