I LOLed as soon as I recognized Turkey In The Straw, and didn't stop loling for the rest of the piece. Really annoyed I've never heard this guy's work before.

I saw someone ask in the YouTube comments if @ 0:39 that's Monty Python. I remembered thinking that part sounded familiar, but couldn't place it. Listening again I'm not sure, it seems if that was the case then the rest after that first 7 (?) notes would've worked well over the conclusion (I don't know what you'd call the part is where he switches to doubling the actual Mozart). Anyway, the most fun I've had listening to a piece of music in a long time, thanks for posting.

Meh. Some of Schickele's P.D.Q stuff can be amusing, but the Nichtmusik falls flat. Anna Russell's takes on classical music - particularly on opera - are better. Dudley Moore's parody of Beethoven is hilarious. Nothing can beat Victor Borge's irreverent treatment of classical music.

Speaking of irreverence it is worth noting (teehee), that Wolfie himself was not averse to setting scatological lyrics to music.

Couldn't find an interesting PDQ piece on youtube that doesn't have a long spoken intro, so... "Nichtmusik" it was. Also, I'm pretty sure there's a PDQ tune involving a "pickle", but I can't find it & I can't find my CD.

Another irrepressible source for interpretations would be the shittyflute guy. My tear ducts & abdominal muscles hate that guy...

Bach - "Badinerie" from Orchestral Suite 2. -shittyfluted.



Tangential, but just as valuable... "Africa" by Toto -shittyfluted:

Speaking of "irrepressible" sources, whatever that means, can be unexpected. As I jumped back into my truck after a delivery one day just as some musical number had started, so I missed the introduction. It soon became obvious to me that someone was making fun of Chopin. I started laughing here and there and stayed in my truck after I had reached my next delivery point in the hope of the piece being back-announced. I had to find out who that joker was. The perpetrator turned out to be Frédéric Chopin. I had been listening to one of his scherzos.

Asks the bloke who posts at the rate of 3.45 a day. :mrgreen:

Yes. Sleeping hours tend to be irregular, though. I went to bed at 2:30 this morning and woke up at 6:15. Starting about a year ago I have begun to take one to three pappy-naps at odd intervals during the day. They typically last between one and two hours. Old age. It's a fucking tragedy.
