    @Bugz, I listened to your wip. This has a ways to come yet. I don't really feel that it fit the theme. It wasn't even slightly comedic, there wasn't a single thing funny about that song, and it doesn't sound like a soundtrack that would be played to something funny either. The drums rarely synched up with the rest of the song. The voice effect used is . . . annoying.

    It said that this was a remix. While using sampled material is allowed (such as the lyrics), perhaps it might be better to build your own song.

    I uploaded one of the beats I finished today. More will come soon enough. It's a 4 bar hip-hop beat with a minor fill at the end. I wouldn't use it more than twice in a song, if you want to score well

    I hope you all realize that the contest has NOT started yet. The actual contest may start at a later date depending when Pyritie approves of the contest so do NOTsubmit any WIP's yet.

    Silly Pyritie. Here is what I consider to be comedy music

    -Music that is funny to listen to
    -Music with funny lyrics
    -Music that could be the background for a comedy routine.

    I'm sure that it is a lot broader than that, but those are what I just thought of off of the top of my head

    Here is an a solely instrumental example, from Earthbound. I would consider this comedic

    Here is an example including lyrics, from Team America. I would also consider this comedy.

    I linked a lonely island video earlier. Almost everything they have done is comedy.

    Here's an autotuned example of comedy. This should show that there are tons of genres you can do for this contest

    I would consider just about every song by Weird Al Yankovic to be considered 'comedic', since they are pretty much all parodies.

    No of course not, unless of course someone manages to get the 'OK!' from the original owner of the song they are parodying. Apart from that it was only an idea/suggestion/thing.

    Here are some excellent examples of Comedy music:

    And Pyritie I need to ask you a question. If you're dismissing Comedy music because you don't know what it is, then why did you approve of Music Contest 3's theme "Schizophrenia" when there is even less music for that?
