Anyone interested in that should come and hear our historical organs in the Netherlands
once the borders are open again, for a variety of temperaments!

It's a pity he doesn't touch on how composers distinguish key progressions,
for example writing in C flat instead of B because you came from G flat instead of F sharp.

Default You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille -Kenny Rogers

I love parodies! I think I first heard this on Car Talk. Not sure of the performers, then. But these guys are good.
But based on the original:
"You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille
Four hundred children and a cop in the field..."

You Picked a Fine Time to Leave Me Loose Wheel

These guys managed to amalgamate everything "Spy" (from Pink Panther to Bond and more and more) into this -

On such a summer's day!

I can't see the church
Or San Francisco Bay
Well, I'm coughing on my knees (coughing on my knees)
Just want a clearer day (want a clearer day)
You know we need some rain and cold (need some rain and cold)
To chase the heat away (chase the heat away)

I just need to tell her (I just need to tell her)
We should leave today (We should leave today)

And Sam Clemens was from Missouri? I suffered from a cold gale on Fisherman's Wharf in August in the 60s; but my frame of reference was that of a skinny 9 year old from the Texas Gulf Coast.
