Tom Lehrer

On the occasion of the mathematician's 90th birthday, someone chose Lehrer's best 10 songs. That's a task I wouldn't attempt because I love all his songs, but here goes.

10 - Folk Song Army

9 - Poisoning Pigeons in the Park
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNA9...ature=youtu.be

8 - Silent E
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91BQ...ature=youtu.be

7 - The Hunting Song
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQyo...ature=youtu.be

6 - Masochism Tango
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TytG...ature=youtu.be

5 - Clementine
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5u4...ature=youtu.be

4 - National Brotherhood Week
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgAS...ature=youtu.be

3 - The Irish Ballad
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47bK...ature=youtu.be

2 - New Math
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6Oa...ature=youtu.be

Any list that puts "Clementine" over "Werner von Braun" is patently ridiculous.

I agree with both of you, but this was one guys list and like I said, I couldn't do it.

I often wonder if he still performs or writes,
He has always been one of my favorites.

"The Elements" has very doubtfully ever been covered. It is a masterpiece and keeps growing.

Fun fact: the line about "a Girl Scout who is similarly inclined" (timestamp 1:26) was originally about another boy scout, but censors of the day considered a gay joke to be one step too far, so he had to change it.
