Beaker from the Muppets sings a wacky and wild version of Beethoven’s Ode To Joy in this video.
I got a good laugh out of this one. It’s that crazy scientist Beaker from the Muppet Show singing Beethoven’s Ode To Joy. That Beaker can really lay out some serious music! Of course things get quickly out of hand like they always seem to do when you turn Beaker loose. All I can say is go Beaker go!!
A funny video spoof of the Queen song Bohemian Rhapsody as performed by Hayseed Dixie.
Hayseed Dixie is always good for a laugh with their bluegrass renditions of popular rock songs. The reason they’re making the Live Musician Central Sunday Funnies is because their video for the cover of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is truly hilarious. If you’ve ever seen the Queen video for Bohemian Rhapsody then you’ll get a kick out of all the great imagery in the Hayseed Dixie cover version. I hope you enjoy this week’s Sunday Funnies!
Steve Martin performs his original song King Tut on Saturday Night Live.
For today’s Sunday Funnies I’m posting up a classic Saturday Night Live clip of Steve Martin singing his song King Tut. This is one of the great musical comedy moments on SNL and it’s still pretty funny even today. I remember back in High School, my live band learned this song and dressed up in toga’s to perform this song at an assembly. It got a great reaction and even made it into the yearbook. I hope you enjoy revisiting Steve Martin performing King Tut!
Betty White doing a skit on Saturday Night Live poking fun at Lawrence Welk.
I got some great laughs watching the incomperable Betty White on Saturday Night Live recently. Here’s the hilarious clip of the shows opening sketch. It’s a spoof of good old Lawrence Welk with Betty’s four daughters doing a Mother’s Day tribute. Enjoy! 😮
A funny song with somewhat misleading although pretty much non-explicit lyrics.
I got me a good laugh out of this one. This is fair warning, if you’re easily offended you may not want to listen to this song! The lyrics lead you to make assumptions that may not be the most family oriented. So, that being said, the lyrics are mostly non-explicit except for one beeped out word at the end.
Ladybug Picnic is a classic Sesame Street counting song with an extremely catchy tune.
Okay, growing up we didn’t have a whole lot of TV channels so the choices in kids shows were fairly limited. One staple of our growing up years was Sesame Street. It’s been fascinating over the years hearing how the music we listened to on Sesame Street has influenced our songwriting. My band Shufflin’ Noah has been known to bust off a Sesame Street style original or even a cover song over the years.
It doesn’t matter how good you smell if you look like a dork.
For today’s Sunday Funnies I’m posting up a pretty funny ad for Specsavers. It’s relevant to performing musicians because let’s face it, you have to look cool when you’re up onstage. There’s nothing that can overcome a dorky look, so be careful how you dress! Continue reading “Sunday Funnies – Bikini Girls And Spectacles”
John C. Reilly and Jenna Fischer singing “Let’s Duet” from the movie Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story
There’s some pretty good music parody movies out there. One of the more irreverent ones is Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story starring John C. Reilly. There are a lot of funny scenes in that movie and today I’m posting up a clip of Dewey Cox singing a song with Darlene Madison (played by Jenna Fischer). The song is called “Let’s Duet” and it has some very hilarious lyrics in it. Continue reading “Sunday Funnies – ‘Let’s Duet’ from the movie Walk Hard”
