Too Funky?

At least none of those guys look like they're being fellated while playing (SFW).

This is where art rock comes from, and should be discouraged.

Links two and three were too cheesy to stand. They made me feel a little ashamed to be a pianist.

You should always be ashamed to be a pianist. And proud, too. Comes with the territory.

Links one & two are the same, yeah?

Hey! Here's a Zac playing it on guitars! Two of 'em! Guitars I mean. Not two Zac's. Although, I'm a Zac! And he's a Zac! So there's two Zac's! And two guitars! Only he's playing both of them and I'm just typing.

That's funky isn't it? ...nope. Actually this guy's putting me to sleep. But he's a Zac! That's somethin'!

I think this song is slowly driving me mad! Sideways! I may be talking to myself in this thread. I may have to blow my brains out if I hear Fur Elise again! Too bad there's no gun within reach. Guess I'll just bang my head against the keyboard until all that's left is a bloody stump.

Lalalalala la la la la la Make it stop!!! It's bringing tears to my eyes! AARGGH!!

*runs around in circles screaming to the tune of Fur Elise and then crashes into a wall*

...mommy!

*thud*

This is where Days Inn Lounge piano bars come from, and should be nuked from orbit...

I dunno. That last guy was channeling Chick Corea (sorta), and that's always a good thing. He just needs a real Fender Rhodes instead of a dinky synthesizer.

*pours gasoline on YouTube and sets it on fire, plays Alfred Brendel then Fur Luise to decompress*

Fur guitar.

No, this is where art rock comes from, as well as where it ends.

And if you still think it's bad, you haven't listened to it enough yet.

I think I might have to pull the audio on delmoi's link and add it to my mp3 player. I liked that a whole lot.

I expected more flying fur.

"Funky" in the skunky, stinky sense: In Taiwan, the garbage trucks play Fur Elise to alert the citizens that it's time to haul out thier trash.

I already knew we were famous for funk.

I always thought it was a particularly strange kind of Skinnerian conditioning. Plus, I always missed the damn trucks by like two minutes.

Y'know... delmoi's link actually made me head to my piano, pull out my classical books & try playing. Which I haven't done in about a year. So that's pretty dang cool. It was fun.* :)

*Too bad I haven't gotten any better at the piano while not playing it, though.

Ya, delmoi's link was awesome!
Not funk, but awesome.

In fact, those guys just rock:
Sunday Afternoon Boogie Woogie
Barrelhouse Blues
Toccata and Fugue by Stuart Jones
