I know this isn't all tubas, but here's my favorite brass piece:

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
- Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001)

Si fractum non sit, noli id reficere.

Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when he grows up, he'll never be able to drive in New Jersey.

For you tuba purists:

May I offer a song?

From the inimitable Bonzo Dog Band:

If you have never heard of the Bonzos, you have missed out on the musical equivalent of Monty Python. In fact, The Bonzo's Neil Innes went on to create much of the Python's music (he is the minstrel who sings about, and torments, "brave" Sir Robin inthe "Monty Python & the Holy Grail" movie). He also wrote most of the songs for the parody of The Beatles, "The Rutles: All You Need is Cash".

You can listen to the song below at this lnk:

TUBAS IN THE MOONLIGHT
The Bonzo Dog Band - 1968


Through the twilight, I can hear the humming of a melancholy coon.
(mm-mm)
For the memories that still linger, I thank you mister Moon.
And, although I've never smiled,
Winter, summer, autumn too,
Now here's one tune to remind me why I feel so blue-oo...

Tubas in the moonlight, playing for me all night,
Tell me what I want to hear.
Am I only dreaming?
Am I only scheming?
Stars above me, shining brightly.
Why can't she be sitting here beside me?
Tubas in the moonlight will bring my loved one home.

(Instrumental)

Tubas in the moonlight will bring my loved one home.
