Odetta does Dylan songs that noone else does -- majestic and strong, invested with much meaning.
Freberg's oddball takeoff on Dragnet.
Yes, I played a marching band song not from Stony Brook's band. The familiar name here is Willson, who wrote Music Man (Till There Was You, 76 Trombones, etc.). He apparently served under Sousa himself for about 2 years! (He followed that with time in the New York Philharmonic.)
Rajaton (Finnish acappella) reminds us that we may not want what we wish for.
