Yakety Sax (2:01)

Cover of Yakety Sax

From Yakety Sax and 40 other releases

Famous as the “Benny Hill” theme tune, this is a comic virtuoso piece for alto sax (ideally with a pianist and a good drummer/percussionist). If any other brass players are hanging around they may be tempted to throw in the odd thing or two.

    Memories. Song is embedded in my brain after all these years from watching "Benny Hill" so much in the 1970's half-baked in a cloud of thick hazy smoke & laughing my ass off. : )

    After Benny Hill show aired here, this song reminds me of Benny Hill and other characters running in a chaotic chase scene. My son found several videos on YouTube that feature this song including a funny Star Wars video.
