The lunatic, the lover, and the poet
Are of imagination all compact.

Yeah, that's what Kermit's on about: Shakespeare.

The second song was my grandfather's audition piece. It got him into the stage band of the 22nd Engineers and out of the range of Boche shells. It makes me existentially sentimental.

Hee Haw was an awful cracker variety show, back in broadcast days. Every week, they sang a new version of Pfft! You Were Gone with cute new lyrics for the guest star. And yes, you had to watch it: it was the Law.

I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls is the song that Maria sings in James Joyce's Clay. And this one has the verse that Maria skips.
Port na bPucai means Lament of the Fairies and may be based on the songs of humpback whales, coming through the floor of a Blasket Islander's coracle.
Goodbye Tony is the German version of You Don't Own Me. Not entirely unlike Rita Pavone's Arrivederci, Hans.

And how far can one push eccentricity in the Internet Age? Well, we're finding that out, right now.

Some of the weirdest waltzes I've never heard!!! I would never have thought of "I Love Lucy" in this context, but I guess you're right . . .
