Boots Randolph, Mr. Sax Man

July 4, 2007 @ 3:42am

Boots Randolph, the saxophone player who created the 1963 instrumental masterpiece "Yakety Sax," died yesterday at the age of 80.

Yakety Sax was best known as the theme song to both The Benny Hill Show in the 80's and our Blogsmith CodeJams. I would load it up in my Yahoo Music Engine and put it on loop. The team would either hear it directly or, if they forced me to wear them, through my headphones. It was like an mental endurance test.

Yakety Sax enjoyed another brief resurgence in popularity last week when I linked to the shrimp on a treadmill videos.

What a brilliant song.
