Soundtrack: Tom Lehrer - The Elements
This song is one of Sinatra's best, but is often dismissed. The harmony is simple, but reversed in gender. Nancy sings the lower harmony (although in a higher octave). Yeah. You care. But listen anyway...the harmony is subtle and brilliant:

Frank and Nancy Sinatra - Something Stupid


You all should hear this because it's a lost classic. Some of you learned it in camp. Alas, I never went to camp. I learned it from me mum's record collection:

Brothers Four - Sama Kama Wacky Brown


This one's just cool and geeky and whee, Tom Lehrer!

The Tom Lehrer is entirely too amusing for words. Have you heard the rest of his stuff? I always get strange looks for being able to recite it . . .

I know too many Lehrer songs to be considered sane. Somewhere there is a video of "The Elements". I used to have it but my old HD is no more. Wah.

Yeah, my dad used that to teach his physics/chem class when I was in high school. Then went on to play a Lehrer tape for philosophy . . . I come by my addiction honestly ;)
