Tom Lehrer : The Vatican Rag

1 comment:

  1. Wow. Video of Tom Lehrer. I've been a big fan of his old recordings (made before I was born), but I had no idea he was such a little skinny guy at the time. He looks nothing like I imagined him from his voice.

    Vatican rag is one of my favorites.

    But most of his recordings contain the spoken banter between the songs and I think that's really important for the context. Cut that out and just have the songs alone and it's just not the same. (He seems to be a good comedian in spoken form too.)
