The Portsmouth Sinfonia fits into this thread, I think. Not a lot of stuff on Youtube, but this reading of In The Hall Of The Mountain King hits the spot. I always wondered if they were an influence on Maher Halal Hash Baz.

Bonus William Tell Overture

William Tell Overture also (sounds like every school concert ever).

The Buttholes fiddled with this Thai song about having an itch, but it's probably more funny in its original state.

I always smile when I hear the theme to Spike Milligan's 'Q' series, played on a seemingly out of tune piano!

What record is this? I can't track it down on Discogs.

I bought a couple of others of his but they weren't as much fun.

ah, Kuntz is a classic. I used to play when I would occasionally DJ way way back when and that was always the song that people would be asking what the hell was that about.

I don't know if it's funny in the traditional sense but the Nassiri birthday song fills me with sort of giddy joy, also makes a great free gift for a friend or loved one

Somebody mentioned Trey Parker and I'd have to echo that. His comedy songs are great. He gets the aesthetics perfect. Let's Fighting Love, for instance.

His impressions of other people singing are usually hilarious, too. My top 3 are his Bob Dylan, his Jimmy Durante and, definitely most of all, his Cher: https://youtu.be/1ptQatdjOFM

This never fails to make me laugh. It's funny enough to start with, but the way it builds to this manic finale of stupid noises is just incredible.

I'm sure I read somewhere (maybe on here) that they recorded this as a placeholder, intending to record it with a band, but decided to leave it like this.

What's that really condescending music playing in the background when Jimmy Tinker visits the Regional peasants in On The Hour?

The speed and every note being that naff keyboard effect (don't know what it's called) just gets me for some reason

Also any of the music in Borat, but especially the music that starts playing when it cuts to him struggling to play table tennis

Quite a lot of Yellow Magic Orchestra stuff probably falls into this category, La Femme Chinoise stands out for me https://youtu.be/pM12MfoIK7Y

i love this, thank you. now listening to their whole discography.

the first album has an electronic martin denny cover, how do i not know about this band already?

Colonel Bogey Sonata

ok some of it about moore mugging as a concert pianist but god the intense pedals that are basically spoofing Beethoven's Appassionata sonata, and the coda NEVER ENDS is pure musical hilarity

and here's the Beyond the Fringe version

This, which has turned up a few times over the years in SpongeBob, is just superb.

Vic & Bob re-align the planets:

They re-used this music for a bit where Bob honks an instrument made of plastic prawns which to my mind is funnier, but I can't find that one.

I love the completely dumb but also genuinely great synth work in Tim and Eric's Sports song.

This drifts into my head out of nowhere constantly
