Pipe Down: Why Pan Pipes Are the Tits

Pan Pipes are badass

Today my eyes were opened to the world of the pan pipes. I finished work, threw off my clothes, opened a beer, munched down some Mini Cheddars and sat down YouTubing pan pipe covers of popular songs from days gone by. It was glorious.

Pan Pipes are badass

I can’t quite say what drove me to the wondrous sounds of the Pandean pipe but there is just something about the haunting quality of the bamboo flute that immediately makes a good song thoroughly unforgettable and seems to be able to fit to music of any genre or perfect for any situation.

I am now of the belief that if I ever get married, I want my first dance to be accompanied by pipes, I want my first child to be birthed to the sound of pipes and I want to be laid to rest with a set of pipes. Piping is a not just a style of music but a lifestyle choice.

I would like to share with you all, hopefully converting a few of you on the way, to the beautiful airy toot that sits ever present in five of my favourite pan pipe covers. Join me on this journey, you’ll have a proper smashing time.
