Today we're going to look through our assortment of those odd, miscellaneous instruments such as gongs, kazoos and theremins. They can add an unusual touch to a musical arrangement. What are some of your favorite examples? Indicate the instrument and we'll put together a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Cake "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" (vibraslap)

B-52's "Give Me Back My Man" (glockenspiel)

The Dresden Dolls "Coin-Operated Boy" (toy piano)

Joanie Sommers "Johnny Get Angry" (kazoo)
