Instruments: Bum Trumpet
Every generation has its masterpiece; Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, Beethoven's 9th Symphony, Rossini's "William Tell". This is such a piece. For nearly one minute, "Farting Around" will transport you to a new world. A world of unadulterated joy. A world of pure farts.

Instruments: Piano, Percussion, Xylophone, Bari Sax, Tuba, Trumpet, Car Horns
Feel: Action, Bouncy, Humorous
You never notice how effective a car horn is until you use it. I usually park my car near a sidewalk and alarm 7 year olds on their way to and from school. 7 year olds are your target market for this sort of thing. They jump like antelope! All the kids in my neighborhood are acclimatized, now. It isn't as much fun. You also never notice how effective a Picardy third is until you do it with car horns. You're welcome.

Hey there, swingers and swingees! Grab your berets and cigarettes for this trip to a hip Euro-Space-Age Lounge Music Adventure! Vous ne devriez pas amener un canard à combattre les Belges. Il est important d'avoir un mot de passe fort. Vous souvenez-vous de "Le Manège enchanté"? Parce que je ne me souviens pas de ça.

How can you tell if a piece of music is intended to be comedic? Pizzicato strings and a bass clarinet! This piece has it all! Pizzicato strings? Check! Bass clarinet? You bet! Throw in some staccato high winds and you got yourself a great comedic piece! Going out on a date and want to appear more entertaining? Bring a bass clarinet! Bass clarinet players I think also get discounts at T.G.I.Fridays; Double bonus!

Hey buddy, wanna buy a ferret? How about a trained ferret? Okay, I didn't really train her... she just has a predisposition to things. She stuffs squirrels into boxes, feeds them sugary treats and then empties the boxes though mailslots. Well, if you're not going to buy her, how about some nails... to keep your mailslot closed.
Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Drums, Organ
Feel: Driving, Humorous, Suspenseful
This piece started its life as a random challenge on a show I do on Twitch.tv called "The Wheels of Doom!". The 4 randomized elements that came together here were: Drum Machine, Strings, Xylophone, and Comedic. I think it worked out pretty well! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Instruments: Bass, Guitar, Diddley Bow, Clarinet, Trumpet, Vibraphone, Horns, Kit, Percussion
Feel: Bouncy, Humorous
Sort of inspired by the 1930s, and sort of inspired by all-out weird. Definitely recommend taking a listen to this piece. Make sure you get to the 1 minute mark... fun times trumpet playing await! I personally enjoy how the clarinet play tries to follow the trumpet player - doesn't work out so well. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Semi-random pizzicato is like magic for cheeky hijinks. You know... when Marty gots a plan, it aint usually a good one.
Instruments: Drums, Bass, Ukulele, Trumpet, Trombone
Feel: Humorous, Bright, Bouncy
You can download this in uncompressed format here! Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes. Fast paced, funny, and downright delightful! If you haven't heard this.... seriously take a listen. I'm a big fan of this piece. I get a lot of requests for things like "Yakity Sax", but there isn't really a way to do that without just ripping the piece off. Hopefully, this is enough fun!

Remember the old Casio and Yamaha "auto accompaniment" keyboards? This is a super-simple and freakishly-delightful terrible piece of music. The download comes with a faster version, AND a slower version which is delightfully logy! You can download this in uncompressed format here!
