This is another example of hitting to all fields. Quite a wide selection, though everything is from the 20th or 21st Century. Only thing missing is a piece from the album Passages, the great collaboration between Ravi Shankar and Philip Glass.
We start with the parody of the Beatles and end with the vile mocking of everything that is good and decent by my personal hero Tom Lehrer. Did I already mention that he's a mathematician by training? If I haven't before, I am glad to do it now.
I broke one of my "rules" and put in a more recent recording of Hoagy Carmichael playing his tune Rockin' Chair. I chose the shortened version of Chris Thomas King's tune from the scene in O Brother Where Art Thou, with the main actors listening to the song by the fire. Etta James showed up last week, but The You Tubes didn't have that song; it's got this one. I know dguzman will be happy to see the Buffy soundtrack tune in the middle.
