30 Day Music Challenge - Days 25 & 26

I'm starting to wonder whether I'm going to be able to finish the month on time.  I'm making it my goal to actually post the Day 30 response on May 30th.  Although, there are 31 days in May, so I guess I'd still be within the month if I posted it a day late . . .

Day 25 - A song that makes you laugh: TOAST! by Heywood Banks.  This is hilarious.  I can almost guarantee that no one has ever heard of it, but you should all look it up in iTunes, and at least listen to the 30 second snippit.  It's hilarious.  There is a story behind my love for it.  I play indoor volleyball in the winter in a league that is about 40 minutes from home.  I carpool with my friend M, who has an iPhone.  Somehow, we started playing "the iPhone game" on the way to and from volleyball, wherein the driver picks a random word, the passenger looks it up in iTunes and we enjoy the 30 second snippits of whatever comes up.  It's more fun than you might imagine.  One night the word was "toast," and this song came up.  M downloaded it immediately.  Unfortunately, the rest of Heywood Banks' songs are not nearly this entertaining.

Day 26 - A song that you can play on an instrument:  Does used to be able to play count?  Yikes, I don't play any instruments anymore.  I'm trying to learn When the Saints Go Marching In on piano (keyboard, actually) right now.  I think I can still play Heart and Soul on piano, too.  At one time I could play the Cheers! theme song on clarinet.  Eesh - for someone who loves music so much, you'd hope I had a little more talent, huh?  Nope, not at all.
