  • Yakety Sax

    This is going to sound like an odd request, but anyone know where I could find a drumless track for Yakety Sax by Boots Randolph? Some of you may know this song as the Benny Hill theme...

    There are many versions of this avilable for download as free MIDI files:

    http://www.geocities.com/enchantedfo...0/yaktysax.mid

    http://home.earthlink.net/~wolfz3/midi/yakety.mid

    If you Google "Yakety Sax midi" you'll find many more, which may or may not be the same as these three (which are slightly different from each other). As with all free MIDI files, the note accuracy varies between versions.

    You could record one of these from PC to TD-12 via MIDI, and then mute the drum track in the pattern sequencer.

    I think you would be very fortunate to find a drumless version of this as an audio file.

        That is a completely different song.

          Yes; but the composer of Yakety Sax apparently based the instrumental on the sax in The Coasters' song Yakety Yak, so there is a link:

          With guitarist James “Spider” Rich, Randolph wrote a version of what became “Yakety Sax,” inspired by the Coasters hit “Yakety Yak.”
          Boots Randolph, 80; versatile musician recorded `Yakety Sax’
