Well, besides "I've Come to Wive it Wealthily in Padua", there's "Where is the Life that Late I Led?" which is hysterical, too, if done correctly. "If I Were a Rich Man" is another, as well as "Pink Fish"---not sure where it's from, but I heard it's a great one about a foreigner who comes to America, and calls lox and a bagel "Pink Fish and a Stale Donut".

PURPOSE wouldn't be as funny solo, without the singing boxes. :)

i agree..purpose, out of context isn't funny at all. one of the few songs in the show that isn't..i mean real funny..comparison to Just One Step from SFANW, or something...

Jason Graae sings the Wrong Note Rag from WT on his CD...its hilarious. what a great album

Love "Pink Fish", it's an older Alan Menken song about... I believe....a Texas guy's first experience with lox in a jewish deli. Very funny =)

Also while in that same vein, the song "Need to Know" from Weird Romance has always cracked me up for some reason....

Check out "It's a Fish" from "The Apple Tree." I put it in a Broadway musical revue I directed a few years ago. Pretty much no one in the audience had previously heard of it, but everyone loved it! It's very funny.

thanks Dano and propspony, i'll definitely look into that!!
my showcase currently seems so heavy and dark, that i need to lighten it up.

i was also thinking maybe about "If You Hadn't But You Did" (Jule Styne), which is on Chenoweth's album, but I would sing it as if I were a girl like she does, it could get a nice response.

are you looking for FUNNY songs or just light happy ones? i would look at A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum CD.
Though scattered and divided we are still its heart...AIDA SEPTEMBER 5th, 2004...one more longing backward glance... I AM NOW "TGIF!"

I don't know how well-known this show is, or how easy it would be to get ahold of this music...but
"I've Got A Little List" from Hot Mikado
(mostly same lyrics/plot as Mikado, but updated and put to swing, blues, gospel music). This song's lyrics have been changed quite a lot from the original, I believe. I saw it awhile ago in DC and it was hilarious!

Pretty much looking for drop dead funny songs...There's nothing real for me in Forum that's funny. It's really rough trying to find a hilarious song!!

Try:
"Only With You" from Nine; big punchline at the end when you realize he's singing to several women

"When I'm not Near the Girl I Love" from Finian's Rainbow

"Sara Lee" by Kander & Ebb, it's in And the World Goes 'Round

"Quasimodo" from When pigs Fly: it's in Singer's MT Anthology, Tenor Vol. 3

"Thirteen Collar" by Jerome Kern, but good luck finding it

There are some funny songs from One Touch of Venus (Weill)
and anything from The Producers, which is in print

That's all I can think of for now. Good luck!

Oh yeah, also "Natasha" from Day in Hollywood, Night in the Ukraine, but only if you can do a good Groucho
"Knock knock" "Who's there?" "Control freak--now you say 'control freak who?'"
