    Everyone knows a song that when you play it, people laugh. Just something so crazy and unexpected that when you hit people with it, it cracks them up. Example... for me... The Doogie Howser Theme. Come on! You gotta love Doogie. What are some other crazy riffs out there that you guys know.

    The various songs from the ORIGINAL Super Mario Bros. game usually impress/crack people up.
  8. Pink Panther!
    Also, the theme to Beverly Hill's Cop. Well, that one gets more of a "What's that song, again? I know it..." than a good laugh, but it cracks my bandmates up every time I play it, for some reason. :)
  9. Seame Street should I say any more!:D
