Hey man, don't diss the melodica. I still have the one my Dad bought me in 1971 (all the while grumbling about how much it cost), which I still haul out and play pretty regularly at live shows. Anyone else a big melodica fan? I find it suits me well because I'm so full of hot air...

Nope, didn't make me laugh -- I was too impressed by the musicianship. It's the first time I have seen that level of artistry on that instrument. My reaction to the funny parts was "Get out of he way, you're interrupting the music!"

Love the melodica,and love those two guys. Have you seen "The Rite of Spring"? One of the best examples of musical humour ever!

It’s a cute schtick. Costume changes. Give the proletariat a good reason to laugh at music they think is already ridiculous. Same as it ever was.

Here’s my update on an old musical joke:

“What do you call a musician without a good schtick?”

“A software engineer.”

Don Fagen is probably the only person in the world who looks cool playing melodica.
