"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

Tom Lehrer: Live in Copenhagen

Tom Lehrer spent his brief, yet remarkable music career writing and performing brilliant satirical songs that entertained and enlightened millions. Biting, intelligent, and socially conscious, his songs were accessible and intimate commentaries on society and politics in the 1950s and 60s. “Tom Lehrer: Live in Copenhagen,” originally filmed for Danish television in September 1967, captures a rare concert recording and features many of his best-known songs, including: “I Wanna Go Back To Dixie,” “MLF Lullaby,” “We Will All Go Together When We Go,” “When You Are Old And Gray,” “I Hold Your Hand In Mine,” “Send The Marines,” “The Irish Ballad,” “The Elements,” “Smut,” “The Hunting Song,” “My Home Town,” “Who’s Next,” “Poisoning Pigeons In The Park,” “National Brotherhood Week,” “Wernher Von Braun,” and “The Vatican Rag.”
