Video of the Week: Tom Lehrer–We Will All Go Together When We Go

Tom Lehrer, the wickedly smart (multiple math degrees from Harvard, teaching gigs at his alma mater as well as MIT and others) shows that his musical and lyrical talents are equally keen in this satirical ditty.

Considering his musical career was a secondary avocation, his abilities are astounding. He could devastatingly satirize with a lyric, and his command of key modulation was astonishing. Both traits are on display in “We Will All Go Together When We Go”.

If you think Weird Al is good, Lehrer will blow your mind.
