Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
This may be a response to King David’s Songs of Ascents, or an idle evening’s work by a wierd mathy geek. Either way, we like it.
Hat-tip: Derrik Jordan
More likely a response to Bob’s Subterranean Homesick Blues?? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vx4pRyEtit4
Weird Al is a fairly well-known American satirist. This is fairly typical of his work (which I say with the utmost admiration).
Satan, oscillate my metallic sonatas!
He missed, “O, grab me, Embargo!!!!”
I saw Weird Al perform live once. It was wonderful! His “Amish Paradise” is not to be missed.
