You are spending 'way too much time poking around YouTube, but I loved this one. Laughed and laughed.

Thanks so much for posting this. I have my music appreciation students create "creative listening guides" to accompany pieces of their choosing. The idea is that many of them don't have the analytical know-how to explain a piece in music theory language. (Some turn in scripts, storyboards, powerpoints, videos, etc.) This is a great example of that idea carried out really successfully, so I'll send it along to all the students. They've already studied that movement and heard Peter Schickele's baseball take.
