2003 Award
Beethoven's Wig
(Rounder $12.98 Score:) A witty romp through the classics! Unless you consider trifling with classics an offense, you'll love this collection of zany lyrics set to Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, and other composers of classical music. Although some of the lyrics are uneven, young (and not so young) listeners will get a laugh along with help in the game of "name that tune/composer." Beethoven's Fifth is likely to bring to mind the words of "Beethoven's Wig" and Mozart's "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" may henceforth bring to mind a sleep-deprived singer who finds no sleep by counting sheep. Definitely not your Leonard Bernstein's "Young People's Concert" material-more like PDQ Bach for the very young and less sophisticated.
