Music Theory Humor

As I was cleaning up some things today and putting away some folders and notebooks, I found this transcript of an actual conversation I had with a friend via text message. I am so glad that I wrote this one down! See if you can pick up all the puns…even a few school-related inside jokes as well.


Me: Did you know that the letters of your name can be rearranged to spell the word “evil”?

Levi: Mwahahahaha…

Me: Wait, are you the evil one? Or is he? :O

Levi: …

Me: You’re sneaky, like a deceptive cadence.

Levi: I’m not half the cadence I used to be.

Me: Yes, you’ve been severely diminished.

Levi: Also a little ritarded.

Me: But I hear that doctors are offering augmentation pretty cheaply these days.

Levi: I need to stop wasting my money in bars.

Me: Yeah, you just can’t measure up to J where drinking is concerned.

Levi: I don’t think we’re in the same set class.

Me: No, but you’re a tone row away…

Levi: Yet octaves apart.

Me: Your lives are majorly parallel. But really, it’s all relative.

Levi: You’re right. We should look past the minor mistakes.

Me: Definitely. Even a seemingly egregious error can be minimalistic.

Levi: Yeah, we should focus on our common tones.
