Music Jokes And Cartoons Adapted For Singapore

The news these days were unsettling. There's the passing away of news reader Duncan Watt; Riem de Wolff from pop duo the Blue Diamonds; Don Williams a country singer, and an election that never was. The great storms and floods in Texas and Florida upset many of us here in Singapore.

Most readers were a little groggy, so  I pulled this post out of the top-hat.
All in fun, no offence meant, for comic relief.
The Elvis Presley tribute artiste above, who Singhs well, was asked what his favorite song was.  He replied, "Amal Shook Up." 👳

Enjoying his meal, as he usually does, Jerry (Neu Faces) was asked if he was eating torsay. He replied, "No, it's Cha Cha Cha-party." 😝 (It's Torsay Jerry, not Charparti.)

"My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars at the second-hand shops for what I told her they cost." 🎸


What The Dukes' bassist, Zainal Abidin would advise his good friends, especially where local politics are concerned.🎸

When Jimi Hendrix was applying to work in Singapore in the 60's, he was interviewed by the management of a local music company.😕


"Here's a song about heartbreak, pain and lost love which I wrote when I was about to quit smoking. Now you know why I look so happy," says Michael Bangar (Silver Strings).


Changi Prison used to allow inmates to bring their own musical instruments for entertainment.🎵


Henry Chua (Quests) told his audience, "My neighbor knocked on my door at 3 this morning. 

Can you believe it? At 3 this morning! Luckily for him, I was still awake, playing the guitar and drums with John (Silver Strings)." 😤

Andy says:
Stay cool guys. I know, 6 years is a long time.

Hey Andy,

your post comes most timely to lift up my spirits. I was looking forward to voting for a new president but found that there is no election - sad. No matter, there is a wayang to watch tonight - part of the seventh-month festivities.
