Kazoo Madness!

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

The kazoo is an instrument that's easy to learn and easy to master. To create music with a kazoo, you simply put your mouth around one end and speak or sing through it.  This vibrates a membrane that's usually made of wax paper and poduces a distinctive buzzing sound.

The kazoo is played professionally in jug bands, comedy music and by amateurs everywhere, but for this playlist I wanted to include popular music that features the instrument. Some obvious choices are not included because they're not available on Yahoo Music Unlimited including, The Beatles "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!", and "Lovely Rita" as well as the MTV unplugged version of The Cure's "The Walk".

So even if you can't play an instrument and have no singing talent, you can pick up a $.50 kazoo and easily jam along with this playlist.
