Sif Feller: Music to Break a Lease

Men and women gather in a room and sing songs in unison! Many of them have actual singing experience! Like the flu pandemic, 8 of these 12 catchy songs were popular prior to 1919. To honor the millions who died, most of these arrangements feature a middle section where the chorus breaks it down and sings each word staccato! As you can see, listening to this record has hurt my brain, and now it can hurt yours, too. Readers who may be concerned about my health should rest assured, however, that it took only five minutes longer to restore this album’s audio than it took to listen to it. This 1956 LP was meant as yer basic one-off joke, yet the true, exquisite horror was yet to come…

Hail, Hail, the Gang’s All Here
Down By the Old Mill Stream
I Want a Girl (Just Like the Girl That Married Dear Old Dad)
If I Had My Way
(Wedding Bells Are Breaking Up) That Old Gang of Mine
The Beer Barrel Polka
You Are My Sunshine
Shine On Harvest Moon
Oh, You Beautiful Doll
Let Me Call You Sweetheart
(The Gang That Sang) Heart of My Heart
For Me and My Gal
