‘Poisoning Pigeons in the Park.’

Let’s lead off today with the music video. Because at the moment I pretty much got nothing, sorry. Up late and up early and I just wanna read Conan novels or something today.

Happy vernal equinox!

“Who’s Next?”

When I first really got into Tom Lehrer, this was… well, That Was The Year That Was. In other words, by then it was just another relic of the Cold War. Which we had happened to win, and so everything was great. Which it was!

But there is never an End To History.

‘A Christmas Carol.’

A Christmas Carol, Tom Lehrer

I think of this one as a cynicism bleed: I listen to it, get it out of my system, and go on to enjoy the holiday.  Or something like that.

‘The Irish Ballad.’

…What?  This isn’t that awful.  OK, maybe it is – but it’s light-hearted.  Sort of.

“A Christmas Carol.”

It’s that time of year again!

“Pollution.”

Pollution, Tom Lehrer

Not to be heretical or anything, but there was a reason why Nixon set up the EPA. Lot more birdsong now then there was when I was a kid.

“Silent E.”

Silent E, Tom Lehrer

Two reasons for this one.  First, I keep wanting to sing a dirty version of this song.  Second, it has no wider meaning past grammar.
