Bill Withers Live at Carnegie Hall

A Duck in a Microwave – and other music jokes

Soul singer Bill Withers was one of the most universally loved performers of the rock era – does anyone not enjoy nuggets like ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ and ‘Lean On Me’. As well as his music, Withers was also the subject of one of my favourite music jokes.

How do you turn a duck into a soul singer?
Put it in the microwave until its bill withers.

Here are some other favourites:

Rick Astley will let you borrow any movie from his collection of Pixar films except one. He’s never going to give you Up.

Q: Why were the Byrds great?
A: They set Bob Dylan songs to music.

Q: What’s brown and rhymes with snoop?
A: Dr. Dre

Q: How come U2 still haven’t found what they’re looking for?
A: Because the streets have no names.

Do you have any favourite music jokes to add?
