    1. I put the songs in order on my i device and listened along as I read the music It was wonderful If you don t know Tom Lehrer, I highly recommend that you look him up I know there are plenty of videos on the interwebs It s amazing and somewhat sad that the social and political commentary is still spot on after 50 years


    2. Of course, there s no such thing as too many songs by Tom Lehrer, whose career as an academic mathematics has interfered with his genius for satire.


    3. Back in the day when I studied voice I insisted on working up a few of these pieces and drove my voice teacher crazy singing them Great stuff.
