The Film Score Monthly message board has a phenomenal thread going on where people are tossing out the most outlandish concepts...
My favorites:
I WANT small independent dramas about troubled relationships to be scored with full symphony orchestra and choir for the entire running time. And a theremin. And anvils. (Richard Street)

I WANT bra commercials to be scored with the 'blaster beam!' (gumdrops1)

I'd like to see a film replaced instead of the score. (walldeckers)

I WANT porn films to be scored in the style of Carl Stalling's cartoon music! (gumdrops1)

Yeah? Well, I WANT Bugs Bunny cartoons to be scored in the style of porn films! (Richard Street)

I want a movie about Appalachian hillbillies scored entirely with duduk, tabla, sitar and wailing Arabic laments. (Jon A. Bell)

Conversely, I want a movie about Tibetan monks scored with Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Glenn "I wasn't drunk; I was over-served" Campbell country music songs. (ibid)
For the record, I don't know if I'll be able to see a bra commercial ever again without hearing that distinctive "Bwaaaaaaaannng!" sound in my head. Oh no! What if I can never see a bra again without hearing that distinctive "Bwaaaaaaaannng!" sound in my head!!!

When I actually stop to think about a Carl Stalling porno score... think that the movie would be absolutely worthless as porn, but that the music would be outstanding. Think of all the tasteless details that Stalling would pick up on...

If you need a slight chuckle, you may enjoy this video of drunk driver caught by police.
