It has been a misleading and misappropriating conception for the masses that they can not bear to entwine the genre of comedy with the world of musical progression. From a bystander’s point of view, music and comedy are two opposed genres diametrically. However, historical evidence has shown how comedy music was born in the entertainment industry to hook catchy melodies with silly lyrics to make a fun experience.
It is later in the mid-80s when comedians integrated music into their comic standups (known as acts) during those times and built this genre to keep entire careers revolving around outstanding pieces of comedic tunes. It is the origin from which musical parody took birth and became one of the top reasons for debut artist to further unfurl their talents in this peculiar genre called comedy music.

Popular Artists –

The sole purpose of the genre of comedy music is to excite the audience with the funny and splashing music and make them laugh with the parodic lyrics that depict the socio-political conditions of contemporary times humorously. Some of the most popular artists thriving on this genre begin with the most popular name of “Weird Al” Yankovic in the era beside the likes of Michael Jackson and Madonna, The Lonely Island who intertwined pop comedy with hip-hop funk, The Squids who mixed comedy with punk rock spectacularly, etc.

Dance music – what should you know about it?

Like we are all aware, this type of music is composed to accompany dancing. This could include either a piece of some larger music arrangement or an entire piece of music. During the mid-’60s, a new style of music was developed, and it was called funk. So, in this type of dance music, the rhythmic grove has its centre. There is a major stress in the rhythm of funk music is the first beat of the bar. Another cool thing about funk is that its groove can continue for a long time without changing the chords.

Some insights into the history of dance music

Disco

Back then, in the ’70s, the nightclubs were called discos, and they were hiring DJs to play some cool tracks for their crows because that was way cheaper than hiring a band. Initially, they were playing up-tempo soul and funk tracks, but then in the mid-’70s, they started laying an easier track to which people could groove better.

Techno

This is yet another genre of dance music that came up in the ’80s where the club DJs started making electronic tracks. Drum machines were used to create electronic rhythms. Also, synthesizers were used along with the keyboard to add melodies and chords.

EDM styles

After the audio editing software availability, producers found it easier to create newer pieces of music without much hassle. With this, EDM music was born, and many artists started using the software for better-detailed editing.
Europe, striving in the heyday of the musical genius package in paramount comic strips, also spread its influence of the Broadway theatre and other seminal shows that affected the face of New-Age entertainment and showed a particular different course of life in the corpus of entertainment and arts.
