Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Songs from HMS Pinafore
Here is a bit of trivia that, perhaps, some of you have picked up on. But, first. I love all the G&S canon---perhaps my favorite is Iolanthe---but--hell, the brilliant rhymes of Gilbert and the satirical points---amazing.
OK--the trivia. If any of you watch Larry David---Curb Your Enthusiasm you may know this---at the really punch line moments--in all episodes---what music do you think it is? Instrumental--not lyrics.
Answer: Three Little Girls From School---Mikado.
