Call it what you will but humorous music is all over the place. (And despite what some people think, Weird Al is not the only person to write parodies!).

From Tom Lehrer, Rolf Harris, Benny Hill and Art Carney to the more recent stylings of Jonathan Coulton, The Arrogant Worms, Richard Cheese and Mitch Benn there should be something in here for everyone.

And yes there should be some Weird Al.

Just try not to laugh too loud if you’re listening in at work.
