1-11-15 replacing superdog with reflections
1/1/16 replacing just a sad little tune with super dog
10-7-15 replacing "journey of the paratarsotomus macropalpis" with "just a sad little tune". I know it doesn't make sense this sad song being posted at a group called 'laugh silly', but is a strange way it is kind of funny and of course, the only way to really know what is silly and funny is by what is really sad and serious and ...so enough of philosophical mumbo jumbo, it is posted here because I felt like it and that is all there is to it.
8-21-15 replaced my spike jones take-off with the journey of the paratarsotomus macropalpis for the fastest piece contest.
8-12-15 ok, I have had enough with the worst orchestra piece and am catching too much flack from the other chinadolls not to mention (even though I am mentioning right now) possibly irritating the soundfonts so that they go back on strike. so am substituting a better horrible piece, the spike jones like take-off on "A Time to Say Goodbye"
8-10-15 here is my 'worst orchestra piece' for the contest started by LucasHMusic.
6-25-15 replacing "The toad and the Princess" with "one hundred notes to play" for the contest.
6-18-15 at the kind request of a Laugh Silly member, the song entitled "The Toad and the Princess" (also named quadrapuncus & Bananerina") has been reposted. This is the shortened version of about 35 minutes in length. The longer version is a little over an hour long.
6-9-15 Name That Tune Contest replaces "Plight of the Refugees", the number of comments was just too overwhelming and causing my system to crash repeatedly
5-22-15 replacing DYDD (you have suffered enough) with the Plight of the Refugees
5-8-15 Today, for a limited time only, Back by Popular Demand, "The Downy Yellow Dingle Dork." Yes, the famous song that started it all so long ago. The song that has become the rallying cry, even, some would say, the anthem for the Secret DYDD Search Society (well, I guess it isn't a secret now). So download it now because soon it will be gone again, disappearing (in shame, embarrassment, and humiliation to music lovers everywhere) into the ancient DYDD archives, but living on in the hearts of all who listen and search for the missing DYDD.
Since it is Mad March, I plan on posting a new and different (but not necessarily better) tune each week (and none of them is a march actually). The first is "where are you bobby d." What is planned next is "how to paint a pretty picture", "we apologize", and the "famous one note joke symphony." The smorgasborge will likely return in April, or not.
Jan 14, 2015 This piece replaces the Turkey piece. It is an entry for Shewbacca's contest.It is meant to pretend to be about Victor Borge giving a concert in Texas. A number of classical melodies are in the piece. For humorous effect (hopefully), there is a Texas tune stuck in his head so the classical melodies tend to morph into this "Yellow Rose of Texas" song. Also, a bit of other Texas style tunes are in there. Try to guess the names and composers of the classical tunes. I will post the answers in about a month.

Replaced Ding Dong Thong (it has suffered enough) with Turkey's Revenge since we in the states are so close to the national holiday of gluttony called Thanksgiving. Hope you enjoy it and give me suggestions for improvement. This was written using the Generaluser GS musescore v1.522.sf2 so it will sound a little different here with the TimGM6mb.sf2 but that can't be helped. Maybe it sounds better, who knows.
Here is a silly poem that may go with the composition"
One November while I walked
Deep within the wood
I heard a gobble gobble sound
And so I quietly stood
There I saw it in my path
Large and grey and angry
this feathered beast clucked a warning
its angry eye on me
its needle talons raked the gravel
its sharp beak snapped like a chopping blade
even its feathers were like quills
I was never more afraid
this could have been the fearless bird
of the proud American nation
but what have I done to offend this bird
I thought in utter frustration
suddenly it flew at me
I barely dodged away blind
Feathers filling all the air around me
I raced with it snapping behind
I leaped in my tent and it cawed in fury
beating its wings upon
the walls of my safe haven where I
Now an a confirmed vegetarian

The DDT treatments worked. We are back to the famous DDT. Hooray
April 30, 2014 newly revised version, since we are too cheap to pay for posting more than 5 compositions, then the alternative is to append new compositions onto the 5 already here. who cares?
Enter this in the contest. This starts as an original composition, composed around Christmas time, maybe sounding a little serious. The repeating notes suggest a 'bell' tolling to me, hence 'ding dong'. 'thong' is just a lisped version of 'song.' just for the humor of it, providing you see the humor in it. Ok, I know it is not funny to make fun of people who lisp but some of our greatest composers have had this problem, just think of Franz Lisp. Ok, not funny. Anyway, the piece then goes to another Christmas song although this is actually an after Christmas song. It occurred to me that we have more than enough, way too many actually, Christmas songs but no (I repeat NO) after Christmas songs. This is totally unexplored territory, a potential gold mind for music writers. Just think of the possibilities. In this case, the song is "365 Days 'til Christmas" sort of a modified, "It's beginning to look alot like...." You get the idea. We then close with a rousing and fun Bossa nova rendition of "O Sole Mio" entitled 'O Sole Brother Mio', kind of a tribute to Pavarotti. (Tribute or unintended insult, whichever way you want to see it).
