Tons Of Music Jokes For All Music Lovers Out There
Ancient Greek mathematician and physicist Archimedes famously said: “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” While this is technically true, it is virtually impossible (probably for the best – let the world stay where it is). There is one thing though that can literally move the world, at least your personal one. And that thing is music. Have you ever noticed how the worst of days can suddenly become so much better once you listen to a good song? Music has a very specific power to make everything right, and we really should use that power more.
Having worked with musicians quite a bit, I can assure you that they do like a good music joke. And not only general band kid humor. Most bands have insider band jokes about that time they played that gig or that time they had to improvise because the guitar got unplugged in the middle of the performance.
You don’t have to be a professional musician to understand jokes about music, and that’s probably the best part. My favorite type of music jokes are song puns, where you can add a letter to the song’s name and turn it into something completely different and hilarious. You should definitely try it. Make a list of all your favorite songs and see how you can change them with one letter to make them sound funny.
What other types of music puns have you heard? Have you ever told a musician jokes about their profession? Or maybe you are a musician yourself? Enjoy this collection of music jokes, and tell me about your favorite one in the comments.
