I hate the saxophone

Music news, rumors, what you're listening to, how you're listening to it and whether it's all on the up-and-up.

I hate the saxophone

Postby john_titor » Sun Feb 08, 2009 2:57 pm

If I could travel back in time, I would first buy some pointy, pointy boots. Then figure out the first guy that thought of inventing the saxophone. Then travel back in time to when his father was first amorous, and kick that guy in the nuts.

While I am at it, what is the deal(TM) with old people and their ring-tones?

Sorry, I should be outside.

Hating the saxophone is like hating love.

Alto and soprano, especially soprano, I can understand.

Clearly you have never had a saxy night in your entire life. One of those will change all sorts of shit.

Sax on the beach works the same way, as does really just about any sax in public places. Trust me.

What about the saxophone parts on Dark Side of the Moon? Totally kick-ass.

Old people and ring-tones? What you talkin' about Wilson?
Do they have a Jitterbug ringtone? "Jitterbug, duh duh dut dah dah..."

Sax players make really weird faces when they play. Saxii usually sound like an intestinal disorder in progress. Especially when they do that thing where they make it squawk. Like beating a sack full of geese with a three iron and the geese have those little New Year's Eve horns in their mouths. It was the bad-ass instrument of the 50's You could get chicks with a sax. Richie Cunningham played the sax, need I say more? Which leads us to the next part:

Next time you hear a whip-a-midi ring-tone that makes you say Hmmm.. do not be surprised to see it snatched from an oldster's holster. If the ring-tone is truly the doorway to the psyche, I fear for our retirement villages. And it is not Al Jolson stuff either. You will see.

I do like those big harmonicas, as heard on the Green Acres theme song.

I did not go outside today.

Sax hate rightfully has its very specific time and place.

If you live above Goodman's Jewelers, you can rightfully hate Joanne's sax. How many free-form jazz explorations of the "Pink Panther Theme" can one tolerate, especially below your bedroom window at 1 AM night after night in warm weather?

On the other hand, where would the Clash's "Wrong'em Boyo" be without it?

Richie Cunningham was the reed-syncing shit on Happy Days...how do you think he scored Mary Beth and went to Inspiration Point so much?

I can't understand you, when you talk with Chet Baker's willy-wolly-ding-dang in your mouth.

If you want to argue it was a huge penis, why didn't you just say so? And when did you see it?

Hey, Joanne's good. Save your sax hate for bad sax players. There's one living in the apartment building opposite my back yard. He sounds like a Canada Goose with bird flu. His intonation sucks, his phrasing sucks, his tone is strangled (but still loud). That's bad sax.
