    Extrabreit, Allegro für Annemarie, 1990, Metronome Germany, 877 6507

    Some violins and a nasty children's choir: 80ies' "Neue Deutsche Welle" goes Vivaldi. Or Mozart? Forget the lyrics! Hauptsache: macht Spass!

    Baby Grand, Ancient Medicine, 1978, Arista USA, AB 4200

    Funny cover art by Matthew Klein. Also humor is an ancient medicine. Eat fresh vegetables!
    Superb progrock by the later Hooters Hyman and Bazilian.

    Rupert Holmes, Escape, 1979, Infinity Records USA

    It was his own lovely lady. "I never knew that you like Pina Coladas....". Funny fairy tale! But also a great song, isn't it?

    Pat Metheny Group, First Circle, 1984, ECM Germany, ECM 1278

    A little bit crazy this one. Listen to the "Forward March" A1. They must have been totally drunk, as they recorded this one. When they returned fom the Hotel Bar, they couldn't find their own instruments anymore...? Never mind. Yes, humor also belongs in Jazz music...

    The Beatles, The End after the end

    The fittingly grandiose finish to their career: after 14 seconds of silence there's this cheeky "hidden track" (not listed on the original LP) after "The End" on album "Abbey Road". After Ringo's only drum solo of his recording era with the Beatles and three extended guitar solos by 1.) Paul 2.) George 3.) John, reflecting their personalities, we may listen to the Beatles' shortest song, Paul's definitive small grand finale:
    Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl,
    But she doesn't have a lot to say
    Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
    But she changes from day to day
    I want to tell her that I love her a lot
    But I gotta get a bellyful of wine
    Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
    Someday I'm going to make her mine, oh yeah,
    Someday I'm going to make her mine.
    Still crazy (The Queen and her husband) after all these years....
