  1. “gong duet”
    I keep wanting to pick out my favorite bits and then I keep finding more that are my new favorite bits. Although, “Only felons may kill the oafish audience members” and “Darnelle, did you have a burrito for lunch?” are current standouts.

      1. Um, doesn’t sound like it from the notes I see on the page. I think it would sound like more of a mess than that.

    1. Trying to keep a straight face while the singer shakes his ass She’s wondering if it’s natural or he learned to be that crass But if it’s got beat – and you can dance If it’s got beat – beat me But if it’s got beat – and you can dance If it’s got beat – beat me Into submission Standing on the dance floor like some tribal cinderella She ain’t looking for a woman, she [ Find more Lyrics at www.

  2. In 1 they did not tell us what type of mute we were using. Are we supposed to use a straight mute, cup mute, wow wow mute, bucket mute or a felt bag! It would change the whole feel of the piece depending which we use! How am I supposed to play my trumpet if I don’t know what they want.
    Also where is the cow bell? I think the penguins might have taken it.

  3. wow
    umm i am soo glad that i dont have to play that wow that whould be crazy but now that i see the music i really want to see it played

    1. It’s not even musically possible. You would have to find a way to put 4 half notes that don’t overlap into one 4/4 measure, and you’d need to find a way to play them in that bar, but back in the last system and also in the next one.

    1. Basically I just put the first two measures of this into finale… which wouldn’t do this justice at all (especially since I don’t know how to do instrumentation and scoring (That’s what you get for being a vocalist) but it sounds like something that five 4 year olds would play on a piano… Except that the music was written down..

  4. If arm falls off, reattach and play much slower.
    ok this is simply hilarious. Letter J makes my head spin. imagine actually playing that. crazy!

  6. actually, Ringo said he has blisters on his fingers. They played helter skelter I think 19 times before getting it the way they wanted, I believe.

  7. you what?
    re – coat all the pinatas with marmalade until most of the ox drivers have discovered the tube of antimatter wont fit into some barbie dolls

  8. you can (sort of) listen to this composition
    you can (sort of) listen to this composition: found a midi of “Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz.”
    http://10e.org/file/death.mid
    it was on a japanese-language blog, titled “2ch news flash vip blog.” the transcriber has ignored all text (including vaguely comprehensible tempo and volume notes, like “fffff”) and input only the notes themselves. nonetheless, a valiant effort — and yes, it sounds just the way you expect.
    here’s the blog’s address, in case you want to thank the author:

        66/66 (let’s see)
        4/4 (common time)
        8/8
        16/16
        32/32
        64/64
        err… count 1 2 3 4 and a bit.

    1. Re: you can (sort of) listen to this composition
      That MIDI actually doesn’t sound half bad! Sounds a lot better than you’d think from reading the music.

      it doesnt even sound that bad. I would just give it a better ending.

    1. Lol
      Recoat all of the pinatas with marmalade until most of the ox-drivers realise the tube of antimatter won’t fit into some barbie dolls. Wow.

  9. ……
    i really don’t wanna post a comment, BUT I WILL!!!
    ….wow….someone actually took their sweet, pathetic life, trying to figure this, shall i say it? *sarcastically* Amazing peice of music that could rival even Beethoven!! *gag* lol

  10. RELEASE THE PENGUINS!
    In section A, I’m wondering how you can play “with much passionfruit” and “through a frog” and “everyone rotate chairs” and “sleep for 2 bars” all at the same time. i love this

  11. In my opinion…
    I figure, to me, the funniest comment is where it says “May need shock therapy to finish”
