Is that it? I mean, eh, I don't know. Did I mean BLOW instead of whistle? Should I correct the title?

For example, king kong is a favourite of mine...

I can a lot, but these are very difficult themes, so sometimes I can fail some sounds
I can also play some themes on drums

I find myself whistling Zomby Woof a lot. Especially those little fiddly bits between the vocal lines.

Almost accurately:
  • T'Mershi Duween
  • Little Umbrellas
  • Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance
  • Oh No
  • The Orange County Lumber Truck
  • Holiday In Berlin, Full Blown
  • Waka/Jawaka
  • Don't You Ever Wash That Thing?
  • I Promise Not To Come In Your Mouth
  • Tink Walks Amok
  • Music For Electric Violin And Low Budget Orchestra
  • RDNZL

The one I know the best is Waka/Jawaka.

The Black Page #2 would require a special training to be whistled perfectly.

I think I've probably at least attempted to whistle a majority of them. How good they sound is another question. Thank god they are still in my head when I do it. :roll:

I can't whistle. Not at all. I've actually got a better shot at changing pitch with my asshole during very long fart.

--Bat :shock: :wink:

And the Lumpy Gravy theme!

Say Bat, ever tried playing hand-flute? I used to play Bobby Brown on that (nice and easy) but it made everybody nuts...

Sorry but I have to ask
Sheesh :roll: Bonny, what ARE you TALKing about? Like, OhmiGAWD, what does 'handflute' mean in your dictionary? Where you put two hands together in front of your mouth maybe and the whistle sound that you direct with your hands while you blow??? Tho I've seen that done all sorts of places, like Appalachian Bluegrass festivals, say, but not very often and never heard it often enough to hear Bobby Brown!!!!!! Am I hopelessly lost in a Candid Camera episode from 30 years ago?
