S5E216 - Tom Lehrer 'More of Tom Lehrer' with Jeff Greenstein

That Record Got Me High Podcast

Emmy-winning writer Jeff Greenstein (Friends, Will & Grace, Parenthood, Desperate Housewives) knows a thing or two about comedy. So it's no surprise that a record that got HIM high as a young impressionable adolescent ALSO made him laugh. A lot. The songs on 'More of Tom Lehrer' by singer-songwriter/satirist Tom Lehrer combine wickedly-clever wordplay with an absurdist - at times dark - sense of humor that clearly influenced Jeff's future work.  "And we will all go together when we go..." Songs featured in this episode: I'll Be There For You (Theme from 'Friends') - The Rembrandts; Sail Away - Randy Newman; Country Song (Pandering) - Bo Burnham; Poisoning Pigeons in the Park, Bright College Days, National Brotherhood Week - Tom Lehrer; Stein Song - Rudy Vallee; Homeward Bound - Tufts Beelzebubs; Land Of The Glass Pinecones - Human Sexual Response; A Christmas Carol - Tom Lehrer; O Tannenbaum - Vince Guaraldi Trio; The Elements - Tom Lehrer; I Am The Very Model Of A Modern Major General - Gilbert & Sullivan; Oedipus Rex, In Old Mexico, Clementine - Tom Lehrer; Clementine - Jan & Dean; It Makes a Fellow Proud to Be a Soldier, She's My Girl - Tom Lehrer; Rockaway Beach - Ramones; Crazy - R.E.M.; Venus In Furs - The Velvet Underground; The Masochism Tango - Tom Lehrer; Kiss Of Fire - Caterina Valente; We Will All Go Together When We Go - Tom Lehrer; My Bologna - Weird Al Yankovic; Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life - Eric Idle; We Will All Go Together When We Go - Red Leicester Choir
