Sorry to everybody at the office for the YouTube-heavy post, but I’m besotted and bewitched by an Independent Lens film I saw last night about the Young at Heart Chorus. Man, oh man. Amateur choral singers everywhere are chartreuse with envy. We want to back up David Byrne! This is the Next Big Thing, I’m tellin’ ya. I limited my picks to 3, but YouTube has enough of these gems to keep me safe from getting anything done this morning. Prenez vos mouchoirs, seriously, y’all.

And For Those Who Need Extra Assistance With Their Crying
Fred Knittle. Who’s got better phrasing than Fred? Who?
Thank me later,
