I can't imagine they were being very serious when they recorded "A Spanish Piece".

I think that humour belongs in music just as much as any other emotion. And just like any other emotion, it must be used judiciously.

As much as I respect Weird Al Yankovic (for instance,) I doubt that I could listen to his entire catalogue in one sitting as I could with PF (for another instance.)

You gotta vary up the emotional content or else it just gets old.
