Caitlin Comments: There’s never a good time for a xylophone solo.
Published 1996

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.45 out of 10)

    Well the music is your special friend
    Dance on fire as it intends
    Music is your only friend
    The End

    Wot no Prog Rock tag ? I’m pretty sure this is a Brian Pern Album .

  3. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Inu Yasha: ‘Right, all you peasants, into the fire with the lot of you. Form one line, please, one orderly line, we need to immolate everyone, but we can’t do it all at once. Not without your co-operation.’

  4. THX 1138 Says:

    This – THIS – is what happens when you get your glockenspiel and xylophone identification mixed up.

  5. DaveM Says:

    “Tonight on Behind the Myth, the shocking truth of the pied piper of Hamelin”

  6. Tom Noir Says:

    “Okay, so imagine that your house is on fire and you can only grab one item as you rush out the door. What would it be?”

    “Wait. Do you mean besides the xylophone?”

  7. Tat Wood Says:

    Pat Sharp and Neil Morrissey form a Mumford and Sons tribute band. Audience reception is unfavourable.

  8. JuanPaul Says:

    Imagine that at some point, a young awkward girl who plays the xylophone saw this cover and gasped.

  9. Anna T. Says:

    “Hmm . . . hmm hmmm . . . just practicing my xylophone while the rest of the village attends a witch burning . . . hmm hmmm hmm . . .”

    Monty Python should’ve covered this.

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AnnaT: how do you know she is a witch?

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “My Fanny’s Demon” is more like it, as the witch clearly has a (fire) bug up her arse.

  12. Tat Wood Says:

    @B.Chiclitz: this being a British-run site, that’s not where the bug would be.

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    We didn’t start the fire
    It’s been always burnin’
    Since Myfanwy’s Demon
    We didn’t start the fire
    No we still don”t feel it
    We just glockenspiel it

    “This one time, at Band Camp….”

  15. Elvraie Says:

    Exorcism by fire and xylophone! That’s a thought!

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    You get a car! And you get a car!

  17. Tat Wood Says:

    It’s Myfanwy and I’ll fry if I want to

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tat Wood—I’ve always liked the xylophone part in that tune.

  19. Tat Wood Says:

    @B.Chiclitz: Dave Stewart and Barbara Gaskin mixed it fairly well down but it’s there if you listen closely.

  20. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tat Wood—I was thinking of the Lesley Gore version (1964). Mixed way up there.

  21. Bibliomancer Says:

    This cover is giving me some bad vibes.

  22. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @B’Mancer— 😉

  23. SI Says:

    “Meryl! What have I told you about playing that thing in a 6/66 time signature!”

  24. JuanPaul Says:

    yo SALEM!!! Are you ready to ROCK?!!

  25. Anna T. Says:

    @DSWBT: It’s a medieval-looking village, with a great big bonfire in the square, and the people present don’t look especially joyous. Also, check out that person with the crazy white hair who’s pointing.

    Of COURSE it’s a bloody witch burning!

  26. Ray P Says:

    What happens when you play the xylophone backwards.

  27. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AnnaT: Ah, but can you not also burn bridges?

  28. A.R.Yngve Says:

    When Myfanwy got the job as High School Public Address announcer, he was beside himself with joy:
    “Good morning, Greendale! Today’s announcements: The Dean kindly asks all students to refrain from starting Wiccan bonfires on campus grounds, the Fire Department has filed a complaint…”

  29. HappyBookworm Says:

    Guesses, anyone, on what the xylophone player is looking at that’s more exciting than a demon witch burning?

    Or maybe he was just told, “never take your eyes off the conductor during a performance. No. Matter. What.”

  30. Tom Noir Says:

    Remember, you can’t spell “xylophone” without “phoney lox.”

  31. Leah Says:

    Does the demon belong to Myfanwy the Welsh goddess or Myfanwy the pterodactyl from Torchwood? I would so like it to be the latter.
